Some problems with the irrigation system saw no water on the course for two days, again we were fortunate in that the weather was reasonably mild so not too much damage done. Great work from Les Gaunt & Ron Walker soon had everything back on track. The 3rd round of the Summer Cup got underway on a hot, still afternoon. Hard fairways saw many drives far closer to the green that usual and all those who could pitch accurately were in for good day. The greens had survived the enforced dry very well and watering over night saw them holding very well. As the round progressed a southerly breeze blew up and then wobbled to and from the south-east. Every now and then a gust would see balls move well off line. Posting a good score meant playing consistent golf, there was no room for a “wipe” . The final results saw a wiley old veteran, one of the club’s young guns and “The Pres” fight it out over the final few holes. The day also saw $113 raised for Cancer Research as part of the Drummond Golf “Golf 4 a Cause” program. On a dry course on a breezy afternoon the results were;
Winner; Anthony Lakey (22) – 43 pts from Mick Nicholls Jnr (16) – 41 pts, Bruce Robb (32) – 40 pts & Mick Squire (7) – 36 pts
Women’s Winner; Liz Manktelow (21) – 30 pts
NTPs; 15th – Mick Nicholls Jnr
All of Romsey Golf Club would like to congratulate RGC member and multiple club champion, Dean Jones, on his recent elevation to Cricket Australia’s “Hall of Fame”. Well done Deano!
