Putts "n" Pars

Weekend Competition

With Corrie and Dean Hayes providing the trophies for the day, a total of 84 players took up the challenge in a 18 hole American Foursomes Competition last Saturday, a rather unique event for our regular Saturday Golfers.

The event did not cause the winning duo too much pain, in which Jack Hancock (17) and Jake Lambeth (22) scored 41 shots on each 9 for a gross score of 82, following the application of their handicap they finished with a net score of 67.375 just a half a shot over the runner up pairing of Danny Li (4) and Tony Daly (15) who completed their round with a nett total of 67.875 on a countback from Terry Bowe (17) and Noel Allen (18).

The nearest the pin awards were dominated by Greg Harvison (1), who claimed both the 10th and 17th. Danny Li (4) took out the 6th, with Jeffrey Miller (10) the winner of the Pro-pin on the 1st , his tee shot finishing just 110cm past the pin.

Teams with a score of 70.875 or better were successful in claiming a pro-ball for the effort. It is pleasing to see our regular members support Grafton

Golf with sponsorship, and all those playing on Saturday appreciate the support from Corrie and Dean.

Midweek Competition

The Tuesday Competition attracted a strong field of 83 players in the combined Members/Veterans Stableford competition with the results in both divisions identical as far as the major winners are concerned. With a score of 40 pts, Greg McCaughey (25) was the winning player establishing a two point buffer over his nearest competitor, Michael Gane (12) with 38 pts. A five way countback was required to sort out the 2nd runner up position. In the end it was Don Skarratt (22) who was awarded the trophy from Doug Hughes (11) Brad Mostyn (12) Paul Ricketts (21) and Peter Smyth (27).

No surprise to see Tim Bartlett (2) claim another N.T.P. award in the members competition on the 6th, with Greg McCaughey (25) adding to his trophy awards for the day picking up prize on the 10th. The Veterans N.T.P awards went to Brett McConnell (7) on the 1st with Dougie Hughes (11) claiming the 17th. Pro balls going down to 32 pts on c/b in the veterans and 33 pts also on c/b in the members division.

On the Thursday, the event was the monthly Tallowood Challenge, a stroke competition in which there were 55 starters. With an excellent score of 69 nett, David Gilbert (23) was a dominate winner, three (3) shots clear of 4 players with 72 nett. At the conclusion of the required countback it was a visitor from Bargara Golf Club who was awarded the 1st runner up spot, Richard Berry playing of 3 handicap. David Morgan (11) also as a result of the countback process was named as the2nd runner up winner, those missing out on the major prizes also with 72 were Col Hadley (17) and Kingsley Smith (9).

In the N.T.P. department, serial N.T.P. ace was once again Tim Bartlett (2) on the 1st, Mark Hackett (8), Peter Gibbons (14) claimed the 10th with Col Hadley (17) being awarded the

N.T.P. prize on the 17th. Pro Balls went down to 76 nett on a countback/
