December 27th Stableford kitty competition

Image
Although the course had been extremely wet with several holes closed during the past 10 days today December 27th the weather was suprisingly mild and only 3 holes were closed....the 2nd, 16th and 17th. Some 16 Seniors turned out to play an individual stableford Results as follows:-
       1. Ray Martin 31pts


       2. Ron Roberts 30pts. He blamed his putter for not scoring more! He did however birdie the 8th.

However Ray wishes it to be known that Ron's birdie paled into insignificance to Ray's birdies on the 15th and 18th!
       3. John Kelty 29pts

       4. Dennis Jones 29pts

   Below Richard Key can be seen driving down the 13th. Superb drive and long! He got a birdie 3 and on December 30th playing again on the Sunday morning he attained the same score!
