It was another record breaking year for the THSG golf day with great support from the members at ROWGC. This year 30 teams took part in the best 2 from 4 format and with the weather set perfect, the course firm/fast we were in for some low scoring. We had a great mixture of teams with mens, ladies and juniors all playing in the day.
The early pace starters certainly made the most of the cooler conditions and the fresh greens, most notably TeamLawrence, consisting of Pete Lawrence, Sally Lawrence, Jessie Lawrence and Hugh Elliot scoring a brilliant 99pts. Their was plenty going on out on the course, it wasn't all about the low scores......on the 7th hole Niall was our Professional for the day in the beat the pro competition. This year we made it a little different and i am happy to say Niall didn't quite bankrupt us and managed to hit the green enough to make some money for the juniors. Most notably our junior captain Liam Greig and his brother Jay managed to beat Niall winning 7 prov1 golf balls.
Our THSG Tigers also took part in the beat the pro competition challenging Niall "their hero"!! They had an awesome time out on the course watching all the groups go through on the 7th hopefully inspiring them to play in the competition in the near future.
The day certainly belonged to one team and for the second year running the THSG Golf day was won by an all ladies team. Sally Fycun, Fiona Lucas, Sarah Forrest and Jen Gladwyn enjoyed the conditions and returned a score one better than TeamLawrence. 100pts was enough to the take the title and top spot. Their unbelievable score included the best front 9 of any team with 55pts. Their exceptional play shows the strength of the ladies section here at ROWGC. Well done Ladies.
One of the main reasons for the day was to raise funds for the future development of junior golf at the club. Over the past few years we have been lucky enough to introduce and development some great young golfers to the club, that have come from our schools and academy programs. We certainly couldn't have done it without the fantastic support we have received from the members at ROWGC which we are very grateful for. Our junior forum which was formed 3 years ago also do a sterling job for the section, organising team matches, club competitions, away days and coaching development days at the club. This wouldn't be possible without the funding that is raised through days like these and very kind donations from other initiatives run by the members. I would like to thank everyone that has been a part of developing the juniors at the club and making these days so successful.
