Not the biggest turnout of Grumpies today – perhaps the weather has put some off or maybe they just decided to stay home and watch the Melbourne Cup.

Coming up this weekend we have the 36 Hole Mixed Foursomes – tee off is 9.00am and entries are still being taken so let the office know if you wish to play.

Results from last week:  Grumpies played a Stableford round.  Rick Hargreaves was the winner with 45 points, Guy Walmsley 41, Brian Russo, Bob Tosswill and Martin Napier 40 and Andy Morison 39 points.  Twos went to Rick Hargreaves, Ed Brown, Martin Napier, Malcolm Bridge and Guy Walmsley.

On Wednesday the 18 holers played their Club Champ Plate finals.  Winners were Sandra Petersen (Silver), Honor Clark (Bronze A) and Jaquee Reid (Bronze B).  For those not playing matches there was a Par MSB round with Sarah Monaghan winning on +4 and Marion McKenzie and Bindy McLeod both on +1.  There were no twos.

Thursday Club very kindly gave up their day so that we could host our Eagles Halberg Day.  There was an excellent turnout for this and the winners were as follows:  9 Holes:  1st Lizzy Thomson 22 points, 2nd Sherryl Howie 19, 3rd Jenny Tosswill 18.  Ladies:  1st Lisa Marie Ireland 40, 2nd Kris Mason 38, 3rd Ju Allen 36.  Men:  1st Tamahou Aranui 44, 2nd John Monaghan 43, 3rd Lachie McLeod 40, 4th Charlie Cresswell 40, 5th Trevor Petersen 40, 6th Bob Lindberg 39, 7th Vern Anton 39, 8th Brett Abercrombie 38, 9th Doug Clark 37 and 10th Bill Gordon 37 points.  Twos went to:  Tamahou Aranui, John Duffy (Eketahuna), Martin Napier, Vern Anton, Greg Dalton and Brett Abercrombie.  Nearest the pins:  #6 John Duffy, #8 Greg Dalton, #12 Jimmy McKinnel, #16 Dayle Harwood.  Longest drives:  Men 0-18 Doug Clark, 19+ Jason Burt, Ladies Lisa Marie Ireland.  Following the golf there was an auction of wine which was kindly donated by a number of local wineries.  Thank you to everyone for supporting the day where we raised $2,700.

At the weekend the Club Championship Finals were played:  Mens Senior winner was Tony Russo, runner up Josh Hawkins, Mens Intermediate winner was George Kirk, runner up Dayle Harwood, Ladies Silver Division winner was Anna Possenniskie, runner up Lisa Marie Ireland, Ladies Bronze A winner Jenny Wilkie, runner up Karen Shaw, Ladies Bronze B winner Sarah Monaghan, runner up Alison Tipler.

On Sunday the competition was Stableford with Emily Loughan leading the way with 45 points, Derek Stephens 41, Neil McKirdy 39 and Paul McKenzie 38 points.  Bob Tosswill won the birds nest getting 2 twos, Ben Stevenson, Emily Loughnan and John Warner also got twos.

Coming up this week the ladies have their 36 Hole Strokeplay Championship, on Saturday 36 Hole Mixed 4Somes and on Sunday the competition is Medal/Putting and the final qualifying round for Shoot Out.

That’s it for this week.
