Todd Jacobs recent good form saw him top of the pile last Wednesday. Todd had 39 points to finish a clear winner over the also very consistent Michael Welbourn, 37 and Murray Kennedy 36 was third. Robbie Porter won the NTP again this time on the 15th.
Only a small field hit off on Thursday in the Veterans competition and it was Les (I’m in a Hurry) Forde won again. It is good to see Les back in the winner’s circle.
Saturday saw one of the most successful days at the club for a long time. A big field and a lot of fun was had by all in a B A M event sponsored by Marj Chappell. Marj asked that players wear their football colours. The highlight of the day was a HOLE –IN-ONE by Barry Cameron on the 6th. Congratulations Crewy in achieving every golfers dream again.
The sad part of this story is that Jason Brady was just a couple of inches from the pin and was no doubt sure he was going to collect the NTP prize, until Barry came along.
Anyhow the winners of the event were Trevor and Darrell Carson with 65 points. Barry Cameron and Bruce McMullen took second place and Marj Chappell and daughter Kylie were next best. Jason Brady and Joe Walters had 61 and Jon Izzard and Charlie Murray 59 points.
NTP Winners were RAB 3rd Marj Chappell, NAB 6th Barry Cameron (Of Course) 9th Coleen Taggart, 11th Simon Wood, Rob Browns Denture Clinic Neil Free and Bridges Finance 17th Duncan McLean.
The new watering system is now working and just a little finishing off to be done. The greens have been cored and Shaun will be top dressing so the greens will be playing a little different for the next few weeks. All we need now is a bit of rain to water the rest of the course.
