The 2015 Men’s Foursomes Championships were conducted on Saturday 7th Feb with great scoring being the order of the day.  The event had to be moved to an earlier date to avoid clashing with a CCDGA event and a capacity field greeted the starter for the 27 hole event. The 6th hole was back in play after a spell to assist recovery from an insect problem and the course was presented in great shape by our hardworking greens staff.

Steve Eaton and Nathan Marsh added to their previous victories in 2011 and 2012 by returning scores of 76 and 37 for a 27 hole gross score of 113 to become the 2015 Foursomes Club Champions. They narrowly defeated last year’s winners, Kenton and Darcy Boyd by 2 shots.  Notable scores of 120 gross or better were returned by Jake Eliasson & Chris Wayland (118), Sean McDonagh & Brad Rogers (118), Peter and Vaughan Chatillon (119) and David and Beau Willett (120).

Another highlight of the day was the exciting playoff victory in B grade by Craig Unger and Blake Hayhow over John Randy and Andrew McWilliam after both pairs returned great scores of 130 gross for the 27 holes.

It was wonderful to see club stalwarts, Howard Croswell and Graham Dickey pick up a Presentation Night prize for runners up in the C Grade nett.  Howard and Graham are great volunteer workers for the Club, assisting the office staff with the poker machine clearances three or four times a week. In addition, Howard works on the course with the Tuesday workers and Graham assists the Match Committee every Wednesday and Sunday finalising the competitions.

Special thanks go to Bill Brown for spotting the tee shots off the first tee for over four hours. This was great help to our pro shop starters to have every one tee off very close to or on time.
