Men - 4/10/2021

Last Saturday members played in the John Dee Monthly Medal stroke event and the club acknowledges the generous ongoing support of the John Dee company who have supported this event for a long time now. There was an excellent field of 75 players for the event boosted by a group of 8 players from Redland Bay as well as Carbrook, Brisbane River, Woodford, Fraser Lakes and of course our regular visitor from Clifton in Jay Roberts. The event was hotly contested with Phil McEvoy winning on a countback from Jay Roberts both on a net 67 with Dave Speedy just a shot back on 68. The Division A medal winner was Jason Owens who had a net 70 while runner up voucher winner was Shaun Campbell on net 71 representing a 75 off the stick, a good round in anybody's language. Naturally, Phil McEvoy was the Division B winner with Dave Speedy winning the runner up voucher with Jay being unable to win it as he is a visitor on the day. The ball run down saw Jay Roberts win a ball with his 67,Jessie Ollerton and Ross Bell both on 71, Peter Marer from Redland Bay on 72 along with Keith Farrell, Shane McDonnell, Ross Newton and the final ball winner Charlie Morrison. Shane McDonnell had a good day winning the pro pin with 7 balls, while Geoff Hinze won 5 balls, Jason Owens 4, Jay Roberts 2 and Drew Costello picked up a ball there as well. The NTP on 7 went to Redland Bay visitor Ian Neil while Mitch McLennan won the 9th, Jamie Ollerton the 11th and Wayne Watt the 16th. Next Saturday members play a single stableford event and one to mark in the book is the upcoming Patron's Day event which is to be played on Sunday the 24th October. Patron Rodney Macdonald sponsors this day and it is a medley 4BBB event so should be very popular being one of the few 4BBB events on the calendar. Get your partner organized and lets make this a big day.
