Local Barrista wins Stableford

11/01/18 – 13/01/18

On Thursday 11th of Jan the Millicent Golf Club held a stableford round in unexpecred cooler than expected conditions and it was Millicent newest barrista Mark “Pilly” Pilmore who stepped away from the heat of the kitchen to the cauldron of the golf course to win with 38 points. Rumours are Rife in the club that he has been setting up the course to suit his gentle fade. The rumours can be substantiated by the runner up in a countback for the 2nd time in a week Andrew Ferguson who also has a fade. In the the 9 hole comp Ferguson turned the tables on his 2nd placing from the 18 hole comp for a win with club stalward Bruce Packer losing in a countback to finish 2nd both with 19pts. On Saturday with 33 entrants and with the pins and course setup for scoring but with wind and rain about it was proven wet tracker Alan Schultz from the 7am group who won the A Grade and also the day with a respectable 37pts. In 2nd place in the A grade on a countback with 37pts was Andrew Varcoe who just returned from a hiatus from losing his “Royal Melbourne” ball marker. In 3rd place rounding out the 3 way countback was Viv Bennison also on 37pts. In the B grade it was club life member Graham “Arch” Sunderland who had a fine day with 36pts finishing ahead of Brian Thomson and Mick Pedlar both with 35pts. Nearest to pins were local sparky Scott Lonergan on the 3rd, Peter Burchard had the closest shot on the 5th, “The Scribe” got lucky and had the closest shot on the 13th and 17th. Nearest for 3 on the 9th was Ron Hateley and nearest for 2 on 18 was Varcoe. Birdies paid out 3 balls each to Scott Lonergan, Jamie Bellinger and “The Scribe”. *Footnote* If anyone finds Paul “Rubbish” Whitfords bottom lip between the 10th green and 11th tee block could they please hand it in to the bar in the club as it would be much appreciated.

Trophy Hunter wins 2nd Monthly Medal

4/1/18 to 6/1/18

First of all we would like to congratulate long time Millicent golf club member Graham “Poppy” Warrenopollis on his 70th birthday celebrated this past weekend. On Thursday 4th Jan the club was greeted with 23 starters in the stableford comp with very pleasant golf conditions and it was Kevin Rainey who came out with all guns blazing to fire 21points on the front nine. In 2nd position came the inform Herman Vanderhuel with 19points on a countback. In the 18 hole comp it was the very much improved and long hitting Justin Saint who had 39 points to win on a 3 way countback from Viv Bennison 2nd and Rainey 3rd. Nearest to the pin on 5th was club captain Trevor Atkinson. Saturday the Monthly Medal was contested in one of the hottest days seen on the golf course in a long time and we had 18 brave souls play and the winner of the medal and the A Grade came out of the invitation only group and was Phil “Trophy” Hunter. “Trophy” has had a good run in the monthly medal in the last 3 months with 2 wins and a narrow 2nd place. Some are now saying that he is the best big game player in the club. In 2nd position and to narrowly miss on a countback was Andrew Fergusson both with a net 72 with Matt Warren filling the minor places with a net 75. In the B grade there was only 2 players with Scott Lonergan winning with at net 79 from Jim Hyland who had a net 80. NTP’s for the day were 3rd and 17th hole Scott Packer, 5th was Trevor Atkinson again, 13th was visitor Lee Coulthard. Nearest for 2 on the 9th was the club and 2nd shot on 18 was Graham “Poppy” Warrenopollis. This Thursday and Saturday we have a stableford Comp.
