It was monthly medal time again at Stanthorpe golf last Saturday, a single stroke event. In conjunction with the medal event, play was also for the Dale Mullins memorial trophy. The club thanks the sponsors of both events, Michael O’Brien for the monthly medal and Michael Thompson for again sponsoring the Dale Mullins trophy.
Club members were pleased to welcome a visiting golfer, Hannah Reeves, now a member of the Brisbane Golf Club. Hannah started her golf as a junior at Stanthorpe and showed a lot of promise, not long before she beating everyone else. Her progress through the ranks now sees her as a very accomplished golfer playing off a handicap of -2 and is among the best ladies golfers in the state. It was very pleasing to see her back at Stanthorpe for the day.
The Dale Mullins memorial trophy winners for the year are Dave Burgess in the men’s division and Hannah Reeves for the ladies. David had to wait for a count back after a tie with Scott Constable, both players on 80. Hannah had a very good win and showed she had not forgotten too much about the course at Stanthorpe. Her score was 74 which was one over par for the ladies card.
The men’s medal winner was Brad Silver, his first competition win since joining the club, with a score of nett 69 and three clear of the field. Barry Hughes secured runner up after a count back with Max Hunter, both on nett 72. The ladies medal winner was Margie Locke and she also needed the count back to go in her favour after a tie with Mei Bell, both players on nett 79. Mei settled for runner up.
Putting honours went to the day’s sponsor, Michael O’Brien, who needed only 22 putts for the round. Lyn Ludlow was best for the ladies with 29 putts.
Hannah Reeves did well in the minor events, winning two of the ladies pin shots, 12 and 17. She also beat the field at the pro-pins at 1/10 and 5/14. Mark Hendry kept his hold on the remaining pro-pin a 9/18.
Featuring in the run down were Max Hunter, Mick O’Brien, Angelo Maugeri and Lisa Stuart.
Next Saturday is an individual stroke, sponsor for the day is our greenkeeper, Bill Pyne. He might have something special in mind for the players. Tee off from 11.30 am and the time sheet is on the board at the club.
