P.S.C. Golf from Tropical Bert’s
Tuesday, 24th February: Phoenix (Stableford) It is the end of the Month again at Bert's, and that old carrot, The Alan Bolton Golfer of the Month, comes to the fore.
This month there were only 4 players with a chance to win and Frank Pilkington lead Steve Hamstad by three points and was thus a strong favourite. Steve had to win his Flight and Frank came out of the places for him to win.
We had a good turnout early at Bert's, and many of them were tucking into 'Bert's Golfers Breakfast'. Then into cars and down to Phoenix where we were to play the Ocean and Mountain Nines! On reaching Phoenix we were quickly booked in and then we were told to get to the first tee and go.
The Course was in its normal fine condition, with a little breeze to cool us down, but when the breeze dropped it was hot; looks like the hot weather is here. We were not held up ahead until we were well into the back nine, so the round went well.
With Bert's golfers special waiting back at 'The Ranch' a few people ate in the restaurant, but most had a cold one and then departed. Still some of the later starters were a touch tardy so the wait was a long one, and the results were interesting.
Back at Bert's all were waiting and most were tucking into Bert's Golfers Special, Steak Pie, Chips, Gravy etc, and tasty it was after a day on the Course; thanks Bert and Pu for the thought.
So to the results in the A Flight, 0 to 16, the winner was Steve Hamstad with 37 points ahead of a three way countback on 35 points that saw Mashi Kenata in second, Perry McNeely in third and Kevin Dunne in fourth.
In the B Flight the scores were better. The winner with 41 points was Jack Robinson from Carole Kubicki in second with 38 points. We then had a countback on 37 points that saw Don Carmody in third and Tom Cotton in fourth.
Then we did the 'Alan Bolton Golfer of the Month' and Steve Hamstad won with a win in the A Flight that won him the points he needed. Well done Steve! T.T.F.N.
