16/6/16 – 18/6/16
After the trip down to the subzero conditions in Loxton the weekend before, it must have been great to be back in the warm sunny south east, by all reports everyone had a great time, maybe a little too great on the Saturday night by some of the scores on the Sunday, but that’s what it’s all about. Also Congratulations to John Reynolds for qualifying number 1 in the A-grade.
Thursday was a stableford round played in cool windy conditions which made scoring difficult except for Bob Childs and Phil hunter who got off to a great start winning the front 9 hole competition with 17 points each from 5 players on 16 points. Childs kept his good round going on the back 9 holes to win the 18 hole competition and the day with 36 points from hunter in second with 34 points and Terry chant in third with 33points. Trevor Atkinson won the nearest to the pin award for a fine shot on the par 3, 5th hole.
Saturday was the final round for qualifying for the club championship played in perfect conditions for golf and the course in fantastic condition made for some good score cards handed in. Owen Merrett had a good day out to win the A-grade with a fine 79-9-net 70 from Alan Schultz in second spot with 79-8-net 71 and Phil Hunter and Andy Varcoe finishing in third both shooting 79-7- net 72. In the B-grade it was Martin Cameron winning on a count back from Mark Pilmore, both finishing with net 69 and Bill Mullen’s in third with a net 70.
