Classic win for Robinson and Hann

Jay Robinson and Warren Hann combined to win the 18-hole two-ball classic last Saturday, sponsored by the Muja Lads.

The game, played in a similar format to the Stoney Creek Classic, required some thought on drive selection to maximise scoring opportunities.

"Robbo" and "Wazza" did just that, scoring a total of 65 points, two points better than a trio of pairings who all finished with 63 points.

Using the countback criteria for this event, runners-up were Jim Moyses and Steve Farquhar from Chris Stewart and Alby Hunter in third place, then John Wray and Neil Motion coming in fourth.

Alan Kent and Len Hennighan were next, their total being 62 points, followed, on 61 points by the pairings of Mick Finlay and Bruce Jackson and David Carter and Cam Kett.

Next in were Ross Davidson and Ian Annandale, on 60 points, then came the pairings of Kim Metcalfe and Rob Cavanagh, Frank Battista and Ed Riley, Bruce Roberts and Peter Coombs and Brett Smith and Kalev Kutt, all on 59 points.

Besides the normal Saturday novelties, the sponsors also provided novelties for the remaining holes, a gesture appreciated by all the recipients.

Scroungers

Paul Goodwin backed up his great result in the previous week's scroungers competition by going one better last Thursday to again win the event with the terrific score of 24 points.

In form player, John Brown would consider himself a little unlucky to finish runner up after his good round of 23 points.

Alan Kent and Rodney Simmonds each scored 20 points, followed by Darren O'Brien, Trevor McCormick and Ross Davidson, each on 19 points.

Rounding out the vouchers, each with 18 points were Jim Moyses, George Dorozenko, Jim Tyler and Ed Riley.

Novelties were won by Trevor McCormick (1 and 4), Jim Tyler (6) and Ed Riley (9).

Ladies Wednesday

President Lesley Motion was the winner of last Wednesday's summer nine-hole stableford competition.

Lesley scored 17 points, winning the event by one shot from a quartet of players who each scored 16 points.

In countback order, these players were Lynne Simmonds, Jodie Allison, Rhonda Annandale and Annette Atherton.

Kaye Farquhar won the novelty for her nearest the pin shot on the par 3 fourth hole.

Leisure Day

For the second week running, John Brown was the winner of last Tuesday's 18-hole leisure day competition with the excellent score of 41 points.

Runner-up, four shots behind, on 37 points, by way of a countback was David Broadbent, from Ross Davidson in third place and Gary Old in fourth place.

Kim Metcalfe, also had 37 points to win the best vet award.

Hugh Annandale, Danny Cheng and Paul Goodwin each finished with 36 points while Trevor McCormick and Fred Bronickis rounded out the vouchers, scoring 35 points apiece.
