The Kilgetty Golf Society held their 3rd restart since Covid began at St Davids City Golf Club last Wednesday, despite an ominous weather forecast.

27 attended including 3 new members.

For once their luck with the heavens didn’t hold out and we started in high winds and light rain. Anyone who has ever been to this lovely course will appreciate what an effort it is to even hit a ball in the winds directly coming off the Irish Sea!

Regrettably they called it a day after 9 holes and repaired to the pub, or rather The Grove Hotel, for warmth and sustenance.

Suitably fed and watered, Steve Jones presented the prizes as follows, bear in mind the points only reflect 9 holes:

Alan Sayers won the Longest Drive, ably assisted by the strong wind, must have been a 60mph gust when he hit it! Unsurprisingly, no one won the Nearest the Pin prize which should have been renamed the Nearest the Green, or even Furthest from the Tee! Similarly, there were no Two’s.

Our stalwart Kelvin Boughey won the prize for best over 28 plus handicap with a score of 13. The Wooden Spoon was a close contest between Graham Watson, Steve Cross, and John Hammond. Steve won it for the first time to the delight of the other two.

The rest were blown asunder by, in 2nd and 3rd place with 15 points, Graham Longster and Dave Crowley respectively. Dave, Keith Hubbard, and Chris Lawrence won the team prize.
However, our overall Champion High Flyer was Bond, not James, but Graham Bond with an unbelievable 17 points and his first ever victory with KGS. Congratulations Graham.

A 3 shots cut in handicap awaits him at our next fixture on March 13th at Carmarthen Golf Club. More details on www.kilgettygolf.co.uk . More new members welcome.
