THURSDAY 11th APRIL

Another very good field of 145 players enjoyed fine weather, interesting pin positions and slick greens with a resultant DSR of 73/72.

In fact, only four players played better than their handicap.

In A Grade Mark Anderson went round in one under par off his handicap of 3 to register the equal best score of the day of 40 points, three better than Barry Podmore who edged out Brendan Warby on countback to take second place on 37 points.

In B Grade Vice-Captain Peter Jones finally emerged victorious with 36 points off his handicap of 20, one better than Richard Easton and two better than Bob Bennett.

In C Grade Lionel Field continued his good recent form in recording 40 points off his handicap of 26, with Ian Lowe on 36 points and Mark Bartrop (his first placing) on 35 points well in his wake.

The nearest-the-pin winners were Rick Porter on 3, Colin Holmes on 9, Alan Butterworth from Tumbarumba on 14 and Graham Mumme on 17, while the ball competition went down to all on 32 points.

Worth special mention is Steve Richard's effort in scoring an eagle on 15 where he sank his second shot from a long way out to a very difficult pin position to register 6 points by dint of his two shots on the whole.

Unfortunately those six points formed a significant part of his overall score.

SATURDAY 13th APRIL

A field of 128 players took to the course which played to a DSR of 71/72.

In A Grade Andrew Thompson had a fine round in scoring 40 points off his handicap of 10 to win by one point from Matt Corbett with Tracy Mitchell in third place on 37 points.

In B Grade Michael Commins made good use of his handicap of 18 to register the best score of the day of 43 points.

Kevin Seamons filled second place with 40 points while Gary Leahy needed the countback to edge out Les Campbell on 37 points for third position.

C Grade was taken out by Denis Davies with 40 points off his handicap of 26, one point better than Frank Clarke on 39 and two better than Trevor Owens on 38, who edged out Lionel Field on countback to take third place.

The nearest-the-pin winners were Jayne Hotchkis on 3, Mitch Jeffery pn 9, Scott Ker on 14 and John Hoare on 17 while the ball competition went down to 32 points with 17 on the way home. RGI.
