Wednesday 10th October 2018.
Wednesday 10th October was the annual Captain's team versus President's team, played as a Single Stableford.  

Captain Pat Munro took great delight in accepting the win 337 to 308 this year.  

The ladies were happy to find the greens smoother than last week and appreciated the mowing done in the professional style of stripes (didn't make the putts fall for everyone though).

If You thought the rugby league State of Origin produced a close result, you should have taken a look at the State of Origin event at the Iluka Golf Club on Saturday.

Only 0.7 of a shot separated the team averages – the Queensland Cane Toads coming out on top of the NSW Cockroaches 33.7 to 33.0.

In the individual event Patricia Freeman led home the ladies with 34 points from runner up Colleen Hartcher on 32 whose countback put her ahead of Val George.

A similar situation eventuated in the men’s division when Neil Grady accumulated 41 points to head Paul Mitchell on 40   with Jim Lowe coming off second best on a countback, also on 40.

In the non-handicap division it was Robert Connolly who came out on top with 38 points.

The Bradmans trophy for the Queenslanders went to Jim Wride and for the Cockroaches to Jon McEwen who made a welcome return to the course.

The men’s nearest the pins were won by Dwain Sullivan on 6/15 and Jim Pritchard on 8/17 with no players hitting the green on 1/10.

It would be best not to ask Jim Pritchard how he won his trophy on 8/17 – it is a story longer and more exciting than War and Peace.

Val George added to her spoils by winning two NTPs on 1/10 and 6/15 with Colleen Hartcher winning on 8/17.

Balls were won by Jim Kentwell 39, Garry Freeman 39, Graeme Lockyer 38, Bob Oddy 37, Dwain Sullivan 37, Sam McDonald 37, Stephen Bond 37, Brian Kembrey 36, Peter McCurtayne 35, Peter Gleeson 34, Maurie Watt 34 and Brian Kay 34.

Today the Ladies are playing their annual Captain’s V President’s teams event.

On Saturday the men will be playing the October Monthly Medal stroke event for the trophies donated by Iluka Quality Meats, Col Kempshall and the Anchorage Holiday Park.

The Casino mixed visit which was set down for Sunday has been put back to Sunday 4 November at the request of Casino.

We were already playing a mixed 4BBB Stableford on that day.

The game for the 17th October will be Ladies Single Stableford sponsored by Elaine Gallen.

The fact that the greens had been cored, reno-thinned, fertilised and top dressed didn’t deter Iluka golfers and visitors from taking to the course on Saturday.

The morning players got the best of the weather with players with later tee times copped a wet behind and quite a few withdrew to the clubhouse.

Scores were generally good, considering the conditions and you needed 40plus to win one of the Gordon Farrell and Geoff Cowen trophies.

In Division 1 Sam McDonald was King Pin with 41 points from Mt Tamborine visitor Grahame Kent a single point away on 40.

In Division 2 Barry George streeted the field with his 43 points, four points clear of Woodburn Evans Head visitor Phillip Mitchell on 39.

Peter McCurtayne did his usual trick and won two nearest the pins on 1/10 and 6/15, Phillip Mitchell won 8/17 and Sandi Mayoh was best of the ladies with her second shot on 1/10.

Ball winners were John Williams with 38 points, Graeme Phelps (Maclean) 38, Jack Palaszczuk 38, Brian Kay 37, Paul Munn 37, Ligourie Kent (Mt Tamborine) 37, Paul Maclean 37, Neil Grady 36, Bob Oddy 36 and Peter McCurtayne 35.
The Bradmans was won by Graeme Lynn on a countback.
