Iluka Presidents Vs Captains day

Posted on by in Sports

Captains team, Peter ‘Macca’ McCurtayne, proudly holding the winning trophy with all its history and humour, giving the Captain bragging rights for the next year.

Last Sunday the club played off the Presidents Vs Captains golf day, being a single Stableford event combined with individual winners for both teams. The weather played its part and after an early shower it stayed dry and very pleasant.

The annual Presidents Vs Captains playoff is a major day in the fixture book with the trophy dating all the way back to 1979. The handmade trophy certainly holds a valued and humorous history with all players keen to be on the winning side.

This year the Captains team got up by a slim margin of 5 points with a total of 486 points to the Presidents team total of 481 points. The Presidents team promptly called for an ‘audited recount’ but was quickly rebuffed by the Captain, Peter McCurtayne, who proudly declared his team the winners and held the trophy aloft.

The individual winners for the Captains team were Jim Wride and runner up Stewart Halse. For the Presidents team the winners were Bob Wissink and runner up Geoffrey Prentice.

NTP’s: 1 / 10 was Graeme Lynn, 6 / 15 was Adrian Smith and 8 / 17 again went to Adrian Smith, who by all accounts can really hit a golf ball. Ladies 2nd shot 1 / 10 went to Ann Lockyer.

The ball rundown went 9 players on 36 points or better, indicating a day of very good scores all round.

Next week the Iluka Golf Club will host the Mexican’s from south of the border, which will no doubt be another happy event and renew old friendships.

Bob Wissink (filling in for Macca).
