Captain’s Report – The Lakes 2020
The 2020 game at the famous Lakes course was moved from our traditional June date in an effort to avoid the disastrous weather of the past two years.
The plan worked out, barring a light shower at one point, to get the field of 42 players through the 18 holes comfortable and dry. The southerly breeze was enough to test us all and made scoring difficult.
The course was presented in great condition, as usual, with demanding length on some holes and accuracy required on others.
The average score on the day was around 29 points with only two players playing to their handicap. Special mention to new member Richard Harris who managed a very impressive Eagle 3, on the Par 5 14th, the famous Greg Norman Hole, sinking a long put on that undulating green.
Congratulations to the following winners:
Rod Wheatley / 36 points C.B
Individual runner up:
Karim Hussain / 35 points C.B
2 Ball Aggregate Winners:
Rod Wheatley and Joe Monorchio / 71 points
2 Ball Aggregate Runners Up:
Portia Hill and Paul Nikitaras / 68 points
2 Ball Aggregate Third:
Barry Morcom and Colin Billyard / 64 points
Portia Hill / 36 points

Our next game is at Cyprus Lakes, Hunter Valley against our Newcastle counterparts, on Friday 27th March 2020. Let’s hope we can take a good size team up there to try and retain the trophy. Some of us are staying overnight after the game. For more details contact myself or Graeme Degnan.
