YOUNG GUNS FIGHT OUT 2015 MENS SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIPS

The 2015 Men’s Singles Championships concluded on Saturday 24th October with young stars, James Denniss and Darcy Boyd having an epic battle for the Champion’s title. Both players were level teeing off 15 and James stunned the crowd of followers by smashing his drive over the River Kwai to set up a solid 4 iron to the green and a two put birdie. Darcy responded with two solid shots leaving a 90 metre pitch for his third shot. Unfortunately for Darcy, the firm green saw a well struck pitch go over the back of the green leaving a very difficult up and down. The resultant bogey left James with a two shot lead that proved to be the difference. James returned scores of 76, 70, 75 &75 (296) whilst Darcy returned scores of 76, 76, 70 & 76 (298). Congratulations to both players on their great golf throughout the Championships. Many of the spectators following the final group that included Nathan Marsh and Peter Chatillon, were very pleased to comment on the outstanding sportsmanship displayed by the whole group.

We had many great performers over the grades for the four rounds including Senior Champion Peter Chatillon who returned scores of 72,76, 78 &81 (307) to have the equal third best total over the field tying Nathan Marsh (78, 75,77 &77).The B grade competition saw Mick Mayne (345) successfully defend his B grade crown defeating Dean Winton by six shots. In C grade, Alan Fallshaw finished strongly with a solid 93 giving him a four round total of 369 to overtake early frontrunner, Graham Pullen who finished on 371. Bob Smith won the inaugural Super seniors title (65+) with a great four round total of 325 whilst Ian Clark and Chris Vigors won the A Reserve and C reserve titles respectively. One of our promising juniors, Dylan Moore returned a creditable 295 net to win the A grade net. Another promising junior, Noah Miller had a great championship to finish with a net score of 291, one shot behind the C grade net winner, Michael Van Ryn.

The Committee would like to thank the greens staff for presenting the course in excellent condition over the four rounds and the proshop staff for once again proving they are the best starters in the business. Hopefully, members appreciate the effort from all our staff under trying conditions. Two recent major lightning strikes have caused havoc with our automated irrigation system, so greens staff have had to water the course manually for several weeks.

Following is a full list of the prize winners to be collected at our Presentation night on Saturday 5th December.
