The Italian Job
Kilgetty Golf Society’s latest jaunt was held at Derllys Court Golf Club in Bancyfelin. The weather forecast foretold of thunderstorms with lightening! But it was dry throughout – so much for weather forecasters. Our members are a savvy lot and 30 ignored these warnings by turning up and enjoying an excellent day’s golf.
I shall group the score into the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Those who didn’t score too well on the day through whatever reason e.g. a beginner, never played the course before, too much to drink the night before, etc etc. were new members Dave Camper Crowley and Phil Effervescent Andrews; Mike Slippery Skidmore, Graham Bubba Watson, Rob The Builder Nixon, and Edward The Confessor Morris. Despite his low score The Builder managed to win the Longest Drive prize. As it was so long and he was first out, everyone following thought that he had forgotten to place the marker, as none could see it. Afterwards, some cheekily suggested he had planted the marker where he thought it couldn’t be caught!
The 30’s included the bulk of the players. Towards the bottom of the pack were Derek Archie Campbell, Wayne Chopsy Connett, Steve Banbury Cross, Ian Greenball Gregson, Dai Iawn Hunt, Graham Victor Longster, Barry Nippy Neale, and Wynne Andy Capp Richards. Exactly half way with 35 were Adrian Ambulance Alman, Alan Snuff Gawith, and Alan Jeffers Jeffrey. Whilst in the top half were Graham Basildon Bond, new member Dafydd THE Dafydd Davies, Martin Dangler Davies, John Hamster Hammond, Steve Gizmo Jones, fourth new member Howard Halfpenny Lacy, Simon Seedy Millett, and Mark Hoops Taylor.
Basildon, THE Dafydd, Gizmo, and Seedy were only one putt short of the 40’s group which comprised Meurig Careful Evans, Roger The Analyst Handcock, Peter Swiss Tony Tarry, John Merlot Viner, and Jack Zabaglione Zeraschi. Well done to you all – great scores boys. So who took the prizes?
Merlot came in with 40 points; fourth was The Analyst with 41, just losing out to third placed Swiss Tony on a better back 9; second with 43 points playing off a handicap of 9 and hardly putting a foot wrong was Careful; but the winner with 45 was, you guessed it the Italian Stallion – Zabalione! Congratulations on your win, and a well-deserved cut of 3 in your handicap.
Other prizes went to: Best Team – The Analyst, Jeffers, and THE Dafydd. Nearest The Pin – Nippy. Longest drive and Wooden Spoon – The Builder. 28+ handicap – Basildon. Whilst Andy Capp, Nippy, and Ambulance all had two’s.
A great day at a lovely course, and thanks to the Walters family for such a friendly welcome, and a good spread afterwards. We are sad to see you go and send our best wishes for the future.
