Maclean Wednesday’s weather dampens enthusiasm

Our event on Wednesday February 17 was the 2nd monthly medal Stroke round, due to the weather our field was relatively small in numbers, with only 24 players.  The rain played havoc with most of our scores with the overall winner recording a nett 75.

A big thankyou to our sponsors for today, Sheree Forsythe and Helen Graney. I’m sure the wine will go down well. Their generous sponsorship enabled us to have lots of raffle prizes.


Div 1 – Sheree Forsythe (nett 75); r/up – Amanda Barwick (nett 78) on a c/b.

Div 2 – Molly Plunkett (nett 77); r/up – Bev Ensbey (nett) 79.

Overall putting: Chris Picton 28.

Chip ins: Rhoda Pedrana, Vero Morgan & Chrissie Powell.

NTP’s: 2nd – Sheree Forsythe .17cm; 7th – Sue Fong Kee 1.96cm; 11th – Jean Ellis .16cm; 17th – Cath Parker .35cm.

Club balls: Pat Harris, Chris Picton, Cathy Ayres, Nancy Phillips, Sue Fong Kee & Di Moore.

Congratulations to this week’s winners.

Due to the rain and the inventive nature of Chrissie Powell a new wet weather outfit was designed in clear plastic accessorised with a matching occy strap. I’m told the strap comes in many colours. Chrissie also accessorised this outfit with a matching shower cap. Just proves you don’t have to spend a lot of money to stay dry. Well done Chrissie. I think she’s taking orders if anyone is interested. Prices on application!

Just a reminder, ladies we will be having an Easter hat competition, so put your thinking “hat” on as the best hat wins.

Don’t forget to book your Tee Time on online. Please be at the clubhouse by 8am for an 8.30 start. See you all next week.
