Wednesday Skins – surfing spectacular

The Wednesday afternoon nine-hole jaunt is getting bigger fields now week by week and this week’s event in beach attire was a frantic affair played in brilliant sunshine.

Thursday Medley Stableford

With the course rapidly drying out in the warm weather the scores are getting more consistent but not yet spectacular.

Playing off the Black markers, the extra length they provided meant that Steve Logans 36 points was good enough to edge out Steven Potter just one shot behind on 35.

Justin Menzies started his round well with nearest the pin on the second hole. On the 7th Geoffrey Grayson in fine form found some extra length from his hybrid to go very close.

Leigh Barrington may have been lucky to get closest to the 11th but his nearest the pin on the 17th was an altogether different effort.

Rod Smith missed his birdie on the ninth again, but his chip was good enough to get nearest the pin.

Ball prizes all the way down to 31 points in all grades.

Saturday Medley Stableford – the David Lloyd Memorial

A good field enjoyed a bit of fairway run and lightning greens for this annual event.

A Grade was a very close contest. Terry Adcock came out just on top with 37 points on countback from Geoffrey Johnson and Paul Danvers in third.

In B Grade, David Jazzy had a special round of 39 points to put him two clear of Peter Kenny from Port Lincoln and a rapidly recovering Mark Williams.

Nearest the pin on 2nd hole was Coiin Harvey (which may have been his highlight of the day). Terry Lawes got a bit of run on the front of the 7th hole to get pretty close. Peter Kenny obviously liked the 11th hole as he dismissed it with short iron and a tap in putt.

Mark Tabor made easy work of the 17th and David Bruton took the Sanctus Thistle lager prize on the ninth in advance warning of the launch of the Clubs own Thistle lager produced especially for us by our friends at Sanctus Brewery.
