20/04/17 – 23/04/17
With summer now just a distant memory, the days for golf have now become a bit hit and miss, with the heavens opening up on some days and bright sun shine on others, the A2 pennants side had to make the big trip down to Kingstown last Sunday to play the undefeated Bordertown team. To say it was I tough day at the office is an understatement going down 0-5, but in saying that a big thank you must go to Trevor Atkinson, Paul Whitford and Justin Saint who put their hands up to represent the club at A-2 level, with only 3 players there was a big handicap difference and we had to forfeit the last 2 games.
Last Thursday, there was only 8 brave souls who ventured out to the course and with the threat of 20-40 mm of rain to come, the players set off in calm weather conditions. Unfortunately things changed for the worse and play had to be cancelled after 9 holes. Mark Pilmore had a good front nine winning the 9 hole competition with 20 points from Brian Thomson close behind with 19 points and Trevor Hutchesson finished in third spot with 18 points. Nobody managed to the hit the par 3, 5th hole for the nearest to the pin award.
Last Saturday saw the weather fine up and good numbers turn up for a stable ford competition and it was the inform Paul Whitford who made the most of the conditions to put the heat on the rest of the field, playing in the early invitation only group, Whitford had his driver on song and is now rated the best off the tee in the club to shoot 79 off the stick for 40 points. Whitford would now be very close to a single figure handicap which would be a great achievement for all the hard work he has put in. The only player that could match Whitford was “Spike” Warren, playing in the afternoon, Warren also had 40 points but had to settle for second spot, losing a count back to Whitford, and Greg Cook finished in third with 39 points. In The B-grade it was a tight tussle with Scott Lonergan winning on a count back from Dave Seymour with 36 points, Ron Hateley grabbed third spot in another count back from Graham Sunderland with 34 points. Nearest to the pin awards went to Tony Bowering on the 3rd, Daniel Halliday had a good day out winning the 5th and 13th holes while lonergan was close on the 17th hole. Lonergan and Bowering capped off a good day out making their birdie putts to pick up 3 balls each.
Sunday 7th May is the Thomas Foods International Millicent Open Starting from 9am, entry fee is $25.00 including afternoon tea. Please book your place with Trevor Atkinson. This week we have our A2 and Handicap pennants sides playing Blue Lakes at Penola on Sunday.
