Milford Haven and its associated golf course was the venue for our December outing. A good turnout of twenty five players braved the very windy but dry weather, however the course was in excellent condition. As this was the last 2014 fixture, members had a chance to improve their positions for the annual awards to be presented in January. Several bettered their targets considerably and hence moved up the league table. Overall, scoring was excellent on a difficult day.
Players went off quickly as the course was quiet and we were allowed two tees. Off the 1st in threes were: Tommy Tiger Woods, Mike Mo Allen, and Roger Analyst Handcock; Shaun Chatterbox Taylor, Simon 3-piece Sweet, and Wynne Andy Capp Richards; John Pashmina Perrott, Wyn Phileas Fogg Hopkins, and Steve Gizmo Jones; and lastly Dave Boy Green, Steve The Dragon Hellyn, and Allan Snuff Gawith.
Off the 17th were: Keith Director Leverton, Trevor Santa Lewis, and Simon Swan Davies; Anthony Wiseguy Ryan; Kelvin Curtains Boughey, and Simon Simples Wood; John Silver Haired Hughes, Barry Nippy Neale, and John Dynamo Richards; and lastly in buggies Derek Wishy-Washy Jones, Darrell Smoothie Jones, Peter Peroni Hughes, and Roger Doombar Woodward. Unfortunately the Jones boys’ buggy broke down at their first green and they had to walk the rest of the course. Shame.
The average Stableford score was 26.25 a commendable effort on the day. Particular mention must go to Mo who managed 29 points playing off scratch! Also, Dynamo who greatly improved on his previous outing by scoring 31 but unfortunately out of the prizes. The Dragon scored well despite it being his first outing for some time after breaking his thumb. New member Snuff performed well, coming in with 27pts. Welcome to the Society Snuff. The loss of their buggy affected the Jones boys who had lower than usual scores, whilst Doombar, Curtains, Santa, Pashmina and Tiger vied for the Wooden Spoon, which they eventually avoided.
After a meal and some drinks in the bar the prizes were presented as follows:
1st Keith Director Leverton 34 pts, on a better back 9 from
2nd Simon 3-piece Sweet 34pts, who had a two on the 6th
3rd Simon Swan Davies 33pts, with a two on the 16th
Nearest the pin on the 6th was Trevor Santa Lewis
Longest Drive on the 17th was Steve The Dragon Hellyn
20+ handicapper was Anthony Wiseguy Ryan
Team prize went to The Director, Santa, and The Swan.
Wooden Spoonist was Steve Gizmo Jones with a dismal effort.
Thanks to everyone for attending and hope to see you and other members at the January 14th fixture to be held at Priscilly Forest GC where we will have a post Xmas meal, distribution by raffle of unwanted Xmas presents (don’t forget to bring one), and the Annual Awards presentation.
