Being the first Saturday of February, Stanthorpe golfers played their monthly medal and putting competition, the day sponsored by Wes Smith Building and the club thanks Wes for the day.
The men’s winning score was a nett 70 returned by two players so the count back was used to give the honour to Santo Cavallaro over Mark Baker who settled for runner up. Both players had good front nines and the back nine made the difference in the end.
Scott Constable had the best gross round for the men, 73 off the stick for the round. The day’s sponsor, Wes Smith, showed his putting ability by sharing least number of putts for the round with Ivan Juriss, both needing 27 putts.
The ladies event was won by Fiona Kelly who played a very steady round of golf to return a score of nett 72 which was three clear of runner up, Margie Locke on nett 75. Lisa Stuart managed to have the lowest gross score for the ladies a swell as least number of putts, 92 for the round and 30 putts on the day.
The men’s pin shots were claimed by Rino Piovesan at 3 and Nathan Stibbard at 12. Surprisingly, the pin at 17 was not won. Ladies pins went to Margie Locke at 3, Fiona Kelly at 12 and Lisa Stuart at 17. Pro-pins were won by Brad Silver at 1/10, Rino Piovesan at 5/14 and Aaron Simmers at 9/18. No takers for the birdies nest at 17.
In the run down, scores of nett 74 and better for the men and nett 79 and better for the ladies were rewarded.
