Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


SATUR­DAY’S monthly Metropole Ho­tel sta­ble­ford event saw only 28 play­ers turn out with most of the A grade play­ers away at Townsville’s Rowes Bay for the dis­trict pen­nants.

The team fin­ished run­ner­sup to the very strong Townsville team.

Mean­while in Proser­pine it was Gary Scot­ford burn­ing up the course to take out the lo­cal event with a fine 39 points, one ahead of run­nerup Kevin Duffy.

The run­down com­prised Paul Len­non and Trevor Paroz on 37, John Roser with 36 points, and Ken Muller, Paul Douth­waite, Neil Cawthorne and Dave Gates all with 35.

Near­est-the-pins went to John Dodds on hole 2, Gary Scot­ford on 9, Brad Ham­mond on 13 and for the sec­ond week run­ning Dave Thomas on 16.

The ladies event was taken out by Paula Wron­ski on 28 points.

The two-shot club didn’t go off and will jackpot to next week.

Peter Fox dom­i­nated the Thurs­day sta­ble­ford event to take out the 18-hole win with a great score of 41 points, one ahead of run­ner-up Michael Cragg on 40.

The 18-hole run­down com­prised Vic Feld­man with 38, John Grosskreutz and Kelvin Stephens on 37, with Aaron Rob­son, Stu­art Win and Bill Woods all card­ing 36.

In the 9-hole sec­tion it was Tom Flem­ing’s day with a score of 20 points, one ahead of run­ner-up Stu­art Win who won on a count back from Vic Feld­man and Mick Ka­vanagh, all on 19.

In the run­down were Kelvin Stephens, Bill Woods, Mal Carter and Aaron Rob­son all card­ing 18 and win­ning on count back from two oth­ers.

This Satur­day will see the an­nual Ugly Duck­lings Day which is a great day of fun golf for both mem­bers and so­cial play­ers alike.

A num­ber of prizes from a large pool of spon­sors will be on of­fer and this very pop­u­lar event will tee off at 11.30am with a shot­gun start.

Reg­is­tra­tions will be ac­cepted from 11am and play­ers are en­cour­aged to get their four­somes to­gether for a great day on the links.

Thurs­day play­ers will be com­pet­ing over nine and 18holes in a stroke event, with tee times to suit in­di­vid­ual play­ers.

Reg­is­tra­tions are now avail­able for the an­nual Proser­pine opens for men, mixed and ladies, which will take place in early Au­gust, start­ing with the Proser­pine ladies open on Fri­day, Au­gust 2, the mixed open on Satur­day, Au­gust 3 and the pre­mier event of the year, the men’s open on Sun­day, Au­gust 4.

Cater­ing will be avail­able for lunch and break­fast where ap­pro­pri­ate on each day.


Ladies’ golf was can­celled last Wed­nes­day due to wet weather how­ever a fan­tas­tic roll up of ladies en­abled the bulk of the or­gan­i­sa­tion to be done prior to the Proser­pine Ladies Open on Fri­day, Au­gust 2.

On Fri­day, July 5, nine ladies trav­elled to Collinsville to com­pete in their open.

Fan­tas­tic re­sults were achieved with five tro­phies be­ing won by the trav­el­ling group. Lyn Muller was the A grade nett run­ner up, Guus Her­mans won the C grade gross, Tessa Aitken was the C grade gross run­ner up, Tina Baden­horst won the C grade nett and Caro­line Awdry won the over­all vis­i­tors nett.

The club con­grat­u­lated all the win­ners and ev­ery­one par­tic­i­pated, as they con­tinue to sup­port other clubs in the re­gion.

With pen­nants and the open ap­proach­ing the ladies will try and play a cou­ple of stroke events over the next two weeks.

Mar­lene Gray and Ali­son Day will also have their tro­phy days in the com­ing weeks and Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 7 will be the monthly medal day.


On Sun­day, the dawnbusters played the back 9 with Lisa Schrung on 56/45 the win­ner ahead of run­ner-up Alan Ford on 50/50.

Third place went to Ge­orge Stevensen on a count back with 55/50.

Near­est-the-pins went to Mark Co­nan and Alan Ford, the snake put­ter was Al Greedy and the least num­ber of putts was Tony Sell­wood with 13. The Brad­man’s went to Barry McKen­zie on 64/65.

Next Sun­day, the dawnies will be on the front 9 and on Sun­day, Au­gust 4, they are trav­el­ling to Bowen by bus to play so they don’t clash with the Proser­pine open.

GREAT ROUND: Satur­day’s monthly Metropole Ho­tel Sta­ble­ford event was taken out by win­ner Gary Scot­ford.
