Wednesday 29 November, Stableford:

There was no golf on Wednesday due to inclement weather conditions.


With kinder weather prevailing, scores also indicated that as can be seen from the daily winner. Posting a very healthy 25 points, Jack Sheehan claimed the top prize, which does his Top 10 chances no harm in the run to the holiday break. Jack won by a massive 5 shots because claiming the runner-up voucher was Mr Reliable, Peter Fox, posting a solid 20 points. With those sorts of leading scores, balls only made it to 18. The 3 NTP winners were Danny Fox (10th; 2nd shot), Simon Spenceley (12th) and Jason Kennedy (15th).

Saturday 2 December, Stroke, Monthly Medal and Medal of Medallists play-off:

This competition day proved what an intrepid lot golfers are.

In constant rain, all morning, ( although admittedly not heavy soaking precipitation), 35 club members gritted their teeth, put on their protective gear, attached their umbrellas and faced the inclement conditions to battle the very damp course. Of course. 10 of those intrepid travellers had no choice, they were vying to be the 2023 Medal of Medallist winner; a much-wanted Board event title. And, the winner of that, for this current year, was Jack Sheehan, a reasonably new member to the Club. Jack’s Nett 67 was good enough to beat all the other yearly Medallists, by a clear margin so congratulations Jack. That Nett 67 was also good enough for him to snare the runner-up daily prize too. A good but wet day’s work for Jack. This month’s Medal winner was none other than Daddy Gill with a superb Nett 65. It was superb because Jeff’s score in those conditions was outstanding ( Take note, Andy definitely bragging rights to father for the next month, at least).

Due to the smaller-than-usual medal field, there were no A and B-Grades, which means that balls for the field extended to 76, an indication of how tough the conditions were. There were only 2 NTP winners on this day, because Merilyn McDonald snared the one on the 3rd and Shane ‘Bomber’ Campbell took home two for the 9th and the 12th.
