Proserpine Veteran’s Golf

Proserpine Veteran Golfers cancelled their trip to Home Hill this week after last minute heavy rainfall left the course unplayable – but not to be deterred, 25 players entered a Proserpine Comp.  

The early players did well but the tail enders copped a drowning as the weather crept down the coast from the north.

Captain Ken Granger won for the men with 70 on a countback from Steve Mitchell, with Peter Fox third with 71.

Helen Deighton took out the ladies with 72, Heather Luvis, 75, and Elspeth Scotford, 78. Pin shots went to Colin and Jenny Hounsell on two, Jenny again on nine, Peter Fox on 13 and Heather Luvis on 16.

Next Tuesday is ANZAC Day and thus no Veteran’s Competition. But there will be PGC two ball Ambrose, shotgun start at 11.00am.
