Oc­to­ber 18 - Stroke and Putt-Front Nine This saw 23 play­ers line up in per­fect weather for golf al­though the breeze strength­ened dur­ing the morn­ing. The win­ner to­day was Ross Nicols on 30 and al­low­ing the hand­i­cap­per to dock him 3.5 points. Sec­ond on a count­back with 31 was Hoss Eberl who lost 2.4 and third was Len (I never win any­thing) . Stal­lard and he man­aged to lose more points than the sec­ond place get­ter with 2.5 to the cheers of the mem­bers, a tough crowd to please. The B-grade Ap­proach on the 1st was won by Pe­ter Ma­cauley who also won the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th. The A-grade Longest Drive was won by Paul McCar­ragher, not a great feat of golf as he was the only A-grader in the field, but the rest of his score was dis­mal to say the least. The B-grade Longest Drive was won by Terry Small­man with a great shot. Adam Smith won the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 4th and also cut the Golden Cir­cle down to 2.55m. The Least Putts was won by Ed Con­nell with 11.

The meal will be served af­ter the game in the club house. Be­cause its 18 holes please keep the game flow­ing as we all need to fin­ish close to­gether. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day at 8am at Hervey Bay.
