Rupert Jones continues good form to win betterball stableford

Rupert kept up his recent good form with another last Wednesday, this time in the company of Deane Jooste with 41 points in a betterball stableford.

Not much to report on the previous week’s games with last Saturday’s game a complete washout at Scottburgh Golf Club.

However an individual game was played last Wednesday with Rupert Jones taking a one point win with 38 over second placed Wayne Simpson.

A bit of a subdued field with most expecting inclement weather which really didn’t materialise.

Rupert kept up his recent good form with another last Wednesday, this time in the company of Deane Jooste with 41 points in a betterball stableford.

Second with 40 points running the winners closely were Graham Brown and Tony Power.

Rupert found the hidden holes with Bob Hall and Geoff Thommasen rolling in 2 clubs, Geoff’s reward was short lived as his prize money went towards the Stone along with Mike Eley for company.

The washed out game was rescheduled for last Saturday sponsored by the golf shop and the clubhouse restaurant.

There was a great turn out with some old faces returning, notably Luke Cubitt back from his successful first year at university looking a bit like Rambo – food must be good down in Stellies.

The ladies also joined us and the stage was set for a great day’s golf.

Darren Walker and Pumba Joubert took the field with 44 points and just one point ahead of Pete Gilliver and Simon Cubitt on 43.

In third also one point behind were Alan Eriksen and Derek Cowden. The ladies were next with 42 posted by Debbie du Toit and Pathma Moodley and completing the prize winners were Tony Power and Alan Hawkins on 40.

Nearest the pins went to Darren Walker 2nd, Russel Freeman 5th, Deane Jooste 10th, Coenie du Bruyn 13th and Jack Cubitt 17th.

There were a host of birdies on the par threes with Darren having 2, Dave Sirey, Simon and Jack Cubitt, Pete Gilliver, Russel Freeman and Barry Kisten.

The hidden holes were found by Herman Grotious and Mandy Jones who by the way along with Hayley Gilliver hoisted Stone Last. But all was not lost as they each won a half jack of brandy all good for the Christmas cake or pudding and a bottle of mixer.

Darren Walker had the game of his life scoring a 65 gross, a score I’ve never seen before in a long long time. Well done Darren.

This Wednesday (15th) is a combined stableford and this Thursday’s (16th) public holiday it’s turkey trot time played as a threeball alliance. With our up country cousins coming down, it’s best to get your name down as we’re expecting a full field.

Flyers footnote: Not only are three putt greens probable, sometimes they’re an achievement.
