AVENEL GOLF CLUB

-

It was a typical spring day last Saturday, with sunshine, wind, rain and more sunshine!

The juniors kicked off the day’s golf, with Ryley Wall edging out Kevin Traynor to collect the winner’s prize.

It was the last round of the club champs for the men, and despite having a comfortabl­e lead, Captain Jed was over-run by defending champion Scoota Donovan, who shot a fabulous 70 off the stick – the lowest score recorded at Avenel since 2007.

With birdies on 15 and 16, Scoota held his nerve for the last two holes to finish two shots ahead of Jed, who shot a handy round of 79.

Congratula­tions, Scoota, and commiserat­ions to Jed.

Two shots separated the contenders for B-grade’s Bernie Steven’s trophy. Dale Smith and Danny (Da da-da da daa) Neville were all square after 10 holes but, as in previous weeks, the back nine specialist, President Dale, ran away with a seven-shot victory, including nearest the pins on 14 and 18, as well as the drive and pitch on 17.

Congratula­tions to Dale — Bern would be chuffed you’ve won his trophy!

Danny wasn’t too worried, as he was still on a high after the Blues beat the Swans!

Bill Eddy went back-toback for the C-grade trophy. While admitting he didn’t have his best round on Saturday, he’d done enough in prior rounds to claim the win.

The Captain’s Trophy for the best three net scores over the championsh­ip rounds was won by (da da-da da daa) Danny Neville.

Campbell Smith is the junior club champion. His opening round of 79 off the stick held him in good stead over the remaining rounds to keep Rayden Hannigan at bay.

Results for the day’s event saw Scoota Donovan claim the winner’s voucher for his fantastic 67 net. Line balls went to Jed, Adam Harrap and Lindsay Smith.

It was also the Gold Medal play-off and with 74 net, the Prez completed a great day’s golf to claim the medal as well as two nearest the pins and the D and P. The birdie hole was the second, which Captain Jed claimed.

Adam Harrap was the lucky winner of the Avenel Meats meat tray.

The women have their tournament on Thursday. The course is in great nick, so hopefully they’ll have a good roll-up.

Thanks to all the volunteers who’ve done a fantastic job keeping the course in such good condition. We all appreciate it.

Good golfing to everyone!
