In what was one of our busiest normal society rounds ever, we started the field with 66 players, quite a logistic nightmare when we were only at about 40 players 3 days ahead of the event. Pulling all the strings we could, we managed to get enough tee times squeezed in for our group, courtesy of the Valley Hackers golf society who agreed to play Silky Oaks, and good support from Management at Green Valley to make this possible. True in Outback style and pulling all the strings, we managed to accommodate everyone with some good logistics and organization on our part, something we have become renowned for.

However, on Thursday it was clear that there was trouble brewing when I was told that all 3 courses were fully booked, meaning only one thing: Not enough carts and caddies! So whilst Tawan were getting everyone organised and started in her magnificent way, I was trying to get our tour groups from Australia and a group of 12 players from Wales (not in the competition), and arriving about an hour after the first tee time, ready for their round. Things got a little unstuck as there were no caddies or carts left for these gentlemen who waited the good part of 30-40 minutes for caddies and carts. A forced delay from their startsheet time was unavoidable, but luckily we got on the tee with only a hole behind the groups in front of them, - no more than a scheduled 10 minute delay by the time the last group tee'd off. Welcome to the world of a golf tour organizer!

So with 5 prize winners across three divisions, here are the results: C division, long time since we have seen Geoff and (Kathy) Kathleen Mary Doody, Geoff came in 5th place with his 35 points, led by Ed Turner on 36, beaten on countback by Charlie Heneghan in 3rd. In 2nd place, Gerard Lambert scored a magnificent 41 points, but hero of the week was Stephen Watkins who once again claimed the top spot this week with a great 45 points.

In Division B, Vinnie Connellan beat a host of other players on countback to finish 3rd with 33 points, led by Sunanta Eng Cotterell on 34 points, Neil Fidele on 35 points in 3rd, (Bill) William Peach on 36 in 2nd place, and Dion Hyland playing great golf again on his 38 points to win top spot in the B division.

In the A division, with handicaps up to 15 this week, Raivo Velsberg scored 36 points for 5th spot, and so did Steve Gee, but with a better back nine. In 3rd place, Peter le Noury played a great 38 points, beaten by Sel Wegner in 2nd and our big winner of the A division this week was Peter Nixon with his cool 39 points.

Only three two's today, a bit unexpected for such a large field: Tony McDonough, Peter le Noury, and Jim Brackett.
