Good conditions for Stanthorpe stroke round

Pin shots were claimed by Scott Constable at three, Brad Silver at 12 and Barry Jones at 17. Jones also collected the pro-pin at 1/10. Rob Reeves at 5/14 and Mick O’Brien at 9/18. Lyn Ludlow and Lisa Stuart collect pin shots for the ladies.

Scott Constable, who sponsored the day’s play, also held a putting competition at the end of play.

Those who participated had a one chance putt to hole out at a fairly lengthy putt. The prize was substantial. The lucky winner would have their 2023 membership fee paid. Not surprisingly there were plenty of entrants keen to give it a good shot. There was plenty of excitement but alas no winner.
