Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

PROSER­PINE GOLF: Rob Stan­ley lived up to his rep­u­ta­tion as Proser­pine Golf Club’s best player by tak­ing out an open dou­ble over the week­end.

The lo­cal won the Men’s Open Cham­pi­onship on Sun­day af­ter claim­ing the Mixed Four­somes Open with part­ner Tr­ish McNeill on Satur­day.

Stan­ley’s gross score of 114 over 27 holes in the Men’s Open ex­acted re­venge upon last year’s win­ner, Pi­o­neer Val­ley’s Peter Brit­tain, by one stroke.

A high­light of the day was a four-way play-off to de­cide the B-grade ti­tle, with club cap­tain Greg Walker ul­ti­mately pre­vail­ing on the first play-off hole to claim the ti­tle.

Other grade cham­pi­ons for the day were Dar­ren Jones (A1) and David Bower (C).

Run­ners-up in the gross ti­tles were Peter Brit­tain (A), Steve Stewart (A1), Tony Sell- wood (B) and Wayne Rus­sell (C).

The net win­ners on the day were Lloyd Kingston (A), Lance Lloyd (A1), Ben Ryan (B) and a bril­liant win to Ken Wyl­lie (C).

The net run­ners-up were Scott Grigg (A), Matty Bower (A1), Travis Clinch (B) and Peter Spiers (C).

A packed field of 95 play­ers from both lo­cal and away clubs con­tested the premier event with the near­est-the-pins go­ing to Steve Stewart (9) and Mick Gi­b­ley (16).

In Satur­day’s Mixed Four­somes Open, run­ners-up be­hind Stan­ley and Tr­ish McNeill were the hus­ban­dand-wife team of Larry and Lyn Muller ahead of War­ren and He­len Deighton, Ross Meade and Paula McQuat, Dennis and Glo­ria Davis, Chris Doblo and Glo­ria Davis, and Perri Simp­son and Paula Wron­ski.

Near­est-the-pins went to Rob Stan­ley on 13 and Anne Fenton on 16.

The men’s long­est drive went to Larry Muller, while Meg Lyons took the ladies’ ti­tle. In other news, Thurs­day’s sta­ble­ford event at the Proser­pine Golf Club was blitzed by Brent Franke, who carded a bril­liant score to win the di­vi­sion two ti­tle.

Franke carded a round of 49-points to top-score across both di­vi­sions.

Bill Woods (41) won the di­vi­sion one ti­tle ahead of Michael Ward, Troy Hayes (38), Steve Knight (36), Paul Joice and Steve Stewart (35).

The di­vi­sion two run­ner-up was Ron Jamieson on 39 who fin­ished ahead of Peter Scrivens (38), Dave Thomas, Mal Carter (37) and Nick Apruzzese (36).

It was a dou­ble de­light for Franke on the day who also won the nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion with 28.

Tim McBride (25) was sec­ond fol­lowed by Troy Hayes, Ron Jamieson (22), James Tozer (21) and Barry Macken­zie (20).

Near­est-the-pins went to Alan Scott (2), Jim Cochrane (9) and An­drew Al­bergo (13 and 16).


On Sun­day the Dawnies trav­elled to Bowen to play the monthly mug com­pe­ti­tion.

Al Greedy was the win­ner on the day, carding 53/58 to edge out Mau­rie Moody (60/ 39) and John An­der­son (48/ 40).

Near­est-the-pins went to Al Ford (no. 3), Mau­rie Moody (7) and Al Greedy (9).

The snake put­ter on the day was Mau­rie Moody while Bob Slater’s 14 putts were the least for the day. Ernie Hol­stein’s round of 58/60 was recog­nised with the brad­man. This Sun­day the Dawnies will be back at the Proser­pine Golf Club.

CHAMPS: Tr­ish McNeill and Rob Stan­ley won the 2015 Mixed Four­somes.
