Maclean golf medley Stableford

Thursday, June 24

A field of approaching 60, including traveling golfers from Victoria and Queensland, enjoyed an excellent day played in blustery conditions and true quick greens.

In Section A, Milo James made light of the difficult pin placements to win the day with 39 points. Just behind was Geoffrey Dickinson on 37 points.

In Section B both Bill Rorke and the ever-maturing Theodore Sheppard came in with a magnificent 42 points with Bill just pipping Theo on countback.

Nearest the pins on Thursday were Rod Smith, Don Skaines, Ted Harvey, and David Bruton.

Thistle hole was won by Brendan Payne in a particularly difficult pin position. Ball prizes down to 34 points with last week’s winner Paul King just missing out.

Saturday, June 26

The men’s Foursomes Championship was played on a day when the weather varied by the minute from cold and wet to bright warm sunshine and the foursome field managed to complete the 27 holes in generally good humor.

Not for the faint-hearted, played from the black markers, partnerships either gelled or just didn’t click. One partnership that did was that of Fraser Marsh and Mark Rae their gross score was at least a  full eight shots better than the rest of the field to come out worthy winners of the Shield.

The nett winners were David Bruton partnered by Graham Edwards with runners-up prize to Brian Ivelli and Scott McNeilly.

The 18 holes Stableford for the non foursomes players picked up a healthy field. Bob Harvey took out the big cash prize with 37 points. Kylie Ryan was just edged out in a very close countback.

Following close behind was the ever-present Theodore Sheppard who must be getting worried about his pending handicap reduction. 

Nearest the pin prizes to Terry Adcock, Andrew Cowling, John Harrison, and Richard Crawford Ross.

Again, the regulars at Maclean were pleased to see visitors from Victoria sampling the delights of our greens and fairways
