SUN­DAY saw 27 play­ers take the field for an 18 hole event Spon­sored by Club Car with teams hit­ting off in a shot­gun start.

The weather turned de­cid­edly very windy and made for some in­ter­est­ing shots as it took con­trol of the ball on more than one oc­ca­sion.

The win­ners for the day on count­back were Ed Con­nell and Paul McCar­ragher on 64.25 points win­ning on a count­back from Marg and Col Den­nett also on 64.25 points for sec­ond place. Third place went to two of our vis­i­tors for the day Dot and John Moore with 65.75 points.

Col had quite a day as he also took out the 1st/10th A-grade Near­est the Pin, The Com­bined 6th Near­est the Pin and the 7th/16th Com­bined Ap­proach.

Other win­ners for the day were Ray Bur­rows with the B-grade Ap­proach on the 1st/10th, Paul McCar­ragher the A-grade Long­est Drive, Bill Long the B-grade Long­est Drive, Ken Al­bion the 4th/13th Com­bined near­est the pin and also a new mea­sure­ment to beat for the Golden Cir­cle of 2.7m.

Dot Moore took out the Ladies 15th Near­est the Pin and Mick Hickey rounded out the win­ners with the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th.

The bar­be­cue after that game was most wel­come and thanks to Mick and Roz for pro­vid­ing the cook­ing and cut­ting up of the good­ies for that, thanks to Bill Long as rep­re­sen­ta­tive for Club Car for the prizes handed out and for his gen­er­ous of­fer of the spon­sor­ship of our Christ­mas game at Her­vey Bay Golf Club.

We have also been of­fered the use of a 21 seat bus for a nom­i­nal fee for that very same Christ­mas do so those wish­ing to take ad­van­tage please make it know to my­self at the next game.

The more we get the cheaper it will be per per­son.

There is a list with the Trea­surer, Bill Kirch­hof, for those wish­ing to at­tend and also those wish­ing to use the bus.

Next week was sup­posed to be Cap­tains Day but it will be post­poned for a cou­ple of weeks and next week we will play a Stroke and Putt game over the Front Nine tee­ing off at 7.30am.
