‘Doc’ shows his superiority in club champs

This month has culminated in the conclusion of the Club Championships.

Once again this year saw Chris ‘Doc’ Girling show his superiority over the rest of the members winning by a comprehensive 36 strokes.

The B grade Championship saw a close battle being fought out between Tim Clifton and the fast finishing Jim Weir.

Tim held on with a narrow three shot victory.

Congratulations to both champions and all of the players who took part over the four rounds.

Another highlight of the month was the Night Golf event held on Friday July 4.

Thirty-two players contested the event and it was great to see many new faces at the club, many of whom had never played golf before, so playing in the dark was certainly a challenge.

Winners on the night were the local boys, Tim Clifton, Neil Bowden, Michael Dimasi and John Boon.

Everyone had a fabulous night that for some went well into the small hours.

Adam Bail did a magnificent job organising the night and Stuart Grigg brought along four teams from BAE Systems.

Adam was last seen crawling out of his swag, having slept the night at the clubhouse and not waking up until being stumbled over as everyone arrived for golf the next day.

The Ladies on Tuesdays have continued to have a fun time and some solid golf with Julie Holland and Judi Frost setting the benchmark with multiple wins over the month.

The Stroke portion of Ladies Club Championships has concluded with the top four progressing to the Matchplay semi-finals.

These will see top seed Kathy Stubing taking on Leanne Cannizzaro and Julie Holland battling it out with close friend Elaine Grigg for spots in the final next month.

Good luck girls.

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 days 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 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.

A reminder the Women’s Open Day will be held on August 1 and the Hamley Challenge at Two Wells on August 9. Good golfing!
