Mike Jeffries Leads the Way with 41 points.
85 players travelled Hwy 331 to the Treasure Hill course, which is currently in overall tip top condition. Although the weather was hot & humid, there was just enough breeze to keep it from being too oppressive. We played from the forward yellow tee markers today, but still the course provided a solid challenge for all.
Mike Jeffries (15) was the only golfer to break 40 points on the day, leading the B grade home by a clear 4 points to Tom Thompson (14) with Pierre Bietry (20) getting 3rd spot a further point behind on 36 points. The A flight (0 – 10) was a tightly contested division, with Jim Cleaver (9) the winner with 37 points, to go with his 2 technical prizes, while Jonathan Pratt (9) got 2nd on countback 18/16 over Jeff Wylie (8) after both signed for 36 points. The C flight, for handicaps 21 and up, was the most tightly contested, with all placegetters shooting the same score of 32 points. After multiple countbacks, the placings were as follows, Long Drive winner on the 9th in the under 55 division, Sami Sarajarvi (27) 17 on the back 9, Doug Jasper (22) 16 on the back 9, with 3rd going to Jan Johansson (24).
The Low Gross required a countback, to separate Bob Watson & Paul Smith, after both shot a commendable 77 off the stick. Bob getting the goodies, with his back 9 of 39 to Paul’s 42. Only a small contingent of Ladies again this month, with Nut (20) leading the way with 33 points.
Several multiple winners in the technical prizes, getting their maximum 2 prizes, among others, were Paul Smith, Jack Grinvold, and Leo Ruuskanen.
BBQ King Dave was away, but his trusty sidekicks kept all attendees well satisfied with their tasty offerings for the night. We will all look forward to another successful tournament with next month’s event at Eastern Star on 24 June. Contact Shane on 0859459689 to ensure your preferred tee time.
