Stanthorpe golfers played their monthly medal on Saturday 9 March, the day sponsored by Beckett’s Pest Control, courtesy of Tod Beckett. A good field turned out for the day which was a complete contrast to previous Saturdays, this one being gusty winds and rather cold and a bit wet.

The men’s event saw the sponsor of the day, Tod Beckett, take the honours for the day with a nett 68 and so qualifies for the Medal of Medallists later in the year. Tod passed the prizes down the list and lucky for Richard Reardon to collect the winner’s prize with nett 71. Both players had steady rounds and were able to overcome the wind and rain for good rounds.

Best gross score for the men’s event was 74 of the stick with Scott Constable and Hamish Adam both returning that score. Best putting for the men came from Hamish Adam needing only 24 putts for the round. Others to feature in the run down were Len Leigh (nett 72), Hamish Adam (nett 72), Keith Jones (nett 73) and Scott Constable (nett 73).

The ladies’ event was won by Lisa Stuart with a nett 76 which was two ahead of Nikki Waterworth in second place on nett 78. In the run down, Lorraine Evans (80) and Racheal Hendry (84) collected a voucher for their effort. The ladies nett winner, Lisa Stuart also collected for having the best gross score of 90 on the day.

Pro-pins for the men were collected by Hamish Adam at 1/10, Matt Burgess at 5/14 and David Burgess at 9/18. NTP’s went to Keith Jones for his tee shot at 3 and Scott Constable for his tee shot at 17. Favourable mention to Hamish Adam, for another great effort after he recorded an eagle at the par 5 eleventh hole.

Racheal Hendry held the ladies approach at 7/16 as well as collecting NTP at the twelfth hole. Two remaing NTP’s both taken by the ladies winner of the day. Lisa Stuart.

The day was also the first of three rounds played for the Pike Trophy. In this event, the best two rounds of the three will count for the final result, so for players who didn’t have such a good round, still plenty of hope.

Next Sunday 17 March, Sporters golf have the Maureen Bates Memorial 2 ball ambrose 9 hole event which is sponsored by Rex Bates. The time sheet for the day is on the board at the club and all players are welcome to play.

Saturday 16 March is a stroke event and the second round for the Pike Trophy, the day is being sponsored by Steve and Sandy Kay. Again, time sheet is available on line.

Sporters golfers

A small number for Sporters golfers on Sunday 10 March, perhaps the wind and possibility of a wet day kept some away. Those who did turn out were eager and keen to start.

Best score of the day came from Mark Lynam on nett 25 which was well in front of the rest. Mark’s round was a bit patchy to start but improved as he warmed up to the conditions of the day. His last four holes was played with only 2 over par and that secured the win.

Runner up went to Aaron Simmers who was three shots back on nett 28. Like the winner, his last four holes were good but a tricky start of a few too many over par didn’t help.

Terry Byrnes was also in the prize winners section, his nett 29 giving him the run down. Only one pin shot was collected on the day and that was from Paul Armstrong at seventeen.

Lowest gross score for the day was from Matt Burgess. His score of 38 off the stick was best for the day, managing to par every hole until the last two, both one over. Still a very good nine holes of golf.

Sporters golf next Sunday 17 March is the Maureen Bates Memorial 2 person ambrose and the day is again sponsored by Rex Bates. The day is open to all players, players without an AGU handicap will be accommodated. Time sheet for the day is on the board at the club.
