THERE were some familiar names among the winners at Bay View Golf Club’s latest members’ stroke-play competition, played over 18 holes – against the revised par score of 62.

The best gross score was achieved by Chris Mottershead, with 67. Once handicaps were taken into account, he again emerged on top, with a net 53.

In second place was Charles Herrod, net 56, while John Rogers took third, net 59. A parallel strokeplay competition over just nine holes, was won by Jim Hennessey, net 25-and-a-half. Russ Parsons, net 26, finished second.

The prize for a tee shot “nearest the pin” on the 107-yard fourth went to Norman Cheasley.

The next Bay View members’ competition will be Wednesday June 15 – when there’ll also be a barbecue.
