Down the Fairway

ANOTHER week in paradise has seen some good fields turn out for golf and several good scores as a result.
Onto the golf and we start with results of last Saturday’s event.
Saturday CompetitionLAST Saturday 60 players competed for the February Taree Motorama Monthly Mug/MRD Electrical Medals and Kangaroofing long drives.
The rains of the past few weeks has resulted in quite thick grass on the fairways, limiting run, so players have struggled to get to the greens.
In other words, the course was the winner Saturday.
Best score on the day was from young B-grader Damien Moore, his net 71 one shot better than C-grade winner Phil Hanlen on 72.
Damien and Phil also won the MRD medals for their respective grades. A-grade net and medal was won by Dave Andrews with 84/73.
B-grade net was won by Geoff Swaffield with 74.
Gross winners in each grade were Rod Brown (A-grade and 80), John Hynes (B-grade and 89 on a c/b) and C-grade went to Trevor Abbott with 96.
In the putting section “Tubby’s balls” were won by Paul Pratten with 27 on a countback.
The proof that the course was the winner on the day, came from the fact that the score of the last ball in the ball competition was a net 77 on a countback by Jason Fowles.
That is the highest for a while.
The nearest to the pins were understandably mixed with the best that of just over a metre by Richard Dudgeon to win the 9th/18th Bent on Food hole.
Cam Darby also hit a good one to win the Wingham Plaza Butchers 1st/10th as did Ron Desborough on the Wingham Gourmet Meats 3rd/12th.
Others were Richard Clark (the All About Conveyancing 4th/13th) and Mick Parker (7th/16th Bayview Seafoods).
Wednesday VeteransA GREAT field of 58 veterans competed in a stroke event last week and again, no-one broke 70.
Peter Bacon was the best with a 70 net, one shot ahead of Phil Hanlen on 71 and Dave Andrews was third with net 72.
OBE was won by Nev Hall with a 78 net.
NTP’s were won by good shots from Neville Bell on the 3rd/12th and Gordon Shanko on the 7th/16th.
Best second shot to the 9th/18th was also won by Dave Andrews, who also won the putting with a mere 24 putts.
Wednesday AmbroseTHIRTY nine players enjoyed fine conditions Wednesday ‘arvo’ with most teams struggling for birdies.
Best score came from “the Beatties” captained by Adam Beattie.
They shot three under to beat “Chequered Bobcat” (Steve Welch) by less than a shot after handicaps.
The “Where’s Wally” team of the past few weeks parted company this week but a couple joined forces with some relations to form the “Browns plus Tubby” team.
They came in third, less than half of a short in arrears.
Saul O’Brien won the NTP on the third, Andrew Stone won the port and Tammy Steere from the restaurant won the club voucher.
Thursday LJ Hooker Chook RunIT was a win for the “fairer sex” this week in the Thursday chook run, Beth Braham the winner with 20 points.
Rod Brown shot a one over par round to record 19 points and claim second on a countback from Jim Clarke.
Graham Steel scrambled around for 18 points and fourth (plus a free coffee from the “masseuse”), beating James Urquhart on a countback.
NTP’s were won by members of the “skins” group, Mark Fotheringham on the third and Rod Brown on the seventh.
2015 LNC PennantsTHIS year Wingham entered teams in Division 1, 3 and 4 and despite some great play from most team members, all three were beaten in round one.
Some players had wins whilst most others had narrow losses.
Round two will be played this weekend.
Coming EventsTHIS Saturday is a mixed event with a Medley (men and women) two ball aggregate with a singles in conjunction scheduled. This event is sponsored by the captain’s wife, so you better turn up.
Good luck and good golfing.
