Seventh consecutive challenge win

TW Golf 2

The last month of golf has culminated in the players travelling up to Hamley Bridge for the bi-annual Hamley Bridge/Two Wells Challenge.

The Hamley course was in the best condition it has ever been in.

Two Wells once again triumphed to make it four in a row. Seventeen players fronted from Two Wells, which was quite pleasing.

Club captain, Paul Shields bounced back from his NAGA the previous week and put together a fine round scoring 39 points, to take out A grade from Robert Hogg and Ian Smith.

B grade was taken out by Neil ‘Bluey’ Bowden with a great score of 38 points.

In second place and returning to some form was Hans Linford, followed by Jeoff Spackman.

After all had finished, the barbecue tea was demolished and scores tallied, –Two Wells had won the day with an average of 34.06 to Hamley’s 32.85.

A great day was had by all and we sincerely thank Hamley for their hospitality.

No doubt they will be trying their hardest to knock us off in the return match at Two Wells on August 9.

It has been great to see most of the weekly spoils have been shared around this month, but Robert Hogg and Gary Payne have continued some good play and Hans Linford has started to find some much needed form.

The Ambrose was also a great day this month, which saw our biggest field of the year with 28 players.

These are great numbers but more players would certainly be welcomed.

Kathy Stubing and Leanne Cannizzaro have put in some superb scoring in the ladies’ Tuesday competition, with 41 points and nett 70 respectively to take out the main prize in a couple of key competitions this month.

I’m sure the girls will be looking for more of these throughout the upcoming Club Championships.

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 after the day’s golf.

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! We would love to see you out there.

Also a quick reminder to members that it is time to get your handicap match play matches underway, Club Championships starts in a couple of weeks and get ready for the return of Night Golf on Friday July 4 from 6pm. Good golfing everyone.
