Sun shines on Kapunda golfers

It would appear we have mostly warm weather golfers in our midst with the cooler weather last week producing some less than startling results.

The ladies had another fantastic field of 18 teed up in the Kapunda Hardware stableford round.

Captain Gloria Potter led the way by the narrowest of margins with 34 points and Jane Teagle and Roseanne Rule had 33 apiece.

Thursday’s field of almost 30 also had a stableford round and in an unusual result, the winner couldn’t make the 40-point mark.

Frankie “German” Schulz was the best of the bunch with a steady 37 points and Darrell Davies was just a point behind. Graham Hill had 35 and both Jaxson Jones and Dennis Miller 34.

The stroke round on Saturday attracted just the five women and 48 men, an unusually low field.

Carole Molloy was the best of the ladies with a net 76 and Glennis was a shot behind.

Ever young veteran Geezer showed the rest of the field how the game was played with the only sub 70 score of the day. His 69 continues a pretty steady run of late. Maybe he doesn’t need that knee operated on after all.

Marty Hayward matched his 72 of the previous week which was good enough to take the A grade voucher.

The trio of Jaxson Jones, Jaimie Lindeblad and Leigh Durdin all finished just a shot back. Young Jaxson is a keen student of the game and his multiple competitions a week has seen him reduce his handicap to an impressive 3.4.

Ryan Allen joined Alex Nicholson with the second best score of the day being net 70. On this occasion it was big hitting Leftie who took the countback and the B grade voucher ahead of Alex.

The German followed up his good form with 71 along with Steven Watson. This was the score Geoff Zerk carded to win the C grade. Chris Matcham was a couple back on 73 with the same margin back to third place getter Troy Flanigan.

The encouragement award went to one of the newest volunteers on the course with Jim Menzel taking home the tray of eggs, along with John Conaghty,

Jim has stepped in to cover the work done by David Jones while he is off touring with his lovely wife Cindy. Well done – your support and input is appreciated by all members.

This weekend begins with a stableford round for the Barry “Willow” Williams prize and also the last chance to qualify for the Dave Forrest “Top Dog” match play comp.

This will be followed up on Sunday with the Laucke Mens Open. There are still a few places for Sunday if you have not yet decided whether to have a crack.

The first weekend in June will also see the next “pork night” so if you love a good feed and a bit of a night out, keep this Saturday free. The feed is well worth it.
