Nineteen players took to the Streaky Bay course on Sunday for the Bay Physiotherapy stableford competition.

The conditions were excellent despite being slightly on the warm side, but left few excuses for those seeking them.

The course was in great condition, with the new eighth/17th hole green opened up for play for the first time, which means players now have four greens to putt on throughout their round.

Graham Dwyer won division one with 37 points after a fine round, ahead of Chris Roberts on 34 after he could not string a whole round together.

In division two the honours went to Ty Redden on 45 points - a popular winner who finally put a complete round together, and in who much interest now rests in how his handicap will fare given he is the handicapper, but a division one spot awaits.

Dave Mayhew was the runner-up on 34 points and he is starting to see his game develop.

The novelty winners saw Mark Roberts take the division one long drive, with Jack Cash getting the job done in division two.

However, nobody was able to hit the green for the nearest the pin, despite all players playing this hole twice.

Chris Roberts was happy to win the skins hole - the 12th - with an uncharacteristic birdie giving him two-shot for four points, especially given the pond's magnetism to his tee shots.

There will be a break from the course over Easter, but competition will resume the following Sunday with the Streaky Bay Hotel day.

All players are welcome to come along.
