A duck did its bit at Oliva Nova

TWENTY-FIVE members of the Montgo Golf Society turned out for last singles Stableford competition at Oliva Nova Golf.

That it was a very warm day was reflected in the scoring although the overall winner, Peter Ketteringham with a score of 38 points, didn’t seem to have a problem.

There were two “twos” from Fiona Sankey and Susie Snelling, so the pot went to the girls and as it was a roll-over from the previous week, they did rather well.


Nearest the Pin on Hole 16 went to Susie Snelling and Nearest the Pin in

two on Hole 5 went to Donna green, so the women outclassed the men again.

Peter Cornes had a 30-foot putt for five and just as he hit the ball, a few ducks decided to walk across the green.  His ball hit one of them on the foot and deflected into the hole, so he had a net birdy (lucky guy).
