Johnson & Kemp Back in Force

Well it was our second teams event for the month and it proved quite popular with a slid turnout.

The 2 person ambrose format always hits a chord at the home of the Australian Championship, and with a theme of bring a non-golfer, it also saw the return of some not so regulars, which is a great outcome, whetting their appetite to rejoin our ranks once again.

Winners of the day’s straight out Comp were a pair of those “not so regulars” in Damian Kemp & Brett Johnson. Proving they have some timeless quality swings still in their bag, these boys have swept the field with a nett 66. This was a mere countback win from our greenkeeping dynamic duo of Chad Gilmour and his wife Sheena who also shot a 66 nett for a great day out.

In the non golfer partner category, Craig Filmer has teamed with son Aidan Filmer, a one-time Junior regular at the Club trying to entice him back into the fold. Aidan & Craig have shot a round 1 under nett to their genuine handicap but a 72 nett to their event handicap. Refreshment vouchers were awarded to good scores also from Sheena & Chad (66), Tam Kennedy & John Brownhill (69) & Jeanette & Peter Elliott (72).
