Tumultuous week as lightning hits Margaret River Golf Club

Tumultuous week as lightning hits Margaret River Golf Club

It has been a strange week at the Margaret River Golf Club, with a planned closure for coring works coinciding with a huge bolt of lightning that hit the club last Monday.

The incident caused a great deal of damage to the club's infrastructure.

Nevertheless, we have forged on and we have seen some great results from our players.

Thursday Men's Scroungers 18-hole Stableford event competitors were playing for the Sand Greens Cup.

The event is played on the first Thursday after coring in both March and November.

This year's victor was Phil Potter (40,39) over Sean Howard (39,39) and Andre Botha (35,42).

Thursday's play was won by Mike Beale with a fantastic 45 points over Roy Warren who achieved 42 c/b points.

Andre Botha was third with 42 points.
