FROM THE BUNKER GOLF REPORT 01/06/2019   

Saturday’s round of golf was the Monthly Medal and Putting comp for the month of June and as per normal with medal round’s its also the WS Degaris Winter eclectic comp as well. Golfers where greeted with mainly fine but very still and cold weather for their golfing day and it was so cold it didn’t even rain. A field of 34 men and two ladies took out cards which is pretty good considering some of the weather we have had in the past two weeks. The conditions proved very hard for most golfers with only three golfers breaking their handicaps and only one other golfer playing to their handicaps. The eventual winner of the June Monthly Medal was local businessman Scott Lonergan winning with a well-constructed net 69 this score also seen Scott Lonergan take out the B Grade Competition from Geoff Cameron with a net 74. The A Grade winner was Phil Hunter with excellent net 71 winning one a countback from Terry Chant also on 71. The bull rundown paid out to Owen Merrett on net 72, Ben Golfing net 73, Andy Varcoe net 73 and Ronald Hateley on 75 c/b. Phil Hunter also took out the putting comp with a misely total of 26 putts and birdies were only had by Martin Cameron and Ben Golding. Greg Cook took out the Third nearest to pin, Martin Cameron won the Fifth, Trevor Atkinson took out the 13 and Ben Golding won the 17. Mary Winser took out the ladies’ comp with 35 Points. Next week is Blackwood/Loxton/Millicent tri-challenge and Loxton and there will be a stableford comp at the club for the members not making the big trip to Loxton.

Viv Bennison who is close to the inform golfer of the club at the present time took honours in the Thursday comp played on the 30 of May 2019 with a very good 39 points, winning this from veteran Bob Childs on 38 points and Andy Varcoe had to settle for third only with 36 points. Graham warren took out the nearest to the pin on the fifth and Terry Chant had a birdie on this whole as well. Bob Childs was declared the front nine winner with 20 points.
