Veterans tackle Kingston course

Despite the cool weather coming, the South East Veterans golfing competition continues to roll on with the latest round at the seaside location of Kingston.

The forecast for Kingston of drastic wintry weather deterred a lot of golfers, but nevertheless a strong field 35 fronted up and played the recent round.

Although they rugged up, they only endured one short five-minute squall and some took full advantage of the better than expected conditions.

But no one could stop the local boy Lyndon Cox from taking out Division 1 honours.

Cox was committed to defending his home turf and played a consistent round to card in a creditable 35 points. It proved to be just enough with another local Scott Gluyas and Barry Brook right behind him with 34 points.

Division 2 went to the old fox, Pat Ryan on his home track with an amazing total 37 points.

No one could keep up as Blue Lake’s Russ Lingham had no choice but to settle for second being a distant six points back, followed by Attamurra’s Max Clifford on 29.

Lingham had an eagle on the 13th, while the Ross Orchard Trophy went to Kym Sandford including a birdie, while John Howe had a good day snaffling the Scotch.

The nearest the pin awards were won by Terry Chant, Barry Brook and Peter Vile.

The season continues at Lucindale Golf Club with the start of a two-part event, the second being held Monday, July 4 while Naracoorte gets its turn to host the action on Monday, July 18.
