2016 MENS FOURSOMES CHAMPIONSHIPS
SPONSORED BY RICK CURTIS MEATS
The 2016 Men’s Foursomes Championships were conducted on Saturday 6th Feb with a south easterly breeze testing the players. The event is played each year during the February daylight saving period to enable the capacity field to comfortably complete 27 holes. The course was presented in great shape by our hardworking greens staff with the greens in particular in spectacular condition.
The new combination of James Denniss and Sean McDonagh played brilliant golf to return scores of 75 and 39 for a 27 hole gross score of 114 to become the 2016 Foursomes Club Champions. The score remarkably included an 11 on the 12th hole and an 8 on the 19th hole meaning they played the other 25 holes 3 under par! They narrowly defeated the father and son combination of Peter and Vaughan Chatillon who returned 116 for the 27 holes.
Another highlight of the day was the narrow victory in B grade by Brian Clemow and Bruce Davidson who came from the clouds with a third nine score of 44 (total 136) to win by a single shot from three other pairs. Brian won the long drive story of the day, having returned from Queensland in time to play in the event.
Early starters had a lengthy delay after the first eighteen as the first tee was fully occupied for over four hours. Brian Rudd and Gary Brown took advantage of the break to stay relaxed for the third nine. They returned an excellent score of 142 for a 5 shot victory over Ian Hampson and Tim Mclean.
Special thanks go to Robyn Dickey and Kate McKinnon for processing all the cards with some welcome help later on from Theresa Lonergan and Daniel Wallace. Our pro shop starters once again did a great job to have every one tee off very close to or on time.
