Golfers at Stanthorpe were able to return to the fairways last Saturday, luckily no rain in the previous days to flood the course. Instead there was a very brisk breeze which kept the temperature down and a very cold competition followed.
The event was the June monthly medal and putting and sponsor for the day was Go Vita of Stanthorpe, the third attempt to hold their day. Appreciation to Go Vita and John Bylicki for holding out so long for the day and to John for being available at the presentation.
The winner of the June men’s medal was Aaron Simmers with a score of nett 74 on the day. A close finish with Barry Jones, also on nett 74, the countback giving the win to Simmers on a very close margin. Jones settled for runner up.
Lisa Stuart remains in the ladies’ winners circle, collecting that medal with a nett 73. Close behind for runner up was lyn Ludlow with nett 75.
Best gross scores were from Scott Constable with 78 for the men and Lisa Stuart with 89 for the ladies. Mark Hendry put on a putting clinic needing only 25 for the round. Least putts for the ladies came from Lyn Ludlow with 30 for the round.
Men’s pin shots went to Greg Fraser at 3 and Ivan Juriss at 12. Lisa Stuart collected both 12 and 17 second shots for the ladies. Nathan Stibbard managed two pro-pins, 1/10 and 9/18 with Ivan Juriss held the other at 5/14.
The run down went to nett 75 and better for the men and nett 84 for the ladies. The birdies nest at 2 was not collected.
Hopefully the weather will still be on the improve during the coming week and the course continues to dry out further. The cold conditions are much preferable to wet conditions.
Next Saturday will be an individual stableford and the Finch Cup will also be on offer on the day. Sponsor for the day is the Eric and Shaneen McLellan. The time sheet is on the board at the club.
