A field of 60 Warwick Golfers teed off on Saturday in very difficult conditions. The very strong winds played havoc with the game of many of the field. One player who appeared to have no issues with the blustery conditions was Clayton Frank. He returned 40 points to take a two shot win over runner up Gary Millard. Clayton who was a member back in 2016 played only played a couple of games in the past few weeks since returning to golf her in Warwick. He shot a 78 off the stick off his 13-handicap. It was an excellent round hopefully the result will encourage him to play here more regularly.
Gary Millard has been knocking on the door for some time and his turn looks to be not far away.
Featuring in the run down was Tallebudgera Golf Club member Robert Bergin and Shaun Campbell who each scored 38. Also getting a mention were Sam McLennan, Jamie Ollerton, Dave Speedy and Geoff Hinze (37).
Geoff Hinze also collected the NTP on the fifth. Seven went the way of Don Warrener. Brodie Quirk collected at nine; Ray Dudley at the 11th and the 16th went the way of Wayne Walters.
Allan Matthews is back from a long spell in South Australia and quickly found form at the pro pin on the 13th winning five balls. ay Dudley had a good day with the short irons collecting four balls, Wayne Watt picked up three while Gary Millard and Scott McLennan grabbed a ball each.
Golfers are reminded that there has been a programming change on Saturday. The competition had been changed to an SS -v- Par event.
A reminder that the West School P and C Day, a four ball Ambrose is on Sunday 28 November. It is sure to be a big day with plenty of prizes and a lot of fun. Shotgun starts at 7.30am and again at noon,
The club and members wish John Porter a speedy recovery following a health issue last week. Members look forward to seeing John back on the fairways in no time at all.
If you are a golfer who has not played in a while and have been thinking you should get back to the game now is the perfect time. The course has never looked better following recent rains.
