Iluka Veterans golf

Tuesday March 5

Today’s event was the monthly medal Stroke sponsored by fellow Vets, our treasurer Jeff Turner and vice captain Barry Brims, both do an outstanding job for the Vets and thanks to them.

Played in two Divisions in perfect weather conditions with the course in pristine condition it is apparent from the majority of scores that the course had a convincing win. A small field of 29 players braved the Stroke event, with the winner’s scoring were very well and Club Pro, Mark Addey carded a brilliant 65 gross.


Winner: Div 1 – Neil Grady 72 nett, r/up: Div 1 – Geoff Prentice 73 nett on c/b from playing partner Frank Poore

Winner: Div 2 – James Kentwell 68 nett on c/b from Roy Ellery, r/up: Div 2 – Roy Ellery 68 nett.

NTP’s: 1 / 10 – Drew a blank in these excellent conditions; 6 / 15 – Paul Hansen; 8 / 17 – Barry Brims last group (sponsor, match committee man might be a suspect courtesy ball?); Roy Ellery – 3rd shot 3 / 12.  

George Schynko a very honest winner.

Barry Robbie Mars Bar & Porcelain Cup winner was former captain, Chris Richards, with a very humble score which will remain confidential.

The ball rundown was shared by 9 players on 75 nett or better with lady Vet, Kate Brims, very prominent with a nett 71. Well done Kate.

Special mention to Ian Powell visitor from Northern Queensland who is on his way again and we will welcome him back next year for his monthly stay; safe travels and all the best.

Special notice must be made that our pies madman, Dave Burns (a member of Greenkeeper Doug Turner’s army of volunteers and always on a tractor) played a sensational drive on the Par 5 ninth only to have it called back because he teed off after Kate Brims from the ladies tee. He duffed his next drive 15 metres with steam coming out of his ears. He refused to buy for the bar even though we had voted in this new resolution only 5 minutes prior.
