Last week, fine weather meant that we were able to hold three competitions! 

Tuesday, July 12

We had the company of another group of our most welcome southern players. 

A Stableford was played, resulting in a ‘Paul’ day, as the winner, on 39, was Paul Marland and the runner-up was Paul Taylor from the Anglesea Golf Club, on 35.

Paul Marland took out the NTP Men’s, on #2/11. Rhys Camilleri took the All-In on #4/13 and the Approach Shot on #8/17 was taken by Fran Lomas.

Thursday, July 15

Sporters played the first 9-Stroke, with Greg Eagles having a ‘field day’, winning with a 27 and also taking out the NTP’s on #1 and #2. 

The runner-up was Rod Rackley on 29, with Rod also winning the Least Putts with a great 10. Mattie Smith came in third on a countback with 30. 

The other NTP’s went to Tony Gray who took out #3 and #4, and Gavin Camilleri took #7. The Club and winners thank Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park for their sponsorship last Thursday.

Saturday, July 17

A 2-Ball Ambrose was played, sponsored by Reed’s Betta Electrical. It was an enjoyable change playing the Ambrose, as most competition days are Stroke or Stableford. 

The winning team of Gavin Camilleri and Matt Boulton (one of our great visitors), had the winning card of 59 3/4, followed by the team of Paul Marland and Colleen Ingold, with a 62.

NTP’s were on each of our Par 3 Holes and were All-In, with Winners as follows: 

#2/11 Caryl Lavell / Bruce Walker – #4/13 Matt Boulton / Gavin Camilleri – #5/14 Paul Marland / Colleen Ingold – #6/15 Kelly Cavallaro / Paul Topper.

Raymond Reed was there in person to award the winners their respective trophies. The winner’s Eskies had labels that paid tribute to the fifty years that Reed’s has been trading in Tully. The names of the players who did not win any trophies were placed into a hat for a draw, with Raymond donating another Esky for the winner. How lucky was Frank Tomasino! Our appreciation of Raymond’s generosity was strongly applauded by all present. 

Another extremely busy weekend is upon us! Our Open Championship, sponsored by Teitzel’s Supa IGA, will be played on Saturday and Sunday. Let’s play well and enjoy it!
