Wagga City Golf Report 15-11-2017


After two rounds of the Wagga City Golf Club Championships, there is nothing between our two best golfers, Kyle Harrison and Mick Hazell, who look set to fight it out for the big prize over the final two rounds on Saturday and Sunday. A full report of the event will be in next week’s Golf Report.

As far as handicap scores are concerned, last Saturday’s third round saw Chris Ayton score 70 nett to win A Grade on a c/b from Josh Veliscek, with Roman Adamcewicz third on 71 nett. In B Grade, Tony Merrigan ran hot with a 64 nett for a decisive win, from Peter Biscaya 67, and John Messing 68 nett. Ray Barnett also played well to claim the C Grade voucher. NTP’s:  Roman Adamcewicz, Peter Conlan and John Dare. Ball comp to 70 nett.

Last Wednesday’s members’ stableford, and John Dare continued his recent good run with 38 pts for a c/b win from Max Horsnell in the A Grade event, while Bruce Chalmers had the same score to win B Grade, on a c/b from Ross Hollis. NTP’s:  Brian Smith, Ray Barnett and John Mooney. Ball comp to 34 pts on a c/b.

The ladies got last Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup festivities off to a flying start by playing in a best-ball stableford event. Honours went to the team of Jan Marks, Anne Turner and Trish Gray with 41 pts, while individual prizes were collected by Carmel Pearce 39 pts, Sue Matthews 37 pts on a c/b from Marg Hogan, and Sue Oakman 35 pts. NTP’s:  Doreen Hazell, Anne Turner and Janene Fitzgerald.

The girls returned on Friday for a single stableford event, and in Div 1, Marg Hogan scored well for 39 pts for a win, from Gloria Vonarx 37, and Anne Leonard 36 pts. Glad Leitch won Div 2 with 38 pts, from Jan Leonard 33, and Carmel Pearce 32 pts.

The vets welcomed a number of visitors to last Thursday’s nine-hole stroke event, however it was a local, Tony Thompson, who cleared out from the field with 25 nett, followed by Charles Baker and Ron Culgan 21 nett, Chris Morrow 20, and Bernie Mogford and Dave Bussenschutt each on 19 nett.

A big week of golf wound up with Tim’s nine-hole Sunday stableford comp, which went to Peter McDonald with 22 pts, from Gary Rake 21, while Chris Ayton followed his big win on Saturday with 20 pts for third spot.
