Saturday’s scheduled event, the Daine Doolin Memorial, was postponed yet again. However, Golf Pro Daniel organised the Inaugural Par-3 Aqua Golf Medley competition – a 6-hole, Par-54 layout utilising unorthodox tee positions to selected holes. Fifteen golfers rose to the challenge, proclaiming the event a most enjoyable and
successful venture. The Scratch winner was Peter Dawson with 56. The Handicap winner was Jill Cripps, with nett 45. The Handicap runner-up was Bob Borger with 46, getting there on count back.
The ball sweep went to 47 nett, being picked up by: 46 – B Drabsch and 47 – P Barnes. The NTP’s went to 9th- P Dawson and 18th – M Collits. There were eleven 2’s scored. Ecky Dawson scored three 2’s, each on different holes, and Doug Churchill scored two 2’s, also on separate holes.
