JU­NIORS THIS week was a stroke round for the ju­niors. The three-hole com­pe­ti­tion was again won by Ma­cie Hin­ton, fol­lowed closely by Phynne Boase. Max Corsetti is learn­ing quickly and will be a con­tender for the Monthly Medal next week. The six-hole com­pe­ti­tion was again a close call. Ryan Blinco edged out Cooper Re­hbein by one shot af­ter hand­i­caps to take victory. The nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion had a new com­peti­tor, Xavier Free­man who put in a solid round. Wes­ley Hin­ton fin­ished with 63, which was good enough to take victory. On Sun­day a small con­tin­gent of play­ers trav­elled to Bund­aberg to play in the Bund­aberg Ju­nior Open. Amara Burns was able to win the Nett for the 13 hole girls, her brother Cooper was Nett run­ner Up in the Greg Nor­man nine hole event.

SO­CIAL LAST Sun­day saw 26 mem­bers and two vis­i­tors turn out to play for our Monthly Mug Day. The win­ner for to­day and Mug for the Month was Terry Smallman who man­aged as great score of 29 which also earned him a 3.3 point re­duc­tion in his hand­i­cap. The hand­i­cap­per took the al­lowed points away as he did for Chris Fitzsi­mons on 31who man­aged sec­ond and lost 2.6 and Ed Con­nell who has earned the name Mr Ma­goo was Third, also on 31 los­ing 2.5. Hoss Eberl also man­aged 31 strokes but was spared the hand­i­cap­pers wrath on count­back. The least Putts were shared be­tween Mick Ryan, Scotty White and terry Smallman with 12 each. The Cap­tain is adding the putts up for each player and will present to the win­ner a tro­phy at the end of the year for most Putts dur­ing 2015. The A Grade near­est the Pin on the 1st was won by Dave Hills, our some­times player from Bund­aberg and great to see him back again, the B Grade Ap­proach on the 1st went to Hoss Eberl and good to see him back as well. Marg Dennett showed the men up tak­ing the A Grade Long­est Drive with Hoss Eberl once again in the prizes win­ning the B Grade Long­est Drive. Terry Smallman added to his win­nings by tak­ing out the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 4th but didn’t man­age to beat Bob Cochrane’s dis­tance of 1.17m which only has three home games to go. Col Dennett took out the Near­est the Pin on the 6th to round out the prizes. Next week we will be play­ing a Sin­gle Stable­ford over the Back Nine and don’t for­get we are play­ing at Bar­gara on March 22 and I have to know how many bug­gies will be re­quired by next week.
