In Warburton Golf Club’s Wednesday 12 December stableford competition, Tony Bickley made a welcome return and reminded everyone what a good player he is.
He amassed 38 points, but only won on a count-back from perennial runner-up Des Ray.
Ray has hit a rare vein of form recently.
Balls went down to 35.
Nearest the pin winners were Happy Gilmore on the ninth, Danny Fox with his second shot on the sixth, and Bickley on the 15th.
In the twilight competiton, Paul Long is another member who has struck form.
His 24 points over the back nine should see his handicap shrink.
Another very consistent twilight player, Roger Mataele, snared the runner-up prize with 21 points.
Balls extended to 18.
Nearest the pins went to Jason Kennedy on the 11th, Snorks on the 12th and Hatty on the 15th.
Some great scores were recorded on Saturday 15 December.
Steuart Hawke had a +6 with four birdies and still only scored a ball.
Lang Lang guest Perry O’Connor clearly enjoys visiting Warburton.
His +8 easily won the day and A-grade.
B-grade went to Barry Maltman, scoring a +4.
Jason Kennedy was the day’s runner-up with a +6.
Players who scored +2 up can collect a ball.
The winning nearest the pin players were Angus Smith on the third, Allan Hubbard on the fifth, Neil Leckenby on the ninth, guest Dave Werner on the 12th and Bruno Kennedy on the 15th.
