Sunday’s annual Police Charity Golf Day again proved popular with local golfers, with a field of 108 golfers joining in one of the town’s most popular charity events.
The day was once again a credit to organiser Jo Palma and his band of merry helpers providing drinks and food out on the course.
It was also a “burglar’s day out” with many golfers with huge handicaps coming out of the woodwork.
The best net score and the main prize winners on the day were the team of Scott Mayne, Wan Sipatsa, Richard Maple and Tony Brown with a net score of 55¼.
They were followed by runners-up Jeb Bishop, Ethan Black, Dave Watson and Slade Neale with 56 net.
The best scratch score was a 10-under par 61 by Jacob Ryan, Gary Dunn, Matt Russell and Brett Tristram. In second place, four shots behind on 65, was Alec Fraser, Mark Fraser, Jade Townsend and Luke Johnson.
The best ladies score was 61¾ by the team of Brenda Fugar, Karen Manns, Jackie Smith and Donna Prendergast and the best mixed score 56¼ by Gary Wilkin, Jannine Wilkin, Jarrod Marsden and Marlene Wynd.
In other golf news from the week the eighth round of the Captain’s Trophy was played on Saturday with 12 players taking to the course.
The winner on the day, with a brilliant two-under par round of 69 and a nett score of 61, was Gary Hay. Second place, a whopping six shots behind, was Colin Eves winning on a countback from Mick Bannister with 67 points.
Nearest the pins were won by Don Heather, (visiting from Newcastle) on the third and Gary Hay, topping off his great day by winning the 7th and 15th holes.
Next Saturday is a stableford day sponsored by BCD Projects and Sunday is Langford Day, a mixed Canadian.—Out of bounds
