Victories by Tim Baker and Glynis Conroy were some of the highlights of a day of fun filled golf last Saturday.
Tim won the Denis Howard-sponsored 18 hole Stableford for men, while Glynis not only won the Ladies 18 Hole Club-sponsored Stableford, but was also victorious in the second round of the Handiskins qualification.
In the men’s premier event Tim not only surprised himself, but he dented the reputations of his fellow playing partners Peter Dixon, Robert Hey and Mark Kelly when he fired a brilliant 38 points to win the prestigious Cooke Cup. He was just one point clear of runner-up Anthony Riach.
Ball winners from the competition went to 37 Laurie Wakefield, 36 Justin Sutton, Pe- ter Boschman, Tim Burke and Peter Bristol, 35 Rod Luyt, Ron Hetherington, Mark Kelly, Brian Hogan Snr and Col Barker.In the ladies competition Glynis Conroy and Sue Holman shared the limelight as Conroy relied on Holman to gain victory after recording 39 points.
Conroy was also one of a good contingent of ladies who contested the second qualifying round of the Handiskins Championship.
The other highlight from the round was the performance of Sue Holman in the nearest the pin awards as she not only took out the Parkes Services Club-sponsored 11th hole for consecutive weeks, but she managed to add the Railway Hotel 15th hole to her collection.
Other nearest the pin victories saw Cathy Kelly take out the Lyn Rogan-sponsored 1st hole, Lorraine Maxwell the Parkes Pharmacy 4th hole and Glynis Conroy the Telescope Tyres & Batteries 6th hole.
