It goes without saying that here at Woodbury we are prone to be on the end of certain rumours. This phenomina has left us, sometimes in disbelief, that anyone could manufacture such tripe. Needless to say at the time of going to press we are solvent, the course has never been better at this time of year, the owner has not run away with the lady that works in the 'halfway house', but has been riding a motorbike around South Africa for a local charity, writes John Bridgman.
As we move into a period of rejoicing and goodwill let us believe in that goodness, and wish the gossips a little cheer until the next unforeseeable crisis hits Woodbury Park!
Now for the important things – the golf! Trevor Yeardley won the midweek stableford with 35 points from Steve Jarman on 32. Neil Howe came third on countback also with 32 points.
The seniors were out and about playing a multiplier stableford (where they get these games from, beats me.) Terry Welsh, Roy Barber and Rod Dart beat Steve Unsworth, Derek Knight and Adrian Foster into second place, also with 115 points, separated on countback. Third place was taken by Mike Prew, John Kelly and Trevor Yeardley with 102.
Last Sunday was a four-ball team club event whereby each player is invited to bring a prize.
That way no one should lose out (says he, tongue in cheek). Rick Wallace, Ceri (Taff) Lewis and Mike Bird plus a ghost player came home with 89 points from C Tonking, Martin Moxey, Duane Greenslade and Domonic Wilson with 88 taking second place.
In third were Stuart Winks, Gary Bourne, Alex Freer and Mike Smith on 87. This proved to be a close run competition, and our thanks to those who provided the prizes.
So, another week has passed us by here at the place of mystery and intrigue.
Let it continue I say, otherwise it would never be quite the same for me putting pen to paper.
Remember the saying: “The pen is mightier than the sword” but I’m sure you know, its no good in a fight! Happy whacking, cheers John.
