You’d be forgiven if you thought that there were only two players at the Monday Niners, but you would be mistaken.
Kevin McCormack (49-9-40) and Shane Wolfe (54-14-40) are still vying for top dog position.
Kevin won the count back this time.
Henry Hoppe made his presence felt with the straightest drive 9th and winning the count back for the putting (15) from Rod McAsey and Kevin McCormack.
The Wednesday Ladies found the going a bit harder with all the lovely green grass.
Shirley McAsey won the day (58-171/2-401/2), she also had the straightest drive 3rd and the least putts (15).
Denise Newth was runner up (though we have been instructed not to put her score in).
Lucky Lady Kath won our raffle.
Wednesday night was our Christmas Dinner which was enjoyed by all, provided by Tongala Catering Services.
Our members appreciated the free meal which the Committee decided should be given in appreciation for all the work our members and volunteers put into the club to keep it running.
Our numbers are few, our backs are bending and our hair is fifty shades of grey, (that’s if we still have it), but we continue regardless, to provide a safe secure environment for the great game of golf.Rochester
Kevin McCormick has had his fair share of wins over the last few months and last Wednesday was no exception.
He claimed the nine hole stroke event with 39-9 (30) on a count back from Peter Hyden 52-22 (30).
Apologies to Ian Pollard in suggesting he was a left hander, maybe he should try it sometimes!
This Wednesdays nine hole competition is a stableford event, the recent rains have produced a good couch grass cover on most fairways, come and enjoy the friendship hit off is from 9am.
Frank Severinos first shot on the 16 east earned him the super pin prize and a well-earned birdie in last Tuesdays stableford comp at Rich River.
Alas the other holes didn’t go to plan, with Peter Anderson’s 40 points just outside the top 12 and seeing him miss out on the bonus points.
