Results 20 Mar 2021
Stanthorpe golfers finalised the winners of the Pike Trophy and Nuffield Cup last Saturday, a hole in one was made and David Reeves had a haircut.
The winners of the Pike Trophy, mens and ladies, were named with good rounds from the last round deciding the outcome. Rod Werner gets his name engraved on the men’s trophy for 2021 and Lisa Stuart became the ladies’ trophy winner. Congratulations to both platers.
The day’s single event for the Nuffield Cup was again sponsored by club member, Mark McCosker, and we thank Mark for continuing this event.
Pike trophy winners were also successful in the day’s single event. Rod Werner fired an 86 off the bat for a nett 67 and a convincing win. Nathan Stibbard rarely has a bad round and his nett 72 secured the men’s runner up prize. Run down went to score of nett 75 and better.
Lisa Stuart continues to make an impact in competition and her nett 76 gave her the win in the ladies stroke event. Trish Fittock also returned a nett 76 but the countback was not in her favour and she settled for runner up. Ladies’ run down went to Kay Webb and Lyn Ludlow.
Highlight of the day was provided by Ian Harvey at the 12th hole, a par 3 of 137 m in length, where he achieved the golfer’s most desired result, a hole in one. Playing a 7 wood off the tee, his ball landed on the green, rolled forward and across the green and into the hole. Ian reported it was his first hole in one in competition.
David Reeves had his locks removed last Sunday and a good crowd was on hand to witness the event. Well done to David for involving himself in the Big Shave. Funds raised by David’s action go to a worthy cause.
Three events of mention for next Saturday for members to be aware of. Sam Eaves, Warwick GC Professional, will be visiting at Stanthorpe with his mobile shop, so the opportunity is there for members to acquire any golf gear needed. Sam usually brings a good range of items, but if members require any special orders, they should contact Sam during the week for what they need and he will bring it with him.
Secondly, the official opening of the club’s new machinery shed. The shed was built with funds from a successful grant application and is a much needed addition to the club’s facilities. The opening will be done by the Southern Downs Regional Council Mayor Vic Pennisi and will take place at 11.00 am. A good roll up of members would be appreciated.
Last, next Saturday’s event is a medley 4BBB stableford, the McDonalds “Men’s Cancer Awareness Charity Day” sponsored by McDonalds of Stanthorpe. The event will commence with a shot gun start at 12.00 noon after the official opening of the machinery shed. Register by 11.30 am so the starter can organise tee positions.
