Silky Oaks Sat 6 Feb

Our Saturday golf had been up and down in numbers, but this Saturday we had a large turn out of 22 players at Silky Oaks. This included a tour group of 8 players which played in their own competition, so with 14 of us playing in the "Pot & Skins" competition, it is an ideal number for this format of competition.

A lot of people dont know how a pot and skins format works, so let me briefly explain. Everyone plays the normal stableford competition from their normal handicap. Whoever has the skill to get the lowest net score on each hole, wins that hole, and if multiple players has the same lowest net score, that is carried forward to the next hole. 3/4 hcp is used in the calculation of the players handicap to determine which hole indexes he/she gets shots on. Still seems complicated? The computer works it all out and all that I need to do, is enter the scores as we normally do for all competitions. I simply print out a report which shows all players net scores and who had the lowest score for each hole, and make a few sum additions. The fun thing about this format is that you can have a terrible round, but on a certain hole, you score that elusive birdie and you may end up with a good number of skins. You are therefore never out of the game in this format, no matter how bad your day is going.

On the other side of the spectrum, a player doing well like Per Loevgren, scored 37 points twice in 2 weeks, and never got a skin for all his efforts as he didn't get a good enough net score on any hole to win the hole outright!

Another example of why this is a really social and fun day designed for those guys that want a social game and a laugh with the boys, rather than a regular competition. Join us and try out this fun format - every Saturday at Silky Oaks.

Silky Oaks Fri 2 Sept

Surprisingly few complaints from the players today - last week we heard from other society's a lot about the greens being super slow, but most people I spoke to thought the course was in fair condition (definitely not the place to go to every time, but ok for an occasional knock). 

Silky Oak's is playing relatively easy from the white tee's (although some high handicappers still have tremendous difficulty even clearing the first hole), but all in all scores being reasonably good.

In the B division, Neil Fidele came in 3rd place, followed by (Andy) Andrew Makara in 2nd place, and winner on count back, the ever dangerous Eddie (Edward Beilby) with a fabulous 41 points and 21 on the back nine. 

In the A division, Jack Butler once again made it into the prize list with his 36 points, followed by Sel Wegner on 38 points for 2nd place. Steve Planthas been on a really good run since his return from the UK, and he once again won the A division with a superb lowest gross of the day 81 giving him 40 points.

Silky Oaks Fri 2 June

Again due to yet another comp at Green Valley the Outbackers were pushed side ways onto Silky Oaks. The reports received were very complimentary towards the course and its condition, a total of 20 players set to making it a nice even 4 ball day. There were 6x2s which resulted in adjusting the day to 1 flight paying 5 places.

The skillfull recipients of the 2,s were: Bruce Mcadam, Barry Fisher, David Davies, Michael Elhert x 2 and Charlie Heneghan.

As to the comp itself there were 4 players sharing 37points broken down on Countback in the following order.

 5th place Mr Wayne Cotterell, 4th place Neil Fidele, 3rd place Ian Perry, 2nd place Kim Danboise.  I am sure there were a few “if only's” from these guys.  King of the jungle the lad from the valleys Mr Charlie Heneghan with a magnificent 41 points, who informs me had a girlfriend from the town in Wales named LLANFAIRPWLLGWYNGYLLGOGERCHWYRNDROBWILLLANTYSILIOGOGOGOCH

Bet he never sent her any Valentine day cards!!!!!

Well done Boyo.

Silky Oaks Fri 28 July

Charlie Heneghan has been in good form lately and today was no exception. Scoring a blistering 42points from the relatively easy white tee's is still a very good achievement on this course.
