Thank you to members for their strong support of the June Monthly Medal sponsored by Sharp Motors. It is a credit to the players that the field moved freely around the course with only a few short hold ups at the long Par 3s where many players were taking two shots to reach the green. The large shot gun start field completed the stroke round in about 4 and a half hours. Not unreasonable for a stroke event.
Beyond the good day on the course, members enjoyed Club Banora Golf at its best as they celebrated the new Sharp Motors sponsorship arrangements over a snack and a cold drink. Well done to the Men’s Captain, Mike Flanagan and his sub-committee for the day’s organisation and to Twin Towns’ staffers, Pam and Mary who provided their usual high stand of service to members.
It is also helpful to recognise the hours of effort put in by Mike and Sharp Motors Business Development Manager, Chris Bent in developing the Sharp Motors sponsorship. At the Presentation Chris outlined Sharp’s interest in strengthening the relationship with the Golf Club and particularly that Sharp Motors are offering members great deals on Holden, HSV, Honda, Kia and Suzuki new and used cars. Beyond the competitive vehicle price, Sharp Motors will provide the Golf Club with $150 for each member car sale. Chris said he would take special interest to ensure Golf Club members are well looked after.
Sharp Motors are the major sponsor for Men’s Monthly Medal and the Men’s Club Championship. The sponsorship includes prizes for Medal winners in three grades, Nearest The Pins and 2nd at 6th along with other novelty prizes. The NTP offer is extended to each Saturday. Thank you to Sharp Motors for increasing the quality of competition prizes. A special $250 raffle prize was provided for the June Medal Day. Nice win Dave Harrod who can be seen below receiving his prize from Chris. Dave had a great day and also won two NTPs.
The course on the day proved very challenging with only the B Grade Medal winner playing to handicap. The wet fairways restricted run and strong wind during the round contributed to the high scores.
Congratulations to A Grade Medal winner, David Von Itzstein who playing off 9 had the equal lowest gross score of the day, 79. David can be seen below receiving his winners prize from Sharp Motors representative, Chris and Men’s Club Captain, Mike.
The B Grade medal winner was Jim Leuver. Well done Jim, for the outstanding handicap matching round, clearly the best effort on the day. At presentation pictured below, Jim noted that this was his first Monthly Medal win in a long career playing golf.
Congratulations also to Bill Ward, C Grade Medal winner with a Nett 70.
Special mention and well done also to runners up, A Grade – Brian Brown, B Grade – Steve Axelby and C Grade Neil Hourigan who can be seen in order below receiving their prizes. Neil also won the Galileo Pizza for the best Secret 6 Holes competition.
The rundown went to 74 – good effort by in that group also.
It was a great day to be part of Club Banora Golf.
