A maximum field of 144 entered
the event with 13 players withdrawing mostly because of ill health. We
wish those players a speedy and full recovery.
Congratulations to all the
trophy winners and commiserations to those who did not finish in the winning
circle. It is a fact of life that there are winners and non winners in every
event. With one trophy per player allowed, 31 players picked up trophies
apart from ball competitions and N.T.P. trophies.
I would like to take this
opportunity of thanking one of my Tournament Committee Members, Kim
Stockbridge, who was responsible for collating all scores for the 54 hole
event. His incredible effort allowed me to publish scores each day as
well as the attachments, and commence presentations in record time.
As this event is currently
scheduled on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday prior to Good Friday, the
provisional dates for the 2018 are:
Monday 26th March
Tuesday, 27th March
Wednesday, 28th March
The venues have not been
determined at this stage, but as Western Sydney have the hosting rights for
2018, courses to be used will again be in this area.
Finally a little bit of trivia;
starting handicap 13.5
strokes for the field at each event:-
Thanks to each and every one of
you for your support and cooperation throughout the tournament.
Hopefully you will be able to
grace us with your presence in 2018.
