WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

A GOOD field of 26 Whit­sun­day golfers played a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day on a mag­nif­i­cent course in per­fect con­di­tions.

Tem­per­a­tures climbed dur­ing the morn­ing to re­sult in a very warm day with­out any breeze of­fer­ing warmer and dryer play­ing con­di­tions.

The green course meant very lit­tle run on the fair­ways and tricky greens proved hard to read.

Anna Win­ter­bourn and Mark Win­ter played out­stand­ing games and play­ers ad­journed to the Reef Gate­way for the pre­sen­ta­tion with many chang­ing garb to green to cel­e­brate St Patrick’s Day.

In A grade, the win­ner of the day was Ron Jamieson on 35 points, ahead of run­ner-up Kym Hill on 33 points.

The best gross score went to Scotty Wardroper and Kym Hill came home with the long­est drive.

Mark Win­ter, who also scored the long­est drive, was the B grade win­ner on 37 points, closely fol­lowed by run­ner-up Reg Kercher on 35 points and Mick Ca­ton scored the best gross score.

In C grade, Wilf Her­weg was the win­ner on 29 points, three ahead of run­ner-up Ian Giles on 26.

Anna Win­ter­bourn took out the ladies com­pe­ti­tion on 37 points, with Linda Wardroper fin­ish­ing as the run­ner-up on 35.

The best gross score went to Ti­ina Rand­mae and Anna Win­ter­bourn also scored the long­est drive on the day.

Near­est-the-pins in A and B grade was Wayne Temby with his first shot on 13 and Ge­off Har­ri­son with his first shot on 16. In C grade, Wilf Her­weg was near­est-the-pins with his sec­ond shot on 2 and in the ladies, Linda Wardroper with her sec­ond shot on 2 and Ti­ina Rand­mae with her first shot on 13.

Next Sun­day will be a two-ball am­brose com­pe­ti­tion with tee off at 7.30am.

The com­pe­ti­tion and pre­sen­ta­tion will be fol­lowed by a gen­eral meet­ing.
