Green Valley

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH

STABLEFORD

A number of Billabong regulars were sitting around the bar having a few cold ones after golf when Auke Engelkes, not having played today, made a surprise visit with his lovely wife and, before ordering a drink, rang the bell and announced to everyone that they were wanted to share the news that they were expecting twins in the near future. Hearty congratulations to both of you. 30 golfers today on a beautiful morning with a gentle breeze ready to take the course apart and whilst waiting around the 1st tee it is interesting to notice that there are so many different ways to propel the ball down the fairway for, as someone once stated ‘golf is an awkward set of bodily contortions designed to produce a graceful result’, and the word graceful certainly applies to the ladies and the result is often spectacular. Miss Sa (18) had 20 points on the way out with 3 pars and 1 birdie but a blob on the 10th restricted her score to 38 points losing the countback to miss Porn (19) in 2nd place but she was also pleased to record 7 pars in her round. The ever present Miss Noodle (12) must have had a quiet word with herself at the turn for she then scored an additional 22 points to win the day on 38 points. Following his 46 points on Monday, George Barrie (22) had 2 blobs on the back nine but still had 19 points for 5th place 3 behind Wayne Cotterell (12) on 37 points who was let down with 3 holes that produced only 1 point on each which included the 18th which gave William Macey (20) the opportunity to win their personal challenge by 1 point for 3rd place. That old warhorse Jeff North (9) claimed 2nd place with 38 points dropping only 1 shot after the turn but Peter Eggleton (17) started off well with a birdie on the 1st and never looked back taking 1st place with 40 points. Three 2s today going to Jeff North, Brian Cooper and Julie Battersby

Phoenix Gold but very wet

Phoenix Gold today after the rain storm we had over the last week or so there were no carts off the cart paths which makes it for a not only hard day out for some but a long day also. We started with

Rayong Green valley on a soggy morning

It was a tad wet going to Rayong Green Valley this morning and it was raining quite hard when we got to the golf center for our normal cup of coffee but after about 20 minutes it stopped and we never

We Are Back on Line again.

Phoenix Gold today, the course was in great condition as usual and quite busy with a steady flow of golfers all around the course. With four groups playing it was quite a fast round with no holdups at
