    All day
    03/07/2019

They were followed home by Peg Nevett partnering Rick Brake on a score of 35 points on count back from Greg Bush and Ross Macalpine, and in fourth place Ron Hanlon partnering with Leonie Snodgrass on 34, on count back. Balls or chocolates were won by the teams of Bruce Martin and Kevin Dukes, Greg Thornton and Ted Quinlan together with Steve Swanbury and Margaret Downey on 34, and then Teri Swanbury with David Williams and Ian Miller partnering Frank Pomfret on 33.

  • Vets Golf Stableford
    All day
    10/07/2019

    The prospect of a particularly cool start to play saw a number of regular golfers elect to stay under the covers this morning, resulting in a smaller than usual field of 53 players for today’s Stableford event. Perhaps it was the cool temperature but scores were well down on average, with the winner, Neal Watson, beating home the field on 20 points. Runner up was Mike Birks on 19 from Ian Wratten and Rick Brake on 18. Balls or chocolates were won by Jennifer Gray, Stephen Crossling, Annette Manton, Noel Fletcher and Jeanette Miller on 17 points, Geoff Bellingham, Greg Bush, Peter McRae and Sandra Hanlon on 16, and finally Shirley Quinlan on 15 points after a 10 way count back was required.

    Two players were obviously troubled by the early morning temperature and struggled to score, with Herb Muriwai edging out Solveig Olsson for the Bradman award on count back. Nearest the pins went to Bruce Martin on the 4th, Ian Manton on the 6th, and Annette Manton and Kevin Dukes on the 7th. Leonie Snodgrass hit an outstanding drive well down the 5th to take out the Accuracy award this week.

  • Vets Golf Par
    All day
    17/07/2019

    Fifty six players registered for the day’s Par event. Winner on the day was Robin Green with +4 on count back from runner up Les Johanson on the same +4 score. They beat home Chris Wratten and Paul Green with +3s. Balls or chocolates were won by Steve Collins on +3, Margaret Downey, Barry Hoban and Gail Rogers on +2, followed by Peter Macdonald, Leonie Snodgrass and Terry Lunn on +1, and finally Dorothy Madden, Kevin Dukes, Peter McRae and Noel Fletcher all on square. Without doubt the best morning round was played by Leonie Snodgrass playing off a handicap of 4 finishing with a +1, and a 38 off the stick.

    This week’s Bradman award went to Ted Quinlan on count back, whilst nearest the pins were won by Ian Wratten on the 4th, Ken Brown on the 6th, and Leonie Snodgrass and Ian Miller on the 7th. The Accuracy award on the 5th hole was taken out by Ross Davidson.
