Wednesday 6 April, Stroke and M. McGrann “Bag-day” qualifier
And who should qualify this month; none other than “early-bird” John Haynes! John, and his regular playing partners, are always the first group to tee off at around 7.30 now that daylight-saving has finished. Those early starts clearly agree with John, as his winning score of a Nett 66 had the rest of the field covered. Well done John, see you at the playoff in 6 months’ time! The daily runner-up was perennial placegetter, Paul Kennedy. P.K. is one of our most consistent scorers, as his Nett 67 demonstrates. Another fine effort cobber! Balls extended to 71, ( Hallelujah!) And, this week, our NTP’s went to P.K. (3rd to cap off a very successful day for Mr. Consistent!) Mario De Vincentis won the 5th, Steuart Hawke the 9th and Ian “Junior” Garside nearly had an “ace” on the 12th!
Saturday 9 April:
The Club held a long-overdue Working Bee on the course on Saturday and it was well attended by over 20 members! ( And, boy, did they get a lot done, well done to all attendees!)
A “full” 18-hole Stableford competition was then held followed by a pleasant BBQ lunch. The competition results were as follows: Our daily winner was Jason Kennedy. Kenno is still relatively young and fit, so his 35 points had the field covered, ( although in the end, it was the best score within a 4-way countback). The runner-up, also in a countback battle, was declared as Roger Mataele, with 35 points, of course! Balls got to 33. There were no NTP’s held !
The Match Committee, especially Captain “Happy”, did a great job organising the “eager-beavers”. Well done to all involved, we’ll have to do it all over again, maybe in 6 months!!
