Stanthorpe Sporters break out

After being confined to barracks for several Sunday mornings Stanthorpe Sporters were back on deck last Sunday and pleased to be able to hold their usual Sunday morning event. The sneaky breeze was doing its job drying out the course, but it also kept a few of the usual suspects indoors as they opted for “staying warm” over golfing.

The final results were quite close but it was Dick Hilton to put the chilly conditions to one side and won the round with a nett Final results were all fairly close but it was Dick Hilton who won the day with nett 24. A very good score in the cold conditions. Dick obviously keeping his playing tips to himself and not sharing with his son. A decision that paid dividends.

Angelo Maugeri played a solid round and kept the errors to a minimum. His score of nett 26 good enough to land him the runner’s up prize but not before a cut of Ivan Juriss who returned the same score.

Only two in shots were on offer. fine shot by Terry Byrnes at the 12th hole saw him hold the green and collect the balls on offer. The other pin shot went begging. Byrnes, I am told is now so confident at taking pin shots, he now has a personalised and laminated name tag he can use on the par threes.

Paul Armstrong managed the lowest gross round, 41 hits for the day.

Sporters will be back again this Sunday hitting off at again 8am next Sunday morning with an 8.00 am hit off. With the prediction of a warm and sunny day on Sunday hopefully a few of the hibernating Sporters can be enticed back onto the fairway.

As is always the case, anyone is welcome to join the regular crew for a Sunday morning stroll chasing a little white ball.
