FRESH STOP PORT ALFRED MIXED: 11th NOVEMBER 2017
Despite forecasts of a strong easterly wind, which materialised, 26 players pitched for the draw to be drawn in 3 and 4-balls to contest the weekly Freshstop mixed stableford alliance competition. An air of desperation was apparent with some players being denied their golfing fixes by rain earlier in the week.
Winners on the day, handling conditions superbly, was the team of Heather van Harmelen, Glynnis Renecle, Nick Oosthuizen and Derek Sinclair with 89 points. Second, and a little behind, on 85 points were Sandy Fryer, Lizzie Lambrechts, Barrie Brady and Paul Fryer.
Conditions did not suit Martin Lambrechts, Liz Mangham, Maureen and Donald McGarvie and their return of 74 points was sufficient to earn the sponsors Energade for the day.
The only 2-club of the day went to Martin on the 6th and Margie Reid collected the bottle of wine for closest the pin on the 8th.
Only two sub 70 rounds were recorded being Bridget McNelis and Lizzie both with 69’s therefore Bridget was rewarded for the best round not in a winning covey.
