Golfers at Stanthorpe played a stroke round on Saturday 18 May, the day also being the second round of four for the club championships. Appreciation to Lisa and David Stuart who sponsored the day and also for presenting the winners with their prizes.

One stand out score in the men’s event came from Jarrod Irwin who returned a nett 69 and was the winner of the day. Playing off a handicap of 10, his 79 for the round was only seven over the course par. His scores of recent have been very consistent and it was a well deserved win.

Three players contested the runner up prize, all returning nett 71. In the end, the count back was in favour of Matt Waterworth leaving Rino Piovesan and Trevor Wren to be rewarded in the run down.

Men’s NTP’s were claimed by Rino Piovesan at 3, Barry Jones at 12 and Matt Waterworth at 17. Approaches, best second shots to the pin, were won by Mick O’Brien at 1/10, Mike McAuliffe at 5/14 and Ric Goodrich at 9/18.

The ladies’ event winner was Helen Jones who returned a nett 77 for the round, just holding out Lisa Stuart who had the same score. As Lisa was the sponsor for the day, she decided to take herself out of the top prize category and settled for the run down. As a result, Nikki Waterworth took runner up prize with a returned score of nett 78. Also in the run down was Mei Bell with a nett 79.

Neta Thouard collected two of the ladies’ NTP’s, at hole 3 and hole 12, Lisa Stuart held the other at 17. Approaches for the ladies went to Lorraine Evans at 2/11 and Linda Kelly at 7/16.

The club championships continue and will conclude next weekend with play on both Saturday for the third round and Sunday for the fourth and final round. Players should note that it is self nominations for Saturday but expect to be seeded for the final round.

A quick check of scores after two rounds of the championships sees Matt Burgess still leading by the smallest of margins, one shot only, so A grade could be very close. B grade leader is Barry Jones and his consistent scoring should be a big advantage. A couple of near scores could cause some difficulty. In C grade, it would appear that Rod Paye has a good hold on the trophy, but again there are a couple of players hot on his tail.

The ladies’ section of the championships is also a close contest. In first div. Lisa Stuart is progressing steadily, second div. looks like Neta Thouard could hold the others out and in third div. a single stroke separates the front runners of Lorraine Evans and Linda Kelly.

Saturday 25 May is the third round for the championships and this day is sponsored by Chris Fittock Plumbing and Gas. Sunday 26 May is the final round and sponsors for the stroke event are Alan Kerr and Dale Minchenton.

The club championships are once again being sponsored by Greg and Maria Carey and by the end of play on Sunday, the championship winners in all grades and divisions will be finalised. Best of luck to all the contenders.

Stanthorpe Sporters golf

By far the coolest morning for some time, some saying it got to 0 degrees early in the day, didn’t deter those who turned out for the nine hole Sporters golf competition on Sunday 19 May. We welcomed back Dick Hilton after several Sunday’s absent, so the starters box was again well organised.

A fairly heavy dew on the fairways stopped a lot of run for the golfers making distance difficult. The back nine was in play for the day. John Rawlings used his handicap to good effect and his nett 31 was good enough to win the day.

Ivan Juriss nailed the rest of the prizes as he collected the pin shot at 17 and would have also collected the best gross score on the day 41 for the round.

Sporters will be on again next Sunday 26 May and tee off again at 8.00 am and players are requested to be on time as the club championships will be following later in the morning.
