Last Tuesday saw the Trangie Golf Club host the veterans for an 18-hole stableford event with 74 players taking part from 14 clubs.
With the course in great shape and fantastic weather and food all the players had a great time and some wonderful scores over all grades were recorded with many winners relying on count backs.
A thankyou must go to all the people who helped to make the day a great success.
The overall winner on the day was Gil Geerts with 44 points. Runner-up overall was Tony Barlow also on 44 points.
A grade winner was Bruce Mitchell; A grade runner-up - Craig Davies.
B grade winner was Ian Cameron; B grade runner-up George Mack.
C grade winner was Henry Rouse; C grade runner-up G Davies.
Nearest to the pin in A grade was John Fairley, B grade Fuzzy and C grade L Hilder.
A grade ladies winner was J Mathews; A grade runner-up L McCutcheon.
B grade ladies winner was A McMillen; B grade runner-up J Richardson.
Nearest to the pin in a A grade was T Mealarly and B grade A Burns.
A special mention goes to Greg Rankmore for his eagle on the par 4 ninth hole; I’m sure that the length of his second shot got longer as the night went.
On Saturday the Trangie Golf Club played the men’s sixth medal round, the R Hohnberg trophy, and the ladies fifth medal round, D Rankmore Trophy, with great scores in both.
The men’s event again came down to a count back with W Wallace and T McWhirter both coming in with 64 nett; well done. Nearest to the pin went to W Wallace with W Wallace also picking up the birdies nest.
The ladies was won by Linda McCutcheon with 67 nett and M Wallace runner-up with 69 nett. M Wallace also picked up the nearest to the pin. A big thank you to the sponsors of the day, R Hohnberg and D Rankmore. On August 7 the ladies played in the final rounds of the McKinnon Cup and President’s trophies. Winner of the McKinnon Cup was Linda McCutcheon 176 and the runner-up was Pam Ferrari 182. President’s Trophy 36-hole handicap winner was Linda McCutcheon 132 so the trophy went to next in line, Anne Burns 141. Winner of the club trophy with a lovely nett 57 was Linda McCutcheon. Ball winners were Linda 57, Anne Burns 68 and Chris Sharpe 68. Chris also won nearest the pin. Please note that on August 25 and 26 the Veterans’ NSW Mixed 4BBB Championships will be held at Trangie.
