Another day at the office for Clem Rhoden playing in the Bravehearts Stableford event on the 2nd nine holes at beautiful Maclean Golf Club last Tuesday.
The course was firm with greens like velvet and putting was very slippery. With a winning score of 20 points, Clem took home the bottle of Pelican Point red wine for dinner. Now, normally he would have been disqualified for playing off the wrong markers but as he actually made it harder for himself by playing the blue tees instead of the white, we did not. He has, however, earned himself a reduction of 2 strokes off his handicap. Excellent golf mate, we all applaud your remarkable effort. In second place was John Hopkins on 18 points nabbing the box of chocolates which he shared around. He also scored the Italian on the Hill free drinks voucher for a close shot on the 11th hole for the NTP prize. Third place was Gary Taylor on 17 points, claiming the Sassafras voucher prize, with a really hot and cold round. Several other players complained that they fared the same and are hoping for some consistency in next week’s competition.
Bruce Johnston was nearest the pin on the 17th winning a bottle of wine.
When he left (for Lennox in the camper) before the prize draw, he was not expecting such good news as he wasn’t impressed with the rest of his round.
There’s room for more players so join us next week at the Maclean Golf Club for 9am tee off. It will be a Stableford match on the 1st nine holes, everybody welcome.
