A small field of 16 golfers took to the Penola Golf Course on Saturday in near perfect conditions for a par round, coinciding with the 5th Round of the President’s Trophy.
Score of the day went to Ant Mathys in B-Grade who finished with a +1 on countback from Paul Harmer. In third place was John Wilkinson with a -2 on countback over Shane McPherson.
In A-Grade, Leo Price continued some good form finishing even, this was on the back of a 74 off the stick at Thursday golf. In 2nd, Jeremy Briggs took the honour over Nathan Williams, both with a -1 while Peter Lunnay rounded out the top 4 with a -2.
The nearest the pin winners were Greg Hutchesson on the 9th while Williams claimed the best 2nd on the 12th. If any player had managed to hit the green on the 7th they would have won that prize but all 16 golfers failed to do so.
The NAGA was hotly contested with 4 players tied with a -8, each receiving a quarter of a cherry ripe bar.
Next Saturday will feature a stableford competition and the 5th Round of the Captain’s Trophy. Tee-off from 11:30. All welcome.
As a reminder, a Special General Meeting will be held at the clubrooms of the Penola Golf Club on Wednesday, 2nd August at 5:30pm. Details via the club noticeboard, website or from the Secretary.
