THE Friendlies Pharmacy sponsored the single stableford competition held last Saturday, with the weather inviting and set for ideal golfing conditions – for some! In A division Damien Dowling produced a par round to record 38 points, one clear of runner-up Kev Savage. Kev did manage an eagle on number 15 to win the first eagle badge. In B Division Ivan Philpott edged out Len Stallard with 39 points, fine scoring indeed! The A Division pinshot winners were Nigel Radin and Clinton Dowling on 4 and 13, while Curtis Fredriksen was nearest the pin in B Division with his approach on 1 and 10. The generous vouchers and thoughtful gift packs from our sponsors for the day were greatly appreciated. This Saturday Craig Swift is sponsoring the single stableford competition with his usual array of appropriate prizes. Match play competitors are again urged to organise a time and place to play.
VICKI Wyeth again won the single stableford competition with 34 points from Coralie Volgyesi on 32 points with rundowns to Joan Wright and Vicki McAulay.

Helen Ricciardi won the approach. Women members also wish to express their appreciation of the generous gift vouchers and gift packs from the day’s sponsors. This Saturday we play a single stableford competition sponsored by Craig Swift, another generous sponsor.
STRONG numbers continue to attend the Tuesday competitions– this one being the monthly stroke VIP competition sponsored by Ken and Phil in conjunction with Round 5 of the competition for the Jan Mungomery Salver.

Approach winners were: Marc Harper in A Division, Mick Ryan in B Division (both in the hole) and Cynthia Draper 0.38m from the hole. Chook Run winners were led by Ray Burrowes and Neil Rieck (29!), followed by Phil Luckett and Gary Carlon (31), Rose Cochrane and Mark McAulay (33) and Cynthia Draper (34) on a spin. Next week we return to the Vets’ favourite, the single stableford competition.
A BRIGHT sunny morning saw 12 members from the Fraser Lakes Social Golf Club turn up for the second round of the trophy competition. Childers had to win by more than 5% to take the prize and luckily a home town advantage paid off with Childers getting 93.15% and Fraser Lakes with 102.24%. It was a close run thing with their player Scott Ridgeway taking out the Lowest Gross score with 77 strokes. Way above out closest at 81 but our players stuck to the task and managed the win. The winner of the Childers Nett competition was Sue Long with 61 nett and losing 4.0 off her handicap, second was Ken Albion with 63 and losing 2.2 and third on a count back was Col Dennett with 69 and losing 0.7. The least putts was won by Peter Macauley with 25, the A Grade Nearest the Pin on the 1st/10th by Scotty Ridgeway (Fraser Lakes), the B Grade Approach on the 1st/10th by Ken Albion, the A Grade Longest Drive by Terry Smallman, the B Grade Longest Drive by Gary Cahill (Fraser Lakes).

Next week a break from 18 hole Golf with a simple Stroke and putt over the Front Nine teeing off at 8am and the week after that on September 28 the Pink Ball Day for Prostate Cancer with many businesses in Childers donating prizes for the players. All Social Club Members are invited to play as are the Isis Golf Club Members and the Isis Veterans Golf club members as all have been impacted by Cancer in oneway or another and it’s up to us to help to find a cure. Teams of three to play with a meal for $15 a head, if you can’t play a donation would be appreciated, as all proceeds to the Prostate Cancer Council of Australia.
