Atotal of 80 players greeted the starter for Thursday’s stableford competition in cool but relatively dry conditions at the Mount Gambier Golf Club.

Michael Cutting topped the list to claim the $100 first prize with an impressive 40 points.

The 4 handicapper put together an impressive round of 72 off the stick including birdies on fives holes.

Leigh McCracken claimed second place by virtue of count-back from Dave Boyce and Robert Perryman with the trio all posting 38 points.

The ball rundown extended to 34 points with future British Open winner Blake Schroder claiming the last one.

Pro-shot on the 8th hole went to Gary Wilson with an impressive 9 iron to 84cm, while on the 16th Mike Griffiths was closer than anyone but, unlike Wilson, was unable to sink his birdie putt.

Saturday saw 106 players greeted with extremely cold weather and the scores generally reflected the tough conditions.

A plus 4 by Judson Wheatley was the best score of the day, which was also enough to claim the B grade win from Darren Griffin on plus 3.

In A grade Shane Brook finished on top with plus 2 from Tim Kenny on plus 1.

In C grade it was John Miles on square taking first place after a count back from Flynn Davison.

The ball rundown extended to minus 3 with the unlucky Tim Driver missing out on count back.

Nine players rolled in birdie putts on one of the par 3’s including Peter Waters Nick Black Clint Mitchell Archy Arch and Jeff Olafsen.

Black and waters claimed the pro-shot on holes 8 and 16 respectively.
