Successful golf day for the NSW Cancer Council at PMGC


On Sunday PMGC conducted a four person Ambrose with a few twists in a fund raiser for the NSW Cancer Council.

A special thank you to the 72 participants and the marvellous kind sponsors who helped raise a figure above two thousand dollars for the worthy cause.

The winners on the day were Eric Godward, Dave Gilbert, Craig Ferris and Damien Friedli.

It was marvellous to see the runners up were made up of three players playing their first comp rounds ably led by Marita Scroope with Kay Cusick, Chris Cusick and Rob Withall all to be encouraged to play comp more often.

Numerous other trophies were available on the day, many too many to list but again thanks to all.

Wednesday last a healthy field of 142 players enjoyed a typical winters day on the coast with the best score of the day recorded by Alan Llewellyn (40 points) good stuff Al playing very consistent golf of late, naturally Al took out his grades cash as well.

The other winners on the day were Club Champ Nick Crundall showing his natural ability on the lead into the club champs, which are only two and a half weeks away now, scoring 37 points to lead A grade.

Bernard Lagarenne mustered up 39 points in B grade and a visitor from Long Reef Golf Club John Davison securing a bit of the south coast cash leading in the C grade with a steady 37 points. John couldn’t get over the marvellous conditions we enjoy week in week out and wanted to take our greens back to Sydney with him.

Merimbula Fresh Seafoods are the new sponsor of the golden shot and this week a total of $478 was handed out to John Brandenburg ($186 on Wednesday) Ian Ashton ($166 on Saturday) and Robin Stribbles ($126 on Sunday) three fine shots lads.

In Saturday’s wild and windy conditions only 103 fronted up to the par event with Jo Richardson rolling Chris Beatty (both scoring plus 4) on a countback for the score of the day.

Leon Moodie won the B grade with Jo successful in A grade and Chris the C grade winner.

The star of the ladies play this past week was country member Carole Stribbles (Box Hill) with a great 38 points on Tuesday, when Jeanice Crawford scored a very steady 35 points to lead B grade.

Thursday Kerryl Stirling fired the score of the day (35 points) with Jenny Fleming (country member from Traralgon) enjoying being out of the Gippsland mud and rattling up 33 points.

Saturday it was Kim Helmers leading the way with a well compiled 33 points.
