A bright sunny day greeted twenty one avid Kilgetty Golf Society players to
links / parkland of Swansea Bay Golf Club. The draw resulted in the following threesomes; Dave Boy Green, Barry Chippy Wood and Keith Director Leverton; Peter Bandit Hughes, Wynne AndyCapp Richards and Steve Gizmo Jones; Martin FCUK Davies, Steve Eleanor Rigby and Trevor Santa Lewis; John Flutter Williams,Anthony Wiseguy Ryan, and new member Craig The Foreigner Susdorf; Stuart Delboy Evans, John Scribe James, and Simon Swan Davies; Mike Maureen Allen, John Pashmina Perrott and Kelvin Blinds Boughey; Tom Timber Woods, Shaun Chatterbox Taylor; and Roger Doom-Bar Woodward.
The course was still suffering from the winter rains, the bunkers bereft of sand but, the greens were not too bad. Scores were lower than expected, no-one achieving par. Group one came in with a total of 76pts, 23, 26 and 27 respectively. This was bettered by the second threesome, 26,30 and 25 for an aggregate of 81. The third trio improved the combined total to 83pts, 22, 31 and 30 respectively. The fourth combination went three better, setting a target of 86pts, individual scores being 28, 31 and 27. Unfortunately the progress was not maintained by group five. Delboy had a dreadful front nine, (8pts) followed with 18pts on the back nine, took him nine holes to warm up! The Scribe playing for the first time after an ileostomy operation in October, could only scrape together 15pts in 18 holes, it was easier walking the course being three stone lighter! The Swan had a bad day, struggled to 18pts. Sixth off trio had a good round, amassing 80pts, Maureen, on 2 handicap did well to score 29pts, Pashmina managed 23pts, and Blinds had a useful 27pts. Finally it was the turn of threesome six. Timber found the course to his liking notching up 33pts. Chatterbox had a poor round, 20pts, and DoomBar 24pts for a total of 77.
After an excellent meal, the distribution of goodies began. First of all Steve
welcomed Craig to the society. In first place with 33 pts was Tom Timber Woods;
second was Anthony Wiseguy Ryan and third was Steve Eleanor Rigby. Nearest the
pin, Timber at 5ft 6in.(about his height!) Longest drive once again went to
Chatterbox. 20 plus handicap went to AndyCapp. There were no twos. Team prize
was won by group 4, Flutter, Wiseguy and The Foreigner. The wooden spoon went to yours truly the Scribe, my drives were OK but the short game was atrocious.
