Saturday’s Stableford competition attracted a large 90s plus field on a day where the Club remembered our Vietnam Veterans. Thanks to the Pro Shop for ensuring all interested members gain a tee time and also to members for removing their name from the timesheet when the cannot play. There are currently some issues with deleting from the competition on-line and these issues are being worked through with our computer system supplier.
With some notable exceptions, the scoring was generally low 3 Putt Club members with 30 Points received more Two Bobs than they paid out.
The Division 1 Rundown went to 34 Points and Division 2 to 35 Points although not all in.
Thank you to our Vietnam Veterans for their sponsorship of the special Vets competition and for a celebration drink with members.
The Vets competition was won by the hard work Club Veterans Sub Committee member, Dave Harrod with a good score of 38 Points. Dave was very strong on the outward nine scoring a 4 Pointer and four 3 Pointers for a total of 23 Points. This start set Dave for his Vets Competition win and also Runner Up in Division 2. Terrific day Dave, well done. Below Dave (right) is in good spirits after receiving the perpetual trophy from Men’s Captain, Mike Flanagan (left).
The best score of the day was returned by one of the Club’s gentlemen-by-nature, Les Isbell (right below). Captain, Mike (left below) noted that Les’ win in Division 2 was a very popular one and at Presentation Les said it was good to be a winner again after a three-year drought where some other matters had dominated over golf. Les started slowly and missed on the 1st Hole but immediately bounced back stringing together the next 5 holes for 15 Points including a 4 Pointer at the 4th Hole. Les collected 19 Points for the first nine and then produced and even stronger back nine of 23 Points which included another string of 3 Pointers – four at Holes 12 through 15 and a 3 Pointer at the 18th Hole. Congratulations Les, on your good round and win.
The biggest prize tally of the day went to Division 1 winner, Michael McKay who playing off 15 Handicap, had a Birdie at the 4th Hole and three Pars on each nine for 41 Points. The cream on the prize cake was Michael’s swing at the 3rd Hole which provided NTP and the coveted ProPin of $90. Terrific day Michael well done.
Division 1 Runner Up was playing partner Mike (Macca) McGuiness who scored 38 Points. Macca scored on every hole and started and ended his round with a 3 Pointer. The consistency of the round was reflected in the 19 Points each side of the card. Congratulations of taking home a voucher.
By the way the group also included Men’s Captain, Mike who had a solid 37 Points.
Noticed that none of the Division 2 players hit the 2nd Hole green. It was tuff into the strong breeze.
