Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

Cel­e­brat­ing their an­nual Tur­key Day to wind up the year’s com­pe­ti­tions, 76 mem­bers turned out on Satur­day for a two-per­son am­brose event, with men who were game enough to wear ladies’ clothes get­ting a four stroke ad­van­tage. This worked well for Jake Nurse and Meg Lyons, with the for­mer’s an­nual fe­male at­tire prov­ing par­tic­u­larly eye-catching, as the duo carded 58.5 for the day. The run­ners-up were Nick Langevad and Western Moss (58.75), fol­lowed by Rob and Shelli Stan­ley (59), Ann Gardel and Kevin Camp­bell (59.25) and Paul and Kaylem Douth­waite (59.75).

Af­ter the game, the club held its an­nual pre­sen­ta­tions with the hon­our board event for three grades in men’s graded match play go­ing to Rob Stan­ley (A-grade), Nick Watson (B) and War­ren Deighton (C) – who also won a shirt to com­mem­o­rate his re­cent hole-in-one.

The win­ner of the men’s hand­i­cap match play was Jake Nurse, whose name will go onto the hon­our board. The run­ner-up was Ross McNeill while the win­ner of the Medal of Medal­lists went to Pas­cal Ne­un­reuther, who also claimed the C-grade ti­tle.

The A-grade ti­tle went to Rob Stan­ley while Ross McNeill claimed the B-grade prize. The men’s golfer of the year was Rob Stan­ley and the men’s or­der of merit ti­tle went to Troy Smith, with Rob Stan­ley and Ross McNeill fin­ish­ing sec­ond and third re­spec­tively.

Mean­while, Thurs­day play­ers com­peted in a three­way event with the Al­bert Pini Tro­phy over the front nine go­ing to Mark Thomp­son (24).

In con­junc­tion with this was a three-ball best ball sta­ble­ford event over 18-holes, won by Bren­dan Me­harry, Mark Thomp­son and Rob Webb (53).

The run­ners-up ti­tle went to Peter Fox, Trevor Paroz and Jim Cochrane, who beat out War­ren Deighton, Paul Joice and Vic Feld­man (52).

The nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion on the back nine went to War­ren Deighton, who beat run­ner-up Rob Webb on a count­back with 24. Josh Tarver, Craig Langevad, Tony Wool­ridge (23) and Trevor Paroz (22) not far be­hind. Near­est­the-pins went to Michael Cragg (2), Mick Bur­rows (9), War­ren Deighton (13) and Rob Stan­ley (16).

This week Satur­day play­ers will con­test the Ho­tel Metropole Monthly Sta­ble­ford while Thurs­day’s field fights for a sta­ble­ford event in two di­vi­sions over 18-holes as well as a nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion.


The Dawnies played the back nine on Sun­day at the Proser­pine Golf Club, with John An­der­son pre­vail­ing with a round of 48/37. An­der­son won af­ter a chip-off with Beryl Nos­wor­thy while Vic Feld­man (44/38) fin­ished third.

No-one claimed the near­est­the-pin flag on 13 while Mick Bur­rows had the best ef­fort on 16.
