Ex-Servicemens Social Golf Club Championship Round 2


The Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemens Social Golf Club played the second round of the 2015 Club Championship on Sunday 18 October at Nowra Golf Club.

Perfect conditions greeted the 23 starters who took to the course for a stroke event.

The winner on the day by one stroke was Anthony Barnes, returning after a long absence from the Social Golf scene, to record a nett 68.

Runners up on 69 were Paul Kirk and Ashley Hoogwerf, with Paul taking the second place on a count-back.

Luke Bowden took out the Front 9 prize with a nett 33, while President Judy Wakeford  recorded 31.5 on the Back 9, to take this prize.

Charlie Hawkins was on fire on the shorter holes, birdieing both the 4th and 12th holes and claiming the NTP on the 4th, which was the Birdie’s Nest which was shared with Derek Trusler. Luke Bowden claimed the NTP on the 12th whilst Glenn Summerfield took the prize on the 16th.

The Ladies Long Drive went to a solid drive from Jenniffer Goodall, however none of the ladies were able to snared the Ladies Drive & Pitch.  The Stanley John Menswear Men’s Drive & Pitch went to visitor Aaron Drabsch. The A Grade Men’s Long Drive went to a monster drive from Anthony Barnes on the 9th, which finished only 70 metres from the green.  Paul Kay took out the B Grade Long drive.

There were some lucky and not so lucky players on the day with Peter Morgan using a power pole to keep his ball in play, while Bob Pender struggled to get out of bunker while Peter Harvey was going drive his bal into next year, only to miss it completely!

The Knock Out competition is down to the last 2 players: Peter Harvey and Peter Morgan will face off at the Shoalhaven Heads game to determine the winner.
