AFTER the damp I suspect no-one thought we would get a game in without getting our feet wet but the morning surprised us with sunshine.
If the cold wind had abated then the morning would have been perfect. It was a case of wait for the wind to die down and then hit the ball to lessen the effect of the wind.
The winner was Dave Hills on a countback from Marg Dennett both on 32 with Dave losing 2.7 and Marg 2.2 off their handicaps. Ed Connell came in third with 34 and lost 1 off his handicap.
The fewest putts at 12 was won by Rose Cochrane and, keeping it in the family, Bob Cochrane took out the B-grade approach on the 1st.
Paul McCarragher took out the A-grade men’s longest drive somewhat sheepishly as his ball only travelled about 100m before hitting a tree and then dribbling into the middle of the fairway for the prize.
Len Stallard took out the B-grade longest drive with Dave Durie taking out the combined pin shot on the 13th, as well as the golden circle at 1.43m. Dave Hills rounded out the prizes with the men’s approach on the 15th.
The golden circle prize will be awarded on September 7 so there is still two weeks to get inside the 1.44m mark to claim the prize.
Next week we will be playing a single stableford over the back nine just for a change of pace.
Don’t forget the pink ball competition on September 28.
Pick a three-person team to play and put your names on the form on the notice board. All proceeds to the Prostate Cancer Fund.
Have a great week and see you next Sunday for the last week of 8am starts.
