AN EARLY morn­ing start saw 17 play­ers tee off for this month’s Mug Day com­pe­ti­tion over the Front Nine for a Stroke and Putt game.

Con­di­tions were fine, with lit­tle wind and sunny skies, and the scores il­lus­trated just how good it was.

The win­ner for the day after a count­back was Bill Kirch­hof on 31 strokes but los­ing 3.1 of his hand­i­cap, sec­ond was Ray Bur­rows, also with 31 strokes and los­ing 2.6 for his ef­fort, with Chris Fitzsimons tak­ing out third place with 32 strokes and los­ing a pal­try 1.7. Chris also man­aged to win the least putts with 12 and the B grade Ap­proach on the 1st.

The B grade long­est drive was won by Ed Con­nell and the 6th near­est the pin by Col Den­nett.

The A graders didn’t have quite such a good time of it as they didn’t record one win in their grade.

Thanks to those who laboured in the kitchen after the game to serve up a great lunch and to those who helped clean up and empty the bins, much ap­pre­ci­ated by all con­cerned.

Next week we will play the back nine and the game will be a sin­gle sta­ble­ford, tee­ing off at 7.30am.

Also next week I will have the list for those wish­ing to play in the CLUB CAR Car­ni­val on Oc­to­ber 19. Please put your names on the list as soon as pos­si­ble as the com­mit­tee has to have the num­bers early. Cost per head for the day $25.

There will also be a list for the Christ­mas game and lunch at Her­vey Bay Golf Course on De­cem­ber 14. This will con­sist of 18 holes of golf, a shared buggy and a com­plete Christ­mas din­ner with dessert. The cost per head is $22.50. Vis­i­tors who wish to at­tend the meal will also be charged $22.50 per head.
