John Eglitis: Wins Tuross Head stableford golf competition


On one of those days of mild, sunny, balmy weather when golf just had to be played, John Eglitis took full advantage of the conditions by winning the Tuross Head Country Club men's Saturday stableford competition, with a score of 38 points.

However he did not have it all on his own, and had to share the victory podium with Martin Booth and Peter Dugan, who all handed in cards with the same 38 points.

John Eglitis was awarded the victory on a countback.

Nearest the pins were won by:

A grade golfer Martin Booth on the 4th hole with 2.74 m.

John Eglitis won the 4th hole with 2.81 m for the C grade division.

The Far South Coast Veteran Golfers Association held their monthly match at Tuross Head on Friday June 29th with a good attendance, and men and lady players also enjoyed an excellent lunch, following the 18 hole stableford competition.
