ANOTHER day of ideal conditions greeted golfers at the Pink Lake Golf Club last Thursday for the weekly scroungers event, this time sponsored by corporate sponsor Dick’s Electronics. Despite the calendar telling us we are in the depths of winter, the weather could not have been better and for the fourth time this year Ray Davis again showed the way when he carded the modest winning score of 36 points. Davis has been in red hot form in recent weeks and has worn a path to the podium to collect the winner’s prize. His run of good form has been rewarded with some healthy handicap adjustments and he now plays off 10 with single figures now firmly in his sights.
Second place went to another regular podium performer in Chris Stokes when he came in with 35 points narrowly ahead of Chas Brodie-Hall on 34 who also collected the best Veteran’s prize. At the other end of proceedings it was the turn of Les Grant to greet the judge in one of his rare off days. The novelty prize winners were Ken Hocking (2), Stu Gleeson (2), Les Grant, Ray Davis and Brodie-Hall with Davis and Keech both receiving 2’s Club membership.
As daylight hours are still short players are asked to play promptly to avoid finishing in the dark. Hit off from midday for next week’s Esperance Freightlines monthly mug. Visitors are welcome.
