Last weekend saw the first round of matches in the Walker Fourball and there were some interesting results with some of the matches going to extra holes, and favoured pairings being relegated after the first round leaving them to fight out the plate. The next round is to be played by the 9th July so watch out next week for tee times for the Walker Fourball and the Roy Morris Trophy.
Saturdays club competition was a medal round and there was some great scoring given the time of the year but course is in great condition and there is still a bit of run out there. Group one was taken out by Kurt Karaitiana with a nett 67, with Darryl Coley next with a nett 68 on countback from Philip Granich. Group two was taken out by Shane Stewart who is in sublime form at the moment with a nett 63. He was well in front of Greg Granich with a nett 67 and Laurence Butler with 68. Group three went to Mark Logan with a nett 70 from Carl Cocks with 72 and Graham Duckett with nett 73. Holes in two were scored by Byron Karaitiana, Shane Wilson and Jason Walker. Lukies Lucky Last went to Cheycoda Cocks. Nearest the pins went to Frankie Martin on 1, Kurt Karaitiana on 3, Ivan Karaitiana on 6 and 17, Rod Dravitzki on 8, Graeme Dick on 10.
Last Tuesday Rod Dravitzki scored a hole in one on number seven which is a par four so great shot with the driver Rod, and well done Yeah Baby.
On Tuesday the vets played a par round and in the men's division first was Boidie Walker on four up, followed by Doug Simpson on two up. In the women's division Maria Lauvi was first on one up, followed by Judith O'Connor and Janet Shaw on one down. In the nine holers Gordon Wilton was all square and Irene Phelps was 4 down. Nearest the pins went to Maria Lauvi on 3 and Meki Lauvi on 6.
This Saturday sees the final of the Dove Trophy being played between Ray Cocks and Tim Atkins and they will be first off number one at 12 noon. After a disappointing couple of weeks for both them golf wise this will be a hotly contested final. The club competition is a medal round combined with the Flag Competition. This was a lot of fun last year and I am sure will be the same this Saturday. If you want to know more about how it works then have a look in your programme book. Sunday is a Stableford round.
