From the Bunker


6 JULY 2019

Great Work Gianni

With the Champions being crowned from the Club and Grade champs it was Club golf back in action again. Thursday’ stableford comp attracted a excellent field of 24 players, which was played in fine conditions. The eventual winner of the competition was Alan Schultz on 42 points from Mike McRostie on 39 points and Doug Robbins on 38. Alan Schultz also won the best score on the front nine with 23 points. It was good to see fisherman Jamie Hale back out at the club and he won the nearest to the pin on the fifth. Mike McRostie and Jamie Allen had birdies on the 13th as well.

Saturday’s Monthly Medal round was played in very pleasant conditions with some members even choosing to wear the shorts and T-Shirt they must have their seasons mixed up. 35 Players took cards out in this competition with two ladies taking part of the Saturday Ladies Stableford. The Monthly medalist for July was new member Gianni Giuranstante who with a superb net 67. I am sure this is Gianni’s first time he has won a competition since taking out membership at the Millicent Golf Club, well done Gianni keep the good work up. This score was more then enough to clinch the B Grade best score as well with Peter Burchard getting second with a net 73. The A Grade comp was hotly contested with Owen Merrett taking it out with a net 73 from Alan Schultz with a net 74. The Ball rundown was won by Geoff Cameron net 74, Scott Lonergan net 74 and Paul Whitford net 75. The nearest to pin on the 3rd was collected by Greg Cook, Terry Chant claimed the fifth, Andy Varcoe fired in a arrow on the 13th to claim it and Martin Cameron took out the 17 with an impressive shot. Birdies went the way of Andy Varcoe on the 3rd and 13th, Alan Schultz, Greg Cook and Geoff Cameron all having birdies on the fifth. The clubs most infamous putter in Mark Pilmore had a great day with the flat stick to take out the putting comp with 26 putts. If anyone see’s Brian Duldig can you, please put the coordinates to the Golf Club in his car’s GPS as he might have trouble finding his way-out next time he plays. Next Saturday’s competition is a Stableford and we have the Stock Agents/Farmers day on August 2nd, 2019 and volunteers are needed for this event.
