Golfers at Stanthorpe played a stableford event on Saturday 15 June with the Finch Cup on offer as a bonus to the winner. Appreciation to Eric and Shaneen McLellan who were sponsors for the day. The weather on the day was quite pleasant, a bit cool but no terrible breeze for most of the round. The trial of having two tees to start worked well and hopefully it will remain in place.

Ivan Juriss had one of his better rounds returning a score of 37, winning the day and now this year’s holder of the Finch Cup. His round showed steady scoring at each hole and included three birdies which was a great help to his score. A few players were one shot away on 36 points with the count back going in favour of Greg Carey. Also on 36 points were Ron Batterham and Scott Constable who featured in the run down.

The ladies’ event resulted in a tie for first place with both Lyn Ludlow and Maria Carey returning 37 points. The count back again in place to find a winner, this time Lyn Ludlow being the lucky one to take the honour and add her name to the ladies’ Finch Cup. Maria collecting runner up. Down the line honours went to Mei Bell and Kay Webb.

Men’s pin shots went Greg Carey at 3 and Andrew Burgess at 12. Didn’t appear to be any takers for the pin shot at 17. Pro-pins were won by Alan Walker at 9/18 and Andrew Burgess at 5/14.

Helen Jones collected for her approach at 2/11 and pin shot at 12. Linda kelly had best approach at 2/11 and Lisa Stuart collected for pin shots at 3 and 17.

The course was in very good condition except for the suspected night raiders, feral pigs, making a mess of the fairway at the top of the course. All players really enjoyed the pin positions and some likened them to the Pinehurst No. 2 course. Players had to leave their approaches in the right place to avoid in some cases, putting off the green.

Most members should be aware of the Zone 1 carnival which this year is being played at Inglewood GC on Sunday July 14, the club has sent an email to members for this. Although the day is an open event, the gross winner of the event must be a member of a Zone 1 club which includes Stanthorpe GC.

Next Saturday 22 June is a stroke event and the day is sponsored by Peter Patti Painting. The time sheet as always is available on line so book early to get your favoured tee off place.

Stanthorpe Sporters Golf

Stanthorpe Sporters golfers played the back nine on Sunday 16 June and it great to see some new players in the event as well as some returning players who have been out injured for some time. A welcome then to Brett Morgan and Peter Morgan playing their first game of Sporters golf. A bright sunny morning was on hand for the 8.00 am tee off.

Best score in for the day came from Ivan Juriss, making it two wins for the weekend. Ivan had a score of 42 and a nett 31 to claim the win. Dick Hilton and John Rawlings also returned nett 31, the cut of the cards going in favour of Ivan first, Dick second to claim runner up prize and John in third place for the run down.

Best gross of the day was from Paul Armstrong, always consitent, 42 for the round.

Being the back nine in play, there were two pin shots on offer. The last few weeks hasn’t been too many winners but both NTP’s were won. At 12, Gary Kirby had the best tee shot but apparently didn’t putt too well on the hole. Stewart Rayner held the green at 17 to win the ball on offer, although there was some suggestion of collusion among players which was not investigated.

Stanthorpe Sporters are on again next Sunday 23 June with the front nine to be in play. All are indeed welcome to come and participate, turn up at the course ready for an 8.00 am tee off.
