LONERGAN HITS TOP FORM

16/02/17 – 18/02/17

March and April are going to be a very busy months out at the Millicent Golf course, with Pennants golf starting this week, the Millicent, Loxton, Blackwood tri series, the AGM is also just around the corner and the good Friday 4 ball Ambrose and Easter is not that far away, now is the time to start organising teams.

Last Thursday was one of those perfect day’s for golf, and scoring was always going to be high for the Stable ford competition and it was Keith Thrussell playing in the first group out on the course in the morning who set the bar very high, winning the front 9 hole competition with 20 points, Brian Duldig and Bob Childs did all the chasing but couldn’t catch Thrussell, finishing in second and third spots with 19 points. Thrussell tired on the back 9 holes and it was Mark Pilmore who flew home with 23 points to win the 18 hole competition and the day with 40 points, Duldig kept his good form going, finishing in second with 37 points while Dave Seymour had a splendid back 9 holes to finish in third with 36 points. The Nearest to the pin winner for the day went to Robert “Tank” Thompson, with a great shot on the par 3, 5th hole, which would have looked very good from the tee block, giving Thompson an easy tap in birdie.

Saturday was also a great day for golf, even with the wind picking up in the afternoon, good numbers greeted the starter for a stable ford competition and scoring was going to be high. In the A-grade it was Owen Merrett playing in the morning who took advantage of the calm conditions to win with a handy 37 points, Martin Cameron had his driver working well to claim second with 35 points and Ian Greenwood grabbed third with 34 points. In The B-grade it was Scott Lonergan who had a big day out, winning his grade and also having the best score of the day, finishing with a whopping 41 points, Dave Seymour has started to find some good form finishing second with 37 points on a count back from Peter Burchard in third also with 37 points and Chris Bailey also has a good round with 36 points. Nearest to the pin winners saw Cameron on the 3rd, Chis Bailey won the 5th hole, Greenwood hit the 13th, while Jamie Bellinger won the 17th, The B-graders left the 2nd shot to the 9th green free, while Paul Whitford grabbed the 2nd shot to the 18th green. Birdies paid out 2 balls to Phil Hunter, Brian Duldig, Bailey and Bellinger.

For all those that can’t get down to Blackwood for the tri series on the March long weekend, but would be keen for a day trip to Blackwood for the Sunday 12th March, Please let Martin Cameron know if you are interested. If there is enough interest we will look at a bus for the trip. Now is also the time to start organising your team for the Easter Good Friday 4 ball Ambrose event on 14/04/2017. Today is a stable ford competition as is Saturday’s competition.

WARREN DOMINATION CONTINUES.

09/02/17 –  11/02/17

Once again, we have been so lucky with the weather this summer, and last week was no exception, 30mm of rain one day, and then warm days for the rest of the week, it’s no wonder along with all our fantastic volunteer’s that the golf course is in perfect condition and only getting better each week.

With the temperatures hitting 41 deg last Wednesday and the promise of a warm day on Thursday, most players decided to hit the course early to beat the heat for the Stable ford competition and it was “Spike Warren” out in the first group of the day, teeing off just on dawn who continued his domination, winning the 18 hole competition and the day with an impressive 38 points. Mark Pilmore got up for second spot in a three way count back with 37 points from Phil Hunter and Andy Varcoe also with 37 points. The 9 hole competition was held on the back 9 holes for a change and it was Pilmore who had the best back nine finishing with 19 points to knock off the early morning group of Warren, Hunter and Varcoe all finishing with 18 points. Nearest to the pin winner on the par 3,5th hole went to Pilmore, playing in the last group of the day, and having the last hit in his group, was the only player to hit the green for the day, the managed to have a three putt.

Saturday was a perfect day for golf, and good numbers greeted the starter for a stroke round, with the weather and course in great condition it was going to take a great round to finish on the podium and it was the Father, Son duet of Bruce and Scott Packer who dominated the day. In the A-grade it was Scott Packer having the best score of the day with a fantastic round of 78-10-68, Terry Chant continued his good form of late to grab second with 74-3-71, while Ian Greenwood got up for third in a count back with 79-7-72 from Brian Duldig also finishing with net 72. In the B-grade it was Bruce Packer winning a count back from Glen Tilley after both players finished with 94-21-73, while Arch Sunderland finished close behind in third with 90-16-74. Nearest to the pin awards for the day went to Duldig on the 3rd, Jim Hyland 5th, Hyland also got his birdie putt to win 2 balls, Paul Whitford 13th, the 17th and the 2 shot on the 9th green was not hit so a win for the club, while Ben Golding won the 2nd shot to the 18th green. Birdies for the day paid out 2 balls to Chant, Varcoe and Hyland.

The first round of the Millicent, Blackwood, Loxton Tri series is only a few weeks away, with a trip down to Blackwood to start out title defence, as many players as possible would be great. Pennants golf is also about to start, with the A2 team having a bye first up and the handicap side travelling to Bordertown first up. Today is a Stable ford competition playing for the Summer Masters trophy, while Saturday is also a Stable ford competition.
