Spring Cup 2018
When all the stars align, nothing beats a good day on the golf course.
ASK ANY GOLFER what makes a perfect game of golf and they will always nominate great weather, a challenging course, friendly playing partners and, finally, good scores. This year, for the Spring Cup, we hit the jackpot.
It was a beautiful sunny day with a cool breeze. The course was Stonecutters Ridge, the field of 34 were all great supporters of the AMA (NSW) Golf Society, and it was an incredibly high-scoring day as the number of countbacks required to reach all results will testify.
Stonecutters has become one the Society’s favourite venues, as it is a challenging course that rewards good play.
The winner of the AMA Spring Cup 2018 was a player who has supported the Golf Society since its inception, Mr Richard Ottley. Richard would be well known to many AMA members as a lawyer, formerly with the law firm, TressCox. Richard had a very credible score of 40 Stableford points. Our runner-up was the winner of the 2018 Autumn Cup, Dr Andrew Pennington, with a score of 39 points on a countback from Dr Michael Burke and Mr Scott Chapman.
Winners of the 2 Ball Best Ball were Dr John McGill and Dr Ian Meakin, on another hotly contested countback, with 47 Stableford points over Mr Richard Ottley and Mr Scott Chapman.
Nearest the Pins were taken out by Mr Steve Haldane and Mr Richard Ottley. Richard who is a member of Oatlands was certainly playing spectacular golf on the day as was witnessed by our AMA Medical Secretary, Dr Robyn Napier who played in his group.
A very special mention must be made of the hospitality that is always extended to us at Stonecutters. All members of the staff and the Pro Shop went out of their way to assist us through the day’s event. Well done to all of them. As is always mentioned after an event at Stonecutters, if you are a golfer and have not yet played there, make a point of organising a game. It is well worth the visit. Put it on your golfing bucket list. All up it was a great day as the scores reflected. The lunch provided after the game was, as always, excellent. In fact, the lunch has become folklore among members.
The final golf day on this year’s calendar is the very popular BMA Cup to be held at Terrey Hills Country Club on Tuesday 11 December 2018 with an early morning shotgun start followed by lunch. If you are a golfer, why not join us for this special event? You will be made to feel most welcome by your colleagues and slotted into a team.
