TWO HUNDRED and thirty rounds of golf were played last week in Leeton’s largest social sporting activity the evergreen Twilight Golf Competition.
The scorching heat last Thursday and Friday kept a few away as did the playing of the Club Championships possibly also.
The temperature wasn’t the only thing that was hot, the scores were unbelievable.
Kerren Barnes grabbed the Superwash Carwash and Twilight Cap as the Player of the week returning a seven under 29 nett only to win on a countback from Titleist staff player Adam Chilko who was the unlucky bridesmaid so to speak. Michael McColl, Robbie O’Callaghan and Brendan Greatz all had brilliant 30s, Keith Fletcher, Lorraine Kefford, Nick Rendina had a 31 as did Nath Lucchese who parred the course in the heat last Friday night whilst sampling some of Benny Best Buy’s Carlton Zero’s. A host of players were on 32 and the ball comp slipped out to 34 for the first time this year.
Last seasons overall champions had the best team score of the round with 162 followed by Murrami Magic on 168, the Floggers on 171 and Dimpled Balls 172 also had cracking team totals for week five. Teams who still have not filled all eight places in their side should contact Jason as there are singles looking to join in and start playing straight away.
