Under beautiful sunny skies and a warmer temperature, 65 players teed off this morning for the Vets 4BBB Stableford event. Scores on the day were outstanding, a fact noted and to be acted upon by the handicapper.

Winning team on the day was the combination of Rob Nash and Dave Munro with 29 points on count back from Henry Anderson and Terry Lunn on the same incredible score. They were followed home by 5 teams on 26 points, with the prize money for third and fourth places going to Steve Collins combining with Solveig Olsson and Ken Brown with his grandson Ceiran. Balls or chocolates were won by Marcel Kors and Don Russell, Tim Starr and Les Johanson, and Jeanette and Ian Miller with all 3  teams missing out on the 26 count back money, followed by Noel Downie and Enid Besant-Ryan on 25 and Len and Gail Rogers on 24 on a 3 way count back.

Ross Hendy and Noel Fletcher won the Bradman award, whilst nearest the pins were taken out by Ken Brown on the 4th, Kevin Dukes on the 6th, and Leonie Snodgrass and Ted Quinlan on the 7th. Terry Challender hit the straightest drive on the 5th to win this week’s Accuracy drive.

Vets Golf Stroke and Putts

By |2019-09-11T16:44:51+10:00September 11th, 2019|

On a beautiful sunny morning a smaller than usual field of only 44 players teed off for the Stroke and Putts event, the game also being the second and final round of the 2019 Tuross Veterans Golf championships. Winner on the day was Ian Wratten with a fine nett score of 31, beating home Bruce Martin on count back with the same score. Ken Hush took out third place on 32 on count back from Rob Nash, also with a 32. Balls or chocolates were won by Ross Hendy and Kevin Dukes on 33, Tim Starr and Ian Manton on 34, Peg Nevett and Les Johanson on 35, and finally Barry Hoban the lone 35 scorer.

Contributing to his good score, Ken Hush completed the nine holes with only 13 putts to win the day’s putting competition. Noel Fletcher, our second eldest player and this his first game back from a shoulder injury, took out the Bradman award, whilst nearest the pins were won by Mike Birks on the 6th, and Shirley Quinlan and Ian Miller on the 7th. Somewhat surprisingly none of the 44 players managed to hit the green on the 6th. This week’s Accuracy award was taken out by Chris Wratten.
