Golf Society: Close Competition
- On November 11, 2016
- NSW Doctor
Challenging conditions made for some close scores at this year’s annual Spring Cup competition, held at the popular Terrey Hills Golf Club.
The AMA Golf Society Spring Cup was held at the very popular Terrey Hills Golf Club this year. A magnificent Spring day welcomed 32 golfers and the course was in immaculate condition, with the greens presenting a real challenge for the best of us.
The winner on a ‘last six holes’ count back with 37 points was Mr Gary North and runner-up Mr Hutch Ranck. To show how close the results were the next five players were on 36 points and again on an extended count back, Prof Brian McCaughan took out third place.
NTPs went to Mr Paul Betar and Dr Rajiv Shah. The entire field commented on the difficulty of the greens with some of the worst reading our members have experienced for a long while. The 2BBB was won by Dr Greg Crosland and Mr David Cocks. Runners-up were Mr Chris Fairbairn and Mr Ric Dent.
The Society’s final event for the year will be the highly anticipated BMA Cup at NSW Golf Club on Friday 2 December. The winner of the Albert and Mary Shepherd Trophy will be announced on the day. The winner of this trophy is the AMA member who has recorded the highest aggregate of scores at the previous year’s BMA Cup and one of the other Cup events held during 2016.
The Committee is looking forward to welcoming all Society members to future events. Good golfing everyone.
SPECIAL NOTE: At the time of writing, the news has just come through that one of the all-time great golfers Mr Arnold Palmer had passed away aged 87. A quote from Jack Nicklaus sums it up for all of us, “I think he brought a lot more to the game than his game.” Vale Mr Palmer.
