A healthy 10 ml of rain dampened the spirit of potential players last Saturday restricting the field to 40 players and it was tight at the top.
Leon Sticklen survived a three way countback on 67 to defeat Mark Thomas and Adam Nielsen who all had the required 67. Mark became the division 1 winner and Leon scored the division 11 result while Adam received the runner up division 11 voucher and the runner up division 1 voucher went to Rhys Farrell on 68.
The ball run down went to and Ed Kemp on 68, the in form Dave Craggs, Steve Klease and John Devitt all on 70.
The pins saw the 5th go to Steve Klease, the 7th to Ron Simon, the 11th to Garry Adcock and the 16th to Sam McLennan.
The pro pin on 13 saw Slim win 4 balls, Eddie Kemp 3, Eddy Reats 2 and Allan Matthews one ball.
104 players turned out on a beautiful Monday afternoon to play in the Thailand Golf Tours sponsored 2 ball ambrose. There were stacks of winners with Cita Weier and Danielle Siebel winning the ladies section from Vonnie Pinington and Majella Kahler and Mel and Eliza McLennan.
The Mens section saw Slim and Col Dwyer score from Michael Watt and Josh Hynes and Dave Speedy and Ted King. Good to see Col on the other side of the bar and playing well.
The mixed section was won by Kath and Charlie Morrison from John and Lyndelle Kemp.
After reading a great story on locals Ken and Margie Burley in the national golf magazine this month it seemed only fitting that 90 year old Ken should shoot his age again last week in the Wednesday event.
Well done yet again Ken!!
Next Saturday we play in an 18 hole flag event sponsored by The Malthouse and hopefully it will be another beautiful day like we had on Monday.
