WHIT­SUN­DAY GOLF

WHIT­SUN­DAY golfers played the Septem­ber Air­lie Panel and Paint Monthly Medal stroke com­pe­ti­tion last Sun­day.

Putting was the is­sue for a num­ber of play­ers, with the greens prov­ing es­pe­cially dif­fi­cult at the week­end.

Ernie Hol­stein res­ur­rected his game after an un­lucky start which saw him tan­gled with trees on more than one oc­ca­sion to sal­vage his game with a stun­ning ea­gle’s nest drive on no. 16.

The ball landed within a me­tre of the pin to earn him a box of golf balls.

Mick Ca­ton was the men’s A-grade win­ner on 68 fol­lowed by Rod Wecker (71).

Ross Richards en­joyed a solid out­ing to fin­ish with both the best gross score and long­est drive.

The men’s B-grade win­ner was David Hoy (72), just one clear of Mark Win­ter (73).

Reg Kercher smacked the long­est drive while Mark Ni­cole had the best gross score.

Linda Wardroper bested the ladies to fin­ish with a round of 68.

The run­ner-up on the day was Tessa Aitken (69), while Anna Win­ter­bourn won both the best gross score and the long­est drive.

Rob McFar­lane (no. 9), Scotty Wardroper (13), Mal Carter (2), Ernie Hol­stein (16), Jac­qui Wall (16), Linda Wardroper (2) and Penny Wardroper (16) claimed near­est-the-pins.

This week­end Whit­sun­day golfers will travel to Mag­netic Is­land.

Play­ers are urged to be at the Reef Gate­way Ho­tel at 10.30am on Fri­day.

GRINNERS: Ian Giles, Tessa Aitken, Mick Ca­ton and Mark Win­ter had a good run at golf on Sun­day.

HEY HOL­LY­WOOD: Ernie Hol­stein hit the ea­gles nest on the 16th hole.
