Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - DISTRICT GOLF -

Spring ar­rived this week and so did the sun­shine as the tem­per­a­ture gauge got up to the 20 de­gree mark for the first time in many months.

Satur­day was a shot gun start with the fi­nals of the footy golf event be­ing played, fol­lowed by a lovely roast lunch with ev­ery­one fin­ish­ing around the same time.

A field of 76 at­tended for a game of sin­gle stable­ford with Bob Gough hav­ing a real day out with a win­ning score of 42 points play­ing off his hand­i­cap of 17 to take out the B grade event some six points to the bet­ter of Peter Fe­dorenko in sec­ond place.

Ke­van McMil­lan played right to his hand­i­cap of 10 to win the A grade event with a score of 36 points, two points clear of Gus McKil­lop and Grant McLure whoe shared the run­ners up prize.

Mark Cousin won the C grade event with a score of 40 points on a count back from Mal­colm Hirt.

Craig Cousin had the two near­est the pins on the 14th and 16th holes and to make it a real fam­ily af­fair, fa­ther Bar­rie Cousin scored a down the line with a score of 34 points, which was ex­actly the score re­quired for all down the lines.

Con­di­tions proved to be quite tough and a real test on Satur­day with just the seven golfers or 11 per cent of the field play­ing to their hand­i­cap or bet­ter.

A field of some 37 play­ers lined up for Thurs­day’s com­pe­ti­tion which was played in fine and dry con­di­tions.

Rick Fal­cone had a nice day out by tak­ing out vic­tory for the A grade event with a score of 39 points play­ing off his hand­i­cap of 14, just the two points clear of Peter Scott
