Men’s Club Championship Results – Saturday 24th October 2015
The 2015 Men’s Club Championships were concluded today with the third and final round played in ideal golfing conditions. Fast greens and tricky pin positions were the order of the day, with many golfers coming unstuck having reached the greens!
Ken Wardle proved his mettle, playing another solid round to scoop the pool by winning A Grade, the Club Championship and the Senior Championship with a three round score of 252. Geoff McDonald finished runner up with a creditable 256. Congratulations on a great performance Ken!
B Grade was won by the steady Peter Walsh on 257 from Kevin Castwood on 259. Peter put in three very consistent rounds with scores of 87, 84 and 86, to prove the old adage that slow and steady often wins the race!
C grade went to the old stager, Merv Stubbs. The 86 year old proved too good for his somewhat younger opponents, playing a very steady final round to win with 290, 4 shots clear of the junior Ryan Thomas. It is the 4th time in his long career that Merv has won C grade. Well done once again Merv!
D Grade, being played as a stableford event for the first time, saw Bert Borg take home the chocolates, with a fine 3 round total of 96. Runner up was John Eabry with 90 points.
The R.E. Cameron Trophy for the best 3 round nett score in the Club Championship was won by Kevin Castwood who posted a great 212 total. Peter Brownlie finished runner up with a total of 215. Obviously the snake on the track between the 17th green and the 18th tee did not put Kevin off his game too much!
