Despite the rain and wind of the evening before, Wednesday morning proved to be a glorious day for golf with 68 starters registering for the 2 Person Ambrose event. The game also saw players vying for the Phyllis Starr "tin cup", a trophy sponsored by one of our real veteran golfers Tim Starr in memory of his late wife Phyllis. Winners on the day were as follows:
1st: Husband and wife Ian and Annette Manton winning the tin cup for the first time with a nett score of 30.
2nd: Solveig Olsson and Allen Gannon on 31.5.
3rd: Bruce Martin and Steve Johnston on 33.
Ball or Chocolate:
Peter McRae partnering Jennifer Gray, Paul and Robin Green, Kay and Alan McLeod, together with Robert McKirdy and Michael Kermode all on 33.75, Richard Kelly and David Williams on 34, and finally Ann and Terry Challender together with Ray and Margaret Downey on 35.
Tony Crook and Graham Pratt took out the honour this week.
Nearest the Pins:
4th: Richard Kelly.
6th: Greg Ware;
Ladies 7th: Leonie Snodgrass.
Men's 7th: Stephen Crossling.
Annette Manton hit the straightest shot adjacent to the string line this week.
Next week's event will be an American Foursomes game with registration in the downstairs sports bar area from 7.45am with a shotgun start at 8.30am.
