Blackheath Golf Results - 16th May to 19th May 2018
On Thursday 17th Marilyn Rowe sponsored a Par event. Conditions were cool and still, good for golf. Louise Aaron (30) took advantage by recording a winning +1 score, two better than the runner-up, Rhonda Lonergan. Nearest-the-Pin on the 17th was won by Jennifer Wilde, while Rhonda won the Blackheath Vegie Patch-sponsored 13th. Balls went to Louise, Rhonda, Karen Tolhurst, Jennifer, Yvonne Murray, Joan Aitken, Virginia Hurst and Jeanette Hawkins.
On Saturday 19th May there was a Single Stableford sponsored by Lynne Pressley and held on ideal autumn conditions. Sandra Draper (26) won with 34 points over Rhonda Lonergan (22) with 22. Lynne was closest at the 7th and Rhonda closest at the “Blackheath Vegie-Patch”-sponsored 13th to take the Nearest-the-Pin prizes. Balls went to Sandra, Rhonda, Kerry Wynne, Marie Griffiths, Cindy Fitzgerald, Yvonne Murray and Jean Simpson.
On Wednesday 16th May the Men held their usual Single Stableford and 2BBB. Great weather saw a return to the winners’ circle for Walter Sheil (24, 41 points) and Gordon Stovold (16, 40 points). Jim Walsh (18) and Geoff Hilder (23) won with 46 points, one less than their running-up score of last week. Steve Tolhurst (11) and Peter White (26) came second OCB. Nearest-the-Pin winners were Ian Griffiths at the 5th (395cm) and Murray Mehrtens at the 17th (351cm). Balls went to 35 points OCB.
On Saturday 19th May we ran a Bisque Par, sponsored by Graham Jones and Peter White with $200 in prizes. The three-month information and education program designed to enable players to complete their scorecards properly will require revision, but apart from that, the event was a resounding success. The weather was fine. David Pope (22) managed 7+ to squeeze out Ken Scully (19) on countback to claim victory. Paul Cinet (18), in his first competition game at the Club scored +6 to secure third. Balls went to +2 OCB.
Nearest-the-Pin awards and the NTP sponsors are as follows. 2nd hole sponsored by Blue Mountains Plantation Shutters and Cabinet Making, John VanVeen 156cm.
