The Apple & Grape Harvest Festival golf events were completed on Friday 1 March with the playing of the 2 person ambrose at Stanthorpe. A good field for the day and some good scores returned. Sponsor for the day was again Crisps Coaches and we thank them for their continued involvement for all the days. Great to see not only local players in the field but a number of visitors also playing in the day.

A shot gun start at the commencement of play with all teams hopeful of a good result. In the end, the team of B. Jones and M. Bryson (Caboolture GC) took the honours. They returned a score of gross 68, four below the course par, and their small handicap was enough for them to secure the win.

Visiting players from Bribie Island courses were in the winners section with J. Heffernam and S, Langham taking runner up. This team had the lowest gross score of 67 off the stick but a smaller handicap was not helpful for their final nett result being 2 shots back from the winners.

First team to feature in the run down were also from Bribie Island with K. Robertson and J. Liddell being successful. With an extended run down on offer for the day, a number of teams left with a voucher for their effort on the day.

Pin shots were also on offer for the day for both men and ladies. J. Fraser had the closest at hole 3, Aaron Simmers held on at No. 12 and Richie Reardon collected for his tee shot at 17. The ladies pin shots were claimed by Lorraine Evans at No. 12 and Neta Thouard collected at No. 17.

The presentation was held at the end of competition and a good crowd was in attendance for this. Appreciation to Glen Turnbull for representing the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival and presenting the prizes on behalf of the sponsor, Crisps Coaches.

The day ran very smoothly, thanks to the work done by a number of people. There were quite a few of them including club captain, Brad Silver and his helpers, Trevor and Tom who kept the players well fed, president Len and bar workers as well others who helped out in some way. Special mention to our greenkeeper, Bill, for again having the course and greens in such good shape for all the golf. The one comment from many of the visitors to the course is how good the greens are.

There was not a competition on Saturday 2 March, most were golf tired by then. Instead, it was off to the town for the Apple & Grape Harvest Festival and the main parade for the day. Lucky the fireworks just managed to beat the storm on the day.

For Stanthorpe golfers, Saturday 9 March is the next competition which is the March monthly medal stroke and putting and also the first of three rounds for the Pike Trophy. Sponsor for the medal event is Beckett’s Pest Control, thanks to Tod Beckett. Time sheet for bookings are on-line.
