A LOVELY morn­ing greeted the play­ers this morn­ing for a sim­ple Stroke and Putt game. The course is in great con­di­tion and the greens are run­ning true thanks to all the mem­bers of the var­i­ous Clubs that utilise the course.

It was tight at the top this morn­ing with 4 play­ers all on 32 mean­ing a count­back was needed to sort out the win­ners and losers. Leigh Hart fi­nally emerged the vic­tor but suc­ceeded in los­ing 2.2.7 off his hand­i­cap. Bob Cochrane was sec­ond prov­ing that the more one prac­tices the bet­ter one plays but man­aged to lose 2.2 off his hand­i­cap and Mick Ryan was third los­ing 1.7 off his hand­i­cap. The un­lucky loser was Tony Parker who in re­al­ity ended up the win­ner as he didn’t lose any points off his hand­i­cap, a bit­ter sweet loss.

The Men’s Long­est Drive was won by Michael Stan­ton who didn’t quite man­age to reach the mark­ers but was well within the lim­its. The B Grade Long­est Drive was won by Tony Parker with a 251m drive on the third out­strip­ping the op­po­si­tion by miles. The B Grade Ap­proach was won by Mick Ryan who pipped the holder of the prize by 1.5cm.

The Golden Cir­cle was once again safe as no­body landed on the 4th in one shot. Hope­fully next time, which will be Pere­gian Springs the prize will go off. Dave Durie won the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th and Col Den­nett won the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 7th.

The least Putts were shared be­tween Ed Con­nell and Leigh Hart with 12 each.

Next week we play at Biggen­den which will be 18 holes 2 per­son Am­brose. This is the sec­ond game of the tro­phy se­ries and Biggen­den are one up on us in our quest to wrest the tro­phy back off them. Tee off time is 0800hrs.

Mem­bers are re­minded to carry a sand bucket with them whilst play­ing and to fill any div­ots that they make. While you are at it if you see and div­ots that haven't been filled in please fill those in as well and re­pair any pitch marks on the Greens.
