Pro – Captain’s Challenge
This popular monthly event on our Men’s calendar has proven to be a huge success.Each month The Pro and Men’s Captain play a matchplay round against two male members.In February we took on Ben Ulcoq and John Archibald and after a very tight match they finally prevailed on the 17th green winning 2up.Our success story for the year so far happened in March when we defeated Mitch Bauer and Mitch Curd 1up. April was a very interesting match versus Ken Whan and Barry Hunt … you never know what to expect playing against Ken however somehow they prevailed 2 up. In May it was a match up against Ian Harvey and Brett Coleman where a number of close putts didn’t drop and Ian and Brett finally won the match on the 16th green. Our match in June is set down for 30th vs Andrew Scherer and Ken Silcox and The Pro and Captain are due for a change of luck and a win. There are far too many members walking around proudly showing off their shirts they have won. This event is so popular that we are full booked for the remainder of the year. It must be said that it is an enjoyable format to play as Matchplay games are few and far between these days and the fun playing against the golfing members makes each match worthwhile.
