PROSER­PINE GOLF

PROSER­PINE ju­nior golfer Matty Bluck re­turned to form with a good score of 40 points on Satur­day to take out the Ho­tel Metropole monthly stable­ford event.

He won the event by three points in a re­duced field of only 34 play­ers who braved the wet con­di­tions.

With the Thurs­day com­pe­ti­tion be­ing can­celled due to rain-in­duced course clo­sure, it was an on again, off again event on Satur­day with the de­ci­sion to open the course be­ing left to the last mo­ment.

Play­ers were forced to once again play the front nine twice for the com­pe­ti­tion, with the back nine again be­ing inun­dated.

Run­ner-up to Bluck was club cap­tain Greg Walker who has been show­ing good form of late, com­ing in with 37 points to take out sec­ond on count­back from Mick Ka­vanagh also on 37.

The rest of the run­down com­prised Steve Knight on 36, Gav Noo­nan, Chris Weigand and Jake Nurse all on 35, with Pas­cal Ne­un­reuther, Jim Dowell, and Dar­ren Jones all com­ing in with 34 points.

Ladies win­ner on the day was Wendy Bradley with 27 points.

Near­est-the-pins went to Matt Bluck on both hole 2 and 9. The two shot club once again jack­pot­ted with $65.60 be­ing added to this Satur­day’s event.

Dawnbusters

On Sun­day, 14 Dawnies played the front nine and just got their game in be­fore the rain came and the course was closed.

The win­ner was Larry Muller with a 42/42, run­ner-up was Ge­orge Steven­son with a 56/ 42, and third place went to Barry McKen­zie with 55/44. Near­est-the-pins went to Ge­orge Steven­son on num­ber 2 and Mick Bur­rows on num­ber 9. Chris Hen­der­son won least num­ber of putts with 14 and Al Scott was the Brad­man’s with 63/55.

Next Sun­day the monthly mug will be held, weather per­mit­ing.

This week

Weather per­mit­ting, Satur­day play­ers will com­pete in an 18-hole club spon­sored event, with Thurs­day play­ers com­pet­ing over both 9 and 18holes in a stroke event.

With the weather the way it is at the mo­ment, ei­ther keep an eye on your emails or ring the club first thing in the morn­ing to en­sure the course is open.
