CLIN­TON and Fiona Dowl­ing are again the Mixed Four­somes Cham­pi­ons for 2015, record­ing an ex­cel­lent gross score of 119 on Sun­day to win com­fort­ably from Ray Walker and He­len Ric­cia­rdi on 127, which would usu­ally be a pos­si­ble win­ning score. Nigel Radin and Kerry Sch­nack recorded the best nett score, a re­mark­able 100¾ to win from Bill Kingston and Mon­ica Mad­sen on 108¾, run­ners-up on a count­back. Michael Stan­ton and Mar­garet Den­nett (0.18m) won the ap­proach on 4 and 13 and Joan Kelly and Kev Den­ham (1.00m) on 1 and 10. A very pleas­ant day ended with a tasty va­ri­ety of snacks (thank you ev­ery­one and es­pe­cially those who pre­pared the dishes and cleaned up af­ter) and the pre­sen­ta­tion of vouch­ers to the win­ning pairs.

MEN

ON Satur­day mem­bers played a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with no player equalling par for the day.

In B Di­vi­sion Ross Ni­col with 34 points won on a count­back from Mark McAu­lay, with run­downs to Adrian Martin and Ken Al­bion.

Phil Luck­ett scored a hole-in-one on num­ber 6 for the sec­ond time, im­prov­ing his score con­sid­er­ably. Next week we play a sin­gle sta­ble­ford in a com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by Bill and Jan Kingston. As usual, we look for­ward to this spe­cial day in our cal­en­dar.

VETS

THIS Tues­day we cel­e­brated the Monthly VIP Stroke com­pe­ti­tion, spon­sored by Phil Luck­ett and Ken Al­bion with sup­port of friends, and the culi­nary tal­ents of Michael Stan­ton. In A Di­vi­sion Kev Den­ham recorded nett 69 to win from Norm Plath on 70 with Dave Robin­son third on 74. Roger Draper won B Di­vi­sion with nett 70; Len Stal­lard run­ner-up on 72 and Ken Al­bion third on 74. Three women recorded 71 nett, with Mar­garet Den­nett win­ning on count­back from Jeanette McKay, run­ner-up on count­back from Vicki Wyeth. On 1&10, Barry Steinke (0.315m) won the A Di­vi­sion ap­proach; Cyn­thia Draper (0.08,) the Women’s ap­proach. Cyn­thia (0.60m) also won the ap­proach on 6&15, while Rose Cochrane (0.28.) won the com­bined ap­proach on 4&13. Roger Draper (nett 30) led the Chook Run win­ners from Phil Pearce, Vicki Wyeth (31), Len Stal­lard (32), Vicki McAu­lay and Jeanette McKay (33) on spins. On a cold driz­zly af­ter­noon, the warm snack was very welcome, with thanks to June for fi­nal­is­ing the dishes – much ap­pre­ci­ated! Next Tues­day mem­bers play a sin­gle sta­ble­ford – hit-off at noon.

SO­CIAL

NINE­TEEN play­ers took the field on Sun­day on a cold win­ter’s morn­ing, with jack­ets be­ing the or­der of the day as the wind picked up dur­ing the game. Ed Con­nell was the win­ner on count­back from three other play­ers all on 20 and he man­aged to lose 2.5, with Rhonda Zahn los­ing 2.4 at sec­ond and Paul McCar­ragher los­ing 1.3 at third. Marie Chap­man took out the B-grade Ap­proach on the 10th, with Chris Fitzsimons tak­ing out the B-grade Long­est Drive and Scotty White once again tak­ing out the Golden Cir­cle at 3.95m. Paul McCar­ragher rounded out the prizes with the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th. A Happy Birth­day to Ken Al­bion on his 79th and still go­ing strong. Next week we will play a Stroke and Putt over the Front Nine tee­ing off at 8am, so be there at least 15 min­utes be­fore to fill out your cards to help the cap­tain. On the Au­gust 2 we will be host­ing the Light­house So­cial Club for an 18-hole com­ple­tion to round out the two-game tro­phy games we play an­nu­ally. The Light­house holds a com­mand­ing lead over the Childers club so I ex­pect ev­ery­one to play their best to wrest the tro­phy from them. Time to put on the think­ing caps about who you want on the com­mit­tee for next year as many of the ex­ist­ing com­mit­tee are not stand­ing again next year, like the pres­i­dent, the cap­tain and the trea­surer to name a few. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
