The Saturday competition was an 18-Hole 4BBB Stableford Medley, sponsored by Cahill’s Footwear. One pair among the 100 players managed a record score for this type of event, finishing well ahead of the field.
The overall winners were Harrison Callaghan and Warren Baxter, who both used their agile bodies and handicaps to score 58 points. This is an unofficial record, due to the ‘Preferred Lie’ rule, but is way ahead of the previous record. The runners-up were Tim and Graham West who combined to score 47 points. They parred each par-3 except the last.
The highest Ladies’ pairing, finishing fifth on the leader board, was Robin Lyell and Lindy Pollock, with 45 points. The highest placed mixed pairing was Shirley Redfern and Alf Watts on 42 points in 19th place.
The ball sweep went to 43 points on count back, so check in the Pro Shop to see if you were successful.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – Ladies’ R Carroll and Men’s J Roylance; 18th – Ladies’ V Rebellato and Men’s H Callaghan. The 3rd – hole Super Pin went to Scott Kirkman.
The Sunday Stableford Medley had a tidy field, which was displaced by the brief rain period that occurred through the middle of the day. The eventual winner was Rob Webb with 33 points, over Denise Squires on 23 points.
