Golf at Stanthorpe last Saturday was the August monthly medal and putting competition, another chance to qualify for the Medal of Medallists later in the year. Appreciation to our sponsor for the day, Scott, Michael and Louise of Stanthorpe Newsagency for the trophies on the day.
New member to the club, Shaun Yates, recently joined up and showed that the course is suited to his game. A handy 87 off the stick for a nett 63 was a definite win. A very steady round with only one real blemish on his card, an 8 at the 13th. Shaun’s handicap has been altered.
Unlucky for Matt Waterworth who parred the course but with a much lower handicap settled for runner up with a nett 69. Matt did have the lowest gross score on the day.
Lisa Stuart continued her good form in the ladies event, returning a nett 78 and to hold out Mei Bell in a count back to take top prize. Lisa also had the lowest gross of 95 for the ladies. Mei settled into runner up.
Winners of the putting event were Angelo Maugeri with 26 putts and Nikki Waterworth with 31 putts for the round.
Pin shots were won by Craig Fossey at 3, David Burgess at 12, Brad Silver at 17 for the men and to Margie Locke at 12 and Lisa Stuart at 17 for the ladies. Pro-pins collected by Matt Waterworth at 1/10, Brendan Barker at 5/14 and Mark Hendry (again) at 9/18.
Men’s run down went to nett 74 and better and ladies to nett 79.
