Day 39 – 41 20/6 – 22/6 Sawtell

Tuesday we played American Foursomes with Paul & Anita from Merewether. We had 75 which was good enough for 3rd on the day. This left us equal 3rd overall. The weather was much better with only a few showers.

Wednesday we played 4BBB Stableford. We played with Wayne & Jan from Mt Coolum (Wayne is the worlds best 23 handicapper, drives it down the middle, gets up & down from bunkers & putts like a demon. He had 3 –  4 pointers on the 3 hardest holes!).

We ended up with an ordinary 40 points after Ulrika slipped over on the 3rd hole & was covered from head to toe in mud. She was OK but it required an ensemble change. Played with her wet weather pants on & very little else! We ended up running 4th on the day & equal 3rd overall.

Weather was great.

What have you got on under those pants?

Today we played the dreaded Aggregate Stableford. This always sorts out the men from the boys. It was a seeded draw & we played with the honeymoon couple Wayne & Norelle from Tamworth. It was most surprising to see us all turn up dressed as a team.

Another beautiful day on the course with plenty of birdlife

Finally found a bigger ball marker than Ulrika to put on the fridge.

My NTP prize as ball marker

Anyway in the end I had 36 points today & Ulrika had 26 points which was enough to give us 2nd place on the day & 3rd overall, the prize being a couple of overnight bags.

The best 23 handicapper in the world & his wife won overall.

Final Results

Have had a great time at Sawtell. The caravan park is great & the surrounding area is pretty.

Off to Evans Head tomorrow
