Good scores on still greens

By Seymour Telegraph



A stableford event with a field of 31 players was contested at Nagambie on Sunday, with still conditions and the rub of the greens fairly consistent, meaning a good score would be required to take the win.

That good score came from Peter Lawrence with 43 stableford points winning the day ahead of Gary Bow carding 42.

The good scores continued with three more players shooting three better than handicap 39s, Greg Whiteman, Alan Anderson and Dean Brown.

Nearest-the-pins were all hotly contested with Jeff Mills claiming the third, Dean Brown taking out the eighth, Trevor Redfern knocking it to a couple of inches and birdying the 13th and Harold Rayner sticking the 16th.

This week’s golf will be a four-ball best-ball stableford, on office duty will be D. Love and in the bar B. Leviston.


The previous week saw a par event and the monthly medal contested, where Jane Bow won A, B and C-grades, on a count back from Maureen King — both with +4.

Jane also won the monthly medal.

The nine-hole winner was also Jane on a count back from Maureen King and Carol Wallis. All had +3.

Eighteen-hole balls went to Jane and Maureen, and the nine-hole balls went to Jane and Carol on a count back from Maureen.

Today’s golf will be a stableford event.

Chicken run results from the previous week saw 22 players compete in a stableford event played on the front nine. Winner was Shawn Spicer with 21 points.

Nearest-the-pin was Adam Webster. Tomorrow’s golf will be a stroke event to be played on the back nine with nearest-the-pin on the 16th hole.

Pell did have the best scratch though with 75 off the stick.
