FRESH STOP PORT ALFRED MIXED: 17 th February 2018
It could not accurately be described as either rain or drizzle, but rather just a wet mist that pervaded
the course on Saturday keeping the 29 players cool without becoming too wet. A 2-to- count
Stableford alliance was played in drawn mixed gender 3 and 4-balls.
The 5 bonus points for being a 3-ball were sufficient for Kevin Maree, Martin Lambrechts and Lynn
West to win the competition with 85 + 5 = 90 points. Dee Jones-Phillipson, Graham Turner, Bryan
and Margie Reid came home second with 86 points.
The weekly Energade drinks issued by the sponsors for resuscitation purposes to the covey scoring
fewest points went to Jane Briggs, Dave Kirk, Donald and Maureen McGarvie on a count out from
Guy Cash, Eric Segers, Tim and Greg Shanks, both covies carding just 80 points.
Dee’s drive was closest to the pin on the 8 th to win the sponsor’s bottle of wine on offer.
Eric Segers (8 th ), Brian Reid (11 th ) and Andy Hough (13 th ) all made par three birdies on the holes
indicated. Excellent rounds were forthcoming from Kevin (gross 78, nett 64) and Andy (gross 79,
nett 68). Brian also netted a fine 69.
