MEN

MEM­BERS en­joyed a pleas­ant af­ter­noon for the first Monthly Medal of the year.

The scores in A Di­vi­sion were very im­pres­sive, with Michael Stan­ton win­ning with net 66 from Keith Rule on a count­back. Run­downs went to Peter Russo (68), Ivan Philpott (70) and Nigel Radin (71).

Larry Per­shouse won B Di­vi­sion with net 70 from John Hin­ton on 72, sec­ond on a count­back from Ken Al­bion with Peter Hut­ton also col­lect­ing a run­down.

Ivan also won the ap­proach on 1 and 10, with Michael Stan­ton win­ning the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot on 4 and 13.

This Satur­day we play a four-ball stroke com­pe­ti­tion for the qual­i­fy­ing round of the pairs’ Match Play cham­pi­onship. We hope all mem­bers can find a part­ner for this im­por­tant event. WOMEN SO­PHIE Martell with 72 net won the women’s first Satur­day Monthly Goblet from Robyn Robin­son on 74, with Joan Wright win­ning the run­down.

Robyn won the ap­proach on 4 and 13 and So­phie on 6 and 15.

On Thurs­day Diane Rowley won the best nine stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 26 points from Co­ralie Vol­gyesi on 20 points, sec­ond on a spin from Vicki Wyeth and Lisa Cooney, with Vicki win­ning a run­down.

This Thurs­day we play our first Thurs­day Monthly Goblet, with Thurs­day hit-off times for Fe­bru­ary at 8am.

On Satur­day, we will play a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion while the men play the qual­i­fy­ing round for their pairs’ match play cham­pi­onship. VETS THE four-ball best ball stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion tested the cap­tain’s pa­tience as he en­deav­oured to en­sure ev­ery mem­ber had a play­ing part­ner for the af­ter­noon’s round.

New pair­ings shared most of the tro­phies but vet­eran pair, Phil Luck­ett and Ken Al­bion, won the ma­jor prize with a score of 46.

Vince Kennedy and Leigh Hart were run­ners-up on 44 on a count­back from Cyn­thia Draper and Val Plath, 2nd run­ners-up on a count­back from Char­lie Livick and Bob Champ­ney, with Neil Rieck and Keith Rule on 43 win­ning the last run­down.

Barry Steinke won the men’s ap­proach on 1 and 10, Robyn Robin­son the women’s ap­proach on 6 and 15, and Cyn­thia Draper win­ning the Michael Stan­ton ap­proach on 4 and 13, her sec­ond shot in the hole.

Chook Run win­ners were: Vince Kennedy (29 net), Val Plath (32), Phil Luck­ett, Nigel Radin, Bob Champ­ney and Rae McCliskie (all on 33).

Next week is the monthly V.I.P. Stroke spon­sored by Rusty Us­mar – we’re as­sured of a great af­ter­noon. CHILDERS SO­CIAL LAST Sun­day saw 22 play­ers turn out for a Stroke and Putt game. The weather was kind, not too hot and the wind just about right.

The win­ner was Ed (I can’t see the ball) Con­nell with 33 strokes and los­ing 2.5 off his hand­i­cap. The sec­ond and third places were con­tested be­tween four play­ers, Len (I never win any­thing) Stal­lard, Paul McCar­ragher, Ray Bur­rows and Bob Champ­ney all play­ing to par with 35 apiece. Luck­ily Col Dennett was able to make sense out of it and the sec­ond place went to Len who lost 1.0 and Paul who lost 0.5 was third.

The least Putts was won by Marie Chap­man although there was some con­ster­na­tion be­fore the count as some­one, who shall re­main name­less, eh Mac, had put their con­sid­er­ably lower hand­i­cap in the Putts col­umn on the board. Once rec­ti­fied Marie was a clear win­ner with 12 putts and all was right with the world again. The B Grade Ap­proach was won once again by Ray Bur­rows, the B Grade Long­est drive by Adam Smith and it was a mon­ster, the A Grade Long­est Drive by Col Dennett and fi­nally the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th was won by Bill Kirch­hof.

Still no word from the emails sent to var­i­ous venues as re­quested but as soon as we get them we will let the mem­bers know. Next week we will play a Sin­gle Stable­ford over the Front Nine.

Have a great week and see you Sun­day.
