Played at Oliva Nova on Tuesday 19th of June 2018

On a fantastic summers morning , 41 Pego members set out to play a regular Singles Stableford Qualifier Competition at Oliva Nova Golf Club. The course was in just perfect condition, and by far the best course in the region, as was the weather, making for an excellent game of golf, which was reflected in the scores. The results of the main competition were as follows:-

Division 1

Andrew Harrison with 38 Points, and still maintaining this rich vein of form, playing off 16.1, Donna Green with 36 Points playing off 15.3, Russ Peters with 36 Points playing off 14.9

Division 2

John Nicol with 36 Points playing off 25.2, Jon Brun with 35 Points playing off 20.8, David Phillips with 32 Points, our Captain playing off 31.3

Nearest the pin at Hole No 5 with their second shot was Roger Brown at 1.56 meters, and at Hole 16, the winner was John Guest with 2.33 meters..

The star of the show, and featured in the photograph above was Shaun O’Gorman, who aced his tee shot at Hole number 3, so it was drinks all around in the clubhouse afterwards. Congratulations Shaun on a day to remember

The “Balls in the Water” prize was won today by Kenny Millar  with 98 balls so many congrats to Kenny.

Man of the week, has to go to Shaun O’Gorman with a great “Hole In One” at hole number 3.

Finally in the match play second round, the game between Ian Robertson and Peter Brown, ended with Peter Brown 1 up after 18 holes, and in the everlasting game between Steve Patton and Danny Herron, Steve triumphed after two replays by 4 & 2.

Finally, I would like to thank the management and staff ot Oliva Nova for the help and courtesy shown to members of both Pego and Montgo, during the playing of the Montgo Trophy .

It was appreciated by all concerned. For the record Montgo won by a score of 41 to 39, so the result hinged on one put going the other way, but, sincere congratulations to Montgo on a fine performance and winning the Montgo Challenge for the year 2018.

Next week, on Tuesday 26th of June at Oliva Nova, we are playing a Team Accumulator Competition, so should you want to join us at Pego, please contact Penny Barden at, and we would love to see you.
