The M & D Auto Parts golf day was on at Stanthorpe last Saturday, the event being a 2 person ambrose. Again, with M & D Auto being the sponsor of the day, a good field turned out for the day and the club is thankful to Judy Spiller and Mick Spiller and their suppliers for again putting on the day. Each player who played on the day was presented with a gift bag with some edssentials inside for the day’s play.
With plenty of prizes on offer, the top prize went to the father son team of Greg and Jacob Steele who scrapped in by a half shot from Brendan Barker and Nigel Eldridge who collected runner up.
The ladies’ winning team was Mei Bell and Lisa Stuart who had a slightly larger lead over runner up team of Marie Cook and Lorraine Evans.
Plenty of run downs on offer as well with teams Barry Jones and David Burgess, Keith Jones and Mark Hendry, Margie Locke and Christine Hood and Helen Jones and Racheal Hendry all taking home a prize.
A number of individual holes were sponsored by M & D. The men’s 3rd hole went to Hamish Adam and the ladies collected by Nikki Waterworth. Len Leigh was successful at 17 as was the ladies team of Lorraine Evans and Marie Cook. Second shot approaches at No. 8 were won by Mark Hendry and Keith Jones in the men’s division and by Racheal Hendry and Helen Jones for the ladies. The men’s long drive was convincingly won by Nathan Stibbard and Racheal Hendry likewise for the ladies.
The special prize for the NAGA went to Harry and Kyle with no contest. No mention of their score will be made or divulged.
As has been their custom previously, M & D Auto Parts also sponsored a multi draw raffle at the end of the day and Victor is thanked for his input into this. There were plenty of prizes on offer and plenty of smiling faces at the end of the raffle.
