Beattie Memorial Day a huge success

Saturday’s Maclean Golf Rod Beattie Memorial Day was a fun golf day for all who played.
A good field competed for lots of trophies & novelty events on the day. The single Stableford was sponsored by Steve Burton from Riverside Barbers & the Beattie family. Two great prizes have been donated to the club by the sponsors for raffles to be held between now & Christmas to benefit both the juniors & the club.
Scores were tight at the top with a five way count back to determine the eventual winner. Christine Powell prevailed with 37 points (17) on the back, to defeat both Scott Tabor & Bob Harvey with Chris Moorehead & Graham Howard being relegated to the ball run down. Club balls went to 33 on a count back.
Nearest the Barbers Pole on the 2nd was Andrew Clarke, on the 7th Greg Doolan, on the 11th Paul Bamback & the 17th went to Joel Fredericks. Nearest the Wave on the 4th was Theo Sheppard, nearest the Part on the 8th was John Fong Kee, nearest the Curl on the 10th was Neville Cowling & nearest the Fringe on the 18th was Christine Picton. Nearest the barbers Chair on the 13th were Scott Tabor & Christina Picton. All novelty prize winners receive
6 golf balls courtesy of the sponsors.
Thursday’s Stableford was a stroll in the park for John O’Keeffe who’s 44 points blew the field away with, the recently returned from who knows where, Leigh Barrington being the runner up on 40 points. Pin winners on the day were Paul Moore, Leigh Barrington & Yamba member Dave Bruton.
Next Saturday we play the annual Red Ball 4 ball event which once again will be sponsored by Wayne Hinchcliffe.
Members please note the kitchen will not be open on Friday nights for some time & Friday night raffles have been suspended.
