  • Goodbye 16th green

    LAST Sunday, the 16th green was dug up by the ground staff, as part of the preparations for a newly configured 16th hole.

    The strips of grass were offered to members for their own lawns, and anything left over will go to the race course to green up the viewing areas.

    Nothing is going to waste.

    Because of its proximity to the third green, the 16th has been perilous at times, with players teeing off on the third and often coming too close for comfort to players on the 16th green.

    As a result, the tee has been moved as will the new 16th green.

    To the hacker’s eye, it looks as though the 16th will be a much more challenging hole, bringing into play some trees that were no issue before.

    It should keep all golfers on their toes.

    In the meanwhile, a temporary green has been marked out for the 16th.

     

     

     

     

    Eight players went out on Tuesday in the nine hole stableford, which was won by Sheryl Sargent with 14 points.

    Second was Pam Abbott on 12.

    Wednesday’s competition was also stableford, with 12 ladies playing.

    Winner on the day was Sam Bailey with 29 points from Lesley Anderson on 28.

    Sheryl Sargent took out the nearest the pin on the third hole, and Millie Cumming took the 16th.

    Lesley Anderson won the 18th hole shootout and Norma Friday was nearest in the putting competition.

    Line balls went to Sheryl Sargent and Millie Cumming, both on 28, and Robyn Baker on 25.

    Only two players went out for the nine hole on Thursday, with Jan Konik winning with 12 points.

    Saturday’s stableford was contested by five ladies, and the winner on the day was Millie Cumming with a good 34 points from Shelley Comerford on 27.
