Veterans Golf



Once again the scoring was outstanding on Friday morning where we had 45 members playing the back nine. Winner for the morning with the terrific score of 24pts was Gordon Way. He played extremely well to be even par after 7 holes, but went off the boil a bit for the last 2 holes with a bogey and a double to finish his round. For his great score Gordon chose a Pro Shop Voucher. In second place with 21pts was Keith Crapp on a count back from Wayne Chillingworth. The ball list then went down a further 17 places, with those players scoring 20pts being, Andrew Horton, Rod Doolan, Gary Bryant, Neville Thomas & Bruce Grogan. Next on 19pts were, Jerry Anderson, Dick Sherwood, John Frame, Ian Trickett, Ren Chen, Gerry Dunn & Peter Coombes. We finished the ball list with a whole series of count backs with 18pts and the winners were Frank Henry, Phil Heffernan, Peter Izod, Paul McDougall & Alan Rankins.

Nearest the Pin on the 16th hole was won by Ian Bath.
