The Second Inter Club Golf Day a Success!

The Inter Club Golf Day a Success!

We held our second successful inter club day on Sunday at Macquarie Links Golf Club. There were teams from St Michaels, Bonnie Doon, Monash, The Lakes, a composite men's team and a composite Ladies team. A good time was had by all notwithstanding some scores being lower than would have been hoped for 

The defending champions, St Michaels, with Captain Marty Knespal leading the charge, sent out their gun pairing of Shakenofsky and Friedlander against Gaitz and Channesman. Unfortunately the defending champions couldn't recover from their opponents fast start which included two four pointers in the first two holes. The Ladies team acquitted themselves well except for the most wayward drive of the day when their captain couldn't find the 18th tee and was told to turn back as she headed towards the freeway to the airport. The Lakes team, filled with young guns struggled against their more experienced opponents while Graham Shulman, leading the way couldn't carry Monash to victory on his own. Bonnie Doon showed the effects of having had to play on a 16 hole course at home for so long and faded down the stretch. In the end it was the composite team, aided by a couple of ring ins from the Lakes and Monash that brought home the bacon (or in this case, the pastrami on rye).
