MAX Hunter had a field day last Saturday when a good field set out to contest a single stableford.
As Max was the sponsor for the day, he rose to the occasion by returning the best score of the day, 43 points, as well as collecting the balls for the pin shot at 17 and the pro-pin at 1/10.
With three players returning a score of 42 points, the countback gave first runner-up to Keith Jones and second runner-up to Kev Rowling. Keith Allen settled for a ball in the run down with his 42 points.
Other pin shots were won by Aaron Simmers at 3 (with a birdie on the card) and Matt Waterworth at 12. Matt also held the pro-pin at 5/14.
Luke Reardon rarely misses out on taking balls away, collecting the pro-pin at 9/18 and the birdies nest at 2.
Ian Pickering had a good day on the course with a score of 41 to feature in the run down.
The ladies event was a tie on 37 points, the count-back giving the nod to Nikki Waterworth with Neta Thouard taking runner up prize.
Rachel Hendry didn’t have one of her best rounds on the day but managed to win the ladies’ pin at 3.
No takers for the pin at 12 but the ladies’ approach at 17 went to the ladies winner, Nikki. There is only one more round to complete the Golfer of the Year event, that being the monthly medal in a fortnight’s time.
Leading scores in this year long competition are quite close and the final positions can be influenced by how well some members play in this last single competition.
Winners for both men’s and ladies’ sections will be announced at the Club Christmas party and awards night, Saturday, November 25, after play on the day.
Sheet on the notice board for names if attending for catering purposes.
A number of our senior players (veterans) are playing in the Darling Downs vets’ mixed foursomes championships at City Golf Club next Monday. Good luck to all attending and some good news at the finish. Next Saturday is the Pierce Trophy, a mixed 4BBB stableford, sponsored by the Peirce family.
Hoping for as many mixed teams as can be.
For those not paired in the mixed event, a 4BBB stableford will be played.
Time sheet for the event is on the board with tee-off from 11.30am.
LITTLE PLAYERS, BIG HITTERS: Junior cricket was played on Saturday with a heap of Granite Belt kids in attendance.
