Closing Day of the Summer

Saturday was the final day of the summer season and interest was added by dividing the round into 3 separate competitions. The first 6 holes where played as a par round, holes 7-12 as stableford & holes 13-18 as stroke. Dick Cleland won the par comp with a blistering plus 4 for 6 holes. Runner up was Chris “Critta Waters with plus 2. The stableford competition was decided by count back with colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson & Dick Secomb both scoring 15 points for the 6 holes. Thomo got the nod on the count back. The stroke comp was won by Pat Hallion with a red hot net score of 21 2/3 from Dick Cleland with 23 2/3.

The overall winner was decided by a points system devised by club captain Russell “Gus The Good Guy” Wenzel and which I cannot fault. Overall winnner was Dick Cleland with Pat Hallion runner up. Bob Taylor got the Mars Bar.
