As the warmer weather fast approaches, golfers are getting the clubs out of the garage and gearing up for spring golf. With fields starting to swell it has been the regular golfers that have made the winners circle over the past week despite incredibly strong winds on Saturday.
Regular players like Phil Patricks, Simon Allen, George Froeschl, Dieter Seubert and Alex Childs have all hit form as the course greens up and the recently cored greens gradually get back to normal.
So let's recap the weekend of golf. On Saturday September 28, a single stableford event saw solid scores and strong fields. David O'Brien (visitor from Mollymook Golf Club) won the day with 40 points from Dieter Seubert with 39 points. Ball comp winners went down to 29 points (that's how hard the course was in the wind). Nearest the pin on the 4th was Dave Paterson and on the 11th Heikki Evans (great form player of late). The A grade longest drive on the 15th (with an absolute sizzler) went to long hitting Chris Brown. B grade was won by Prawit Prakotasung and C grade was taken out by the wind as no C grader hit the fairway.
On Sunday September 29 players competed in a single stableford with the Sunday regular George Froeschl winning the day with a strong 39 points from junior Alex Childs on 38 points. Ball winners went down to 34 points. Nearest the pins went to Peter Smith on the 9th and Phil Patricks on the 17th.
On Wednesday September 25 the competition was a single stableford medley in 3 grades. A grade winner was Phil Patricks with a great round of 41 points. B grade was taken out by Simon Allen with 36 points and C grade was won by Sam Scarlett with a round of the day 44 great points. Ball winners went down to 33 points. Nearest the pin on the 9th was taken out by Bart Joseph and on the 17th Phil Patricks was the closest.
Finally congratulations to the course committee, a dedicated band of volunteers and Ben for the work being done around the course. Plenty of rough being tidied up and the greens cored for the year. The course will be in tip top shape for the club championships and Cooma Open events coming up in October/November.
