The team of (from left) Daphne Hall, Jan Case, Cathy Shad­dock and June Roberts look set to en­joy the spoils of win­ning the Jean and Kevin Pa­ton Am­brose Me­mo­rial ladies event at Heath­cote Golf Club on Satur­day.

THE fea­ture event at Heath­cote Golf Club on Satur­day was the Jean and Kevin Pa­ton Am­brose Me­mo­rial.

The club’s gen­er­ous spon­sors, Ben Pa­ton on be­half of the Pa­ton fam­ily, Matt Pitt of So­cial Golf Aus­tralia and Drum­monds Golf, pro­vided a range of prizes from vouch­ers, clubs and golf equip­ment to wine.

The scene was set for the team of Shane Mor­ris, John Mor­ris, Brian Davis and Matt Pitt to en­grave their names on the me­mo­rial plaque.

The big hit­ting bak­ers and co. bat­tered the course into sub­mis­sion with their 53 and 3/4 to be clear win­ners in the nett event from David Clous­ton, Ger­ard Ellis, Adrian Goudie and Mick Tobin’s 56 and a half.

David, Ger­ard, Adrian and Mick also won the best gross event with 61 from ‘Team Cap­tain’s’ (Larry Maxwell, Adrian King, Phil Coleman and Steve Ryan’s) 63 on a count­back.

The ‘morn­ing crew’ of Stephen and Dawn Hud­son and Greg and Amanda Long were best in the mixed nett with 57.

The ‘girl-power’ team com­pris­ing Cathy Shad­dock, Jan Case, June Roberts and Daphne Hall scored 70 to be the nett win­ners of the ladies event.

Wayne Glatz pounded the ball down the 11th hole to win the men’s long­est drive with Dawn Hud­son hit­ting the best ladies drive.

Two excellent shots on the 18th hole won Al­lan Jenes and Regina Driver their re­spec­tive NTPs.

Many thanks to men’s cap­tain Larry Maxwell and ladies cap­tain Dot Trott for their tire­less work in both or­gan­is­ing and man­ag­ing this very suc­cess­ful event.

Great work also by the bar­be­cue men in both their food pro­duc­tion and en­ter­tain­ment.

Ian and Wil­lie demon­strated to on­look­ers how, even after golf was fin­ished for the day, one could still set the course on fire.

Four­teen men played in both the morn­ing and af­ter­noon on an­other scorch­ing day.

Wed­nes­day Fe­bru­ary 7:

Eleven ladies com­peted in the Monthly Medal stroke and Sum­mer Cup round on a course play­ing at its fullest length in the con­di­tions.
