Poka’s medal win

September 08, 2017

Jimmy Poka jnr had a one over par round of 73 for a net 70 to win A grade and the Francis Kelly and Grant monthly medal on Saturday.

Newly retired Peter Beckton had net 71 to win B grade on countback from Sam Callanan, and Gail Beckton made it a family double taking out C grade with net 70, two shots clear of Susan Butcher with 72.

It has been a busy week on the course with the ladies Double Date in Deni played in trying conditions over Monday and Tuesday, and similar adverse weather for the Wednesday stableford event.

The coveted Mary Bradshaw Bowl, contested on Tuesday, was won by Faye Harrington, Felicity McCalman, Denise Hunter and Bev Purtill.

The Double Date 36 hole winners were Jenny Bauerle (handicap) from Valley View Golf Club with 74 points and Pauline Davis (scratch) with 41 points.

On Wednesday Frank Conallin charged through the intermittent showers to par the course and score 39 points, winning A grade on countback from Chris Thomson.

B grade winner was Don Alexander who scored 36, one shot clear of runner-up John Irwin.

Coming up we have a stableford event tomorrow and the Mitre 10 Deni Vets Senior Open on Monday. This is also a stableford event with 9.30am assembly for 10am shotgun start. The much anticipated Veterans Week of Golf will be held from October 8 to 13. This should be a great week - details available at the club or on the website.

In the clubhouse, one of the biggest events of the year is the Blind Footy Tipping Dinner, which is on Friday September 15 from 7pm. All participants are asked to advise June, Neil Boswell or Don Alexander if they are attending.
