Last Saturday’s gathering of 29 players tackled
a surprise Stableford round, joined by visitors John
Pengilly, Dave Rice, a man called Matt and one Glen
Keast. Three pairs played their opening Summer Cup
rounds, with Ian Michael putting in a 12.5 micron
performance to better Wayne Nagle 3 & 2. Peter
Friedrichs was too good for Scott Michael (at what
looks, in The Book, to have been decided on the
19th. play-off - just a wild guess folks!), while Dave
“Curry Muncher” Barnett proved too wily for John
Michael winning 4 & 3.
The A graders were given a golfing lesson by Bill
Lokan (37), his star pupil one mighty Merv. Hameister
(36) with Ian Michael getting an A-minus for his 35
points. Then came M. Loy (34), T. Michael (31) and
way off in the distance, D. Taylor (18).
From the B grade gaggle emerged a dominant
Dave Barnett (39), leaving Scott Michael (33) to rob
Ron Carney of 2nd, spot courtesy of the Count. Those
for whom “a round of golf” was purely euphemistic
were W. Berry (32), G. Ackland (31), W. Nagle (30),
D. Rodgers (DNF) and for Messrs. A . Leaver and
J. Pengilly, naught but a big “X”.
Things were far more willing in the C grade,
with that serial victor Digby Addison (39) storming
back to his monogrammed top spot on the podium.
Gazing up at this golfing giant with undistilled awe
were Greg Sonntag (35) and Kip Dunstan (34),
who clobbered Peter Friedrichs on a count back.
Stranded in the mire were Louise Michael (32), C.
Heslop (29), J. Michael (28), D. Trickett (27), Jill
Taylor (26), B. Fremantle (24), Noah Barnett (23)
and that mild-mannered meat manipulator M. Keast,
with yet another “X”.
Birdies were shot by Ron Carney on the 3rd.
and Scott Michael at the 8th. Nearest The Pins were
held by good old Ron on the 3rd., good old Scott on
the 8th., then Bill Lokan (10th) and “Mr. 12.5” Ian
Michael for a long, languid lob onto the 2nd. green.
According to The Book, no Player of the Summer
points were awarded amid all this non-stop action.
This Saturday we’ll tackle a Stroke round/Putting
Competition combo., with Austin Henstridge dealing
the cards before whoever Rob Veitch manages to
fill in for him deigns to officiate at the 19th.. Have
you shangaied some poor sod for the Ham & Turkey
2-person Ambrose on Sat. the seventh? - if not, start
offering bribes now.’
BALAKLAVA MID WEEK
A healthy field of 18 gathered for the fray, only
to be dominated by Greg Sonntag (42), a player
so laid back that it’s considered unwise to take a
seat behind his. A dynamic 41 by Dennis Goudie, in
cahoots with the Count, saw him prevail over Brian
Stewart, with the mechanical Mike Hahesy (40)
claiming fourth spot. Then came a trail of we little
spotty Herberts, namely W. Berry (40), W. Goudie
(39), Chris Hahesy (38), M. Jones (37), A. Henstridge
(37), J. Michael (35), Louise Michael (34), J. Clark
(34), Judy Wandel (32), J. Curnow (32), D. Trickett
(29), Jill Taylor (28), Moya Hayes (24) and Genni
Edwards (20). Nearest The Pins were held by Bill
Berry on the third, Chris Hahesy at the eighth and
Bill Goudie on the 10th. Bill also scored a Birdie on
the 13th, as did John Curnow at the 16th and Brian
Stewart on the seventh.
In a field of 21 players, Ed Manning had one
of those days that all Golfers are hoping for, a day
with few mistakes if any scoring 47 points to win
Thursday’s Stableford event. Bob Hilliers cred-
ible 44 points put him in second place while Gary
Woods carded 42 to finish third from Cliff Applebee
41, Kieth Kluske & George Dahlitz 38 c/b all being
Others to do well were Dennis Hawke 38, Dennis
37, Geoff Ralph, Errol Branson 36, Barry Schwartz,
Warren Isgar 35. There was only one Birdie for the
day, Warren Isgar on the 9th also winning the only
nearest to the pin on that hole.
Saturdays Par competition attracted 19 players
with Cliff Applebee who has been “Mentioned in
dispatch” a few times lately winning the day with
+6 from John Mitchell second on a countback from
Doug Cooper (3rd) & Barry Schwartz all with +5 while
Anton Noack picked up the last prize on a countback
from Bob Charman both with +4. Others to make
the better half were Helen Bell, Leigh Durdin, Roen
Cameron +3 & Wally Jackson +2, George Dahlitz
had a monopoly on the nearest to the pins winning
both the 4th & 14th but sadly 3 putted the 4th from
around 10ft while Bradley Zerna won the nearest
doubt with an Eagle. Birdies: Mick Nicholls 12th,
John Mitchell 1st,3rd & 17th, Bradley Zerner 1st (
Eagle on 9th) Leigh Durdin 9th & 16th.
