The third and final round of the Foundation Cups was played last Saturday. In the continuing dry conditions the course is playing with a lot more run and scores usually get better. So it was no surprise that the leader board was fairly congested as players jettisoned the worst of the three rounds with only the best two rounds considered for the Cup.
Kev Rowling managed to be one shot better than the rest of the field to get his name inscribed on the Cup in 2019. Lyn Ludlow was the clear winner of the ladies’ Cup finishing four shots clear of the field and she will have her name added to the Ladies trophy as the 2019 winner.
Saturday’s single stroke event was another win for junior golfer, Billy Webb who returned a nett 68 score.
After an uneventful front nine, Webb came home with 37, one over par to seal the win. The recent form of Ian Pickering has been very consistent. On Saturday he finished one shot off the pace on nett 69 and was the runner up.
In the run down, Scott Constable, Keith Green, Kev Rowling and Keith Allen each collected a ball for their nett 70 and Neta Thouard and Racheal Hendry were in the Ladies’ run down.
Todd Beckett collected the pin at three. Matt Waterworth was on song at 12 and Keith Jones at 17. Pro-pins went to Max Hunter at 1/10, David Reeves at 5/14 and Scott Constable at 9/18.
The Ladies Cup winner, Lyn Ludlow had the round of the day in the Ladies competition returning nett 74 to win the stroke event ahead of Kay Webb in second place with nett 79.
Racheal Hendry scooped the pool winning all three ladies’ pin shots.
The birdies nest at 10 went unclaimed.
This Saturday the club is hosting a medley 4BBB Stableford. It is the David Townsend Memorial Day, sponsored by the RSL golfers. David Townsend was a keen sportsman and enjoyed golf and was largely responsible for instigating a mid-week competition at the club. As the event will be held on Australia Day, there could also be special events for the most appropriately dressed and for decorated buggies. Tee off with a shot gun start at 11.45 am. Registration twenty minutes prior to tee off and there is a time sheet is on the board in the clubhouse.
