Wednesday 21/2/21 saw 52 members tee off in the  Betta Home Living trophy. Numbers were reduced with many of our sporters members attending the funeral service for our long time member John Devitt who passed away last week after a long illness.


Winner on the day was Dr Who 2 aka Bryan Slattery with an excellent 39 points off his handicap of 32, which will not last for long!.  Runner-up was Rhys Farrell, a third as old with a handicap 8 times less ( 4!) on 38 points. Shows handicaps do actually work!.


Ball rundown:  Mark Paroz/ Peter Darton/Wayne Foster all on 38, Adam hart 37, then the two Peters , Walsh and Wright on 36.


NTP’s:  Mark Paroz on 5 and 16 (obviously looking at a handicap reduction soon and whose excellent taste in shorts is much admired!), Derrick Hewitt on 7th, Peter Wright on 9th.  Pro pin on 11th – Garry Hanson 4, Ian Skillen 3, Peter Walsh 2 and Ron Simon 1.  Pro pin on 13th – Evan Pfeffer 3, Rambo Scotney 2 and Eddie Raets 1.


This week is our normal stableford competition sponsored by Bells Butchery. In addition, inside that competition, the Medal of Medallists competition for winners of the pro-shop sponsored stroke event each month for last year will compete for a new car, 2 gold bars and a packet of tees. Facebook followers will see that Sam the Pro has put up his car for sale to cover the prizes, maybe??  The finalists in that play-off will be Mal Crawford/Daryl Bain/ Sam McLennan/ Wayne Watt/ Daffy Hynes/Peter Farrell/David Craggs ( who is odds on to win the long drive trophy!!) Shane Scotney/Robin Farrell/Greg Carey/Dave Speedy and Scott McLennan. 


Shootout qualifiers now have four more Wednesdays to get on the board. If anyone already qualified is not able to tee off in the final, to be played on 18/3/21, please let a committee member know asap.


And finally, our golfing thought for the week ; Íf it’s not how you win or lose but how you play the game, why keep score?’..Ron Brackin.
