DESPITE having to cancel the mixed event on Saturday, the annual tournament was a great success.
Fortunately the weather wasn’t as bad as predicted – in fact apart from being bitterly cold on the Friday, all three days were perfect golfing days.
The Pioneer Park 4BBB Par event on Friday saw a modest field take to the fairways and the scores were pretty good considering how long the course has been playing in recent times.
Two pairs managed plus seven on the day, which meant a count back for the Pioneer Park Shield.
A very excited ladies pairing of Anne Burns and Michelle Thomson emerged as winners over fellow Avenel golfers – David Grecian and Heath Wyllie.
As the Pioneer Park event is run in conjunction with the men’s and ladies events, Anne and Michelle were also the ladies’ winners, while David and Heath were the men’s winners.
