The September monthly medal stroke event last Saturday gave a win to Scott Constable after returning a card of 71 for a nett 70, giving him the double of best gross and best nett on the day. This was just enough to hold off four players with nett 71, the countback giving Mark Hendry the runner up prize.
Settling for a run down were Andrew Burgess (71), Ken Hinze (71), Trevor Ludlow (71), David Burgess (72), Barry Hughes (73) and Eric McLellan (73). No dispute with least number of putts, that going to Trevor Ludlow with 23 putts for the round, only ten needed on the front nine.
The ladies medal event was very competitive with some good low scores, the winner being Madeline Jarman with nett 71, just holding off Margie Locke for runner up with nett 72. Niki Waterworth had best gross score of 91 for the ladies and Helen Jones collected a run down for her nett 73. Least number of putts was from Margie Locke, 29 for the round and needing only 13 for the back nine, helped with a hole out at the 13th.
Both winners, Scott and Madeline have now qualified for the Medal of Medallists and will join with other medal winners through the year for the play off to be held in November.
Two eagles were recorded on the day, Keith Allen at the 6th hole, in for three and the other from Jason Bacon with a three at the 11th hole.
Thanks to the sponsors of the day, members Mark Baker and Fiona Kelly, who were not able to be present on the day, believed to be holidaying in a warmer northern part of the state.
A report that Ian Pickering is considering a defensive driving course after his exploits on a buggy last Friday. Apparently, the buggy had a mind of its own, wanting to go its own way in reverse out of the shed, into a wall and then quickly backwards up the fairway. Thanks to the quick thinking of Chris Fittock, the day was saved and no one was injured, although Ian was slightly edgy up after his ordeal.
Next Saturday is an individual stableford event and the time sheet is on the wall at the clubhouse. Tee off from 11.00 am.
