Fancy dress for Tur­key Day

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

A NUM­BER of the male play­ers took ad­van­tage of the an­nual Tur­key Day rules to turn up dressed as ladies, thereby let­ting them hit off from the ladies tees.

It was a good move for the day’s run­ner-up “Jackie” Nurse, who fin­ished among the win­ners.

Forty-three men and six ladies com­peted in won­der­ful con­di­tions in a ver­sus par event, with the win­ner on the day be­ing Paul Len­non who came in with a score of +5.

“Jackie” Nurse carded a +3 to take out the run­nerup, ahead on count back from Michael Ka­vanagh and John Heron, also scor­ing +3s.

The rest of the run­down com­prised David Smith on +2, Nick Wat­son (who also wore drag), Steve New and Gavin Ker­wand all +1, with Greg Walker squar­ing the card.

Tr­ish McNeill took out the ladies comp with an all square, ahead of run­ner-up Jac­qui Wall on –1.

Near­est-the-pins went to Stuart Win on hole 2, Michael Ka­vanagh on 9, Gavin Milne on 13, and Paul Len­non on 16.

There was no win­ner in the two-shot club which jack­pots to next week.

Thurs­day was a rosy day for John Roser who took out the 18-hole stroke comp on Thurs­day with a fine 62, three ahead of run­ner-up John Dodds on 65.

With 56 play­ers com­pet­ing, the 18-hole run­down in­cluded Peter Scrivens on 67, Wayne Temby 69 and John Grosskreutz 70.

Al­bert Pini and Ross Meade were next on 71 with Ernie Hol­stein and Les Brad­ford com­ing in with 72, ahead on count back from five oth­ers.

The 9-hole comp was won by Al Greedy with a nett 26, ahead of run­ner-up Kelvin Stephens on 27.

The rest of the run­down com­prised John Roser and Peter Scrivens on 28, Dar­ren Jones and Ge­orge Gnezdiloff on 30, John Dodds 31, Dave Rum­ble 32, with Tom Flem­ing ahead on count back from four oth­ers with a 33.

Near­est-the-pins went to Dar­ren Jones on hole 2, Tony Wool­ridge on 9, Steve Mitchell on 13 and Al­lan Scott on 16.

Satur­day will see play­ers com­pet­ing over 18-holes sta­ble­ford for the monthly Ho­tel Metropole comp, with tee times to suit in­di­vid­u­ally from 6.30am on­wards.

Thurs­day play­ers will also be com­pet­ing in a sta­ble­ford event over both 9 and 18-holes, also with in­di­vid­ual tee times to suit, but please reg­is­ter with the pro shop to en­sure smooth play on both days.
