Club President Geoff Harris congratulates Hole-In-One specialist, Uri Ylinen

Most golfers dream of getting just one, but long-time member Uri Ylinen scored his fifth Hole-In-One on the 128-metre 13th, on Sunday.

Uri is a bit of a 'Hole-in-One specialist', having already scored three Holes- in-One on this Par 3, and another on the Par 3 15th. Well done Uri!

Thursday's competition was a Medley Singles Stableford played in three divisions, and we welcomed lots of visitors from far and wide, with many good scores returned.

Mark O'Keefe (11) from Muirfield took out Division 1 with 39 points, from Colin Wormleaton (8) on 38 points. Denys Tobin (14) won Division 2 with 38 points from Warren Fuller on 35 points. Derek Wynn (31) won Division 3 with 39 points from Mark O'Beirne from Toukley on 37 points.

Peter Dawe got the longest putt on 2, and NTP's went to Phil Mander on 5, John Nettleton (Muirfield) on 7, Matthew Leese a great shot to 89cms on 8, Reg Harris (The Ridge) on the Pizza 13th, Colin Wormleaton on 15, and Marshal Graham (Bayview) got the Pro Pin Jackpot on 18.

Balls went down to 31 on countback.

Saturday's weather was cloudy and much cooler, making for more pleasant playing conditions for over 100 members and visitors competing in a Medley Single Stableford in three divisions.
