WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

IT WAS a very busy day for Whit­sun­day golfers last Sun­day, as 36 play­ers teed off for the March monthly medal stroke com­pe­ti­tion.

The com­pe­ti­tion is be­ing played un­der new di­vi­sions with men’s A and B and la- dies A and B grades, and changes have also been made to the near­est-thep­ins and long­est drives.

The greens staff had a huge job to have the course ready af­ter the re­cent weather. Ac­cu­racy was im­por­tant and the greens tested the best put­ters all the way.

There was just enough cloud cover to keep play­ing con­di­tions pleas­ant and the high­light of the day was an ea­gle for Kym Hill on the 4th.

He started with a cracking drive us­ing his 3 wood, landed just off the green with his sec­ond shot us­ing his 2 hy­brid and fin­ished with a chip-in us­ing his 9 iron. There were lots of smiles and dancing on the green at the 19th hole to cel­e­brate.

The win­ner of men’s A grade was Dean Kercher on nett 65, with Lance Lloyd the run­ner-up on nett 72.

Ross Richards had the best gross score and the long­est drive.

The win­ner in the men’s B grade was Brad Ham­mond on nett 67, fol­lowed by Don Hope on nett 70.

The best gross score was Mark Win­ter and the long­est drive went to Brad Bowring.

Ti­ina Rand­mae won the ladies A grade on nett 79, with Linda Wardroper fol­low­ing on nett 85.

The best gross score went to Anna Win­ter­bourn and the long­est drive went to Linda Wardroper. Pauline Red­path won the B grade, fol­lowed by Joanne Moyni­han

Pauline Red­path had the long­est drive. Near­est-thep­ins went to Ross Richards on the first shot on the 13th. In the men’s A grade, it was Rod Wecker on hole 2, Ross Richards on the ninth and Ernie Hol­stein on hole 16. Mark Ni­col got near­est-thep­ins on num­ber 16 in B grade and in the ladies A grade, it was Ti­ina Rand­mae on the ninth.

Next Sun­day there will be a 2-ball am­brose com­pe­ti­tion.

Each player must use 9 drives each, with tee off at 7.30am.

GOLF CHAMPS: Win­ner of ladies A grade Ti­ina Rand­mae, men's B grade win­ner Brad Ham­mond with ladies B grade win­ner Pauline Red­path at the Whit­sun­day Golf Club's pre­sen­ta­tions at the Reef Gate­way on Sun­day af­ter­noon.
