Over the last two Sunday’s twenty one teams of men and women competed for the Mixed Foursomes Championship and the Wotton Trophy (best nett score).
Congratulations to David Ferguson and Virginia Wozniak winning the championship with rounds of 81 and 77 totalling 158.
David and Virginia also won the Wotton Trophy with a combined nett score of 140.
Well done to all teams and it was great to see our members room full to overflowing on both Sunday’s.
Today, Monday 19th, the tree trimmers were back with the 10th hole getting some long needed attention. Looking from the tenth tee, the right side has been cleared of overhanging branches and dangerous trees removed. The white ant damage to two of the trees was so severe that less than 10mm thickness of tree trunk was remaining. The tree on the left at the start of the fairway have also been trimmed.
Most significantly, the pines (left side opposite the 100m marker) have been trimmed and look completely different. One of the large pines had to be removed due to the top section being rotten. The left gum tree on the right side was trimmed as well. See the photos below of the new look...
Warwick Armstrong Trophy...
Mixed Foursomes Championship & Wotton Trophy
Yesterday, Sunday, was the first round of the Mixed Foursomes Championship with 20 teams competing.
A great day, albeit, quite chilly during the last few holes. It was great to see the clubhouse full and the open fire roaring to warm everyone up.
The front runners, so far, with good rounds are, Darryl Purchase & Susan Harrison; David Ferguson & Virginia Wozniak and Wayne Knapp & Michelle Alcock.
Good luck to all in the final round next Sunday.

Congratulations to Alan Weston with his hole-in-one on the 14th hole last Wednesday. A great achievement and may there be many more to come.
It's been a couple of year since the last hole-in-one so it's good to see another name going on the board.
I keeping with our tradition, Alan kindly put a "wee dram" on the bar for fellow members to share the celebrations. (click on the images to enlarge them)
