Big Harry is Back in 2022

It was the March Monthly Medal and Guzzlers Mug, and back into form storms the Fencer that became a Golfer. With a whopping 10 less handicap than this time last year, Harry Sachs continues to blaze away the fields and give the handicapper no reason to put the machete away, chopping further at his constant handicap whittling.

Now on 14 playing handicap and just sneaking into A Grade for the Medals, Harry has won the A Grade Medal, the Day’s Event and also the prestigious Guzzlers Mug for another dose of pestilence to members for the upcoming 30 days. Harry has shot a very tidy 81 for a 67 nett and 40 stableford points. Congratulations as you break from the cusp of A Grade, seriously down into a solid seat at the table.

Our B Medallist is also someone who has been showing perseverance & patience at his newly chosen craft Chris Whybrow has been toiling away since late last year and has finally put a round together that demonstrates this. Chris has shot a 69 nett or 2 under his handicap and should be proud. Keep it going Zeke.

Our A Scratch was Kevin Hoppe who had a very neat 75 shots off the stick, whilst in B Grade we welcome back Damian Kemp to golf and also the winners circle with a 91 for a par nett round. In the ball comp (refreshment voucher) the scoring was very tight, especially in the A Grade bracket, proving you had to play at or below your handicap this week to claim a ball. First time this has happened in quite a few months.

Vouchers after the medallist got their Club Credits, went to; Matt Peisley (69 nett), Brett Johnson (69 nett), Kevin Hoppe (70 nett), Tam Kennedy (70 nett) and Damian Kemp (71 nett).

This Weekend

This week we are playing a 4BBB Medley Multiplier. Stableford points for Player 1 are multiplied by the points on that hole for Player 2. For example 3 points x 3 points gets a beautiful 9 point score on the hole, whereas a 4 point times a 0 point (wipe) = 4 x 0 = 0 points.

Tough game but it rewards both players playing to their handicap and supporting each other. Our sponsors each year for this event are the crew at DA Busters Development Services, Craig & Toni Filmer.
