ON SATURDAY members played a fourball stroke competition for the qualifying round of the pairs’ Match Play championship.
The pairing of Clinton Dowling and Ivan Philpott did not surprise when they came in with a net score of 61 to claim first place in the qualifying round, winning on a countback from Mick Martens and Cec Martin visitors from Bundaberg.
Nigel Radin and Bob Werne on 62 and Keith Rule and Larry Pershouse on 63 (C/B) won rundowns.
Will Martell won the A Division pinshot on 1&10 and Peter Hutton the B Division approach. Clinton Dowling won the A Division pinshot on 4&13, a mere 1.3metres from the hole – no B Division player finished on the green.
Next Saturday members play a single stableford competition for club trophies – a voucher system to be re-introduced in the near future for prizes, with a view to supporting those who sponsor days during the year. See you there for the 12.30 hit-off.
