AMA (NSW)’s Golf Society ventured north to the Central Coast’s Magenta Shores for their annual Autumn Cup. Voted among the top 30 best courses in Australia, it was a day to remember.
PERFECT AUTUMN weather welcomed 30 players at the magnificent Magenta Shores Golf Club for the 2018 Autumn Cup.
The event was unfortunately postponed from the previous week due to extreme rain and wind along the Central Coast.
The beauty of the course masks a very challenging layout and, as all players soon discovered, punishing bunkers and rough. The testing nature of the course was clearly demonstrated, as the overall scores reflected.
It is always pleasing to welcome first-timers to our events, but it is even more pleasing when they perform well. On this occasion our first-timer, Dr Andrew Pennington, took out the Autumn Cup with 34 stableford points. He also won the 2BBB with 41 points, ably assisted by our AMA Medical Secretary, Dr Robyn Napier. All golfers appreciate the contribution made by Robyn in that score, so well done Robyn! The 2BBB Runners Up were AMA former CEO, Mr Laurie Pincott and Andrew as the swinger with 40 points. Well done Andrew on your outstanding results. We look forward to welcoming you to all future events to give us mere mortal golfers a chance to challenge you again.
The Individual Runner Up was one of our very regular supporters, Dr John McGill on 31 points.
Nearest the Pins were taken out by Mr Chris Fairbairn and Dr Barry Duffy.
