Loretta and Phil Green victorious
Congratulations to Loretta and Phil Green who have won the Golf Illawarra playoff in the Keno Mixed fourball championship. Playing on a cold and windy day at the Highlands golf club with slick greens and running fairways, Loretta and Phil have scored a very good score of 43 points to defeat all other teams from Golf Illawarra clubs and have won their way through to the state playoffs to be played at Bonville Golf resort later in the year. This is an all-expenses paid week of golf and is a highly sort after prize. Congratulations Loretta and Phil. Our other pairs Lance and Robyn and Tom and Di also performed credibly each scoring 39 points which gave them top 12 finishes. Congratulations to all our representatives.
Another junior makes his mark
Just as the members get a little respite from young Nathan then his friend Jaimie Killmore steps up to the plate scoring 45 points on the weekend and pairing with Peter Hughes to win the fourball with 50 points on a countback from the Turners. Our junior stocks are certainly looking good with these two.
