Local golfers hit good form

LAST Saturday’s event saw golfers battling it out for the spoils in two divisions. In the near perfect golfing conditions some excellent scores were returned.

A division came down to a two way countback between Ken Wilkins and Glenn Horgan.

In his first weekend game back for some time Glenn was unlucky to lose the countback on a very good score of 66 nett, Ken’s 34 nett on the back nine edging out Glenn’s 35.

Paul Dixon and the ever consistent Don Griggs both played solid golf to return 68 nett. Wayne Hastie with 73 gross was the best off-the-stick score for the day.

Playing his first game back after a period of illness, Nev Gilchrist proved he still has it, winning B division by three shots on 67 nett. Next best on 70 nett were Brian Campbell who has been playing good, consistent golf in recent times and the unlucky Ross Plowman who slipped into third place courtesy of a countback. Not far behind on 71 were Greg Gooding and Graeme Williams.

Ball rundown: 68 – P Dixon, D Griggs; 69 – K Frampton; 70 – R Plowman, W Hastie; 71 – P Chatman, K Pronger, D Macfarlane, G Gooding, G Williams; 72 – C Reynolds. NTPs on the day: 3 – R Plowman, 6 – N Gilchrist, 16 – E King, 17 – B Campbell.

Players are reminded to check their handicaps. Playing off a handicap higher than your actual handicap can lead to disqualification.

This Saturday is a single stableford event, and Sunday is the Pacific Golf Challenge.

With more than a thousand dollars in prizes and bonuses, this is an event not to be missed.

Nomination forms at the club house. Major prize draw includes a Mitsubishi Lancer ES.
