Putts n Pars - Monday 22nd May 2023

Putt’s ‘n’ Pars from Grafton Golf Club

Knockout Update

With the semi-finals of the Grafton Glass 2 man Ambrose knockout now completed, the finalist have now been decided. Progressing to the finals are the combination of Jackson Wright and Brodie Boorman who will take on the pairing of Graham and Peter Tracey with both pairing fairly evenly matched. This should result in a tough final to win. Grafton Glass, through the courtesy of Dennis Pye, have been associated with this event for many years and is very much appreciated by all those players in the series.

Weekend Golf

Last Saturday the Cromack Transport 4BBB Stableford was held with almost 90 players taking up the challenge. In the end it was the combination of Graham Tracey (10) and Craig Heaslip (28) who was awarded the winner’s trophy with 45 points. They were very consistent over the 18 holes scoring 22 around the front and backed that up with 23 on the back. A countback was required to sort out the runner-up position with those teams completing their 18 hole campaign on 44. At the completion of that process Craig Woods (13) and Paul Ensby (13) took home the 1st runner-up prize from Cameron Hart (11) and Tim Bartlett (4). On the wrong side of the countback with 44 was Shane Essex (11) and Andrew Brien (20). Andrew did pick up a more than worthwhile consolation prize, claiming the Pro pin on the 1st with his tee shot finishing 221 cm from the cup. The three remaining nearest the pin prizes were awarded to Cameron Hart (11) on the 6th, Darron King (21) on the 10th with Graham Tracey adding to his weekend trophy haul by picking up the prize on the 17th. Teams with a score of 42 points or better scored themselves a pro balls.

Midweek Golf

On Thursday the monthly Tallowood Challenge was held with 61 starters teeing it up. With a score of 71 nett, Patrick Dougherty (12) was the star on the day from three players on 72. It was Mark Dougherty (10) who was named the 1st runner-up winner from Glenn Gardner (12). Missing out on trophy glory for his 72 was David Morgan (13). The nearest the pin trophies relating to the Tallowood Challenge went to Jackson Wright (+2) on the 1st, Mark Fuller (18) on the 6th, the great Ray Evans (21) the 10th with Billy Bishop (12) claiming the 17th. Proballs went down to those on 78 or better. Unfortunately the Tuesday competition was rained out with just a handful of players braving the wet conditions.


The focus of golf this week will be on the Women’s Annual May Tournament and as a consequence there will be no Mens Thursday golf. Saturday’s competition will be a 18 hole Mixed American Foursomes competition which is the final event in the women’s 59th May Tournament. Sponsors of this traditional event are AC Small Maxwell & Associates. At the time of preparing this report there are very limited number of vacancies remaining in the field. Check with the Pro shop for those possible vacancies. Golf action will commence with a 9.30am shotgun start and groups will comprise of six players.

Next week the normal midweek competitions will resume with the Saturday competition being the Craig Woods Plumbing June Monthly Mug. That event will also incorporate round two of the Clarence Valley Rural & Industrial supplies Winter Consistency trophy. The final two rounds of this series to be completed in July and August.
