This week the Orba Warblers travelled to Alenda Golf Club to be greeted with clear blue skies, a cold wind and a course in good condition with difficult to read greens. Today´s competition was a pair’s better ball stableford event for the annual Spring Trophy. Twelve pairs (including one ghost player) eagerly contested this popular event. Neither conditions nor the tricky greens proved to be of little consequence to our champions today and with a great score of 45 pts, Sylvia Mortensen and Peter Gibson were our worthy trophy winners. Runner’s up spot went to Sue Harrison and Roy Booth with 40 pts and taking third place, on count back, were Arthur Sullivan and Malcolm Monti with 39 pts. Nearest the pin prizes today were on holes 5 and 16 with Malcolm Monti and John Daniels taking the spoils on the respective holes. Two 2’s today on the difficult par 3, 13th hole were made by Barbara Pollitt and Jurgen Mortensen, both received a coveted Warbler ball for their achievement. Barbara finished the day off by winning the football card with Stockport and kindly donated her winnings to the Captain´s Charity bucket – thanks Barbara!
