Well done to the 64 Vets who played Stroke Golf today, again under the idea conditions of recent weeks. It is difficult to realise winter officially starts tomorrow.
At Presentation, Vice Captain Dave Harrod said, he thought those that played the usual Stableford competition also enjoyed the day.
Dave welcomed back Cliff Henderson who prefers the Club Banora winter to his New Zealand homeland alternate. Good to catch up and thanks for the smoked trout. It’s always a treat.
Round of the day went to Robert Hedger who scored 95 off the stick for a Nett 65. It was Robert’s first Vets win and his best competition round since he joined our Club at the end of 2015.
Robert started steadily then struck the ball well at Holes 6 & 7 for back to back Pars. His back nine was even stronger and included another Par at the 14th Hole. Congratulation Robert, shown below receiving his winner’s voucher from Dave.
Well done also to C Grade Runner Up, Robert Giles who was one shot further back with a Nett 66. Robert who plays off 34 Handicap was extremely consistent across the entire round which is a great credit to any player in a Stroke competition. Nice play Robert.
Robert was Runner Up on count back over Bill Ward to played great golf on 17 of the 18 Holes. Extra strokes at the 16th Hole masked Bill’s very good round. Good one Bill.
Congratulations to Rod Jackson who was the B Grade winner. Rod had 5 Pars and played 12 of the Holes in the score range 3 to 5 strokes. Good consistent round Rod, nice day out.
Rod is pictured below receiving his winner’s voucher from Dave. Vets at Presentation asked that today’s photo be confirmed as different to the one taken two weeks ago when Rod was also winner. Good one Rod.
B Grade Runner Up was a very tight competition determined on count back between Terry Schofield, Ron White and Dave Harrod, all on a handicap breaking Nett 69. Well done guys.
The Runner Up voucher went to Terry pictured below with Dave. Terry had 6 Pars and played his best golf on the important back nine. Ron and Dave can take plenty of satisfaction from their even play across their rounds.
A Grade winner was the ever consistent Joe Lehkyj with Nett 67. Joe played good golf throughout May collecting his second winner/runner up voucher today to add to his May four rundown prizes. He also produced some solid pennant play wins in May. Joe had a Birdie and 8 Pars today. Congratulations on your play Joe.
A Grade Runner Up was Wayne Howlett with a steady 5 Par round for a Nett score of 69. Good golf Wayne, well done. Wayne was in good spirit receiving his prize voucher and can be seen enjoying the today’s celebration with Ken Tilbrook (centre).
Vets are reminder that next Monday, 6 June tee times are moved forward 15 minutes to accommodate the Ladies Pennant play that follows the Vets competition.
Please anticipate that the Pro Shop will change playing group order if members arrive late.
