MEN, WOMEN, VETS
Members enjoyed a single stableford competition sponsored by the club on Saturday. Clinton Dowling recorded a remarkable 44 points, with a round off the stick of 66 gross. This equals the course record currently held by Leigh Cronin, Chris Crouch and Clinton’s son, Blake. Clinton will regret not having one shot less. Clinton is hitting form at the right time leading into the Championships later this month. Other good scores included Peter Hutton’s 40 points to be runner-up followed by Kieth Rule on 39, third on a countback from Mark McAulay. Rundowns went to Terry Smallman (37), Michael Stanton (36) and Roger Draper (34). Clinton (2.7m) also won the A Division pinshot on 1&10, Roger (0.14m) the B Division approach. Dave Robinson (5.87m) won the A Division pinshot on 4&13, no B Division player reaching the green off the tee. Fiona Dowling won the Labour Day single stableford competition with another good score of 38 points, one more than runner-up, Peter Hrelja. Rundowns went to Kev Denham and visitor Jacob Bee-Gill. Next Saturday is Monthly Medals stroke competition for May – look forward to a strong field and tasty plates for an after game snack.
