Montgo Golf Society played a Stableford competition for the James Randall Trophy today 8th November. Our sponsors were Marion & Neil Carter.

There was a very cold wind at Oliva Nova today and this resulted in generally low scores.

Our winner today was John Ross with 34 points off 26.8, second was Richard Fox with 32 points off 18.0 beating Celia Cronin also with 32 points off 16.9. We had 3 nearest the pins and these were won by Alan Skinner on the 3rd with 1.16m, Gordon Gleeson on the 16th with 3.1m and 2nd shot on the 18th was Brian Redfern with 3.45m. We had 1 tow toady and a coveted Montgo Bal was won by Hans Duner.

We welcomed 1 guest Dirk Knape.

Next week is a Texas Scramble sponsored by Sally & Arthur Burrowes.

There was a complaint made today of slow play against one group. We must ensure that when playing we keep up with the match in front to avoid slow play. Should we receive further complaints then It may be necessary to appoint one person in each group to manage their group to ensure that others are not held up.

Montgo GS Stableford competition

On Friday 5th October Montgo GS played a Stableford competition sponsored by Sue Burman and Dennis Hammond. The October weather was excellent for golf as it normally is at this time of year, but the Oliva Nova course continues to be in disappointing condition with 3 temporary greens and scarified fairways. There is a lot of work going on but it is still frustrating for our members who have become accustomed to the best presented course in the region.

We had a later start than normal with Levante GS’s Captains day ahead of us on the course, but we got round in the regulation 4½ hours, so no complaints there. Scoring in general was about average, given the course condition, with the exception of 3 players who all came in with 40 points: Richard Fox (3rd), Sally Burrowes (2nd)  and winner Gordon Gleeson, placings being decided by countback. Luckily for them there were no handicap adjustments in this competition because of the state of the course. Coming in distant 4th with 35 points was our other Sally (Cottrell).

There were NTP prizes on offer for men and ladies on the 5th (in 2) and 16th holes. The men’s winners were Wolfgang Schuster and Ian Bonser, but no lady got on the 5th in 2, and Sally Burrowes collected the prize on the 16th at a distance of 15 metres. Now that is wayward for our ladies!

At the presentation after the competition it was great to see founding member Jan Jones back and with the great news that she has had the sign off from her doctor to start playing again, having been laid low with a bad back since early in the year. We look forward to having her out with us again in the very near future.

Next week we will be holding our annual Captain vs Vice-Captain match.

Montgo GS Rose Bowl Medal competition

This year´s Rose Bowl Medal competition, sponsored by our favourite golf coach Paul Tolley, was hotly contested by Montgo GS on this last Friday of August.  The weather was again perfect, but the course is now looking a little tired following the deprivations of a long, dry summer.  However major repair works begin next week with the implementation of a couple of temporary greens.  No doubt the course will be back on course very soon….dýa see what I did there…eh…

So for those unaffected by the odd bare patch on the greens, net 70 seemed to be the favoured result with the top three players all having the same score.  Our friend countback soon sorted them out much to the dismay of our Captain who was hoping for her first victory of the year.  It was not to be as best back nine went to Gordon Gleeson in first place, second place went to Captain Cooper whilst our third net 70 player was John Day.  As I am writing this though, I feel it was a joint victory for all three!!  Fourth place went to Penny Barden with a net 72.

All the prize winners…except our Captain, took home additional prizes as NTP on the 3rd went to a pleasantly surprised John Day with 7.57m.  NTP on the 16th was claimed by our champ Gordon Gleeson with 2.06m.  The two coveted balls awarded went to Penny Barden and, yep him again…Gordon Gleeson.

A special prize for the ´most travelled´ player was awarded to George Braddick who I´m sure will make the most of his free lesson with Paul Tolley.

Next week, due to the maintenance work, we are having a fun game sponsored by the Society.  The format is yet to be decided.

Three club funday for Montgo GS

This week we returned to a fun format of three clubs and a putter as a little light relief prior to next week´s battle with Pego, which I am sure we are all looking forward to.  Our sponsor this week, John Day, provided bags of goodies for all our winners. 

In the same vein as those received by attendees to the Oscars…although the Breitling watch was missing from mine so I shall have a word next week.  But to be honest I much preferred the Hobnobs, bag of wine gums and choccies that were in the bag.

Those proving that three clubs and a putter really are sufficient for a round of golf were Peter Gardiner in top spot with 36 points, and Denise Cooper in second place, with 35 points. It was yet another family affair this week, with Glenys Cuming losing on countback to take third with 35 points, but beating her hubby, Neil, who came in fourth with 33.  So mixed emotions for Glenys this week.

The two NTPs went to Brian Redfearn with a very impressive 46cm from the pin.  Poor Shaun thought he had it with 4.28m until Stella pointed out that the 460 written by Brian was for millimetres and not 4.6 metres.  NTP on the third went to Denise Cooper with 4.30m.  So she (ME!) has gorged herself on yummy treats all weekend.  Brian also took home a coveted Montgo ball as you´ll be pleased to hear he did not miss the putt.

Next week, as mentioned, we have our annual battle with Pego.  It’s a shotgun start at 9.00am so don´t forget to allow enough time to get to your starting positions. Yes I can hear you all muttering that I´m a fine one to talk but these things have to be said.
