North Hill, 16.08.19

There were 18 golfers for today’s Stableford event under overcast skies with the occasional light shower of rain.  Course in great condition even after the recent rains as today’s scores can attest.  The winner with 41 points was Don Bishop who also took out the birdie hole #7 in it’s first week.  Runners up with 39 points were Nigel Stubbs, Jack Cooper, Christian Friis and Andrew Ashton all with 39 points. A bit of slow play in the last group of the day taking five hours for the round and for the sake of those waiting in the club house please give this some careful consideration.  Mr. Park is returning to Korea for a few weeks and we wish him a fond farewell.  Well done to Nigel Stubbs on his birdie at #15 which many of us consider. to be the hardest hole, he has now done it twice. Today’s after game presentation was held in the new “Screaming Eagle” bar downstairs prior to it’s official opening next week but it will be back to upstairs Mix for us next week. Numbers are down in our Monday golf but not just because of the weather but more likely because of recent departures from our regulars.  I have booked two groups for next week but if we continue to struggle to make the numbers I will be cancelling the regular Monday booking for CMSG and leave it for the few regulars to organize themselves.

7 members for our round today, the scores were not to good as the course is playing very hard at the moment, some of which is likely due to the rough which in places is quite long and very hard to play out of, it certainly is a bonus if you can stay on the fairways. Todays results are in 1st place with 33 points was Tom Berger, coming home in 2nd was Jack Kuzina with 28 points.

Just a reminder to ALL, if anyone is interested in joining us in our upcoming Laos trip please contact Jack Kuzina,  johnkuzina@hotmail.com.  We are leaving on the 7th November and returning on the 12th. It is a fun few days days away with some great guys, plenty of swearing, drinking and eating with some golf in between
