Short Course Championships

190217 Short Course results after Round 1 Stroud

Round 1 of the 2019 Short Course Championships

Round 1 of the short course Championships was played at Stroud Golf Club on Sunday 17th February

The course was a “bit dry”  but very playable . I particularly like “The Harrington” 328 green on the 6th.

 Winner of the A Grade Scratch event was Garry O’Brien from Karuah with a fine 2 over 73 off the bat. Well played OBI

Runner was Neville Blanch from Wingham and Ben Turner from Dungog with  solid 75’s. Nev double bogey, bogey finish did not help . Had the pleasure of playing with Nev and had it not been for this blemish he may well have got the gold medal .

A Grade Nett went to Ben Veitch form Gloucester with a great score of 67  off his 10 handicap

Runner up was Jlm Clarke from Karuah with 71 off 11.

B Grade Scratch winner Robert Bowden on his home course with a good score of 82.

Runner up was perennial winner “Edward” Russell from Dungog with 83 hits who claimed he was not a burglar as this was a scratch win.

Nett winner in B grade were Michael Williams ,Tanilba Bay with best score of the day 66 Nett from Nigel Pullin from Karuah 67 and Dean Hodges Karuah 68

Brian Gathewaite of Karuah took out the gross with 87 from Mathew Mullaney of Stroud with 92

Rewarded for all his hard work was President Jim Greenham who took out the net with 71 on a count back from another local Richard Blunt
