Green Valley in great condition with greens that not only hold but a very fast to putt on. The fairways are just superb to play off hopefully it will stay that way for ever more. With 8 groups playing we were away to a good start in perfect weather for golf. It was the Haven Consultants Trophy today generously sponsored by Brian Chapman the CEO of the company and a very good friend of the Billabong, The winners today were all in the 60s with Peter Thomas took 3rd place with a net s ore of 69, Peter LeNoury got beaten in a count back with 68 nett, I might add the 8 shots he took on the par 4 15th didn’t help his cause. Top spot went to Lloyd Shuttleworth with a gross 73 off his 5 handicap to record 68 also and take the trophy. There were 5 twos coming from Nick Farazerley, Stan Rees, Lloyd Shuttleworth, Dave Smith and Mark Wood. In the ladies division there were 3 groups playing and the scoring was not as good as usual, normally the girls score very well here but not today even under the perfect conditions they played in. Taking 3rd spot was Miss Kran with 72 nett, her being beaten on a count back by Miss Nu also on 72 nett the winner of the Haven Trophy was Miss Tan with a net 69. There were no twos today from the ladies.
