Aussie flags the Bonville winners

BONVILLE Golf Resort celebrated Australia Day in style.

The club ran an Australia Day ‘Flag’ event which is a variation of a single stroke where each player is given a flag with their name on it before they tee off.

The player then places their flag where they have hit their last shot in relation to their handicap.

So, if a player has a handicap of six and the par is 72, they place their flag where their 78th shot finishes.

The added bonus is that if the player finishes the 18th hole with shots in hand, they continue on back down the first hole and so forth, until their shots have finished.

On this day all players were given an Australian national flag to place in the ground and help celebrate the birthday of the nation.

Naturally, the day had to have a winner.

Overall flag champion was Jeff Robinson (8) who actually completed 20 holes on the day with his flag in the cup on the second extra hole.

The stroke runner-up was Eddie Cox (18) with 65, followed by Bob Smith (17) with 67.

Tied for third were Ian Llewellyn (5) and Barry Smith (18), each with 69 on countback.

Nearest the Pin winners were: spare hole Craig Lang, fifth hole Brian Rice, eighth hole Wayne Scott, 11th hole Ray Pensch and 17th hole Rodger Pryce.

Ball winners were: Eddie Cox, Jeff Robinson, Bob Smith, Ian Llewellyn, Barry Smith, Steve Walsh, Wayne Scott, Kevin Edmonds, Terry Smith, Greg Nelson, Mark Johnston and Don Kennedy with 71.
