With plenty of “run” on the course with the dry spell scoring was solid in Saturday’s Stableford event in Crookwell golf.
Adam Keough was the star of the day, taking out B Grade with 40 points. A relative newcomer to the game, Adam is showing plenty of promise.
Father-son combinations have been prominent in the latest golf results, with three such teams taking out the top three places the previous week.
This time, Adam led his father Steve home in B Grade, with the elder Keough on a very good 38 points.
A Grade winner Gary Armstrong also had 38 to his credit, just ahead of John Simpson on 36.
The field of 25 wasn’t bad considering a large team of regulars chose the weekend to play the great courses at Yarrawonga, on the Murray River. No trophies reported back, but a good time had by all.
Back at home, nearest the pins went to John Mendl (1.1m on the 4th/13th) and David Scott (4.5m or so on the 7th/16th).
The ball comp. ran down to 35 points on a countback.
40 Adam Keough; 38 Steve Keough, Gary Armstrong; 37 John McAnulty, Carl Banfield, John Roberts; 36 John Simpson, Brian Dennis; 35 Terry Garnham, Keith Badgery, John O’Brien;
34 Tim McCarthy; 33 Chris Francis, Kath Neely; 32 Rod Hoare, Hal Rickard- Bell, David Scott, Toby Johns, Danny Picker; 31 Doug Kennedy, Graham Johns; 30 Barry Jordan; 29 Tom Rickard -Bell, John Mendl; 21 Brian Evans.
This Saturday’s event will be a single Stableford, with the Guzzler’s Mug there also to be won.
And an event to look forward to on the following Saturday, April 30 – the challenging Blue Ball competition where keeping the blue ball in play is the key to this team event.
The greens have recovered well from the recent rehabilitation and, considering the weather, the course is in excellent summer shape.
Tomorrow (Friday) night will be a special occasion – Kiwi Kafe cooks Martyn and David will be on the other side of the counter to join with members for a final meal before their departure.
For the occasion a special roast dinner will be available at a special (low) price, from around 6.30pm onwards.
Fortunately, the kitchen will remain in good hands and the high standard set by Martyn and David will be maintained.
All those members and visitors who have enjoyed the Kiwi Kafe menu and the company of David and Martyn are invited to come along to say thanks and farewell to this popular pair – who have a Victorian home ahead – with a trip to Europe also in the offering.
