Seniors – Nick Craft Trophy - Tuesday, February 4th
On Tuesday, February 4th, the Seniors took part in the Nick Craft Trophy competition. The competition is a “yellow ball” format, whereby each team of 3 players has a yellow ball and each team member uses the yellow ball in rotation. The Stableford score of the yellow ball counts double and, if the team loses their yellow ball, they obviously lose the ability for it to count double. Only 2 teams lost their yellow ball!
It was a very cold windy morning and 45 players took part in the competition on the Ancaster course. There were some excellent scores, the winning team consisted of: Steve White, John Clarke & John Elliott scoring 116 points, that’s 6 points clear of 2nd place!
Steve White, John Clarke & John Elliott
Mike Collins, Gary Hill, & Paul Walsh
David Langley, David Andrew & Tiny Holmes
Nick Craft was on hand to present the trophy to the winning team.
This week, Lee and his team are doing a little bit or turf work.
On Monday morning they took delivery of 1200 square metres of top quality turf from Fineturf. The lads have unloaded, transported and commenced work on the new bunkers.
You will note the use of upside down turf as a liner for the new bunkers. Clever.
The new fairway bunker on the 1st was completed by morning tea break and one on the 10th was finished by lunch. Now that is a fantastic effort!
