18/01/18 – 20/01/18
With the abandonment of the Thursday Stableford due to the extreme weather and also many of the regular Thursday players boozing at the Coonawarra Cup day, the only comp for the week was Saturday’s stroke round. The winner of the A grade came from the arvo golfers and was won by retired bank manager and all round softy Brian “Marshmallow” Duldig with a fine net 69. Runner up with a net 72 in a countback was Jamie Bellinger who had a bit of tree trouble on the 9th with club president Owen Merrett in 3rd. In the B grade the winner from the 6am group was Bill Mullans who took advantage of the conditions before they harshened also with a net 69. In second place only 1 shot back was Trevor Hutchesson with a net 70 and everybody’s favourite retired mechanic Herman Vanderheul with a net 72. Nearest to the pins for the day were Perth visitor Chris Hollingsworth on the 3rd, Andy Varcoe on the 5th, Peter Burchard on the 13th, Hobby Farmer Brian “Arch” Bowman on the 17th. The club had a collect on the ninth as no one hit it and Andy Varcoe was 50mm from holein out for 2 on 18. Now a few club members are wondering if any can help out poor old Davey Seymour. He has seemed to have misplaced one of his shoes and was spotted wearing odd shoes on the course. Rumours have it the shoe will more than likely be found were his golf swing is.
