Another glorious early winters day embraced the greens at Harden Country Club last Saturday and a solid field made the most of it, along with a visitor or two in the day's combatants.
Again, the course bit back, with conditions tough for scoring in the Club Mixed Medley Stableford.
All except for one man. Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man. Tom Poole is just having none of this fuss about winter, no run, fast greens blah blah.
Tom Poole shot his handicap in a canter and blitzed the field by 4 whole shots to his nearest competitor. A great day out and Tom earned himself some club spend vouchers for his troubles.
Runner-up was daylight and then came clubhouse leader for most of the afternoon in Ev Shea on 32 points.
With every passing minute, Ev was getting her victory speech ready, but alas, she missed her chance to corner the microphone for a fireside chat with the masses.
Evelyn led off the ball comp, with balls going back as far as 29 points. Ball claimers were Ev, Tam Kennedy (31), Craig Filmer (30), Michael Baldry, Graham Martin-Dye and Bernard Parker, all with 29 points.
We still have a couple of late games that were being completed on Sunday before we can announce the next round. If you are alive, then watch the tournament sheet on the notice board and make sure you arrange a mutually convenient time and day with your next opposition in this knockout draw.
Pepe's Duck Run - Week 1
Welcome on board to Pepe's Ducks, who have quite a presence out at Cunningar in the Harden Community. Pepe is sponsoring our casual 9 hole weekend comp running over the next 12 weeks.
Each week we will be awarding a Pepe's Duck to best man, best lady, best junior and the Bradman's out of the 9 hole scores entered.
Play as often as you want for $8, and each time you enter, a same day drink voucher accompanies you before or after your round. Great value for some great fun.
This week our best male score was Tom Poole, who put his money up before his exemplary 18 hole round to cover his front 9. Tom wins a plucked duck for his 20 points
Our champion lady and winner of an unplucked duck was Ev Shea for her 16 points. No juniors played but our live and unplucked duck this week went to Louise Hufton.
This event had a great attendance and can only grow. Feel like 9 holes, members or social members? Come and have a dig and away you could walk with a duck!
