Stan­thorpe Golf

TWO days of golf last week­end with a sin­gle stable­ford on Satur­day and four­somes cham­pi­onships on Sun­day.

Satur­day’s event was play for the Lau­rie and Val New­ley Me­mo­rial tro­phy. Lau­rie New­ley was a green­keeper at the club and a golf member.

Val New­ley, also a club member and later be­came a keen cro­quet player, ini­tially spon­sored the day’s com­pe­ti­tion in mem­ory of Lau­rie. Thanks to the New­ley fam­ily who now spon­sor the day’s event in mem­ory of both Lau­rie and Val.

The win­ner of the day was Santo Caval­laro with a very good score of 41 points.

Santo’s score be­comes even bet­ter when the next best score for run­ner up was 36 points, re­cip­i­ent be­ing Tom Fit­tock af­ter a count back with Ian Pick­er­ing.

The ladies event was won by Tr­ish Fit­tock with 37 points, early club house leader and not bet­tered. Run­ner-up to An­nelle Bat­ter­ham af­ter a count back with He­len Jones, both play­ers record­ing 34 points. Pin shots went to Greg Fraser at 3, David Reeves at 12 and Mick O’Brien at 17. Kay Webb col­lected best ap­proach at 17. Stephen Kay held the pro-pin at 1/10, Len Leigh at 5/14 and Scott Con­sta­ble at 9/18. Four­somes cham­pi­onships on Sun­day re­sulted in a very good win to Scott Con­sta­ble and Billy

Webb who col­lected the ‘A’ grade tro­phy with a very good score of 117 for the 27 holes. In ‘B’ di­vi­sion, Keith Jones and Bill Pyne closed out the op­po­si­tion af­ter they re­turned 138 for the day.

Best nett re­sult for the day went to Rob Reeves and Stephen Kay with a score of

110. Ap­pre­ci­a­tion to An­der­sens for again spon­sor­ing the men’s four­somes cham­pi­onships this year. The ladies four­somes was again spon­sored by club mem­bers, Mandy Benussi and Lyn Lud­low, and we thank them for their spon­sor­ship. The win­ning team was Nikki Water­worth and Lyn Lud­low af­ter they re­turned 142 shots for the round. Best nett went to Tr­ish Fit­tock and Made­line Jar­man with a score of 108.

In up­com­ing events, the mixed four­somes cham­pi­onships are due early next month and with some ladies look­ing for part­ners, we hope the men are not too shy to ask. Also, the club Open car­ni­val is on at the end of next month and time sheets for th­ese are on the no­tice board.

Next Satur­day is a sin­gle stable­ford spon­sored by An­nelle and Ron Bat­ter­ham. There was some whis­per that gar­den­ing and land­scap­ing work might be on offer for those who play well for the event. Time sheet for the com­pe­ti­tion is on the board.

As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet

A CHILLY morn­ing for Tues­day morn­ing’s As­so­ci­a­tion Cro­quet games. Pat Sch­noor and Peter Tun­bridge played a sin­gles match. Pat be­gan the game by run­ning hoops 1 and 2 in suc­ces­sion. She also had 2 breaks of 3 and went on to win with 26 hoops to Peter’s 18.

Peter also had breaks of 3. The other game had An­drea Denke­witz part­ner­ing Grace Howard against the pair­ing of Heather Wid­d­er­ick and Ef­fey Rus­sell. Grace was play­ing well and recorded a break of 5 in a row as she and An­drea went on to win, 26 hoops to 20. An­drea had 2 breaks of 2.


A SMALL turnout again for Ric­o­chet games on Thurs­day. Peter Tun­bridge and Carol Ver­wey played a sin­gles match. Peter was play­ing some very good shots around the hoops and had a nice break of 4 in a row. Carol was mak­ing the long shots. Peter won 26-20. In the other game, An­drea Denke­witz part­nered Liz Ell­way against Jenny Tun­bridge. Jenny was play­ing re­ally well and hardly missed her shots. An­drea and Liz strug­gled to keep in touch. Jenny went on to ‘peg out’, win­ning 26-15.


FRI­DAY morn­ing’s Gate­ball games were fin­ished at the morn­ing tea break, as some rain set in. The two games we did play were close matches.

Team 1 com­prised Bill Gold­ing, Les Wil­liams, Pat Sch­noor and Heather Wid­d­er­ick, while team 2 was Grace Howard, Jenny

Tur­bridge and An­drea Denke­witz. An­drea and Les each took a turn to ref­eree. Team 1 won the first by just 1 point, scor­ing 10 points to 9. Team 2 did well to get so close, as team 1 were mak­ing their shots well, spark­ing op­po­nents off the court.

The sec­ond game was also close, go­ing to team 1 with 12 points to 10. Team 2 had balls in good po­si­tion for fi­nal as­sault, only to be de­nied by the clock.
