Night Golf - 16th October, 2021
Over the weekend 28 avid golfers split up into 7 teams and headed out to a moonlit Mullet Bay Golf Course to show off their skills. With a full moon expected for Wednesday October 20th it was clear that this “Hunter’s Moon” was in the minds of the participants of the tournament as proven by the zest with which the teams battled in the dark.
Geared up with glow in the dark ,golf balls and a pair of flashlights each team was trying to score as low as possible. After a fierce battle, lost balls and near hits the surprising winner of this year’s Moonlight Scramble was Team ‘Mayhem’ consisting of Chris Gibbons, James Park, Tim Ahlip and Jacob Streefkerk who ended the 10 holes stroke play event with a total score of 33 net.
Second prize was won by the “Graham Crackers” team of SMGA’s eminence grise Keith Graham accompanied by Mark Hanauer, Gitte Poulsen and Frank Jespersen with a total score of 35 net.
Third prize was taken by the “Play Team Homme“ which comprised of Fred Boureau, Chim Cohen, Ludovic Brun and Laurent Mesguich with a total score of 35 net as well, but the team’s handicap was lower.
After the golf a prize giving ceremony was hosted and enjoyed by all at Lal’s. The next tournament organized by the SMGA will be the annual Christmas Scramble where one and all will start a pre-celebration of Christmas on the golf course in this exciting tournament.
