HYLAND HITS TOP FORM

16/11/17 – 18/11/17

The weather extremes hit the Millicent golf club last week, from the hot weather early in the week to the cold wind and torrential rain last Thursday, the rain was a god send for the golf course, but unfortunately the normal Thursday stable ford competition had to be cancelled. Saturday turned the weather on and good numbers turned out to compete in a stable ford competition and with the golf course in fantastic condition scoring was always going to be high. In the A-grade it was Paul Whitford who had a day out and with the spider putter on fire, Whitford dominated the field to win with 37 points, Mark Pilmore had to settle for second spot after losing a count back to Whitford after also finishing on 37 points, another count back was needed to decided third spot with Andrew Ferguson getting up over Andrew Varcoe after both finished with 36 points. In the B-grade it was Jim Hyland who shot the best score of the day to be too good for the rest of the field to win with an impressive 38 points, Arch Sunderland kept his good recent form going to be close behind in second spot with 37 points, while Ron Hateley had to settle for third with 35 points. In the nearest to the pin awards for the day Ferguson won the 3rd, Ben Young hit the 5th and 17th green while Hyland capped off a good day out to win the 13th green, Hyland made his birdie putt to claim 3 golf balls along with Terry Chant who had to only other birdie for the day, nobody in the B-grade managed to hit the 9th green in two shots while “Spike” Warren won the second shot to the 18th green for the A-grade. As stated last week, with a long hot summer on the way, the fairways are going to be under extreme stress so could everybody please take care where they travel on the hot days with your carts and even buggies. This week we have a stable ford competition on both Thursday and Saturday.

A big thank you must go to the many volunteers who put in all the hard work on a very warm day to make it such a successful day for the golf club. Last Thursday saw a small group head out to compete in a stable ford competition, played in fine warm conditions it was Philip Hunter who jumped out of the blocks early winning the front 9 hole competition with 19 points, Terry Chant was doing all the chasing finishing in second spot with 18 points while Viv Bennison, Tony Bowering, Arch Sunderland and Bob Childs were also close behind with 17 points. On the turn for home it was Tony Bowering who held his nerve to win the 18 hole competition and the day finishing with 36 points, Sunderland had to settle for second spot finishing with 35 points while Chant and Bruce Packer tied for third with 34 points. Andy Varcoe managed to get something out of the day winning the nearest to the pin award on the par 3,5th hole. With the weather warming up last Saturday the competition was changed from a stroke round to a stable ford competition and good numbers took to the course with the IGA supermarket voucher up for grabs. In the A-grade it was Viv Bennison who had a day out winning with an impressive 38 points, Ian Greenwood and Ben Young had to settle with second and third spots after both finished with 37 points and Mark Pretty was close behind with 36 points. In the B-grade it was Brian Thomson who won the day and the IGA supermarket voucher with 38 points in a count back from Bennison, Arch Sunderland and Trevor Atkinson both finished with 37 points to finish in second and third spots while Jim Hyland had a good round with 36 points. In the trick shots Scott Packer had the only birdie on the par 3’s to bag 4 golf balls, Ben Young won the 3rd, Bennison capped off a good day to win the 5th, Thomson was much the same winning the 13th, while Terry Chant grabbed the 17th, Atkinson was closest for 2 shots on the 9th green, while “Spike” Warren was closest for 2 shots on the 18th green. Could I please remind all members with golf carts to please try and not drive on the fairways or get to close to the greens as much as possible especially with the warm weather starting thanks, this week we have a stable ford competition on both Thursday and Saturday.
