Plains Producer, Wednesday May 15, 2013
A slightly healthier field fronted last
Saturday for our Marc’s Meats Trophy
Stroke round, which was won, along with
all A grade accolades, by mighty Merv
Hameister, who clouted a winning score
of 82/70. Young Willum Parkin (73/71)
chased him home hot-foot, leaving wild
Bill Lokan (83/76) to claim third place.
Standing around with faces like so many
dropped pies were P. Thompson (87/78),
D. Taylor (95/82) and R. Carney (97/84).
B grade bouquets bounced upon
the bonce of bonny Bill Goudie (89/72),
who headed Dean Trickett (95/73) who,
with a handicap of 22, somehow forced
his way back into these hallowed ranks.
Be that as it may, let it be written that
Graham “Emu” Ackland (89/75) claimed
third with no disputations. Left to sort
all this out among themselves were D.
Rodgers (100/76), W. Nagle (94/80), A.
Manuel (101/80), J. Michael (100/81),
M. Smith (96/81), W. Berry (100/83) and
D. Barnett (101/84).
John Newton made a very welcome
and victorious return to our C grade
ranks, rolling home with a winning score
of 100/74. The ever-resurgent Trevor
Gilmour (107/75) claimed second place
while Peter Friedrichs (100/77) slipped
quietly into third. It all got a bit out of hand
after that, but then, it’s only a game, in-
nit? K. McFarlane (where’s he been?!)
101/78, Chris Hahesy (102/81), Moya
Hayes (108/82) and storming home to
secure last spot, M. Hahesy (125/97).
A single, solitary kosher Birdie was
struck by Graham Ackland at the 10th,
while Nearest The Pins were held by Bill
Goudie (third), Merv Hameister (eighth),
Trevor Gilmour (10th), Bill Parkin (15th)
and Ron Carney (17th). Golfer of the
Winter points went to Merv Hameister
(6), Bill Parkin (5), Bill Goudie (4), Dean
Trickett (3), John Newton (2) and all the
other eager space cadets, one each.
Round Two of the President’s Trophy
saw Merv Hameister beat John Michael
3/2, while in the Captain’s Trophy Bill
Berry absolutely demolished Peter
Thompson (forfeit). This Saturday we’ll
conduct a more sober Stableford round
for the Lower North Electrical Trophy,
Judge Peter Freidrichs presiding over
matters concerning who starts when and
from where, with Peter Thompson ready
to apply the good ol’ silicon to tearful
eyes at the 19th.
Last Sunday the club hosted the
53-strong field for the annual Rotary Club
of Elizabeth Four-Person Ambrose event,
which produced the following results:
“Gross Winners” (how appropriate!) in
the form of the “Mangrove Munching
Monsters” Merv Hameister, Rick Camp-
bell, Brett Fitton and Ron Carney, with a
score of 69 off the stick. The Nett Win-
ners were Team Nagle - fellow Nurglers
Wayne Nagle, Phil Robertson, Digby
Addison and Dave Rodgers with 61.75.
Nett Runner Up was Team H, Chris and
Mike Hahesy, Moya Hayes and Austin
Henstridge (62.25), while Nett second
runner-up was the President’s Push - Ian,
Tate and Brad Michael plus Jonathon
Price (63). The Nett Service Club winner
was the Maitland Rotary Club’s Wendy
and Kerry Nelligan, David Baker and
Merv Hameister blasted the Mens’
Longest Drive while Joan Anderson
delicately smashed hers to claim the
Ladies’. The Men’s Nearest The Pin was
claimed by “Jumping” John Curnow on
the third, leaving Moya Hayes to clean
up the Women’s NTP at the eighth. There
was also a nine-hole segment, Nett win-
ner of which was the team comprising
Mahrianne Haughey, Nicole Murphy,
Brett Dattan and Alan Murphy. It was
a highly successful day which rounded
out what must surely have been one of
the Club’s busiest weeks this year so
far and full credit to the efforts of Trevor
Reid and both Yvonne and Geoff. Leo for
presenting the course in such fine fashion.

A small field of ladies started in the

the members are with him at this time.
Ten players set out on the quest for
Owen’s Holy Grail last Saturday, as the
first round of the Freebairn Putter got
Spectators in their crowds arrived to
watch another display of golfing at its best.
Owen has played host to this event since
1966. President, Peter Sullivan, said he
had been trying to win the event for over
25 years. He had been runner-up many
times but finally triumphant winning last
Congratulations to captain, Brett Fit-
ton, who managed to hold his early lead
and win the day with a 79 off the stick nett
66. Vice captain, ‘Super Chook’ Ince, was
runner-up 90/68 winning on a CB from
Owen young gun, Jake Harkness, 104/68.
Then came president, Peter Sullivan, with
107/73, Les Hean 98/77, Len Beaty and
Ian Freebairn retired after nine, Andrew
Ince – injured – DNF. Kathy Harkness
mixed it with the fellas playing nine holes.
There were no signs of bird flu as
big hitting chicken farmer, Greg Gaze,
returned playing for handicap. The bird
man ruffled some feathers with a much
improved 98 off the stick, coming home
strong in the back nine to break 100.
Vice captain, Glen Ince, was bullied
out of the Longest Drive on the first by
captain, Brett Fitton. Vets Longest Drive
went to...is it a bird?...Is it a plane?...No!
It’s Les Hean with another enormous drive
on the sixth. At this rate the club may need
to test for performance enhancers! Pros
Approach on the 18th went to Brett Fitton.
Mondays with Merv saw ‘Super
Chook’ Glen Ince win the day with 41
Stableford points, then came Merv Hami-
ester 33, Brett Fitton 32, and a disgruntled
president, Peter Sullivan, 29.
The clubroom was buzzing after the
first Freebairn round as members, fami-
lies and locals stayed back for dinner. It
was good to see Life Member, Beth Hark-
ness, show her support to the club proving
that all members, past and present, are
greatly valued. Thank you to everyone
who came and for the volunteers who
helped bring the night together.
Members wait in anticipation as the
scrapes undergo a major refurbishment
this week. Course manager, Les Hean,
and treasurer, Ian Freebairn, are co-
ordinating the project with the specialised
help of local Graham Duncan.
A big blow to the heart of the ‘Plains
as former Club Champion, Ron Page,
has been sidelined with injury. The club
is hopeful for a return later in the season
and wishes Ron a speedy recovery.
Next Saturday: Stableford round, tee
off 12pm, Mondays with Merv, Stableford
round tee off 12pm, all welcome.
Remember, it’s not polite to pick up
a lost ball while it is still rolling.

THEAdelaide Plains Football League has named A
grade and Under 17 squads to select association teams
from in coming weeks ahead of the Landmark Cup at
Jamestown on June 8.
A grade coach, Ash Barnett, said the large senior
squad was brimming with talent.
“We’ve probably named a few more than in years
gone by but I thought it was a better way of doing it
as you get a closer look at everyone,” he said.
“There’s some quality getting around the league at
the moment, that’s for sure.
“There’s a good mixture there.”
Barnett will be looking to include plenty of youth
in the 24-man squad, which will travel to Jamestown.
“We’ll be trying to field a fast team for one thing,
as well as blokes who are capable of kicking goals,”
Both squads will train on Wednesday next week.
The APFL Under 15 team will play this Sunday
in the Central Zone Under 15 Carnival at Brinkworth
Oval. The carnival involves teams from the Adelaide
Plains Football League, North Eastern Football League,
Northern Areas Football Association and the Yorke
Peninsula Football League.
