EVEN golf is affected by the virus news, but we will soldier on as best we can with a few variations.
Thursday afternoon social golf attracted a good field of 19 golfers. Kath Mooney showed a bit of her hidden talent to win the afternoon with 26 points.
Joe Casey was nearest the pin on the first hole, just 1.5 metres away from the cup.
A good field of 44 golfers played fourball and an individual stableford competition on Saturday. Hamish Anderson showed us all his undoubted talent to have a round of four under par, 42 points to easily win A grade.
Dennis O'Connell was the runner-up with 39 points.
Luke Christie Johnston was the B grade winner and Glen Joseph the runner-up. Dennis O'Connell and Doug Collins were the fourball winners with a three-way countback on 46 points. Hamish Anderson and Dom York were the runners-up.
Dom York was nearest the pin on the ninth hole and Andrew Yeo was closest on the 17th.
A highlight of the day was an eagle for Adrian Poulten on the 11th hole.
The Club Championships, sponsored by DJ and BD O'Connell, begin next Saturday for the first round; the second round will be played on Sunday.
The grades will be A grade handicap 0-10, B grade 11-17 and C grade 18-36. C grade will be a scratch and handicap event.
Due to the COVID-19 virus, it will be compulsory to leave the flagstick in the hole while putting and players will mark their own card.
