Saturday’s Men’s competition was the annual American Foursomes, sponsored by Milton Cartwright, and contested by 28 pairs of players. This event requires good combination of players abilities, which were ably demonstrated by the winners.
Steve and John Betland used their brotherly ESP to produce a winning score of 65 Nett. It was a delightful amalgam of shots which compiled a 34-31 split. Runners-up in a near equal score were Terry Griffiths and Craig Barrett, with a handicap assisted 65.5 nett.
The ball sweep went to 67.5 nett on count back. The lucky recipients were: 65 – S and J Betland; 65.5 – T Griffiths/ C Barrett; 66 – N McMillan/ B Carpenter; 66.5 – B Everest/ P Maher; 67 – L Little/ G Falvey; 67.5 – B Hazell/ W Judge, A Dukes/ S French.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – D Churchill; 18th – S Betland, with only three 2’s scored overall. Visitors included players from Hervey Bay and Dubbo.
The funniest story was provided by Bob Borger and Peter Barnes. Off the 4th tee they both put their shots into the dry dam on the corner. Then swapping balls they both played out to the green with Peter putting his shot onto the flat stuff. It was follow the leader.
The Presentation for the Winter 3’s comp was held at the Golfie, with all teams represented. Congratulations to the Winners (G Besgrove, T Rousell, N Girot), the Runners- up (R Taylor, J Haley, A Tucker), and the best score Winner (Som).
