Inaugural Mangrove Mountain V The World.

October 18th was the date for the inaugural Mangrove Mountain members V The World (or every non Mangrove Mountain person that played) event held at the highly regarded Newcastle Golf Club at Stockton.  27 players teed-off on a warm sunny day. Depending on your allegiance but I am happy to, report that on this occasion The World were successful 330 points to 326. A very close encounter and no doubt the Mountain men will be seeking to reverse the result next time.  Individual winner on the day were;

Lefties Winner                Warwick Stanwell 33 c/b
Runner-up                       Marshall White 33 c/b

Righties Winner              Ben Hedley 32 c/b

Ladies Winner                 Steph Raymond 33

2Ball Winners                  Bruce Richardson and Craig McHatton 46points

The Tony Barr annual point score event progress following Newcastle                

Warwick Stanwell            31
Bruce Richardson            25
Peter Aroney                   20
Marshall White                20
Col Aldrick                       18
Geoff Martin                    16  

With just the one event to go Warwick seems to have the top spot in his keeping but the second prize could come down to the wire. Bruce certainly had plenty of practice in South Australia

Next Event:

Our final event for the year is at prestigious Avondale Golf Club at West Pymble. This will be a 1.00pm shot-gun start. At the conclusion of play finger food will be served plus we will hold our Annual General Meeting. Formal notice will be issued shortly and if you would like to take on a committee role and/or an executive position an appropriate nomination form will be included with the notice.

2018 National Championships

This year saw one of the smallest representations from NSW Division participate in the National Championships in South Australia. It would be good if we could reverse this at the 2019 event. Despite the small numbers we did have a couple in the prize list namely;

Michael Maynard won the A Grade Gross and

Bruce Richardson ‘B’ Grade Net Runner-up

Congratulations Michael and Bruce!

2019 National Championships

Tasmania will be the host of the 2019 championships. The event will be held at the highly regarded Royal Hobart Club, November 17th - to 22nd. Please note your diary. Tasmania is a great place to holiday and enjoy a game of golf.

Enjoy your next round.
