Men - 3/5/2022

A field of 56 players played in the single stableford event at the Warwick Golf Club last Saturday. The event was sponsored by BNW Accountants and the Club is indebted to that fine firm for their sponsorship. \ The scores are bunching up of late whereas you could win a ball without playing to your handicap but that has certainly changed recently. You certainly have to play to your handicap to win a ball these days. Last Saturday Aaron Osborne scored 40 points to win the day narrowly from runner up Charlie Morrison showing a return to better form with 39 points. Charlie won the runner up voucher on a countback from Trevor Davies. Kris McLennan had an excellent 3 under off the stick to record 38 points as did Mal Crawford. The only players with 37 points to win a ball were Eddie Kemp, Ted King and Ron Simon. Bob Lester with 37 points missed out and there were a number of players with 36 points. Charlie Morrison won 5 balls in the Pro Pin on the 13th while Kris McLennan 4 Jessie Ollerton 3 and Ian Wallace a ball. The NTP on the 7th went to Allan Matthews while Adam Nielson won both the 9th and the 16th with Shane Scotney winning the 11th. Next Saturday the May Monthly Medal is on supported by John Dee and on Saturday the 28th May we have the Cunningham Trophy which is another honour board event supported by Advance Metal Products. In the interim members play the matchplay championships where Kris McLennan is top seed attempting to win the stroke play and match play championships while Seam Haynes is top seed in the "B" grade and David Walker is also attempting to win both match play and stroke play championships in "C" grade. On Monday over 100 members played in the very popular Warwick Real Estate 2 ball ambrose event. The event is always a popular day and thanks to Neil Carney and the team from Warwick Real Estate for their ongoing support of this day for the club. Father and Son team Clive and Matty Pulley were the big winners on the day while Keith and Karen Clarke won the mixed division of the day. Chris Hynes and Ros Darton did a great job of looking after patrons on the deck during the afternoon so a special thanks to them also. While on the subject of special thanks, members should look towards Ian and Don Stewart and their small band of special helpers who have been working extremely hard to finalise the building of the new buggy sheds which are now very nearly completed . This has been a very big job and a great saving to the club so a very big thanks to them for a tremendous job well done.
