Warialda Men’s Golf Report – 31 October 2021
Sunday’s ‘Cha-Cha-Cha’ had massive prize money on offer, similar to the Players’ Championships, due to very generous sponsorship from Reardon, Smith, and Kilner. The winners of the day and receiving the large paycheck were John McDonald, Harold Rose, and Geoff Hague. The runner-up position was filled by Clem Gordon, Richard Gray, and the ‘drawn from the hat’ swinging partner. In third place were the sponsors, Billy Reardon, David Smith, and Tom Kilner.
The rules of the popular mystery ball draw are that you can win a nearest the pin prize and still be eligible for the mystery draw. On Sunday, Mark Smith, David Coulton, and Rhys Aleckson achieved a feat that will probably never be repeated. Rhys won the A-grade pin shot on the third, Dave won the all-in fifth and Captain Shark won the B-grade ninth and their card came out as the mystery ball winners.
Craig Lockhart defeated Don Stevenson in the B-grade Matchplay Final, meaning he will meet Wade Turner, the A-grade winner, to play for the prestigious Gobbert Shield. The winner will be announced the Matchplay Champion of the Club on Presentation Night.
At 6:30 on Saturday 6 November our year of golf will be celebrated at Presentation Night. Please put your names down at the bar. An 18-hole Individual Stableford sponsored by Warialda Men’s Golf will be played on Sunday 7 November. On Sunday 14 November the David Rose Memorial Inter-Town Challenge will be played at Warialda. For your calendar, the Men’s Golf AGM will be held on Sunday 12 December.
This week’s ‘some old, some new, but all funny and true!’ quote is from American professional baseball player Chris Codiroli: “My handicap? Woods and irons.
