Last Saturday’s stableford event was won by Stephen Kay after he returned a score of 44 points for the round and was 7 points clear of the rest of the field. His front nine included 8 pars and one bogie for 21 points. The back nine included an eagle at the 11th and birdies at 13 and 14. Even with a few mishits at the last two holes, his back nine produced 23 points for the winning round.
Runner up went to Ron Batterham with 37 points which on most days could have been a winning score. Brand new set of wheels may have inspired Ron, very steady 20 points out and 17 for the back nine. Run down went to Matt Waterworth, Rino Piovesan and Nathan Stibbard, all with 36 points.
The ladies event was won by Nikki Waterworth with 36 points. Nikki’s back nine was slightly better than her front nine, 17 points out and 19 home. Her score could have been even better except for a few lapses on both nines.
Shaneen McLellan had one of her better rounds, recording 32 points to secure runner up. Shaneen started slowly, recording a one pointer at the first hole. This was offset with three 3’s and a four pointer on the next 5 holes for 18 points on the front nine. Another 14 points scored on the back nine, just enough to hold off the rest of the field.
The ladies run down went to Tric Fittock (30), Margie Locke (28) and Lyn Ludlow (28).
