D.O.G.S. Third Round at Rancamaya Golf Club

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,

Our third week at Rancamaya saw another good turnout with 54 players making the “no traffic” journey down the toll. The weather looked a bit more ominous but the rain stayed away and we got off on time with the usual shotgun. Play was a bit slow, just a gentle reminder to keep the pace up please, but all were finished before sunset which is the main thing!

A big welcome back to Arne and Rosie Tjaden, great to see you back after a long absence, also welcome back to Leith Day and a big welcome to newcomer Sebastian Krack. A big thank you to Johannes Spies and Sebastian Krack for the generous supply of IOI Beer, very much appreciated and they are also supplying more for the big weekend next week!

Obviously the craft beer works as Sebastian Krack managed to take one of the Nearest to the Pin prizes with Rey Moore taking the other. The ladies prevailed again with Okkie taking one of the Longest Drive prizes but the men through Dave Prosser took the other. Indar Dhaliwal and Tribhuvan Singh took the Drive & Pitch honours.

Simon Oxley had his putter working becoming this week’s Putting Champion. Laurent Bessieres was this week’s Booby Prize winner and Sandra Novita clearly enjoyed her Saturday afternoon stroll through the countryside and got the Most Exercise doing it!

Simon Reynolds must have thought his Lowest Gross would be enough to win the top prize but alas it was only good enough for the Runner Up honour. So this week’s Champion and the winner of the Little Dog was Terence Martin.

Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

So with only one round to go in this shortened Eclectic Series Jude Alexander’s lead has been cut to 1.5 making it wide open coming into next weekend’s final round. Check out the full results though the links below or though the mygolf2u app. The Lowest Gross average will be determined over 3 rounds this time and it’s still wide open!

So now we come to the big weekend next week at Rancamaya. Just to remind everyone…..

The weekend begins Friday afternoon, approximately 12pm tee off with the regular
