Brooks scores a great result

The course at Kidman Links was in fantastic condition last week for all competitions and the greens were almost back to perfect after the renovations.

The ladies had a great turnout on Wednesday for their stableford competition with Leanne Brooks from Two Wells having a convincing win with 39 points. 

The trio of Carolyn Koch, Jane Teagle and Gloria Potter were all five shots back on 34 points.

Twilight attracted 15 starters in cooler conditions on Wednesday with Tim Knight from Eudunda once already having the best score on the night with 20 points.

Kiwi was next best, a shot behind along with Bo Crombie and Jan Owen was the best of the ladies with 14.

Thursday’s stroke round saw a great field of 42 taking part with veteran Don Wyer having his best score for some time shooting a 94/66.

Eugene Warrior also had a fantastic 78 off the stick for a net 68 and he tied with Grant Richardson. Tony Davies and Keith Earwood had 69 and Phil Haigh, 70.

Saturday brought about some inclement weather for the first day of summer and the monthly medal. The day was windy from the start.

 Peter Morrison was in the box seat after shooting an 82/70 teeing off at the back of the morning field and posting a score that proved to be too good.

It was a great effort from Pete in only his second game back after being quarantined for a couple of months.

Tm Scheer was the best of the A graders and his 74 was pretty good playing in the afternoon. Jaimie Lindeblad posted a 75 and Damian Burgess was another of the early starters and he ended up on 76.

Smoo Hinderwell matched “Buckets” MacKenzie’s 73 and came out on top in the countback to take the B grade voucher with John Harris, Mick Hennessy and Steven Watson all on 74.

Teo Symons held on to win the C grade comfortably with his 74 while Reggie Staehr was back on 77  followed a shot back by the trio of Brett Woodards, Darrell Davies and Michael Fidler.

Eight fillies were out on Saturday and Gloria Potter’s 74 was a couple better than the 76 for Glennis Warrior and Julie Holland. 

Next Saturday Wayne Skinner is putting up the prize in a stableford competition.

It is also the first round of the Drummond Golf handicap matchplay competition for those who were lucky enough to qualify.

This will be the first time Drummond have sponsored this event and the prize at the end will certainly be worth winning. Expect some great golf from those competing.
