Stanthorpe golfers played a stableford event on Saturday 17 February, the day sponsored by local travel agency, HelloWorld and we thank them for the day. A good field of local players and a number of visitors turned out for the day’s competition. Among the local players, a welcome back to Tom Page who has not been seen too often of late, good to see he found his UBD Gregory’s to show the road to the course.

The men’s event was closely contested and a good score of 41 points from club captain, Brad Silver, was the winning score. Brad’s form had been a bit up and down of late and this was one of his better results. A very good front nine set up the win and enough done on the back nine to secure the victory.

Runner up went to Richard Reardon who was one point back on 40 points. His round was almost opposite the winner, with the front nine being a few shots over, but a good second nine brought him back into contention. Minor placings in the field went to Brendan McMillan and Darrell Boekholt, both players again being one point further back on 39 points.

The ladies’ event was won by Lynette Ludlow who was well ahead in the ladies’ field on 36 points. Her round was fairly even for the two nines with no particular bad holes recorded. In second place was Filomena Silver (who didn’t want to see Brad have all the glory) on 29 points. She just managed to hold out the others with Kay Webb and Linda Kelly both returning 28 points for the run down.

Hamish Adam demonstrated his skill by winning the pin shot at 12 as well as collecting for best approach at holes 1/10 and 9/18. Other men’s pin shots claimed by Alex Smithers at 3 and Todd Sutherland at 17. The remaining pro-pin went to vice-captain Greg Fraser who had best approach at 5/14.

Ladies’ pins and pro-pins results were led by Linda Kelly who had best approach at 2/11 as well as NTP at hole 12 and hole 17. Remaining pin shot was won by Filomena Silver at 3 and the day’s ladies’ winner, Lynette Ludlow, collected the remaining pro-pin at 7/16.

Stanthorpe Sporters golf

Stanthorpe Sporters golfers played the back nine last Sunday 18 February. Joining the local players from Stanthorpe for the day were a number of Sporters golfers from Warwick who joined in the day’s play. The local competition was a stroke event and the visitors continued the day by playing an ambrose for the final 9 holes. Pleasing that a number of locals also joined in with the visitors for the 9 hole ambrose event.

Local winner of the stroke event was Brad Silver, continuing his good form from Saturday, his score of nett 22 was well ahead of the rest. Stew Rayner was not far off and his nett 25 secured runner up spot. Completing the prize list was Ivan Juriss by collecting the run down prize as well as the best gross score for the day.

The day’s play was completed with players enjoying a BBQ lunch, thanks to the effort put in by master cooks, Len Leigh and Viv Thouard. They did a great job on the hot plate.

An upcoming Sporter’s event is the Maureen Bates Memorial event which is scheduled for Sunday 17 March. The comp will be a 2 person ambrose played over 9 holes. Golf, raffle and snacks is the usual format of the day. A time sheet for the day will be available at the club. Hopefully a good field will turn out for this day which has proved to be quite popular in previous years.

 Sporters will be on again next Sunday 25 February with tee off at 8.00 am and the front nine will be in play,
