Geary, Sutton team too good

THE tried and tested team of Alwyn Geary and Doug Sutton was once again too good for the rest of the field in last Wednesday’s two person Ambrose stroke event.

Geary and Sutton have had several wins through the year in both Ambrose and 4BBB events and their teaming once again proved to be the winning combination when they carded an excellent 58 strokes which was well clear of their nearest rivals, Allen Cassells and Brian Taylor.

Members are thrilled with the condition of the course overall but several expressed some misgivings about the quality of the greens which have recently undergone renovation.

“The fairways are really great and the bunkers are probably in the best condition for sometime but understandably it’ll take a bit more time for the greens to reach their peak,” was the view of one member.

Ball rundown to 66: Jeff Mason, Con Meares, Vince Andrews, Doug Cunningham, Clive Eaton, Ray Rigbye, Gerry Entwistle, Ray Dunkley, Lester Pettit, Don Griggs, Joe Simaile, Nev Haack, Larry Parshall, John Parkinson, Col Smith, Barry Allen, Graeme Major, John Kenny, Rod Emmerson, Perry Pyke, Gavin Burls, Lindsay Taylor.

Hole 16 accuracy shot: Rod Walker, Doug Sutton, Ray Lindsey, Don Griggs.

Meanwhile Gympie Vets Captain Brian Taylor is urging members to roll up in force for next Wednesday’s Annual General meeting which will elect new office bearers for the coming year.

“It’s really important we get strong representation because the meeting will afford members the opportunity to have their say about the running and operation of their club,” Taylor said.

The meeting starts at 9.30am followed by lunch and a single Stableford competition.

Taylor also reminded members about the annual Christmas Party which will be held on Friday December 3rd and will cost members and their partners $25.

In other club news, Gympie Vets will host Maryborough on Tuesday December 7th and the annual John Madill Challenge against Tewantin-Noosa will be played at Noosa Springs on Thursday December 16th.

Bus transport is available for the Noosa Springs trip and all up cost for the day is $60.
