Garnant Park

                              THE SCRIBE EXCELS IN THE RAIN

 

This month’s venture was to the picturesque hill course at Garnant Park near Ammanford. En route the windscreen wipers were busy and a soaking looked a distinct possibility. Seventeen stalwarts arrived at the club and enjoyed a coffee and bacon roll before the action began. Leading the way were Dave Boy Green, Shaun Chatterbox Taylor and Peter Bandit Hughes. By now the conditions were improving and Shaun took full advantage, scoring 35pts with his 14 handicap. Peter did not live up to his nickname but still managed a good score,as did Dave. Following them were Barry Chippy Wood, Barrie Tweeter Avery and John Pashmina Perrott. The two B’s set the pace with 32 and 34pts but were surprised by the vocabulary issuing from JP as his shots often failed to find the fairway, he looked a likely candidate for the wooden spoon! Next trio away were Paul Value Marsden, Kelvin Blinds Boughey and Steve Gizmo Jones. Each one failed to show much form, their combined total was a paltry 60pts. Now came a foursome, Roger Doombar Woodward, Keith Director Leverton, John Scribe James and John Bookie Williams. Early on the rain had eased and scoring was brisk, John J  starting with 9pts from the first three holes, praying his luck would last! By the halfway point the heavens had opened and shots began to go astray, a few balls were left for others to find. JJ still managed to collect 36pts but his partners were in the low twenties. Last away the remaining four, Anthony Wiseguy Ryan, Graham Victor Longster, Wyn Ballhound Hopkins and Stuart Del Boy Evans. Anthony and Graham had a moderate round for the conditions but, Wyn and Stewart struggled, failing to reach twenty points. Thankfully the showers were hot, the bar well stocked and the meal excellent. After a short spiel, Steve began the presentations. In third place with 34pts was Barrie Tweeter Avery; second was Shaun Chatterbox Taylor, 35pts; in first place, taking the yellow cap, John Scribe James, 36pts, his first win for many moons! Winning the team prize, Barry, Barrie and JP. An unusual result in the longest drive, a tie between Stuart and Graham. Nearest the pin was Wyn, making up for his poor score. Twenty plus handicap prize went to Anthony with 27pts. The wooden spoon went to the winner of the longest drive, Stuart Del Boy, his chipping and putting must have been below par for his 15pts! Only one two was recorded, that was by Roger Doombar. Thanks to Garnent Park for their hospitality and to Station Garage in Kilgetty (Hyundai Dealers) for sponsoring the event. JJ
