PAST men’s cap­tain and long-stand­ing mem­ber Harold Bris­lin and ladies cham­pion Pam Davey hit the first shots to of­fi­cially open the 2018 golf sea­son on March 24.

The course was pre­sented in pris­tine con­di­tion and with the weather gods smil­ing down a great day was had by all mem­bers who at­tended.

Char­lie Baggetta turned back the clock to score an im­pres­sive 43 points to beat Michael Lowe who scored 38 points. Baggetta who showed signs of re­turn­ing to form at scroungers with 36 points, played con­sis­tent golf to score 21 and 22 points on each 9. Ming Yap was third with 36 points to count out Garry Beacham, Jerome Oliver, John Pow­ell, Jeff Gale and Carl Carulli, who all scored 36 points.

Ladies cap­tain Ju­dith Doyle pro­duced the best ladies score with 35 points to beat Lyn Joyce and Robyn Peet on a count­back.

In scroungers on March 28, spon­sored by Steve Doyle, Cec Hol­man con­tin­ued his good form to come out on top with 39 points to beat Jerome Oliver on a count­back. Hol­man’s win­ning score was set up by a strong sec­ond nine where he scored 21 points. This is the third event in a row where he has played bet­ter than his hand­i­cap.

On April 7, an ex­cel­lent field of 64 starters in­clud­ing 10 vis­i­tors from City Beach Golf Club, showed up to test their golf­ing skills in the Ken and An­drew Lo­max stable­ford. Ste­wart Jones con­tin­ued his resur­gence of good form to be the run­away win­ner with 40 points. Jones’ im­proved form has come about with a much im­proved show­ing around the greens es­pe­cially with his chip­ping. Lynda Oven­den had the best score for the ladies with 37 points.

Frank Mazza showed he likes this time of the year as he turned back the clock to pro­duce a great score of 43 points. Mazza’s last win was in March 2017 at vet­er­ans In Bus­sel­ton. Brian Hay was the un­lucky golfer to run sec­ond with 41 points with the con­sis­tent Derek Williams count­ing out Pe­ter Shine for third with 39 points. Mazza’s win was well de­served and showed that per­se­ver­ance of this game pays off.
