Maclean golf

Saturday September 4

Monthly medal sponsored by Maclean Outdoors.  The last medal before the rearranged Club Championships brought out a bumper field just short of the magical hundred.

Golfers were rewarded with a severe test of black tees and challenging pin placements. The threat of rain held off, but the afternoon windy conditions did little to help scoring.  What was good in these self-isolating times was express golf. Rarely does a Stroke round last just over three hours, which was the norm today. Great marshalling work Paul and Wendy.

Only two players broke par in Grade A, David Cannon just edged out Alex Robison on c/b with a nett score of 71. Snapping at their heels was Geoff Grayson with a return to the podium on 72.

Ball prizes down to nett 75 (but not all of them).

In Grade B Corey Lewis found the course to his liking and sauntered round in a nett score of seven under par nett 65; well done Corey. Just behind with a 69 was Kathy Ayres who just shut out her partner Peter Wild on 70.

Ball prizes again down to most of those who scored 75 or better.

Grade C saw even more spectacular scoring with Joel Imeson annihilating the course with a nett 64. Gary Stockwell’s nett 67 seemed tame in comparison. Third place on pedestrian 73 was Michael Furlong.

Thanks to our continuing sponsors Maclean Outdoors.

Thursday September 2

A good midweek field enjoyed excellent playing conditions with masses of water being added to the course in the previous few days to counteract the dry and crusty conditions.

In A Grade Trevor Kapeen returned to pole position with a solid 38 points just edging out Greens Chairman Terry Adcock on c/b. Third on 37 points was Stephen McMahon just on count back from Trevor’s grandson Sam Kapeen and the Lawrence Taverns professional golfer Luke Many.

Ball prizes down to 35 points.

In B Grade Rhoda Pedraza was too good for the rest of the field with an excellent 40 points. Second on 39 was Michael Shortt.

For third place Troy McFarlane just edged out our resident tree expert Derek Bloomfield on 38 points. Ball prizes down to 35 points including, the luckless, Lance Pedrana.
