The V.V.V’s:

Eight ladies played this week in a fantastic turnout though unfortunately, a couple who were super keen played 18 holes, so therefore, their results were not included in the final list. But, on this day, we have a new name to celebrate as Maureen Hyndman was this week’s prize winner. 14 points was just good enough for Maureen to get over the line, as she pipped Suzanne Barratt after a tight countback. Well done indeed to both girls and Noel, take note as bragging rights go to Maws this week. Great effort ladies and great to see the starting numbers growing as the weeks roll by.

Wednesday 29 May, Stableford:

I’m always eager to see what result is required to take home the chokkies, especially in Stableford comp. This week, plenty of points needed to be posted, because regular winner, Deb Hamment, accumulated 38 of them to be our top winner this week. No countback was required here because Deb’s result was enough to edge out the runner-up Barry Maltman with his solid 37 points. Barry’s recent scores have been consistently in the mid-30s, so this result was no surprise. The ball rundown stretched to 34. NTP take-home winners were as follows: Aaron Henderson, (3rd), current Club Champion, Clint Toohey, (5th), Your Loyal Scribe, (9th), Peter Bell, (12th) and Ken White who’s up to his old tricks again, for a win on his favourite 15th.

Saturday 1 June, Stroke and Monthly Medal:

A first-up medal win this month to none other than Jason Kennedy, who slayed them by posting a very impressive Nett 67. Kenno’s score was good enough for him to take home both the Medal and the A-Grade voucher. Paul Osbourne was the runner-up in this Grade, and balls reached down to 69 only. Barry Maltman is the B-Grade winner, with a classy Nett 69 posted. The B-Grade runner-up was Angus Hall, shooting a Nett 70. In this Grade, the ball rundown reached 73. Ben ‘Panda’ Lever had a good day out collecting an NTP on both the 3rd and the 5th. On the 9th, it went to Chris ‘Fuzzy’ Fall, whilst Matt Maloney hit a great tee shot on the tricky 12th. Finally, immediate past Club Champion Michael Batten collected an NTP on the 15th.
