On a chilly morning 71 brave souls played the Monthly Mug. The winners are listed above. We had 6 visitors from Russell Vale. A few of them got into the prizemoney and enjoyed their day.

It was also the last round for the Eclectic Competition. The results are listed below.

After adding birdies at the 4th and the 11th to his Eclectic score in the final round, Kel Turner is our 2019 Eclectic winner. Kel finished with a gross score of 63 (9 birdies, 7 pars, 2 bogeys) for a net score of 57.5.Second place went to Phil Viret with a net score of 61.0 with Phil Nicolaides and Paul Wallace tied for a close third with a net score of 61.5.  The two Phils both returned gross scores of 66 comprising 4 birdies and 14 pars and Paul came in with 67 (3 birdies and 15 pars).  Three players (Brian Herring, Michael Liddy and Colin Brigstock) tied for 5th with net scores of 62.0. 85 players played a total of 325 rounds over the 6 rounds comprising the eclectic.Two eagles were recorded over the 325 rounds – Brian Stapylon on the 1st and Chris Pender on the 18th.  Not unexpectedly, the 15th was the hole with the highest number of players (16) with a birdie. The other two birdie holes were the 11th (11 birdies) and the 13th (9 birdies).  Interestingly, no one was able to score a birdie on the 16th and only 31 players recorded a par as their best on this hole. The other two “tough” holes were the 9th (only 27 with par or better) and the 12th (only 31 with par or better).

The next round of the MSCUGA will be played on Monday 8th July weather permitting at Shoalhaven Heads.

More names are required for the friendly at Shell Cove on Monday 15th July. Names are to be in by 8th July. It will be an 8.15 shotgun start TBC.

We had a new member win the medal in B Grade. Well done Leslie McMaster.
