A LIMITED field of 38 play­ers turned out for Satur­day’s Ho­tel Metropole sta­ble­ford monthly event due to a late start be­cause of the 2013 Proser­pine Ju­nior Open.

But this didn’t stop some very good scores, led by Wade Dobson who came in the win­ner with a great 46 sta­ble­ford points.

Run­ner-up was Mark Co­nen on 43 fol­lowed by John Dodds on 40, Stu­art Win on 38, Pas­cal Ne­un­reuther with 37, and A grader Mick Leo back af­ter a two year ab­sence with 36.

Near­est-the-pins went to Lloyd Kingston on hole 2, Pas­cal Ne­un­reuther on 9, Mark Co­nen on 13, and Gary Scot­ford on 16.

The ladies com­pe­ti­tion on the day was won by Wendy Bradley with 31 points.

91-year-golfer old Ge­orge Gnezdiloff once again took out Thurs­day’s 9-hole sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion and only just missed out on the 18hole dou­ble, los­ing on count­back.

He came in with 25 points to win the 9-hole sec­tion of the comp, ahead of Karl Gottschalk on 24.

Next clos­est were Benn Ryan and War­ren Deighton on 23 and J McCall and Gary Kaden on 22.

Gnezdiloff was pipped in the 18hole sec­tion of the comp by Dave Mor­ris on count­back, both com­ing in with great scores of 42 points.

The run­down was Karl Gottschalk and War­ren Deighton on 40, John Dodds and Lance Lloyd on 39, Les Brad­ford 38, and Al­bert Pini beat­ing one other on count­back with 37.

Near­est-the-pins went to Dave Gates on hole 2, Pas­cal Ne­un­reuth- er on 9, Wayne Temby on 13, and Michael Ward on 16.

This Satur­day will see the an­nual run­ning of the Proser­pine leg of the na­tion­wide Holden Scram­ble, an 18-hole am­brose event com­peted for by groups of four golfers each.

Regis­tra­tion is from 10am up­stairs with a shot­gun start at 11am.

Thurs­day play­ers will com­pete in a stroke event over both 9 and 18holes with tee times to suit in­di­vid­u­ally.


Some great scores were posted last week in the sta­ble­ford event held for Marnie Win’s tro­phy day.

Ber­nice Petersen was in fine form, com­ing in with 43 points to take home first prize.

Anna Win­ter­bourn was sec­ond with 42 points and Ti­ina Rand­mae was third on 37 points, on a count back from Mary Tay­lor.

Near­est-the-pin win­ners for last week were Jac­qui Wall on hole 6, Mandy Pater­son on 9, Heather Lu­vis on 13 and Tr­ish Mc­Neill on 14.

For the ladies, next Wed­nes­day will be a bisque par with the Septem­ber monthly medal on Septem­ber 4.

On Sun­day the dawnies played the back 9 on an­other beau­ti­ful morn­ing with the win­ner hav­ing to be de­cided from a 3-way tie on net 50.
