Mark Boller wins October monthly medal at Eden Gardens

Eden Men

The October monthly medal and the playoff for the yearly bowl attracted 50 members on Saturday, October 6, at the pristine Eden Gardens Golf Course.

Division one and medal winner was Mark Boller who fired a superb round of 64 nett playing off a 14 handicap.

The consistent Paul Hutchinson was the runner-up with a two off the pace 66.

He also recorded the best scratch score of the day with four over par 75.

In division two Jess Mitchell showed his class with an excellent round of 66.

He defeated Colin Clarke who amassed 69 nett with many excuses.

In the ball rundown members needed 74 or better, with Robyn Skitt winning the Golden Shot on the 18th.

Next Saturday members and visitors will confront the starter for a four-ball Stableford.

Playing off the red tees 13 players on Saturday contested a single Stableford in wonderful conditions.

Dads Army

Possibly due to daylight savings only 10 players greeted the starter for a single Stableford playing off the front nine.

Craig Fredericks was right on target when he landed 24 points on a countback to defeat Dale Boyce for victory.

Craig also won the nearest the pin on the third hole.

Wayne Lyons is looking forward to next Sunday in the hope he will evade the dreaded “Rabbit Trap”.

The troops do it all again next Sunday morning in a Stableford Event playing off the yellow tees.

Visitors are most welcome to join these very dedicated players on Sunday mornings.
