Saturday December 21st – Ambrose “The Old Course”
Ten teams teed up for the club’s Presentation Day Ambrose competition. The day was clear and sunny but a gusting southerly wind kept everyone on their toes, especially on the par 3s and the final hole with its internal “out of bounds”. The field moved quickly and everyone was back in the rooms by around 2.30pm ready to enjoy the club’s presentations and a great meal. The Par 45 “Old Course” layout has proven very popular in recent years with many players observing nine holes is too short and 18 is too long, the 12 is just right (Apologies to Goldilocks). On a windy, enjoyable day the results were;
Winners; Mitch Atlas/Sherif Abdel Sayed/Michael Nicholls Jnr – 42/6/36 from Keith Hocking/Mick Nicholls Snr/Mal Mottram – 44/6.5/37.5 & Bruce Robb/Lorraine Robb/Paul Green – 50 /12.2/37.8
NTPs; 8th – Mick Squire, 9th – Jim Patton & 10th – Mitch Atlas
