The VVV’s:

Well, dear readers, that woman has done it again. Annelies Duivenvoorden has taken home the top prize, with an impressive return of 21 points. This smashed the larger field this week because Suzanne Barratt grabbed the runner-up voucher returning 15 points. There was no ball rundown, nor any NTP winners.

Wednesday 27 march, Par:

The comp called Par affects golfers in different ways. Some of us, especially the low handicappers, find it the most challenging of the regular comps that we play. On the other hand, the longer handicappers often revel in it. This week, it was the turn of low handicapper Dale Horrobin to have a day out. Dale’s collect for his +2 result is the A-Grade voucher plus the NTP on the 5th hole. The runner-up in this grade was Ken White, grabbing that prize with a -2. In B-Grade Daryl Ward came home with a +2 and the Easter chokkies. A popular win indeed. The B-Grade runner-up was Ross Machar, also with a +2, meaning he misses out through a tight countback. Balls in both Grades reached -1 only. The other NTP winners were as follows: Noel Cross (3rd), Andy Lockey (9th), Ken Barratt (12th) and Mario De Vincentis (15th).


Well, dear readers, it’s now been decided. The final Top ten are as follows, in order of points scored; Paul Osbourne finished on top; followed by Andrew Gill, Pacey Luttgens, Geoff Fall, Clint Toohey, Peter Fox, Sam Dennis, Jack Sheehan, Shane Campbell and Peter Whitehead. Congratulations from all at W.G.C. and good luck next week, at the iconic Shootout. All members are invited to come along, walk the nine holes with the qualifiers and support your favourite player.

On the final Home and Away event, the winner was Michael Pinkster, taking home the top prize with 20 points on a countback. The unlucky runner-up was David Hatt whose 20-point result was not quite good enough to beat ‘the Pinkster’. Balls reached 17. The four NTP winners were James Campion (1st), Shane Campbell (3rd), Dale Horrobin (5th) and Pat O’Regan (9th).
