Saturday’s annual Langford Day Mixed Canadian golf event attracted a good field of 17 teams.
Garry and Jannine Wilkin teamed up to win the day with a score of 62 1/2 net.
Close on their heels were Mark Martin and Marlene Wynd who finished with 63 net to claim the runners-up prize.
In third place were Marc Fraser and Pat Po-lack (63 1/2 net) followed by Bill Fugar and Geraldine Francisco (64 net), Waylon Ward and Rachel Carey (65 1/2 net) and Mick and Sally Bannister were next best on 66 1/2 net.
Nearest the Pin prizes for the ladies were awarded to Robynne Morton, Sally Bannister, Jannine Wilkin, Wan Sipatsa and Sue Phillips.
Peter ‘China’ Brien was closest to the pin on two holes for the men while Bill Fugar and Marc Quinn picked up one prize each and none of the guys were able to claim the 11th pin.
All of the Ladies Golf scheduled matches went ahead last week with Sunday’s game turning out to be a bit damp for a few groups who played the last six holes in the rain and found that putting on mud didn’t help their score cards!
The predicted wet weather hadn’t however impacted the turn out with 15 lady golfers taking part in the Cobar Bowling & Golf Club day sponsored stableford.
It however interfered with play once the heavens opened up.
Getting to the 19th hole (the clubhouse) ahead of the rain were a number of place get-ters including the winner, Narelle Kriz with 36 points and two Nearest the Pin prizes (on the 3rd and 11th holes).
Angela Fryer placed second on 34 points followed by Fran Samios (33), Fay Hardwick (32) and Marlene Wynd on 30 points.
Geraldine Francisco, Ann Dunn and Julie Livingston were the other pin winners.
Last Wednesday’s Stroke round was won by Fay Hardwick, with 71 net, and she also picked up the putting prize on the day with 23 putts.
Geraldine Francisco was the runner-up on 72 net followed by a countback between Robynne Morton and Sally Bannister, both with 75 net.
There are a few changes to the golfers’ pro-gram book over the coming months and these changes will be posted on the golfers’ notice board at the club and on the Cobar Golfers Facebook page.
Today and Saturday’s games will be Par rounds and Sunday’s game will now be a Stroke game with the Captain versus President day to now be played at the end of the month.—T’d Off
