Tue 11 th Sept: A beautiful calm warm morning combined with reopening of the greens saw 28

take first place followed by Neil Loundar, Chris Niebieszczanski, Bryan Robinson and Cliff Roberts

Fri 14 th Sept: The early morning draw saw 33 players enter to compete in a Stableford Alliance 2
scores to count. Conditions were calm and sunny to start with a stiff westerly building as the
morning progressed.
Seemingly finding the newly treated greens to their liking Martin Lambrechts, Russell Warren, Tom
Tagg and Eric Segers ran out comfortable winners on 90 points ahead of Neil Loundar, Therese
Loundar and Mike Beaumont in second spot on 88 (83+5) points.
Not enjoying conditions quite as much John Dell, Gerald Churchley and Guy Cash posted 76
(71+5) points to secure the much to be avoided Hamer & Sukkel. Not being present at prize giving
meant their 3-ball missed out on a surprise gift of a case of beer!
The par 6 th saw three birdies by Guy, Steve Daly and Dale Wisener in separate coveys thus ensuring
a carryover of the 2-club pool.
Neil shot the best nett, and the only nett below 70, of the morning with a superb 66 to attract further
attention of the handicapper.
