You’d think that a league day in the middle of February would bring sun, heat and a lot of flies. You’d be wrong!
The opening event on the MDGC calendar greeted players with occasional wind on a cool overcast day with near-incessant drizzle.
Eighteen players braved the morning round, with most struggling to cope with the conditions – only eight players scored under par (after handicap). Eleven stayed for the afternoon, with two latecomers joining the happy throng – just five played under par (after handicap).
As has become customary, the February league day contributes both rounds to the annual competition. Jay Ros won in the morning and Nick Valentini took out the afternoon round with a handicap score nearly 12 under par (that handicap is going to change!).
The morning CTB (on hole 1) was won by Oscar Fehlberg and the afternoon (hole 10) by Jeff Brunsting.
On his final hole of the afternoon round, Claus Sitnokow – a first-time league player threw the sweetest ace on hole one and took out the (approx.) $140 pool. Well done!
Our next league event will be held on Sat, 21st March at Stony Creek Reserve. Check out the event calendar for more information.
