Excellent scores were the order of the day, with the Nine Hole Competition being played on the back nine and Bruce Packer winning with 22 points, one better than Graham Sunderland who was in second place with 21 and Brian Thomson coming in third with 20 points.
Bruce proved to be the most consistent on the day, finishing with 41 points to win the 18 Hole Competition as well. Graham Warren’s 40 points earned him second place and Graham Sunderland came in third with 39 points.
Terry Chant was Nearest to the Pin on the Par 3, 5th hole.
On Saturday, a field of 28 men played a Stableford Competition. Scores were not as good as Thursday’s competitors, even though conditions were ideal for golf.
Matt Warren came in as the winner of the A Grade with 37 points, surviving the countback over Owen Merrett also on 37. Alan Schultz was in third place with 36 points.
Brian Thomson once again featured in the winner’s circle with 36 points to win the B Grade from Mick Pedler and David Seymour, both on 33 points, Mick winning the countback for second place.

Birdies on the Par 3 holes were achieved by Phil Hunter, Alan Schultz and Bill Mullan, all being awarded two golf balls each.
On Sunday, the annual OP Williams Mixed Pinehurst Foursomes was held. The late Owen P Williams who is a Life Member of the Millicent Golf Club initiated this event more than 50 years ago. Even though the format has changed in recent years, it is still a great social day and enjoyed by those who participate. Since Owen’s passing, his family has continued to sponsor the event in his memory.
Helen Chilton and Peter Burchard had the best score of the day with a nett 65 1/2. Runners up were Janet Watson and Ian Greenwood with nett 68 and in third place was Val Williams and Mick Pedler with nett 69.
It is believed that a “record” was broken at the Millicent Golf Club on Sunday, with last year’s winners amassing an unbelievable 17 strokes on the 6th hole after having 13 shots out of the bunker, the remainder of their round was very respectable.
Next Saturday’s Competition for both Men and Ladies is Stableford.
