Stan­thorpe Golf

RAINY day for the show week­end cleared out for the monthly medal stroke event last Satur­day to pro­ceed. Al­though the field was down from other weeks, still enough for a close com­pe­ti­tion.

Two play­ers re­turned the best score for the day, a nett 70, with the count­back giv­ing the win to ju­nior golfer, Billy Webb, with Matt Water­worth set­tling for run­ner-up.

Billy's two nines were even, scor­ing 43 on each, but a costly dou­ble bo­gey from Matt gave the win to Billy by half a shot.

An­nelle Bat­ter­ham must be break­ing in her new clubs win­ning the ladies' event with nett 77 with Kay Webb com­ing in sec­ond place with nett 80. Ap­pre­ci­a­tion to our spon­sor on the day, Dixon Homes’, Wes Smith.

Gross win­ners were Matt Water­worth with 75 and the ladies shared the balls with both An­nelle and Nikki Water­worth re­turn­ing 105 for the round.

Matt Water­worth also fea­tured in the put­ting event along with the spon­sor, Wes Smith, need­ing 27 putts for the round. Linda Kelly had least putts for the ladies need­ing 28 for the day.

Richard Rear­don held the pin at 3 and Kev Rowl­ing col­lected 17.

Ladies win­ner, An­nelle had best ap­proach for the ladies at 17 and all other pin shots re­mained un­claimed, as did the birdies nest at 15.

Bill Pyne held the pro-pin at 1/10, Matt Water­worth at 9/18 and Wes Smith at 5/14.

In the run-down, a ball each to Greg Fraser, Wes Smith, Aaron Sim­mers, Alan Kerr and Nikki Water­worth.

He­len Jones re­ceived a ball that Keith re­trieved from a rab­bit hole, not a rab­bit out of a hat.

Good to see that play­ers were in at­ten­dance in am­ple time for their tee off spot which made the start­ing of the com­pe­ti­tion go very smoothly. Next Satur­day is a sin­gle stroke event sponsored by Si­mon Shan­non. Tee off from 11.30am and the time sheet is on the board.

MIS­ER­ABLE con­di­tions couldn’t dampen spir­its at parkrun last Satur­day. 52 parkrun­ners par­tic­i­pated in the 5km run on show week­end. We had heaps of first timers join us for a run or walk and three keen run­ners set new PBs. Well done, Alex Archibald-Binge, Natasha Hunt and Leanne Haynes.

A big thank you to our vol­un­teers, Glen Brunck­horst, Ur­sula Gard­ner, Sav Gi­ammat­tei and the Roberts fam­ily. The weather fore­cast for Satur­day is look­ing good - mostly sunny and 30 de­grees. See you all there.
