Stanthorpe golfers had a more relaxed day on the course for the final Saturday competition of May, a medley 4BBB stableford event. With the club championships now complete, the 4Ball was a much less intense event. The day was sponsored by club members, Lisa and David Stuart and we thank them for the day.
After an early morning frost, the day turned out to be mild and sunny, although it got rather cool towards the end of the afternoon which prompted some players to suggest that maybe 11.30 am could be a better time to start in the winter months.
Barry Jones had a very good round, bounced back well from the championships, and he and his playing partner, Tod Beckett, returned a winning score of 47 points to win the day.
In second place was the team of Brad Silver and Filomena Silver with 45 points. Filomena, who has recently come into competition golf, had some very good scores, adding 26 points to their total.
Men’s pin shots were won by Darryl Boekholt at 3, Chris Binge at 12 and Barry Jones at 17. No takers for the ladies’ 3rd and Lisa Stuart took the rest at 12 and 17. Jamie Stuart (visitor) held the pro-pin at 1/10, Barry Jones (again) held 5/14 and Brendan McMillan collected at 9/18.
Gary Kirby was well pleased with his round, especially at the par 5, 11th hole. Two good hits up the fairway and on to the green, very close to the pin. Nailed the putt for the eagle and five points added to the score. Be great if it was that easy all the time.
Next Saturday could be a bit more intense with the June monthly medal and putting competition being played. Sponsor for the day is Andersens of Stanthorpe, courtesy of eagle man, Gary Kirby. Time sheet for the day is on the board at the club and tee off from 11.30 am for the afternoon session.
