Winter Gender Challenge Wrap

After establishing a strong lead last week, today the Men staved off the Ladies efforts to make a comeback in the final round (a Stroke and Putting round) of the Gender Challenge before enjoying a sumptuous lunch, thanks to all players bring a plate.


Anglin won the ladies stroke event with a nett 77 from Di Elliot 78.

Peter Johnston took out the Mens Stroke event with an excellent 72 from Russ Wealands 77 after a countback with Ivor Brayley. Russ, who had 7 one putt greens in a row won the putting with 25 putts and Martin Lowe was NTP on the 14th. Carl won the Club Award.

The Club’s AGM was held last night with President Greg in the Chair. The attendance was dismal, but the power outage would have contributed no doubt, but the report was good.

Gary Pollard, the Men’s hard working, diligent Club Captain stepped down and has been succeeded by Alan Pell.

Our sincere thanks go to Gary for his outstanding contribution in this role over many years …and to Alan, for stepping into the role. Alan has made it clear that he will be asking for, and needing all Club Members to take on a small role and help him out wherever possible.

With ever increasing costs those at the AGM resolved to raise Membership fees by some $10 per player and bar prices have also had a small increase to help balance the books next year.

For those interested – Jeff Aurish was the winner of the APBT (Alan Pell Budget Tours) – 2018 Tassie Open, Russ Wealands wins the shot of the tournament playing on his knees out of the sand to birdie the 3rd hole at Lost Farm and Alan ….well he won photograph of the tour with this great action photo.
