FOURSOMES CHAMPIONSHIPS COMPLETED FOR 2012
The foursome championships of the Grenfell Golf Club are over for another year.
After being washed out last month, the 36 holes were played last Sunday, the weather co-operating with a nice sunny day.
Only 6 Pairs saw fit to compete in this event, which is not good, but on reflection and finding last years record of the event the number is twice as good as last year when only three pairs competed.
So well done to all competitors.
Foursomes championships for this year are Allan Logan and Steve Walker with the scores of 80/87 = 167.
Second place in this year’s event were winners Brian Brown and Eroll Perkins on 82/87 = 169, and third place was Joel Conron and Peter Mawhinney with 96/88 = 184.
Handicap winners were Joel Conron and Peter Mawhinney 74 ½ + 66 ½ = 141 nett.
Two other Pairs Brian Brown and Eroll Perkins 68 + 73 = 141 nett and Allan Logan and Steve Walker 74 ½ + 66 ½ = 141 nett, also had the popular score of 141 nett but were beaten on a count back.
Next best pair was Mark Troth and Martin Starr on 84 + 62 = 146 nett and third place was filled by Brian Hughes and Steve Mitton 76 + 71 = 147 nett.
Ball competition went to Allan and Steve and there was no nearest the pin.
Might I be so bold as to suggest to the board of directors that the honour boards be up-dated so that Allan and Steve’s names are displayed in their rightful place.
After all, 8 years is a long time.
Last Wednesday was fine and sunny and 14 golfers were enticed out to play the usual stableford.
Rob Holland led the field with 36 pts.
Four players tried for second place, Peter Harris, David Simpson, Phill Simpson and Brian Brown all had 35 pts and Bob Bassett came 3rd on 33 pts.
All these place getters won balls in the ball competition but there was no nearest the pin prize.
Saturdays golf was also a stableford and 12 players teed off to play in one grade. Phil Barr was one better than his handicap with 37 pts, Eroll Perkins was next best on 35 pts and Geoff Gravenmaker, back with a new hip, came 3rd on 33 pts.
The ball competition went to 31pts less Jamie Logan and the nearest the pin went begging.
There was no social golf again last week owing to the foursome championships.
A stroke round is scheduled for tomorrows golf and for Sunday July 29 a stableford will be played.
Sunday is also the final of the Sureshot GPS 4BBB at Forbes.
In the tipping competition and after 19 rounds Greg Oliver is leading on 176pts, Danny Fanning is next on 173pts and Jan Myers is 3rd on 168pts.
L Mitton is still leading in the junior comp with 171pts, C Brebner and Harrison Starr are equal on 166pts and B Holmes is close behind on 165pts.
Duty Members for this Sunday Meat Market are Brian Hughes and Jan Myers.
