South Pembrokeshire Golf Club looked after The Kilgetty
Golf Society right royally.
For their September meeting, the Kilgetty Golf Society played South Pembs Golf Club. The rain held off, the course was in great condition, views of the Cledddau as usual were splendid and the
club’s hospitality was top notch. Perhaps due to the late holiday breaks many members were enjoying, only 16 of us turned up, but a great time was had by all. Only five scored under 30
points and five 36 or more.
First out, John Hamster Hammond, John Hey Ho Heyhoe,
returning after a long break, and Wynne Andy Capp Richards
proved to be the second strongest team, particularly through such
a strong showing by the Hamster that led to him edging top spot
over the Analyst with 40 stableford points through a better back
nine. Rob The Builder Nixon, Ian Greenball Gregson and Allan
Snuff Gawith followed up, scoring modestly well, with The
Builder sharing the twos prize with Peroni, and Snuff bagging the
nearest the pin award on the tricky third hole.
What turned out to be easily the top team played next, Roger
Analyst Handcock carding 40 points to come second overall with
strong support from Graham Victor Longster and Jack Zabaglione
Zeraschi, with Zabaglione edging third place overall from the
Chopsy and Slippery, again through a better back nine in his 39
points than his two colleagues.
In the penultimate group, Wayne Chopsy Connett’s 39 points came
to nothing as regards the team prize as Kevin Bacon Roll Gregory
and John Javelin James performed modestly (though Bacon Roll
walloped the longest drive on the 17th hole). Some way back, as a
four ball, Peter Peroni Hughes, Simon Seedy Millett and Mike
Slippery Skidmore performed strongly with Slippery taking the
20+ handicap prize and Peroni bagging the other twos prize: but
John Pashmina Perrott edging of the wooden spoon put paid to
their team prize chances.
A great day out: we will be back.
