The Saturday Men’s Par event, sponsored by Everest Auto Repairs and contested by 54 players, required count backs to decide winners and runners-up.
The A-Division had three players finishing on 5-up. The count back resulted in Alf Davies being declared the winner, ahead of runner-up Phil Maher who himself finished ahead of Phil Duke. The B-Division was easier with Craig Barrett the winner on 7-up and Jeff Haley runner-up on count with 3-up.
The ball sweep went to 1-up on count back: 7 up – C Barrett; 5 up – A Davies, P Maher, P Duke; 4 up – A Dukes, R Webb, I Bown; 3 up – S Kirkman, J Zannes, J Haley, G Falvey, B Everest, D Mylecharane; 2 up – D Culley, T Morgan, R Harrison; A Rees.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – P Pymont; 18th – P Dawson, neither of whom got a ‘2’.
There were a number of visitors, including – Stuart Hayes (Murrumbidgee ) Peter Jackson (Coffs Harbour), Alan Holley (Noosa) and Greg Hofman, Riall Harrison, Tony Lock, Tony Riach, Lachlan Buesnell and Ken Cobcroft from Parkes.
It was a special day for Craig, not only celebrating a win but also his birthday, and tying the best score on the back-9 with good mate Scott Kirkman.
Of special note was an eagle scored by Todd Callaghan on the 2nd hole. He was confident with his putt. He just missed another on the 7th.
The Stableford Medley on Sunday was a very quiet affair with many of the usual players recovering. The winner was Bess Shields with 40 points. There was no runner- up or ball sweep.
The NTP’s had a mixed story. Visitor Brett Byrnes (Condo) managed a good shot on the 9th, but the 18th went lonely. Brett enjoyed his day scoring 38 points off a par round.
On Friday the Annual Rugby Union Presidents Lunch Golf Game was held, attracting a field of 88 players. Results will be notified in a separate report.
