22 May 2017

In sparkling conditions at Dunheved, the home team stole a march on the 7 visiting clubs with a strong performance on an excellent but demanding layout.

Despite all the recent rain and flooding the course was in superb condition and players were fully tested.

With only 6 players breaking ‘par’ (and 4 of these locals), Dunheved amassed 154 points, easily accounting for nearest rivals, Glenmore and Penrith, on 141 points. The best of the rest was Leonay on 131.  Dunheved now hold a 20 point lead in the Club of the Year.

Best scores on the day were achieved by Rod Sharples (Penrith) and Joe Sainsbury (Dunheved), whilst the ladies were headed by Sarah Dean (Glenmore) and Dot Willmington (Glenmore).

A full field of 143 players enjoyed their day out. Emus and kangaroos watched on in disbelief at some of the shots played but seem a contented lot basking on the shores of South Creek.

WSRVGA hosted the State Strokeplay Championships on 10-11-12 April and we were all thrilled to see a local, Laurie Cupples (Leonay) win the Championships for the first time in 25 years.

LEADING SCORES ON THE DAY:

41   Rod Sharples (Penrith)                  37 Sarah Dean (Glenmore)

41   Joe Sainsbury (Dunheved)          36 Dot Willmington (Glenmore)    

39   Ken Shepherd (Dunheved)          34 Mary Deevy (Penrith)

37   Doug Tillinghast (Dunheved)      31 Carol Patterson (Dunheved)

37   Roger Price (Dunheved)                30 Diane Bowen (Dunheved)
