24/11/16 – 26/11/16
There is no doubt the scoring his improved big time over the past few weeks, with winter looking like it has finally moved on and the course in pristine condition a few players have come good but nobody seems to be able to get close to Brian Thompson and Mick Pedler of late, as these two have hit top form and playing some great golf.
Thursday was a stable ford competition played in good conditions with only a tricky breeze to contend with it was Bob Childs and Brian Thompson who got off to great starts in the front 9 hole competition with Childs winning the count back after both players finished with 18 points. Dave Seymour grabbed third spot also in a count back from Andy Varcoe with 17 points each. Childs and Thompson continued on the good form into the back 9 holes and in a tight finish Childs once again knocked off the unlucky Thompson in a count back to win the 18 hole competition and the day finishing with 37 points, Seymour also held on for third spot beating Varcoe in another count back with both players finishing with 34 points. Thompson capped off a great day out by winning the nearest to the pin award on the par 3,5th hole with a great shot. Good numbers took to the course for Thursday night twilight and it was Shane Dycer from Mt Gambier winning with 21 points
Saturday was a stable ford round played in perfect conditions for golf and with good numbers in the field, the winner was always going to have to play very well. In the A-grade it was Scott Packer who had a great day out, winning with an impressive 40 points from Ben Young in second spot with 37 points and the very consistent Mick Pedler who grabbed third spot with 36 points. In the B-grade it was Brian Thompson who is in fantastic form winning his grade and the best score of the day, finishing with 42 points to be the easy winner from Tony Bowering in second spot with 39 points and Jim Hyland in third spot with 38 points. Nearest to the pin awards went to Terry Chant on the 3rd hole, Andy varcoe won the 5th hole, Scott lonergan was close on the 13th, while Peter Burchard won the 17th, the second shot to the 9th hole for the B-grade was left free, while Varcoe hit the 18th hole closest for his second shot.
