Stanthorpe golfers played a single stableford on Saturday 18 February, the day sponsored by Hello World in Stanthorpe and the club thanks them for continuing their sponsorship at the club.
A good field and a few visitors set out for the competition with an early score of 39 points already returned by Ron Batterham. Ron, who spent quite a few years being the official starter at the club, has found his golf improving since retiring from the role, obviously less stress. His score held on through the day and was the winning score. A few 38 points also returned and the countback was needed to find a runner up which went to Eric Ree. Others on 38 settled for the run down.
The ladies event was won by Helen Jones whose game appears to be improving all the time since undergoing some surgical work some months ago. Her 38 points for the round eged out Lisa Stuart on 36 points, good enough for ladies’ runner up.
Nearest the pins at the par 3 holes went to Brendan McMillan, Hamish Adam, David Hunter (Tenterfield), Helen Jones, Lisa Stuart and Christine Hood. Matt Burgess had best second shot at 1/10, David Lang at 5/14 and Scott Constable at 9/18. The birdies nest at hole 1 was again not won.
In the run down, a ball to scores of 36 and better for the men and 34 and better for the ladies.
Next Saturday, 25 February will be the last Saturday in the month so a shot gun start at 12 noon for a 2 Ball Ambrose, a fund raising day for the Glen Aplin State School. The day is open to all and no need to have an official handicap. One will be sorted for all players. Already have heard of some ex- students, old boys of the school who intend playing. The nomination sheet for the day is at the club so get a playing partner arranged and turn out for a fun day. Clubs and hire buggies are available at the club, but get in early if needed.
