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.
