Whiting Bay Golf Club

Sunday October 11, Winter Cup Rd 1. Once again the weather was kind to us for the first round of the Winter Cup. This is often the round where a low score is posted setting up the eventual winner before the bad weather settles in but, despite the conditions, scoring was steady rather than spectacular. A total of 10 of the 20 cards returned scored in the net 60s but CSS still went out to 64. Neil Richardson beat that by 1 shot to win by 2 from Ronnie Mann.
Result: 1 Neil Richardson (4) – 63 and lowest gross, 2 Ronnie Mann (12) – 65 acb, 3 Stan Rainey (11) – 65, 4 David Brookens (12) – 66 acb. Stan Rainey bagged the only 2 of the day @2nd.

The Summer Trophy result posted last week was incorrect. The correct position is
1 Nicol Auld – 231, 2 Ryan Armstrong – 237, 3 John Pennycott – 239, 4 David Brookens – 245. The club offers apologies to Ryan and congratulations to Nicol.

Fixtures: Sunday October 18, Bogey Competition. Winter rules now in place. Until further notice there will be no draws for partners and members should arrange their own groupings.
