Picture perfect golf day

GERRINGONG Golf Club values its volunteer workforce and sponsors, and Don Hughes took great delight in sponsoring Saturday's Stableford event.

The best round of the day was by Simon Urszulak from B-Grade with a terrific 42 points.

Kris Puckeridge and Travis McMahon, both from A-Grade and both on 39 points, anxiously awaited the handicapper's scrutiny of a count-back, with Puckeridge gaining the ascendancy.

B-Grade runner-up was Robert Brassil with 36 points, while balls went to players who had 35 points or better.

Nearest to pins: 2nd S. Clay, 8th K. Webb, 14th P. Bramley, 18th J. Quine, 12th Longest Drive (A) G. Lenson (B) R. Quinn.

Our course was picture perfect thanks to our groundsmen and some fortuitous weather for Sunday's semi-final of the Men's Illawarra Pennants, which our club hosted.

I am informed that many of our visitors were complimentary about the presentation of our course.

Craig Davis mowed down the opposition in the 12-Hole Chook Run with a hot 30 points.

Peter Rush's 27 points is usually good enough to win, but he had to be content with the runner-up spot.

Balls went to Jake Taylor (26), Ian Woodlands (25) and Luke Taylor (24).

Excitement is mounting with the Ladies Gerringong Open this Thursday and the Men's Club Championships beginning on Saturday, April 5.
