Simon Hogan scored 41 points to win Saturday’s A grade stableford event on countback from Carlos Gomez.
In B grade Warren Bull scored 38 to win by a shot from Gayle Beckton, while C grade went to Tim Nolan with 40 on countback from Steve Phillips who had a welcome return to form after his enforced break.
On Wednesday Barry Barlow had an impressive 42 points to win A grade by four shots from Phil Hodgkinson, and in B grade Tony Tonta had an even more impressive 44, winning from Paul ‘Tango’ McMillan on 42. A special mention to Wayne Jamieson, who is back on the course after his battle with illness and did a great job to feature in the ball comp.
Last Thursday Marg Radeski had 42 points to win the ladies stableford event from Lorraine Kemp with 42.
On Sunday the club said thank you to the volunteers and staff with a Christmas function, followed by the annual presentations. Unfortunately due to the inclement weather the nine hole comp was cancelled.
The contribution of volunteers and staff that was recognised on Sunday was again highlighted at the annual general meeting on Tuesday night. Their efforts have put the club back on a sound footing and the strongest position it has been in from a financial, social and golfing perspective for many years.
A full report on the AGM will be in next Tuesday’s PT.
In the clubhouse, the Joker’s Wild is soaring up into very winnable territory, and with not too many cards left on the board it is almost certain to go off soon, possibly before Christmas. What a great present!
Why not get down to the club tonight for your chance to win $5,500. As a Christmas bonus, the ham and turkey raffle starts tonight (replacing the normal meat trays). Why buy your Christmas lunch when you can win it at the golf club? Meals are also available, with bookings preferred.
Tomorrow is the Brunker Fabrications Monthly Medal and next Saturday is team stableford with best three scores to count. Why not take the chance to get in a couple of games before Christmas.
