GOLF: Monto Golf Club held its 27-hole Four­some Cham­pi­onships on Sun­day, giv­ing many of the golfers a Fa­ther’s Day out.

For event spon­sor and fa­ther of two Ed­die An­der­son, it was also his birth­day, mak­ing it a pretty big day for him.

“Roy Mar­bach and I al­ways spon­sor this four­some event, which hap­pens to be on Fa­ther’s Day week, which also hap­pens to be my birth­day,” An­der­son said.

“It’s a big day for me, though in golf it may not be.”

An­der­son sup­plied a bot­tle of wine for the day’s win­ner, while Roy Mar­bach pro­vided some meat trays.

Four­somes are played on a stroke game, where teams of two take turns with each hit.

Though An­der­son joked that it wouldn’t be a big golf day for him, he proved right about the scores, and the win­ner of the four­some cham­pi­onships was the team made up of A-grade golfers Shane Tay­lor and Glen Evans.

It was the first time the two had played to­gether in the four­somes and they proved to be a good com­bi­na­tion.

“Glen played well, he had a good putting game so I think we com­bined our strengths,” Tay­lor said.

Tay­lor and Evans won the game with 116 strokes, up eight from the next best.

They also re­turned the best nett for the 27 and 18 holes, mak­ing them the win­ners of the tro­phies sup­plied by An­der­son and Mar­bach.

This Sun­day’s golf club event is the Ac­count­ing and You 2-Ball Am­brose, hit­ting off at noon.

The golf club re­cently re­ceived a Gam­bling Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fit Fund grant to pur­chase a new golf cart shed.

The com­mit­tee will be hold­ing a meet­ing on Tues­day to de­cide how the money would be utilised.
