Famous local Greek family the “Warrenopollis’s” had a day to remember at the golf course Thursday with the father son duo of “Poppy” and “Wazza” cleaning up. Wazza who had an eagle on the par5 7th hole, the first eagle at the club in 5 months since “Trophy” Hunters won himself 19 drink vouchers for his efforts. He also came 2nd in a countback with 21pts in the nine hole comp with the evergreen Mick Pedlar winning with 21pts also. Dad “Poppy” had a good day also with ntp on the 5th hole and a 3rd place in the 18 hole comp with 38pts. One could say that there was alot of the traditional greek beverage “Ouzo” consumed in the club house after the round with brother “Mike” Warrenopollis visiting from Sydney to also getting amongst the celebrations. In 2nd place in the 18 hole comp continuing his fine day was Mick Pedlar with 39pts. The winner who had his new 3 wood firing on all cylinders from the 7am group was Ian Todd with a magnificent 40pts. With extreme heat forecast for Saturday’s Par round only 14 players entered with club captain Trevor Atkinson winning the day and also the B grade producing a career best and a sizzling plus 9 to easily cover his opponents. In the A Grade with a score of plus 5 which would be good enough to win most weeks was Ian Greenwood with Alan Schultz winning a countback for 2nd with plus 3. Atkinson won the B grade with retired Millicent basketball icon Scott Lonergan finishing 2nd with Plus 2. Nearest to pins for the day went to Greenwood on 3rd, Lonergan claiming the 5th, Phil “Thrusta” Thrussell the 13th, Ben “Hotdawgs” Golding the long par 3 17th. Nearest for 3 on the 9th was Atkinson and no one good enough to get it on the green for 2 on 18. This week we have a Stableford on Thursday with the Monthly Medal and Putting Comp on Saturday.
