Torquay a blast despite arctic temperatures


Arctic conditions at the RACV Torquay event

A field of 33 players started in the shotgun start at RACV Torquay on Sunday 25 June. The course presented magnificently for the stroke event. It must be said, that despite predominately blue skies and no rain, the temperature struggled to reach double figures which made touch and feel around the greens even more difficult.

The cold conditions didn’t stop some hot scoring with three players breaking their handicap. It was Geoff M who conquered all with his score of net 67. Geoff took home a brand new Titleist carry bag which is sure to serve his future golfing endeavours well.

Finishing in second place to Geoff was Simon R who won on a count-back from Trent B on net 68. After these three scores, the next best was net 71 which highlights the difficulty all players faced on the course.

The novelty events provided players with an opportunity to walk away with a prize regardless of their overall performance. The nearest to pin (NTP) on the 3rd was won by Dillyn F and on the 17th was Glenn Foard. The longest drive on the 4th was taken out by Daniel A and on the 8th it was again, Simon R who collected the prize.
