Stanthorpe golfers played for the March monthly medal last Saturday and the event attracted a good field of members and some visiting API golfers.
Aaron Simmers played up to his best scoring a nett 67 which was good enough to grab a win. The win may cause the handicapper to take a good look at his card.
Rino Piovesan finished with the next best score of nett 70 to claim the Runner’s Up prize. Brendon Barker continued his good recent form and finished his round with the Best Gross score of 76 and the least putts (23). He also continued collecting balls for pro pins at 1/10 and 9/18.
No March madness for Ladies’ winner Trish Fittock who finished with a score of nett 71 four shots clear of the field. Fittock also picked up the Ladies’ putting award. A count back was required before Lorraine Evans was handed the runner’s up prize and Neta Thouard was relegated to determine the winner of the Best Gross – Nikki Waterworth taking the honours.
Pin shots went the way of Matt Waterworth (3), Aaron Simmers (12) and Scott Constable (17). Waterworth also collected the remaining ball for the pro pin at 5/14.
There were no takers for the ladies pin at three however Nikki Waterworth had best approach at 12 and Sandra Morris at 17.
In the run down, it was a ball for scores of nett 74 and better for the men and nett 79 and better for the ladies.
The March Medal was sponsored by Alex Vale who unfortunately could not be at the club to present the trophies but his support is greatly appreciated.
This week the club has scheduled an individual stroke event which will also serve as the second round of the Pike Trophy. The event will be sponsored by Stephen and Sandra Kay. There is a time sheet on display on the board at the club and tee off is at the usual time of 11.30am.
