Saturday Golf 28/12/19 – Single Stableford –Club Trophy Day.
The last competition day of the year for our members saw a good field take part for trophies supplied by the club as is traditional this time of year.
Several players posted scores to or slightly better than their handicap. However, Peter Wildblood came out on top with a fine 39 points to edge out Tom Yates (38 pts) for the day’s best. Both gentlemen took out A & C Grade respectively with our infrequent plumber Bruce McKechnie winning B Grade with 33 points.
Balls went to those abovementioned along with Roy Crichton 37, Paul Coote 37, Steve Williams 37, Steve Benson 37 & Wayne Maddalena 36.
NTPs: A Grade: Noh Juan Hitt; B Grade: Bruce McKechnie; C Grade: Miss Tout;
C Grade Long Drive: Steve Benson
Once again, thank you to all our sponsors throughout 2019 – your support is tremendously appreciated.
Saturday Golf 4/1/20 – Stroke Round (Monthly Mug) – Arkwood Trophy Day.
The first competition day of the year was a very stern test of golf for the diehards at Gloucester Country Club. Temperatures in the mid-forties meant that players had to keep well hydrated.
The conditions certainly didn’t bother one Mr. Paul Coote who posted his personal best round & took out the mug with a super impressive 63 nett. Paul has been in a red-hot purple patch of late & the way he’s playing B Grade is just around the corner. Ben Veitch was desperately unlucky not to take out the day with his 67 nett. Great shooting Benny – that must have been close to your personal best too with 77 off the beater. Due to the low numbers on the day it was decided not to give out grade trophies. Therefore Paul was 1st, Ben 2nd & the ever-consistent Roy Crichton was 3rd with 74 nett.
Balls went to those three players along with Derek Bardwell
Peter Wildblood (A Grade) was the only one to take out a NTP.
A Grade Long Drive: Ben Veitch.
Next Saturday’s event is a 2BBB stableford sponsored by Kevin & Lorraine Adams.
Our 2020 golf programme books have now been printed. Pick one up next time you’re in the clubhouse.
The club would like to thank all our valued members for an excellent 2019 & we look forward to a prosperous 2020.
Saturday Golf 11/1/20 – Single Stableford – Kevin & Lorraine Adams Trophy Day.
We must extend our gratitude to Kevin & Lorraine – long term supporters of the club. Considering they do not play our great game it’s a mighty effort to back up year after year & sponsor a Saturday comp. A good field of about 30 players teed off & scores were, on average, excellent. Best of the day was posted by the younger of the golfing Crichtons. Nice shooting Shane – your 41 points probably equated to only a few shots over par. It easily outgunned the rest of the golfing contingent & also took out the A Grade trophy. Runner-up in A Grade was the ever-consistent Doug Blanch with 36 points. In the B Grade gold medal position was our salubrious ex-greens superintendent Brian “Hairy” Osborne with 36 points. I reckon Hairy is a red-hot favourite for the B Grade championship this year. B Grade R/U was Adam Hall with 34 points. In C Grade Bert Newman took home the bacon with a fine 38 points. Bert hardly ever misses a Saturday’s golf – good to see him back to his best.
C Grade R/U was our hard-working committee member Pete Markey with very respectable 35 points.
Balls went to the abovementioned players as well as Roy Crichton 37, Ben Veitch 36, Wayne Maddalena 35.
NTPs: A Grade: Wayne Maddalena; B Grade: Bruce Fraser; C Grade: N. Juan Insite;
B Grade Long Drive: Derek Bardwell
Good golfing one & all. Shankers apprentice.
