Our annual weekend away was held on 16th and 17th May 2015 with 27 players and partners travelling to Coffs Harbour. This year we welcomed new members from Tenterfield. On the Saturday, 23 players participated in the Stableford Competition held by Coffs Harbour Golf Club. The only successful participant in that event from our group was Chris Rose who came second in the competition. Of course, the non-golfers enjoyed a day of retail therapy.
The weather on Sunday was not so kind and we woke up to an overcast and wet morning. However, it only deterred 7 players with 16 players braving the weather and participating in the competition held by the Sawtell Golf Club. Our “President–v-Captain” event was also played in conjunction with an Aggregate Stableford and Single Stableford events. Due to the conditions the scores were not that great. The winners were:
Mick Bruggy & Heather Chesham – 54 points
Lefties Men Winner: Steve McLean 31 pts – Runner Up: Chris Rose 27 pts
Righties Men Winner: Phil Chesham 29 pts – Runner Up: Alan Green 24 pts
Ladies Winner: Denise Simes 27 pts – Runner Up: Dot Rose 23 pts on c/b
Environmental Award: Lynne Hay 17 pts
The winner this year was the Captain’s Team who consisted of Chris Rose, Steve McLean, Mick Bruggy, Barry Clark, Eric Dries, Jan Lee, Denise Simes and Lynne Hay. The score was 196 to 190.
Congratulations to all winners and again thank you to all for making it such a great weekend we all enjoy and look forward to each year.
