Saturday saw the annually sponsored trophy by DA Busters Development Assistance Services, and as usual it is an event not often played that takes unique teamwork to succeed. The 4BBB multiplier shows that a pairs' team effort of both scores, will either score huge or record a duck egg as the result on each hole.
Powering on again was none other than Bernie Parker with the world class halfback Eric Kuhn as his pint-sized jockey riding high on Mr Parker's success. This eclectic partnership scored an impressive 80 aggregate points, recording 12 points off two consecutive holes with Bernie birding two on the trot for four points whilst Eric parred both for the lock of three points. Nice.
Runners up were husband and wife pairing of Peter and Jeanette Elliott who also scored hot at times, but with four zips were left wondering what might have been, a mere one shot behind the leaders on 79 total points. Jeanette in this effort claimed the individual trophy.
Peter and Jeanette led off the balls with their 79 points, then followed by Darrell Cassidy and Robert Bates with 76 points and John Hawkins and Brian wales on 74 points. Our Bendigo Bank Hole in One did not go off but again a hot close shot went to Kevin Hoppe at 1.7m
Word also filtered back from last week where Kevin was a mere six inches from an albatross. Our last albatross was some 20 years ago by Robert Stevenson.
LAST week a wonderful roll-up saw some of our really keen beginners who have been putting the time in with their friends and also visiting Pro Garry Begg, rolled up for a nine hole comp.
Our winner, with an impressive 40 nett, was Angela Field. The strength of where this group is at is not in the actual nett score, moreover the bunched nature of scoring with all ladies going hard. Our runner-up was Kathy Sanderson, only one shot back at 41 nett, and then came Jackie Solah with 43 nett.
YES, that's right, a three-way count back amongst two blokes decided the Midweek Comp. Remembering our 12 hole layout is a par 24 stableford points.
Getting it done with only one point over par (25 points) were Peter Steinke, Bill Kilda and Peter Steinke. The numbers have it and Peter Steinke snuck home in a countback. Peter won the bikkies along with the right to deduct one shot from his handicap.
Next back was Mr Consistency Ron Kerr with 24 points playing most weeks at or about his handicap. Ron also claimed our mystery ball draw prize.
- With Easter upon us, golf will continue on Saturday. The gents play for the Damian Shea Gutter Vac Trophy in a stableford event from lunch time.
- The ladies also have a stableford set for Saturday under a Club Trophy.
- Our Bendigo Bank Hole in One prize will be in play for both fields with a $1000 bank account awaiting the next successful member.
