2016 Salamander Cup & Students Match

05 Jun 2016 3:38 PM | Anonymous
35th Salamander Cup, Fontainebleau  

Undeterred by threats of storms, the representatives of 8 nationalities and no less than 14 different MBA promotions assembled on the wild and wonderful course of Fontainebleau Golf Club for the 35th edition of the Salamander Cup. Their temerity was rewarded by beautifully clear skies, a gentle breeze, and a uniquely contrasted golfing experience.

The winner was once again the course, as no one returned more net Stableford points than the quantity suggested by the handicap, despite the extra ones accorded by the slope. The critical level of 36 was achieved by only one player, Caroline Edwards, with Marcus Keane, from the 2006 promotion celebrating his 10 years after came near with 35. James Andrews topped the gross scores on 20 points, closely followed by James Stewart with 19. The British presence made itself felt be wresting back the Nations’ Cup from the more numerous French, and the Promotions’ Cup going to the 2066’s pipping the 1977’s.  Rich Robinson excelled in both power and precision by  winning both the longest drive and the closest to the pin ; however, the outstanding feat of the day must go to Michael Ullmann, shooting an eagle on the tricky 5th, where impenetrable rough awaits the wayward drive, gaping bunkers the topped approach, and a cunningly curving green diverts the straightest of puts.

To cap a perfect day, the President, M. Jean-Paul Panié, and Director, M. Christian Majcher, presented the prizes, generously donated by Lanson and Channel, while lengthening shadows heightening the contrast between the shades of green as the champagne was sipped

Students’ Match, Augerville La Rivière

Rain had become a virtual certainty for Augerville on the Saturday, but as the intrepid students and anciens matches set off at 8h30, it had still not arrived. There was, as the morning progressed, a shower to make a brief appearance, but which did nothing to dampen the spirits, and the match finished in glorious sunshine. The new disposition of Augerville means that we no longer lunch on the terrace overlooking the Essone & the 18th hole, but the skewed beef is just as good, and in addition, we had a starter’s (geddit?) buffet. Countin,g the results was a nail biting affair, with first the students, then the anciens in the lead, the suspense maintained by the fact that a search party had to be sent out to  bring back the final pair. The anciens finally prevailed, maintaining their impressive lead in the series, despite the efforts of Captain Miguel Alves.

Just in case the Students had insufficient reading matter, Gilles Bouché, longstanding member at Augerville; who also strengthened the anciens team, generously brought along a collection of lavishly illustrated books as prizes.
