Wingham Golf Club Report

Last Saturday the usual number of players turned up for their usual round of golf, and of course it rained.

As a result the competition for the day, the Secretary Manager’s trophy has been postponed to a later date.

However for those players who did get 18 holes in, there was a small competition.

Of those the best was Peter Tait and Terry Thompson both on 39 points.

Terry was the unlucky one, “Taity” winning on a countback.

Three other players, Jarrod Harris, Phil Hanlen and Alan Thompson all had 37 points to share the minor prizes.

In the nearest to the pins competition, not all results were available, however Adrian Yeo won the 3rd/12th and Geoff Swaffield won both the All About Conveyancing 4th/13th and the Wingham Plaza butchers 1st/10th.

Paul Shepherd won the Bayview Seafoods 7th/16th and Terry Harris hit one close to win the 9th/18th Bent on Food hole.

Caddies Restaurant “shot of the day” went to Terry Harris with his great shot on 9/18.

Wednesday Veterans

WINGHAM Veterans woke to a chilly morning and 42 brave souls ventured out for a single Stableford. The cold morning however did not affect scoring as 43 points won the day.

That was from Jim Wootton who beat Courtney Adamson by a shot.

Thrid spot went to Don Gutterson with 40 points.

Well done lads.

Barry Miles hit a good shot to claim the NTP on the 3rd/12th and Barry Miles (again) did likewise on the 7th/16th, this time to less than a metre.

Friday ladies

A FRIENDLY group of ladies also encountered a chilly morning Friday during their round of nine holes. Gay Wagener handled the conditions best winning from Ruth Woodward, Sharon Juozaitis, Connie Gates, Narelle Smith and Robyn Dudgeon.

Gay also won the nearest to the pin and Gloria Burden won the long marker competition.

Thursday LJ Hooker Chook Run

THIS week has certainly been a week of interesting golf scenarios and it continued on Thursday when yours truly Graham Steel won the LJ Hooker chook run with 22 points.

I can tell you though, it was not due to good golf, just a good handicap (and guess who is handicapper).

Scott Brown was the unlucky player who came second with 21 points and Ken Squires was third with 20 points beating Dave Andrews on a countback.

Nearest to the pins was won by Ian Herd on the 7th and Neville Blanch on the 3rd.

Would you believe that is exactly the same as last week.

THE big event over the next few weeks is definitely the celebration of 100 years in operation for the Wingham Golf Club on August 7.
