Hole in one to Robert Gallagher

 Saturday’s Stableford competition attracted 147 starters, with the course generally coming out on top.

One highlight of the day was the perfect shot played to the 12th hole by Robert Gallagher. Scoring an ACE eludes most golfers, and it is a very special occasion. Congratulations Robert.

Craig Penman took advantage of a late starting time to put together a great round of 41 points to easily win A Grade from Garry O’Connell and Mark Phillips who visited the countback when both scored 38. Best score of the day was recorded by Peter Brennan in B Grade with 42 points. David McQueen and David Carothers both scored 39 and were separated by the countback.

In C Grade, Brian Dwyer returned to the winner’s circle with 37 points on a c/b from Dan Nikas. Kevin Molloy took third place with 36 points.

NTP winners: SeaFire 3rd – Col Lindsay (35cm); Peter Campbell 9th – Barry Fisher (246cm); SeaFire 10th – Garry O’Connor (230cm); SeaFire 12th – Robert Gallagher (HIO); Bean Scene 17th – Barry Fisher (172cm).
