Green renovations impact golf comp scoring over weekend

THE green renovations definitely had an impact on scoring through all competitions over the weekend.

The good thing is that the rain will definitely speed up the recovery rate of the greens and by this weekend they should almost be back to normal.

The best score on Saturday was by C Grader Steve Nitschinsk who had 40 points and a one-shot win over Alan Peters.

Seeing as there was no report last week I should mention that Alan has had 2 runner-ups and a win in the last week.

A Grade was taken out by Doug Burrows with 38 points from Graham Meertens on 36 while in B Grade a count back was needed to separate two players on 38 points with Marvin Reck being awarded the trophy from Ian Harth.

Our local school teachers supplied the trophies for the weekend and the winner of the Teachers Award was new member Phil Morgan with a good score of 38 points.

In the ladies division Annie Coulch's 33 points was enough to take out the event from Pam Robinson.

The Legacy Charity Golf Day was held on Sunday and Rob Mugford took out the Max Salter Shield.

In A Grade Lionel Moores won with 38 points from Peter Baker on 37 while in B Grade Rob was the winner from Bob Woodger on 38.

The ladies winner was Maureen Freemantle with 33 points from Di Gees on 32 and the Callaway prize went Peter Whelan with 73 on a count back.

There is plenty of golf for players this weekend with Saturday being the final Monthly Medal for both men and ladies and Sunday is the annual Tinana State School Charity Day.

There are still some spots available for this popular Ambrose day so contact the Pro Shop on 4121 3765 to nominate.

The sheet for the Honour board Presentation Day is now out and this day is set down for Sunday, November 30 with a shotgun start at 8am.

The field will be restricted so please nominate your teams early to avoid disappointment.

The cost of the day is $30 per player and includes, golf, lunch and the presentation of all Honour board winners for our Club this year.
