Tue 13 th Feb: Drizzle permeated the course towards the end of morning as per the forecast which
was the probable factor that limited the field to 24 seemingly water-proof players. A 2-to- count
Stableford alliance in 4-balls was the format of choice.
Len Bohnen, Mike Dobbs, Eugene Erasmus and Graham Findlay carded a superb 95 points to win
the morning’s proceedings. They were four points to the better of runners-up Andy Stembridge,
Gavin Richards, Danny Tarpani and Heinz Czepluch.
Way behind on a paltry 78 points were Hamer en Sukkel recipients Mark Warren, Martin Weaver,
Cliff Roberts and Braam Coetzee.
Mike (6th) and Paul Fryer (8 th ) holed the only 2-clubs of the morning and good nett scores were
restricted to Mike (an excellent 64), Dale Wisener (66) and Graham Findlay (69).
Fri 16 th Feb: Pleasant conditions for golf resulted in 44 players registering for the draw in a 2-to-
count Stableford alliance with the Portuguese convention of a bonus point on any hole yielding
three nett birdies or better.
The rules and a solid show of dovetailing allowed John Muggeridge, Dave Kirk, Mark and Sheena
Warren to card 93 points and win the morning’s proceedings. Gerald Churchley, George Lake,
Derick and Heather van Harmelen sealed second place with a hard fought 90 points.
The day did not belong to Cecil Grobler, Mike Dobbs, Mike Beaumont and Heinz Czepluch as they
could muster only 78 points sentencing them to sharing the 19 th hole with the infamous Hamer en
Sukkel trophy.
The 8 th hole seemed to be a popular par three in which to sink birdies on Friday morning with
Heinz, Johny Johnston, Dave Kirk and Gerald all achieving just that. John Muggeridge made his 2-
club on the 11 th .
Good nett scores were carded by Lorna Kirk (66), Bryan Robinson (67) and Heather van Harmelen
