Wray Owen Monthly Medal January 2016


Columbus went around in 1492 ,not bad when you consider the size of the course,Marty Douglas alias”The Striker”went around in 56 nett,excellent for someone that has not been playing that long and left 111 players in his wake.Well done “Striker”and he’s modest with it not one bit of emotion I’m sure he’ll take it in his stride and we won’t n hear another thing about it!!I have been wrong in the past!!

61 players played to their handicap or better you had to have 64 nett to win a ball!!Tough school!!

Cam Fraser shot the best round of the day a 1 under par off the stick and Steve Kohler probably had his best round ever with a 73 off the stick on a 13 cap.Good stuff!!Other worthy mentions were Mark Speechley 72 off the stick and Dave hedger 74.Best of the visitors was a fine 71 by Blake Nielsen from Shelly Beach.

A regular husband and wife team has left the husband shattered he just on the fringe of A Grade was beaten off the stick by his wife quite easily by 3 shots and will no doubt like to leave golf alone this week,but I don’t think knowing the Lady that she will allow the week to pass in the manner the poor chap would appreciate.Never mind Kirk 7 days is not a long time,but then again!!
