The ladies as always got the golfing under way for the week on Wednesday and there was some of the best scoring from the 14 strong field as seen for some time.

Tine Perry scored 40 points, the highest score I can remember, and then it was a one point drop at a time to Carole Molloy, Kath Stubing and Jan Hoffman on 37.

Jenny Menzel had 34 points.

The field on Thursday were also chasing 40-plus points when Boo Menzel posted his best score for a while with 41.

He had a convincing 4 point lead over the trio of Vince Cozzitorto, Ray Thorning and Wayne Russell.

Dean Butler, Barry Partridge, Howie Jacques, Wayne Morris and German all carded 36 points.

Saturday's excellent field of 85 players teed up in a stroke round and it was great to see Chris Doyle returning to the winners circle with an 83/65.

If I was a betting man, I would say this would be Chris' best score off the stick at Kapunda.

Ryan Allen also had a welcome return to form, cleaning up in the top grade with his net 68.

Ben Dikih and Damian Burgess both had 71 and Wayne Morris continued on from his good mid-week form with 72.

In the B grade it was the fillies skipper who led the way with Julie Holland also carding a very nice score of 70. The trio of Barry Partridge, Tony Chiverton and Brad Thomas all carded 71.

The C grade saw Keith Earwood have the win by the narrowest of margins over Glennis Warrior after he scored a net 72.

Kym Mosey also matched Glennis with 73.

Mick 'Finger' Bunn was a handy cricketer in his time but I'm sure he would rather stay away from scoring a "ton" on the golf course.

There are a few players who have some work to do if they want to qualify for the Drummond Summer Cup Matchplay with the second round of qualifying on February 29.

This Saturday players will be out in a stableford round which will also be the format on Wednesday for the ladies.

There are still some weeks of twilight to be played so get out and have a hit when the weather looks like it will be perfect for golf all week.
