Club results for 2/3/24

  • 2 March 2024
  • Peter Watson

Lewis Wilson and Pete Green produced stellar performances to shine on an overcast Saturday (March 2).

Lewis carded a fine net 66 off the white tees to win the Pat Melville Memorial Trophy which is played by those 55 and over in memory of our former president, while Pete scorched round the course in a net 67 to head the younger brigade.

In fact, Pete's one-under 71 off the stick was the his best round for about 30 years. It was set up by a blistering front 9 33 which included birdies on both par fives and both par threes. He cooled off slightly to come home in 38.

Lewis - playing off a 19 handicap - started with an eight on No 1 but recovered to go out in 44. He finished strongly with a back nine 41, which included a two on No 14 and a tap in birdie at No 17 after a pinpoint approach.

The veteran leftie finished just a shot ahead of Andrew Craig who posted an excellent net 67 playing off a 23 handicap.

Paul McCrae usually sticks to 9-hole competitions but showed he can still foot it over 18 holes by finishing third with a net 69, which included a two at No 5.

Another old leftie, Peter Watson, was fourth on 70 after shooting a gross 77.

He was followed by Aaron Kotua, Andy Isle and Bryan Ramsey on 71 apiece. Mick Leggett and Steve Turnell rounded out the top nine with 72 each.

While Pete took home a handsome jackpot for his two twos, Lewis, Paul and Jim McMullan were also in the money with one each.

Others to shoot under 8 off the bat were Andy (77) and Dean Goodman (79).

Lloyd Moyle was the best of the 9-holers with 17 stableford points off the back nine, while wife Sue had the thrill of a birdie two on No 14.  

Next Saturday (March 9) we play the fourth and final round of the Stubberfield Cup, which is a net plus putts round off the white tees. The 9-holers play a par round off the front nine.
