Players were dismayed when they arrived for golf today to find a stroke competition had been programed. While it could be argued that they should have checked the program and chosen to help their wives in the garden, nobody expects a stroke round in the summer.
The scores were not impressive but Michael “Tickers” Tickner won the day with a net 73, 3 strokes above his handicap. Dick Cleland was runner up with a net 75, a score bad enough to see the acting handicapper add 2 strokes to his handicap.. Andrew Spackman scored a net 76, followed by Kobi Wenzel & Russell “Gus The Good Guy” wenzel with net 79, colourful local identity Philip “Thomo” Thomson net 81, Mark “Mouldy” Millward net 83 & Luke Spackman net 85.
In a remarkable double, frequent visitor, Klaus Heymann from Tarcowie Golf Club won both the count putts competition & the Mars Bar, the first time this has happened.
