With a combination of grand parenting duties and a wet course following recent rains affecting numbers, a small field of 43 players registered for the Tuross Head Veterans Golf Single Stableford event on Wednesday 7 April 2021. As is usual for the Tuross Vets, grand children are allowed to play in the Vets competitions during school holidays, and today’s game was no exception.
Winner on the day was visiting junior Joe Eccleston with a fine score of 22 points. Joe beat home local Vets players Steve Collins with 21, Bruce Martin on 20 and Ross Hendy with 18 on count back. Minor prizes were awarded to Teri Swanbury on 18, Paul Pereira and Ken Brown with 17, and to John Cox, Dorothy Madden, Graham Moore and Warren Hodder all on 16 points. The Bradman award was a hotly contested affair with Neal Watson winning out on count back. Nearest the pins went to Bruce Martin on the 4th, Ted Quinlan on the 6th, and to Leonie Snodgrass and Herb Muriwai on the 7th. Leonie Snodgrass took out the Accuracy award.
