Golfers at Stanthorpe played a stroke event on Saturday 15 July, an afternoon that was perfect for players, sun was shining, very little breeze and the course was in great shape. Thanks to the greenkeeper, Bill Pyne, for sponsoring the day and presenting the course in such good condition.

Both Ray Thorn and Keith Jones had a good round with a nett 71 for the count back to come into play. By a small margin, Ray Thorn edged out Keith Jones who settled for runner up. This is the first competition win for Thorn, now that he is in retirement mode, intending to improve his golf game and starting off with good effect.

Ladies’ winner went to Lorraine Evans with a score of nett 70. Her front nine was indeed quite good but a much better back nine ensured the win. Runner up went to Lynette Ludlow, several shots back on nett 73.

Ladies’ pin shots went to the leading pair. Lorraine taking the pin at 17 and Lynette doing the same at 12. Men’s pin shots were claimed by Andrew Burgess at 3, Matt Waterworth at 12 and Len Leigh played a good tee shot with driver to claim 17. Pro-pins went to Jason Bacon at 1/10, Matt Burgess at 5/14 and Mark Hendry, another special at 9/18. All pin and pro-pin winners claimed a number on the 300 club board, courtesy of Bill. Birdies’ nest was on hole 1 and the one birdie recorded was from Scott Constable who is reported to have hit a very good putt for the birdie.

In the run down, a ball each to Alan Kerr, Max Hunter, Brad Silver, Santo Cavallaro and Linda Kelly for the ladies.

The Zone 1 championships were held at Stanthorpe on Sunday 16 July with players from Inglewood, Texas, Warwick and Stanthorpe vying for bragging rights.

Also in attendance were Col Hoey and Jim Miller representing the Darling Downs Assn committee. Best score of the day from Rhys Farrell from Warwick, winner of the ‘A’ grade event. Nett honours went to Nathan Stibbard of Stanthotpr and runner up to John Morpuss from Inglewood. ‘B’ grade won by Shane Charle from Inglewood. Nett winner to Chtis Binge of Stanthorpe and John Slack from Inglewood for tunner up. ‘C’ grade gross to Graeme Shepherd of Inglewood, nett to Angelo Maugeri of Stanthorpe and Paul ward runner from Texas.

Best team score was posted by the Warwick team of McLennan, Landrigan, Farrell and Bowles who crept over the line by one shot.

The Hellow Yellow Charity Golf Day to be held on the course on Sunday 27 August has already drawn some interest. The event is a 3 person ambrose and open to both members and social players. There is no need to have an AGU handicap, one will be supplied on the day. Cost for the day is $90 per team, or $30 per player which includes a steak burger for lunch. Breakfast will also be available at the club from 8.00 am. Major prizes are for Overall Winners, overall runners up and also mixed team winner and runner up. Extra prize for the team which makes up the best ‘NAME” for their team. Nominations for the day should be sent to the club.

Next Saturday, July 22, a single stableford event is on the programme and sponsored by Scott Constable. Last year, Scott put up a great prize for a putting competition on his day, a lot tried but no takers, and this year, Scott will sponsor a pair of men’s and ladies golf shoes for 4 three pointers on the final four holes of the round. Sounds easy, doesn’t it. Time sheet for the day is at the club.
