There was as much hype around the club on Saturday after Terry Donnison’s hole-in-one on the fourth as the four4th Cox Plate win for Winx.
Terry with his great individual effort was made even better later in the day, as it gave him and his partners Greame Geisler and Duart Perrin a win by less than a shot.
The club congratulated Grant Clark and his team of volunteers as they put together a n enjoyable Ambrose event with a field of 114 players.
The club thanked all event sponsors who helped make it a success.
Fine weather and great course conditions early in the week certainly made for some great scores.
Monday’s event saw Neville Howe take it out with 39 points.
On Tuesday Christine Caig’s 43 points had her six points clear of the field. Thursday had three scores of 40 plus. Kevan McMillan 41 (A grade), Tom Papley 42 (B grade) and Ken Sumsion 40 (C grade) were clear winners of their grades.
Sunday was no exception as Tony Hockley won with 41 points.
The club championships start on Saturday November 17 and the tee time sheets are now up in the clubhouse. Phone the club and put your name down to play.
