Lemongrass Restaurant Sponsored Magic 5 /15 /20.  Two Weeks to Go!

Well the weather took its toll again with most of the week and most of Saturday not conducive to playing golf but thankfully the weather took a turn for the better on Sunday.

There are only two qualifying weeks to go before the final of the Lemongrass Restaurant sponsored Magic 5/15/20 12 hole 4-ball and many wannabe qualifiers are in a precarious position in the table and, as said above, with the weather on the up, there are bound to be a number of good scores in all three sections in the remaining two weeks.

As things stand it looks like 5 up will be good enough to qualify in the Magic 5, however, three more 6 ups would put paid to all present 5 ups. In the Magic 15, 3 up is presently the qualifying mark but just one more 4 up would see the seven 3 ups – who are presently on the mark – lose out. There is also a precarious situation in the Magic 20 section where there are 30 pairs in the qualifying zone but just three more six ups or better would knock out 13 pairs presently on 5 up. Watch this space next week!


This week some of the low handicappers and some ‘seniors’ will be kicking themselves for not returning their cards as one prize in the Magic 5 section and two prizes in the Magic 15 section went a begging when only one card was retuned in the Magic 5 and only two cards in the Magic 15 – there’s a lesson there somewhere!
