The Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemens Social Golf Club commenced its 2015 Club Championship on Sunday 20 September at Worrigee Links.
An exceptional spring day greeted the 25 starters who took to the well presented course.
The winner on the day by a huge margin of 6 strokes was Michael Pearce, who recorded an impressive 60 nett. Michael’s handicap will be tumbling down!
Runners up were Gary de Banke with 66 nett, closely followed by a very consistent Jenniffer Goodall with 67 nett.
Ash Hoogwerf took out the Front 9 prize with 31.5, while a count-back was required to separate Luke Bowden and Charlie Hawkins who both recorded 31.5 on the Back 9, with the prize going to Luke.
There was some good putting on the very slick greens with Barry Wright showing the way taking out the NTPs 12th and 17th, which was the Moto Parts on the Move voucher. Ewan Young got closest on the 6th, while Keith Muller took home the prize on the 8th hole.
The Ladies Long Drive went to a solid drive from Linda Trusler and Jenniffer Goodall snared the Ladies Drive & Pitch. The Stanley John Menswear Men’s Drive & Pitch went to Murray Smith, which could be renamed to drive as Murray drove the green and then he putted in for an eagle, well done big Muzz. The A Grade Men’s Long Drive went to a monster shot from Luke Bowden while Henry Wakeford took out the B Grade Long drive.
After the game, all players enjoyed a fine BBQ lunch cooked by Glenn Summerfield and Keith Muller, under the supervision of Col Burgess. It was good to see Col back after a lengthy break looking after his family.
