Local golfers scoop Veterans

Two Wells hosted the Adelaide Plains and Barossa Veterans competition on Thursday June 13, which saw 65 players out on the course.

This was an excellent day for all players with Two Wells providing a fabulous lunch and an extremely enjoyable day.

Local knowledge proved to be quite valuable with Two Wells players, Gary Payne, Neil Bowden and Paul Shields taking out some of the major prizes.

With the course soft and luscious, the A graders have headed the scoring over the past month with Yogi Frencken winning twice, and combining with Les Grafton to take out the Applebee/Belcher Pinehurst Trophy.

Chris Girling has also been in some great form and carried that into the first round of the Club Championships with a 75 off of the stick to cement his favouritism.

Adam Bail has also put in some consistent rounds and leads the Club Trophy by a street at about the half way mark.

Steven Kelly must have been getting lessons from his son, Jack, over the last few weeks and it seems to have paid off with some good results in B grade.

The ladies, on Tuesdays, have been going strong with Kathy Stubing putting in some dominant rounds and Leanne Brooks playing some of her best golf.

If you would like to join us and try and tame our challenging little course and have a great day, visit the club this Saturday.

Golf starts at 11am with tee-offs until around 12.30pm and everyone in before 5pm for presentation of the day’s prizes and a chance to take home the much sought-after Virginia Meat Store meat tray raffles.

Ladies also play on Tuesdays around 9.15am and new members are always welcome.

The men also have a Thursday competition from 9.15am, usually followed by a BBQ lunch and a couple of beers.

Two Wells Golf Club also has a website; www.twowellsgolfclub.com.au, with a wealth of information about the course, competitions, membership information and everything else you need to know. Come out and play!

A quick reminder the Men’s Open Day is on July 28, and the Women’s Open Day on August 2. Good golfing everyone.
