Crookwell’s biggest weekend of golf for the year was held on the weekend, with Maccas Big A on Saturday and the Crookwell Veterinary Hospital Open on Sunday.
Forty-three players lined up for the start of the open day. Competitors were spread across several divisions and all looking for a share in the prizes.
The overall winner, and 2018 Crookwell Open Champion, was Mick Secomb with a score of 74.
Ladies Open winner was Patricia Nance from Coffs Harbour on 81. Patricia was also last year’s winner, so she has defended her crown.
Nett winners in all grades were: A grade A Gilbert 71, B grade John McAnulty 66 and C grade George Wosinski 70 on a count back.
The Junior Open Championship went to Rhys Secomb, who took the title with 35 points.
Prizes were also offered for nett runners up and stableford winners in all grades.
Saturday’s event, a four person ambrose, was played by 69 competitors with very generous prizes sponsored by Guy McIntosh.
Coming out victorious in this event was the team of Larry and Ray Kearney, Andrew Grove and Ben Hearne with a very good score of 14 under par off the stick.
With their handicap they were able to beat their nearest competitors by two shots, the team of Dan Costello, W Lucas, Pete and Tim Reid. Prizes went down to fifth place.
With so many visitors around for the weekend, many comments were made of the presentation of the golf course and the friendliness of the golfers, and all said they will be back and will bring more players, so the weekend will only get bigger.
The support of our sponsors, Crookwell Veterinary Hospital and Guy McIntosh greatly assisted the club with hosting these events, and the club is forever thankful.
The local pennant team also travelled to Murrumbidgee Golf Course on the weekend, and were soundly defeated in their match.
This gives them a win, a loss and a draw for the season so far with three matches remaining. This weeks golf is the monthly medal stroke round for March, with prizes sponsored by JD’s Hardware and Rural.
