The 2019 Inter Mine Golf Challenge took place on Saturday in perfect weather for the 144 golfers who took part.
The numbers were down this year compared to the past few years events with the drought and recent redundancies at Endeavor Mine taking their toll.
CSA Glencore were well supported by a large number of players and were awarded with the winner’s trophies at the end of the day for their combined efforts.
Peak Gold Mines was second and Endeavor placed third overall.
The first three mine teams in were Greg Clark, Gary ‘Parrot’ Dunn and Jacob Ryan who finished with a score of 54 2/3 net (representing Peak); Darryn Lord, Patrick Dillon and Chris Gilbert from CSA (finished with a score of 55 net) and from Endeavor, Craig ‘Porky’ Dillon, Al Sharpe and J Hurford were next best with 58 net.
The best men’s team consisted of Josh Howarth, Greg Buckley and Craig Kelly with a score of 53 net.
The Hunter family took out the mixed team title with Mat, Carly and Jeff having a handy 55 1/6 net score for CSA.
Robynne Morton, Marlene Wynd and Wan Sipatsa combined well to be the best women’s team on 64 5/6 net.
The Nearest the Pin prizes for the men went to Stephen Scahill, Brad Coleman, Dayne Gardiner, Kingsley Proudlove and Jacob Ryan. The longest drive was recorded by Jacob Ryan and Alec Fraser had the straightest drive of the day.
Tina Gordon, Jannine Wilkin, Karen Walsh, Sally Bannister and Chloe Stone were the ladies Nearest the Pin winners with Susan Goonrey having the straightest drive and Melanie Cummins recorded the longest drive.
The day was enjoyed by all with many first time visitors vowing to come back again next year.
