KILGETTY GOLF SOCIETY
For their August meet, 25 members of the Society (great turn out) set out in good spirits for Newport Sands’ attractively sited and challenging golf course; our optimism was rewarded with the most splendid weather.
On a gloriously sunny and warm day under the bluest of skies and with a
welcome light cooling breeze, first off (and setting a good target for the
team prize of 92 Stableford points for those behind them) were Kelvin
Curtains Boughey, Wynne Andy Capp Richards and Peter Peroni Hughes.
Curtains’ modest 22 points in the end realistically scotched any team prize
ambitions, but did not deter Andy Capp whose two under for his round had
him leader back in the clubhouse from early days, on 38 points (with two
blobs!), which no one could get near to – our clear winner, well done.
Following on, Rob The Builder Nixon, Steve Gizmo Jones and John Silver
Hair Hughes carded betwixt and between rounds, with Silver Hair’s 2 on
the 5th the highlight. Next, John Pashmina Perrott, Tom Tiger Woods and
Keith Director Leverton carded distinctly underwhelming rounds;
fortunately for them there was no wooden spoon team prize, but Tiger, off
his game like his less well known name sake, grabbed the individual
wooden spoon trophy.As a bonus he managed to hit a car on the 17th as well!
The next two three balls out, Dave Boy Green, John Magneto Richards and
John Spindles Hargrave, followed by Wyn Nomad Hopkins, Roger Analyst
Handcock and Bob Dixie Forrest (grabbing the nearest the pin prize on the
16th) just failed to pass the first group’s team score, though Magneto came
in second overall, helped by a two at the 16th. Immediately behind,
spurred on no doubt by the efforts of those ahead of them, Barry Nippy
Neale, Anthony Wiseguy Ryan and Andy Popeye Bevans cleaned up the
team prize by 8 points (an impressive total 100 points), Nippy taking 3rd
place overall and Wiseguy topping the efforts of those of us with high
The last two groups, Roger Doombar Woodward, Simon The Swan Davies
and Mike Big Box Allen, followed by the four ball of Martin FCUK
Davies, Neil Junior Davies, Paul Goodvalue Marsden and John Flutter
Williams soldiered enjoyably on behind, most notably with Junior striking
the longest drive at the 17th.
A great day. Our chair Gizmo announced the introduction of a KGS Green
Jacket (kindly sponsored by Doombar, many thanks to him) to adorn each
months winner (doesn’t Andy Capp look splendid in it?): he went on to say
that our next meeting, on Wednesday 9th September, was at Derllys Court
Golf Club, Bancy Felin, nr Carmarthen, 10.30 tee off. At this point Nomad
expressed concern that the date coincided with his wedding anniversary,
but (perhaps ill advisedly) hoped his dear wife would kindly drive him to
and from the course so that he could have a good celebratory drink!
