Wild wallops Green Valley

first_imgJohn Hendry and his Mate Graham Stitfall were over from Canarvon, but unfortunately Graham got a cracked rib and was playing in all sorts of pain.  Impressive perseverance and enjoy your trip up to Nong Khai mate and get some rest.There were some fantastic scores in today and four ‘2’s also.  When a score of 36 points from Gus George only gets fourth spot you know the field has scored well.  Third place went to Bruce McAdam with 37 points, second went to Dayle Shier with 40 and in first place was Kevin Wild who finished with a magic 46 points.  This is the second time in his golfing career that he has broken a hundred gross and he couldn’t stop smiling even as he rang the bell.The ‘2’s came from Dayle Shier, Mark Wood, Peter Lenoury and Bob Philp.Friday, August 9, Crystal Bay – StablefordWith six groups we set off from the bar a little early because sometimes travelling to Crystal Bay can get a bit hectic in the traffic and today was no exception.  The course was a little rough around the edges and the greens with different grass here and made for a good challenge.We said hello today to Brad Sproxton and goodbye to Bill Rogers, who was going home to Melbourne and hopefully coming back at Xmas.There was a three-way count back for second, third and fourth places, all on 35 points, which was headed by Brad Sproxton with 21 on the back nine while Darl White (18) took third and Eng Cotterell (17) fourth.  The winner meanwhile was the Capt. Bob with 38 points.There were two ‘2’s coming from Bob Philp and Owen Walkley.Note:  If you are looking for a game with some friendly golfers give Bob a call on 082 204 3411 or call into the bar we are just off Siam Country road looking straight down Lake Maprachan.  Also, if anybody is looking for a right hand R1 there is one for sale for 10.000 baht.  Just give Bob a call and he will put you in touch with the vendor.  He assures it hasn’t been used properly since he bought it! The Billabong Bar Golf SocietyWednesday, August 7, Green Valley – StablefordGreen Valley is our normal venue for Wednesday and with eight groups taking part it was a grand day out.  Everyone enjoyed themselves today as this course is manicured to perfection; the greens were top dressed the previous week and they are now as good as you will putt on anywhere.  The fairways on 17 and 18 have been scarified but that didn’t make any difference either. We were off to an early start and it was a four hour round for easy golf.  John Mills had a big night the night before and had to call it quits after eleven holes and call a taxi to take him home.  I don’t think the flu had anything to do with his condition, just a little over indulgence.Green Valley winners.last_img
