News from the Club Captain – 19th October 2020

Close Finish in PMGC Men’s Open

The Weekend of the 17th and 18th of October saw the 55th Men’s Open held at Pambula Merimbula Golf Club. Competitors travelled from many clubs in NSW & ACT with a strong contingent coming from Mallacoota. In a thrilling finish David Armstrong from Gold Creek followed up his first round of 72 with a 74 to finish one shot ahead and become the Open Champion. Harry Peterson (Concord) had the round of the weekend on Sunday with a great 70, but with his 77 from Saturday he finished 1 behind David. Harry was Scratch Runner-Up on a countback from PMGC’s Nick Crundall who also played well with rounds of 76 and 71.

In accepting his prizes David commented on the quality and condition of the golf course and thanked the major sponsors Lucerne Investment Partners and Glenn Warne Golf Professional.

The other Scratch winners were B Grade: David Bothamley (PMGC) with rounds of 85 & 87 and C Grade: Bernard Keating (PMGC) with rounds of 86 and 99. In the handicap division the winners were all from PMGC with Ian Ashton winning A Grade. He had 143 on a countback from Vince Ashcroft (Tathra). Neville Bridge won  B Grade and was the winner of the overall net prize with 143c/b. Bruce Gaunson won C Grade with 146.

Earlier in the week the 27 Hole PMGC Ladies Foursomes Championships was also decided. It was pleasing to see the large number of entries which enabled three divisions to be run in this competition. This event which was sponsored by McDonalds and NAB was also closely contested. Club Champions for 2020 were Anne Pointon and Leanne Munt with 123. They finished one shot ahead of Kate Walker and Cheryl Ramsay. B Grade Champions were Miep Kretching and Pam Appleby 143 and C Grade Champions were Jane Burgess and Chris McMullen with 146.

In coming events October 31 and November 1 sees the Annual Lions Club Fairway Weekend at PMGC. This promises to be a great event with the traditional Medley Stableford round on Saturday and a 4 Ball Ambrose on Sunday. The Lions Club also provides some great food and fun activities on the day.
