2019 Autumn Cup
Warm weather and a fast green challenged members of the AMA (NSW) Golf Society during play for the Autumn Cup.
A full field of 44 golfers took on the challenge of the Elanora Golf Course to contest the 2019 Autumn Cup in March. The event opened the program for 2019. The course was in magnificent condition as the club’s championships were due to be held the following week.
As usual the hospitality extended to our group by the club was first class, which always adds to the enjoyment of the event for all concerned.
In particular, the greens were absolutely faultless and their speed on the day presented the biggest challenge for the players, with one or two exceptions, as the results confirmed. The weather was another major challenge with high temperatures and humidity, which took its toll on the overall scores.
The winner of the Autumn Cup was Prof Phil Crowe with 41 stableford points. In second place, with 35 points, was one of our great supporters, Dr Di Hart. On a quiet, personal note to Di, the members wish Roger all the very best. As is obvious from the gap between first and second place, it was a tough day at the office for the rest of us, and a tribute to Phil’s play – outstanding.
Winners of the 2BBB were Prof Phil Crowe and Dr Ross Glasson with 46 stableford points, which is also exceptional for the day. Runners up were Amgad Botros and Hyun Cha on 41 points.
Nearest the pins went to Dr John Mutton and Steve Nielsen. For both players it is appropriate to say that the difference between nearest the pin and a hole in one was a matter of a mere centimetre or two. Perhaps next time? It was also a pleasure to welcome back John and look forward to seeing him again at future events.
The following events make up the program for the remainder of the year:
- Presidents Cup – Thursday 13 June at Twin Creeks Golf Club
- Spring Cup – Friday 13 September at St Michaels Golf Club
- BMA Cup – Thursday 5 December at Terrey Hills Golf Club
The Golf Society welcomes all members to these events and suggests appropriate diary notes be made now. Why not put together a team and come along to enjoy the company of your golfing colleagues?
