TAMWORTH VETERANS GOLF COMPETITION – 8th DECEMBER 2017.
We had 62 members play for our morning golf/Christmas Party/Luncheon on a beautiful morning. On completion of our golf and prior to an excellent lunch being served, President Paul welcomed all members and invited guests to our special day, and also thanked our CEO Andrew for the support we receive, not just from him, but also from Melissa and Kira in the office. Paul also thanked our golf pro Scott, Tiffany and their team for the assistance they give to us on a weekly basis. The scoring was pretty good overall and very competitive, particularly for our major prizes. First place and winner of the largest ham went to Bill O’Brien with a score of 23pts. Second place and winner of the next ham, went to Glen Crosby with a score of 22pts on a count back, with John Frame also on 22pts in third spot and winning the final ham. The next three placings all won Lion Christmas Cakes, but they had to endure quite a series of count backs to do so, with the winners all scoring 21pts being Bob Sherwood, Bruce Grogan & Robert Black. The remaining players who also scored 21pts but missed out on a major prize were Keith Crapp & Andrew Frost, although they did win a golf ball. From there, the ball list went down a further 21 places, being 29 places in all with the expanded field, representing almost half of our players. Next on the list with 20pts came Frank Henry, Peter Coombes, Neville Cross & Allan King. We then had just the one player scoring 19pts which seemed a bit odd on such a day, but that player was Lars Unger. Coming in with 18pts were Peter Izod, Duncan Butler, Peter Kay & Trevor Hill. We then had a host of players scoring 17pts being, Rod Doolan, Col McInnes, Glynn Gray, Gordon Way, Lindsay Hobson, Greg Wilkinson, Danny Lewis, Stephen Bright, Neill Dabinett & Laurie Boules. Finalising the ball list, again after a number of count backs, scoring 16pts came Tony Gray & Dick Sherwood.
Nearest the Pin on the 16th hole was won by Trevor Hill.
Our hard working Professional then made the presentation of his trophy, which is for the most consistent golfing member for the year, who played at least 20 Friday morning Competitions throughout the calendar year. This trophy is presented by Scott each year and is something he does “off his own bat” to show his appreciation for the support our members give to him and his business. The winner this year, with an incredible average score of 17.10 per game, over all of the games he played, was James Murray. Well done James, that is a great average!!!
Next week we our normal hit off times of 7.00 – 9.00am from the 1st Tee.
