Vets golf

ANOTHER good roll up.

Unfortunately some who played on the first round of the age championships could not make it this week, but there was a good field anyway.

Congratulations to all of those who were winners in their individual age groups both gross and nett.

These results can be viewed on your member's website.

There was some really close wins fitting of a championship event.

The best gross overall was Wayne Hastie's 148 and therefore the Vets club champion. Congratulations Wayne.

On the day there was the three grades of normal stroke competition and the winners were as follows,

A-grade Don Cappetti 64, runner-up John Godsall 65, third Graeme Major 67.

B-grade was won by Lex Brookes 64, runner-up Keith Johnson 65, third Brian Carroll 67 on a count back.

C-grade winner was Andrew Towning 65, runner-up Errol Ward 66 and Harry Bailey 68. As you can see by the scores there was some consistent golf.

Run down went to 71. Club pin was won by John Godsall, the dark horse Harry Bailey thought he was in with a chance once again after last week, but not to be Harry.

Gelliatrics: Hubcaps who, after rushing home to get his golf cart loaded with his and his passengers golf bags, headed to the ninth tee to hit off, only to find when he got to the green his clubs were left behind after not being tied on properly in the first place.

Thought he would get away with it but was spied by the Bandit and Kev Macklin who went out of their way screaming "That's a gelliateic”.

Ladies golf

LAST Wednesday saw a very small field.

Once again the weather took over and lady golfers stayed inside.

However there were some brave ladies who took to the field and had a dry and enjoyable game.

Top scorer was Cindy Lawson with a good score of 70 nett. Kate Sawry, Jean Peters and Marge Dakin all on 75 nett and Dell Groundwater on 76 nett all scored a ball in the run down.

Janelle Thorburn won the club pin on the 16 and also the pin shot on 17.

The monthly medal went to Kate Sawry 1st Div and Cindy Lawson 2nd Div.

Trisch Williams won the putting with 30 putts while Kate Sawry won the senior ladies event.

Last Saturday saw a much better field of ladies play a stableford event.

There were some great scores returned, with Stella Macklin topping the list with 39 points.

Min Meadows was close behind with 38 points to be runner-up.

Janelle Thorburn started the run down with 37 points, followed by Lorraine Elliott 36, Kate Sawry, Dell Groundwater and Yoey Coogan all on 35 then Marj Dakin and Lydia Costello on 35.

Annette Slater had a great shot on 16 to win the club pin, while Karen Allen was on the right green to win the shot on 3, and Marge Dakin took out the 17th.

Janelle Thorburn scored 3 birdies for the day and Stella Macklin also caught one for her birdie tree.

Four Ladies played the zone foursomes at Woodford on Friday, while scoring quite well did not quite make the honours list.

Ladies, the Silver & Bronze Championships are coming up at Caloundra soon - if you can make that day we could do with your support. Please see Yoey as it may not be too late to include your nomination.

Please see time change for Saturday, October 1.

It is now a 9am shotgun start because of the football final.
