GOLF: Satur­day play­ers en­joyed a some­what rarer form of play when 61 men and 11 women took to the course for a game of Chapman four­somes, some­times also known as Cana­dian four­somes.

The game vari­a­tion in­volved each pair of play­ers both hit­ting off, then play­ing each other’s drive be­fore de­cid­ing which ball to play from the third shot on­wards, which are played with al­ter­na­tive hits from each player on the same ball.

Win­ners on the day were Rod Wecker and Kevin Camp­bell with 60.5, one-and-a-half shots ahead of run­ners-up Tr­ish McNeill and Sherri Meade on 62.

In third place were John Dodds and Michael Cragg on 62, fol­lowed in the run­down by The­u­nis Ven­ter and Wayne Fitzger­ald (63), Danny York and Ja­son Bartz, Jim Dow­ell and Troy Hayes, Jake Nurse and Meg Lyons (64), Wendy Bradley and Vic Feld­man, Benn Ryan and Steve Ste­wart, Lance Lloyd and Lloyd Kingston (65), Kym Hill and Chris Bai­ley, Gary and El­speth Scot­ford (65.5) and Dean Kercher and Penny Wardroper (66).

No one got near­est the pin on num­ber nine, with Fin­bar O’Flynn tak­ing it home on 13, and Tina Baden­horst on 16.

Thurs­day play­ers com­peted in a stroke event, with the 18hole divi­sion one win go­ing to Dean Kercher, who nar­rowly beat Paul Joice on count­back with 64 each.

Divi­sion two was claimed by Jim Dow­ell on 68, beat­ing run- ner-up Ge­orge Me­harry by one stroke on 69, who came in ahead of Dave Thomas on count­back, also with a nett 69.

In the divi­sion one run­down were Steve Ste­wart, Dave Rum­ble (66), Vic Feld­man (67), Peter Fox, War­ren Deighton and Pas­cal Ne­un­reuther (69).

Paul Joice took out the nine­hole com­pe­ti­tion with a nett score of 30, ahead of run­nerup Dave Rum­ble (30.5). In the run­down were Steve Ste­wart (32), Brad Al­bert­son, Les Brad­ford (33) and Ge­orge Me­harry (33.5).
