WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

A STRONG field of 30 golfers played a two ball Am­brose stroke com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day where each team mem­ber had to use nine drives each.

The front 9 was played twice to make up the 18 holes and some ex­cep­tional shots were played on the day.

The front 9 holes had re­cov­ered re­mark­ably well af­ter Cy­clone Ita and the ground staff and vol­un­teers are to be com­mended on their hard work to open the course for the Easter break.

The two-ball Am­brose is al­ways a pop­u­lar event and play­ers never shy away from show­ing their com­pet­i­tive streaks on the course.

Play­ers made the most of the beau­ti­ful sunny con­di­tions and found it hard to be­lieve that only a week ago the course had been un­der­wa­ter due to the heavy rain and winds of Cy­clone Ita.

Ge­off Har­ri­son and Wilf Her­weg were the over­all win- ners on the day with a nett score of 65 ¾.

They were fol­lowed by run­ners-up Mark Ni­coll and Mick Ca­ton with a nett 69 ¼ , on a count­back from Scott and Linda Wardroper.

Long­est drives in the men’s A grade went to Kym Hall, with David Hoy tak­ing out the men’s B grade.

In the ladies A grade the long­est drive went to Anna Win­ter­bourn and in the B grade Jac­qui Wall.

Har­ri­son and Her­weg cleaned out the men’s com­pe­ti­tion near­est-the-pins with their sec­ond shot on 2 and first shot on 9.

Near­est-the-pins for the ladies was Ti­ina Rand­mae with her sec­ond shot on hole 2, and Anna Win­ter­bourn with her sec­ond shot on 9.

Next Sun­day will be a monthly medal with tee off at 7.30am.

If there is a count­back, the player wear­ing a club shirt will win.

EVENT WIN­NERS: Two-ball am­brose over­all win­ners Wilf Her­weg and Ge­off Har­ri­son, with Scott and Linda Wardroper who fin­ished in a tie for sec­ond with Mick Ca­ton and Paul Ni­col (stand­ing in for Mark Ni­col) at the Reef Gate­way on Sun­day.
