FLINDERS CHALLENGE BOWL

THE MAKING OF HISTORY
History was made on the first day of the 104th Easter Tournament with a hole in one on the Par 4 1st being scored by Brett Mayor. The ball landed on the green and tracked towards the hole but the end result was in doubt due to the gloomy conditions and persistent drizzle. Upon arriving at the green Brett's reaction and those of his playing partners confirmed to those watching with interest from the 1st tee that he had indeed accomplished a feat not recorded previously at Flinders during an official competition.

104th ANNUAL OPEN EASTER TOURNAMENT

The tournament commenced on Good Friday with the Men's 4BBB Par event encountering somewhat inclement conditions with persistent rain and strong winds providing a challenge to both the AM and PM fields. Scott Bond and Allan Williams with +8 were the victors in the AM field that consisted of 38 pairs beating George Lyon and Syd Pomphrey also on +8. The PM field of 45 pairs was led in by Norm Cleland and Geoff Chambers with +7 on a countback from Phil Redley and Kevein Cairns on +7.

The early players in the Mixed Foursomes on Saturday were greeted with steady rain and with very little wind it took sometime for the weather to clear. Tony and Jane Kiel managed the conditions admirably with an excellent score of 41 points in the AM field narrowly giving them victory over Craig and Denise Kibby on 40 points. In the PM field Sandra Shiel and son Flinn followed up their good form in the Club mixed foursomes championship with a solid 38 points to edge out John and Aileen Smith on 36 points.

On Easter Sunday the Women's 4BBB Par field of 36 pairs was greeted by much brighter conditions with Michele Craigie and Sue Cutten combining for a solid +7, just edging out Angela Alcock amd Judy Sandner who scored +6.

The Men's Easter Open field teed off on Monday in benign conditions which were soon to change as a strong north easterly swept the course. With a small but strong field assembled a close contest was envisaged and the final result was as expected with three player tieing on 73, with a countback providing Greg Wilson a follow up victory on his 2013 achievement over Chris Morgan and Paul West. The best net score was Adrian Smith with a fine round of 77 off a 9 handicap producing a net 68. The B and C grade fields contested an individual stableford event with the B grade winner being John Hall with 40 points and Neville Hall winning C grade with 35 points on a countback.

A small field of lady players contested for The Ladies Open Easter Championship on Tuesday.  Several hours of continuous early morning rain deterred some players but the rain stopped right on cue for the 8.30am commencement of play and stayed away.  Angela Dunn, now from Woodlands Golf Club was victorious with a score of 79.  The best net score winner was Heather Cameron with an excellent round of 86 off a 15 handicap, producing a net 71. The B Grade winner was Jan Andrews from Kew Golf Club, Jan took out both the gross and the net prize.

Vickie Lucas presented the A.J. Lucas Cup to winner Heather Cameron.  The Cup is presented to the Flinders member with the best net score of the day.
