Stanthorpe golfers played a stableford event last Saturday, the day sponsored by Wilshire & Co, courtesy of Todd Wilshire and the club thanks him for the prizes on the day. Some rain over the previous days ensured the greens and fairways would still be very damp making for difficult conditions.
Three players managed to record 34 points for the best score of the day and so the count back was in action to find a winner, that going to junior golfer, Hamish Adam. Hamish has only recently joined the club and earned his AGU handicap and great to see he has recorded his first victory and a start to lowering the handicap. The other players on 34 points were Matt Waterworth for runner up and David Burgess settling for the run down.
The ladies event resulted in a win to Linda Kelly with the best score of 32 points. Lisa Stuart collected runner up and Marie Cook featured in the run down.
Pin shot winners were well spread for the day, no double ups at all. In the men’s, David Burgess collected at 3, Kev Rowling at 12 and Alan Kerr at 17. For the ladies, Nikki Waterworth held the pin at 12 and Lisa Stuart best at 17.
The pro-pin at 5/14 was claimed by Matt Waterworth after he scored with an eagle on the fifth hole, second shot from the fairway and holed out. Kev Rowling claimed 9/18 but was a more usual way, just getting close for the second shot. Unfortunately, the pro-pin at 1/10 was not awarded as no one was able to decipher the winners name on the card. Players are asked to be clear when recording names on pin cards.
Others to feature in the run down were Lyle Bryant and Aaron Simmers, both with 33 points.
All players are reminded of the Open carnival which is very quickly approaching, Time sheets for the two days are in the clubhouse, and quite a few nominations to date.
Next Saturday is an individual stableford and our sponsor for the day is Dep’s Beautiful Nails. The time sheet for the day is on the board at the club.
