An ideal evening to play on a course that was in excellent condition so no excuses for bad play although one or two members would be keen to come up with some excuses, especially one of our members who originates from NZ, who according to his playing partners, lost 11 balls in the nine holes and was then heard to say that was now definately the end of his golfing career – will he come back and play again or is this really the end ? Again we had a very good turn out of members with over 30 players. So a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to James King for being starter and for the beers on the first.
We are moving along with the match play so do please keep to the scheduled dates for the completion of your matches both for the SHRM and golf shop competitions.
A couple of matchplay results:
Stefan bt Johan 4 and 2
Ian Doherty bt Ayzo 3 and 2
This year the Pairs is to be played on Tuesday 9th July at Canach and is being sponsored by Frank Maitry’s company. So please get your teams organised.

Please save this date – Saturday 28th September. This is an event with partners so have a word with you better halves and make sure it is in the diary. Luc is organising the evening and will be sending out more information in the next few weeks.
A polite reminder that as we are playing stableford if you cannot score on a hole please pick up and to move on so that we keep hold ups to a minimum.

We had two guests Keith Derby and Mark Hughes. Keith won the best guest but as he was not at the prize giving Mark picked up this award. However, with a score of 4 points , three of which came on one hole, he was awarded the more appropriate prize of a pink ball.
1. Stefan 23 points
2. Dave Winters 19 points
3. Gregor Dalrymple 16 points on count back.
However, as he was not at the prize giving this went to Tim who just beat Daniel, Woodge and Peter Baxter on the count back.
After 6 rounds Craig is still leading the overall Grand Prix on 81 points, Stefan is catching up very quickly on 75 points and Frank is on 73 points.
The pink ball award had a couple of fine scores as contenders but there was as an undoubted clear winner with 2 points. John Sutherland, who seems to be making this his regular award this season.
Our next event is on Tuesday 2nd July at Junglinster. The starter for this round will be Woodge.
