2017 Esplanade Hotel Super League Grand Final Results
After having survived a near-death experience in their semi-final of the 2017 Esplanade Hotel Super League last week (beating the PARS on count-back), this week the BUNKERS team has powered their way to victory over the FAIRWAYS in the Grand Final.
Holding a commanding lead going into the final round of the grand-final week, the BUNKERS were assured of victory due to the difficult conditions that faced the contestants in Saturday. In fact, neither of the team scores changed from those set after Thursday.
The BUNKERS team, comprising Wendy Parker, Jon Smith, Ken Smirk, Kev Castwood, Denis Wallace, Hans Hoefler and Paul Luck, scored a best 3-person total of 108 points, to easily account for the FAIRWAYS on 88 points. They were capably led by the experienced Jon Smith (37 points), with solid contributions from Denis Wallace (36) and Kev Castwood (35). Peter Walsh posted the best score for the FAIRWAYS with 33 points, and was supported by Andy Bassett (28) and Brian Fennessy (27).
The Esplanade Hotel player of the Grand-final was Jon Smith, with his fine 37 posted in wet conditions on Tuesday.
The Club would like to take the opportunity to thank Dylan Clark from the Esplanade Hotel for again generously sponsoring the event. Thanks also to George Misson who did the lion’s share of running the event. Next year the event will be held earlier in the year to take advantage of the better weather.
The 2017 Super League season will wind up with a social 9-hole shotgun start on this coming Sunday 20th August, to be followed by a BBQ lunch. The event will be generously sponsored by George Misson and Janet Kolotelo with some good prizes on offer. Get your names down on the booking sheet ASAP.
