    Todays Stableford competition was sponsored by Mungalli Dairy and we thank them again for their continuing support, especially as they may be going to give us a hand with the new shirts.

    Even though the weather left a bit to be desired today, we still had over 20 players competing for coverted Mungalli Dairy vouchers.

    Despite the inclement weather there were still some pretty good scores.

    In the men, the best of these was Wayne Crowley with a handy thirty eight points.

    Well done Crowls, a good effort considering the day.

    Second place on thirty five or six (not sure which) was Bruce Hunter.

    It would not be a golf day without a count back, but today’s was easy being a Stableford.

    Brothers Grant Miller and Warrick Howarth both finished with thirty two point but Grant couldn’t maintain the pace he set in the first nine and Warrick managed to pip him in the home straight.

    The ladies struggled with the conditions today but Tracey Dickinson, with thirty points, took the honours from Alicia English.

    The Captains today were told, from now on, a Nearest the Pin on the third shot for the ladies, was not on, as putting to win this was not the idea of this competition, which by the way, was won by Alicia English. (Thank heavens she didn’t sink the putt).

    Nearest the Pin for the men was won by visitor Marty Ots on 5/14.

    Bob Collyer won both 1/10 and second shot on 6/15, a good thing some part of his game was working.

    Our two visitors today, Peter Watt and Marty Ots from Half Moon Bay Club enjoyed the day and were very complementary regarding the course and greens.

    You’re welcome anytime guys!

    Next week is the BCF Innisfail three Ball Medley Ambrose.

    It’s a visitors day so get your team there at nine for nine thirty.

    See ya! 

    In other news:

     A bit of disappointing news at the last meeting was that Bendigo Bank, who withdrew their competition sponsorship a while back, were now not continuing their tee advertising.

    We have asked them to reconsider, but if you are in the bank you might mention that you are disappointed.
