RSL Golf

Stanthorpe Border Post - - SPORT -

A COOL spring morn­ing greeted the 22 golfers who turned out to play for the RSL Monthly Medal last Wed­nes­day.

Af­ter hav­ing been the run­ner up so many times this year, David Burgess fi­nally claimed the win­ners tro­phy with a good round of 69 nett.

Close be­hind, and chas­ing his third medal of the year, was Keith Jones on a nett 70. Dave was on fire with the pin shots as well, win­ning the third.

There were no tak­ers for the twelfth, but Keith Allen chipped in for a birdie to win the sev­en­teenth. Keith also won the putting for the day, and new­comer Barry Hughes won the NAGA.

Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion, the RSL golfers kept with their prac­tice of re­mem­ber­ing sig­nif­i­cant events in

Aus­tralia’s mil­i­tary his­tory.

To­day’s talk was cen­tred around Afghanistan, and the group lis­tened in­tently as the ci­ta­tion for the award­ing of the Vic­to­ria Cross to Trooper Mark Don­ald­son was read out.

The RSL golfers will play their next game next Thurs­day due to a visit from the Ten­ter­field ladies on Wed­nes­day.

The Ladies Monthly Medal was won by Lynette Lud­low, with Linda Kelly the run­ner-up. Putts went to Lynette, with An­nelle Bat­ter­ham and Chris­tine Wel­stead win­ning the pin shots.

WIN­NER: Santo Caval­laro has again got his name on the Lau­rie and Val New­ley Tro­phy win­ning the New­ley Me­mo­rial Golf Day on Satur­day, con­grat­u­lated by Golf Club pres­i­dent Steve Kay.
