Today we played a favourite 4 BALL BETTER BALL competition. The recent maintenance work on the course particularly the greens has paid dividends as the condition of the course is much improved. Considering the wind there were some fantastic scores 3 x scores of 38pts and 2 x scores of 41pts and 2 x scores of 42pts fantastic Golf considering the wind but the Sun was out to make it all the more enjoyable.

2013: Texas Scramble (10 April)

Today was to be our Monthly Medal competition. However, the tees were still heavily sanded after the recent hollow tining. Consequently, the yellow tee boxes, on the front nine particularly, were placed on the red tee area.  So our Captain decided to play a team game instead, i.e. Texas Scramble.  We had a mixture of three and four balls and although the four-ball teams had a slight advantage by being able to use 4 putts, a three-ball team came first. In fact, one of the players of that team wanted the Captain to allow his team four putts.  Well, Clive, you did not need the extra putt after all !!

For once, there were no guests today.

Nearest the pins :
Hole 4            Doris Shearman-Earp
Hole 8            Les Wilkinson
Hole 11          Brian Hines
Hole 14          nobody managed to get on this green today, maybe due to the heavy wind

Also there were no twos today..

As for the main results:
5th place with a net 65.7 - Peter Corbett, Brian Hines, Jim Reid, Terry Malone
4th place with a net 65.0 - Bob Crow, John Webber, Les Wilkinson
3rd place with a net 64.9 - Edi Rogers, Jeff Murten, Santi Hung, Doris Earp
2nd place with a net 64.5 - Richard Davis, Stephen Grey, James Burnet
1st place with a net 63.8 - Clive Dresner, Angel Centenera, Chris van Bemmel, despite having only three putts available and Angel who was playing with an injury.  Very well played!
