AMY Squires, 11 years old, playing in her first year as a Pennants player, had her first win 3:2 in Sunday’s Weekend Pennants event. Playing in the Nemo’s team her contribution helped secure a 2:2 draw with Charlestown. Dad Paul, was on hand as Caddie, supporting Amy to her win. Congratulations Amy from the Members of the Golf Club. Watch out for this talented Lady as she pursues further success in her chosen sport.

Highlights of the week:

Wednesday. Mens Comp. Congratulations Bruce Thomas, hitting the perfect shot for a hole-in-one on the Par 3, 132 metre, 5th hole.

Thursday. The final event in the Twilight Series was the X-Country event. Imagine you’re on the 9th tee and looking to hole-out on the 7th green. Is it better to go over the top of, or under, the trees between you and the 8th fairway and then the trees protecting the 7th green. The more adventurous would try to ‘bend it like Beckham’ around the trees. A fun event, for the not-so-serious golfer.

Friday. Mixed comp. Congratulations Warren Andrews, collecting an Eagle on the 495 metre, Par 5, 3rd hole.
