On Saturday, 53 players contested an Individual Stableford event, sponsored by Marg Hurst in memory of her dear, Ron Hurst.
The A-division winner was Tony Cogswell, with 42 points. Runner-up was Doug Churchill with a good 39 points. In the Bdivision, Peter Tisdell won with a score of 43 points. Runner-up was Bob Borger with his 42 points.
The ball sweep went to 37 points on count back, going to: 43 – P Tisdell; 42 – T Cogswell, R Borger; 40 – G Webb, M Watts; 39 – D Churchill, R Morris; 38 – P Kay, G Collits and 37 – P Cowhan, R Nixon, L Little, P Grayson.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – P Pymont; 18th – M Watts.
The best story of the day goes to Tony Cogswell’s ‘2’, scored on the 10th hole. His tee shot was slightly left, from where he drew his second around the trees. The ball flew as he had hoped, landed, rolled and disappeared into the hole. His jubilation was shared by all in his group.
Sunday was a beautiful Spring day, which was enjoyed by a small but energetic field in the Stableford Medley. No doubt the show had tired a few regulars out.
The winner was Bruce Carpenter, with 33 points. He nudged in ahead of Rod Besgrove on count back. There was no ball sweep.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – Bess Shields; 18th – Rod Besgrove. An enjoyable day was had by Kevin Rivett, a visitor from Portland GC. He was in the mix with the front-runners but unfortunately missed out on count back.
