Conditions not too tough for winners

Sandra Ellis and Peter Gibney made the most of the tough conditions on Saturday to win the Stanthorpe Medley 4BBB Stableford sponsored by 4 Water Supplies.

Stanthorpe golfers played in a medley 4BBB Stableford last Saturday, the usual format for the end of month match. Cold conditions and the possibility of rain made the going tough for a lot of the field but not so the winners, Sandra Ellis and Peter Gibney. They returned a winning score of 48 points prizes provided by another of the club’s long term sponsors, 4 Water Supplies. Ellis and Gibney proved to be a good combination recording minimum two points on each hole and several four pointers for good effect. Their consistency made all the difference to the final result.

The runners up were the team of Scott Constable and Andrew Burgess with a combined score of 43 points. As with the winners, this paired well with consistent scoring through the round. Only one hole of four points made the difference.

In the run down, Max Hunter and Greg Fraser returned a card of 43 points. Barry Hughes and Kay Webb (42) points rounded out the list of prize winners.

A big thank you to the 4 Water Team for their sponsorship.
