Yearbook 2016 – Winter League Masters
On masters Sunday, 10 April 2016, our winter leagues got together again to battle it out to see who would be our own Masters champions for 2016.
9 Winter League teams of 12 players made up a full field of 108 players who filled both 9 and 18 hole courses in a 12 noon shotgun start.
We all enjoyed a great day of dry weather and good golf conditions.
The winners this year were “Chris’s Crackers” a great team led by one of our younger members who accumulated 277 stableford point between them.
The wooden spoon was received humbly by Frank McCormick after his team scored a total of 240 stableford points. Frank was very skillfully lumbered as team captain by the usual captain Billy Dixon as the buggies were off due to the wet fairways.
Runners up on 272 points was the “9 Hole Dream Team” led by Stevie McCafferty who can just be seen hiding behind Pat Gallagher.
Best doubles score on the 18 hole course went to Ross McWilliams and Lawrence Ngoma with 41 points and a better inward half.
Worst score on the 18 hole course was rewarded with a packet of tees each for Robert Wilkie and Sean Millar for their score of 30 points. At least they could see the funny side.
Best score on the 9 hole course went to Jim Maxwell with 38 points.
Worst score on the 9 hole course went to Ben McGhee with 14 points and that was going round the 9 hole course twice!
Nearest the pin at the 3rd was won by Calum Gallagher with a shot to 33″ missed my chance to get Calum’s picture with his dad Peter.
Nearest the pin at the 10th was won by Gordy Leith with a shot to 98″
Nearest the pin at the 13th was won by Duncan Sloan with a shot to 9’4″.
Hugh Lyden won nearest the pin at the 3rd on the 9 hole course with a shot to 103″.
Matt Bonnar won nearest the pin at the 8th on the 9 hole course with a shot to 58″.
Match officials Archie and Billy do the hard bit trying to make sense of some of the cards.
Billy amused us all at the prizegiving with Captain Peter Gallagher.
Oliver our professional raffled a great Callaway staff bag and the winner was Brian McLean.
