Tuross Vets played an event unique to the Club this morning when 58 starters teed off in what is known locally as a Special Par event. This game provides extra reward for a score under handicap where multiple plusses can be scored. Results on the day were as follows:
1st: Lance Shadbolt with an excellent score of +5.
2nd: Errol Soden on +3 on count back.
3rd: Peter McRae also on +3 and also on count back.
Ball or Chocolate:
Gerry Magill and Kevin Dukes on +3, Lyn Benger, Robert McKirdy, Greg Ware and Gayle Macalpine on +2, Des Jackson, Paul Pereira and Allen Gannon on +1, and finally Bruce Ware, Sandra Hanlon, Graham Pratt and John Cox who all had squares.
The Vets President, Ian Manton, suffering at the hands of the handicapper took out the Bradman award this week.
Nearest the Pins:
4th: Michael Kermode.
6th: Gerry Magill.
Ladies 7th: Gail Rogers.
Men’s 7th: Greg Smith.
Terry Challender won the award with a shot closest to the centre string line.
The game next week is an Aggregate Stroke - Secret Partners event with registration in the downstairs sports bar area from 7.45am and a shotgun start at 8.30am
