Saturday April 22nd – Final Algie Mitchell Shield & Par.
With temperature hovering around 20C and virtually no wind it looked to be a good day for a round The final of the Algie Mitchell Shield, Mal Mottram Vs Davey Kenney, both generally long and straight off the tee, looked to be an evenly matched competition. The short game would most likely decide the day. All others played Par, often a frustrating game but one the purists call the fairest of all however, not sure how many purists were in the field. With the course in top condition and the weather excellent there were a number of very good scores. The Algie Mitchell final was close fought all day and it was all square going down the 18th, the course’s most difficult hole. In the end both players pared but as one had a shot that was the shield. It was a top effort by both, the loser shot four under his handicap the winner shot five under. On a stunning day to be out on the park the results were;
1st; Mitch Atlas (9) +3 C/B
2nd; Mick Nicholls Snr (25) +3
3rd; Jenny Hartley (20) +2
NTPs; 1, 15 & 16 – Luke Lyons
