GREEN VALLEY

STABLEFORD

Just like the weather during the past few weeks and, probably the next few weeks, the weather was hot and steamy with no prospect of rain. But one strange thing has pricked my curiosity. The cards, the concrete disks on the tee and the board on each hole have measurements to the middle of the green, so why have Green Valley suddenly altered the fairway distance markers to measure to the front of the green. The familiar markers, which could be seen from everywhere on the course, have been replaced with a stick which resembles a cricket stump. Strange!! It seems that 36 points was the favourite number today in the man’s competition, for there were four of them. Dougie Crowe(8) stood on the 16th tee with 35 points fully expecting a successful day but 1 point in the last three holes placed him in 4th place losing out to Jeff North(10) on the last 6 holes who stumbled on the back nine with 3 points in 4 holes, Lloyd Shuttleworth(4) whose putting, in his own words was shocking, for his claustrophobic ball refused to find the hole and with genuine birdie opportunities on 12 holes had to wait until the last hole to find the long awaited birdie for 36 points and 2nd place. A visitor from UK, David Kellerway (9) despite only 2 points on holes 14-16 had 37 points to win the day. Miss Ooh (21) had 4 one pointers on the front for 36 points and 4th place whilst Miss May (11) had 8 pars and 1 birdie in her round but most of these were on the front 9 so 17 points on the back restricted her score to 38 points and 3rd place. The ever present Miss Porn (21) had a much improved back nine to claim 2nd place with 39 points but the runnerway leader Miss Pin (19) had 3 birdies and 4 pars in her round to finish with 45 points. Four 2s today going to Miss Pin, Miss May Dougie Crowe and Jeff North.
