Although a handful of hardy souls (read stubborn golfers who are unable to take sage advice from all and sundry) played in the Wednesday 12 June Warburton Golf Club competition, they became soaked – like the course – when the expected rains arrived.
It was deemed a no-competition day so there are no results.
On Saturday 15 June, the weather gods treated players far more kindly.
A very healthy field of 50-plus tackled the much-drier course in the PAR contest.
And, because of those improved conditions, scores were pretty impressive.
John Hall proved that his onerous presidential duties have had no effect on his golf game.
A solid +4 was enough to win John the A-grade voucher.
Roger Mataele proved something, too – your golf game can vary drastically from one day to the next.
A Friday match, which Roger lost with his partner, was quickly forgotten as he blazed around Warburton, also with a +4 to grab the B-grade prize.
Balls went down all the way to -2.
Nearest the pins went to Andrew McMath on the third, Captain Cross on the fifth, David Murch on the ninth, Sam Dennis on the 12th and Junior Kay on the 15th.
