Barden Ridge – Round 7

  • August 28, 2018

The Shire’s Barden Ridge Golf Course was the venue for Round 7 of the RMYCPH Golf Club. Tee-ing off in cold breezy conditions, it took the thirty hardy golfers few holes to warm-up.

Once warmed-up the Stableford points flowed with 5 golfers handing cards with 36 points or better.


John Stewart had a cracker round, proving brute strength and youth are no match for treachery, guile and experience.

The Individual winner for Round 7 at Garden Ridge was John Stewart with 43 points.


Unlucky runner-up with 41 Stableford points and longest drive on the 9th (B Grade) was Ian Hillman.

Ian laughed-off the cold conditions following a week’s full-on, sub-zero training regime in the Perisher snowfields.


What a team ! Very satisfied winners of the teams event with 148 Stableford points were … (L/R) Golf Club President Vic Raco, young Tom Bruce, cool, calm and collected Pete Dowsett and making up the foursome the in-form John Stewart.

Runners-up in the team event with a total of 123 pts were Mike Barlow, Bruce Crosby, Dennis Klein and Commodore Bob Lay.


Graham McAlpine scored nearest the pin on the 11th hole.

Bryce scored nearest the pin on the 8th hole.


Big hitting Brooke Dibben making a welcome comeback had the longest drive (A Grade) on the 18th hole.


Paul Thomas had a solid round scoring 33 Stableford points and hitting the longest drive (A Grade) on the 9th hole.

    
Sharing The Don with 4 points for the round, obviously feeling the ccccold, were Nigel Snashall & Charlie Vella
