Just a few days after the Singha Tournament had finished and the course was still in great condition. The greens were slick, the pins and the flags (all were white so no indication of the position of the hole) were in the same position as they were on Sunday and we discovered areas of the greens that were, previously, unknown to those playing on a Wednesday. One thing those in the tournament did not have to experience is the plastic rings that are clearly visible and will stop your ball dropping in the side door for the rings were not there just the metal hole casing so why are the members that support Green Valley regularly exposed to these plastic rings that cause so many problems? The difficult pin positions were, perhaps, the reason that scores were somewhat below par. The winner of the ladies, Miss Eng, came in on top with 35 points with three 3 pointers on the way home for 19 points which was that little bit better than Miss Kran on the same score with only 16 on the back nine with three 1 pointers and a blob to blame. Miss Lynn had 20 points on the front nine which included 7 pars but her game fell apart at the turn for a total of 33 points. The men also found things difficult with only Selwyn Wegner playing better than his handicap for 38 points with five 3 pointers in the last nine holes which was 4 points better than Jerry Sweetman for 2nd place. Auke Engelkes came 3rd with 33 points but he can blame 4 holes which gave him only 1 point on each but this was 1 point ahead of Wayne Cotterell in 4th. Selwyn was the only 2 today with an unlikely birdie on the 13th which could not have been any longer anywhere on the green – ‘it was in all the way’ he said. Noddy Moyle celebrated his birthday today and generously put up a prize for nearest the pins and these went to Miss Eng, Miss Sa, 2 to Miss Kran, Bill Marsden, Auke and William Macey who admitted to anyone that cared to listen that he won the prize with the only decent golf shot in his entire round  William
