  • Dickie’s top fourball form

    Jeff ‘Dickie’ Grant might be in hot
    demand as a fourball partner following his
    winning efforts over recent weeks.
    After his success with Bob Landy to take
    out the recent Winter Classic, he continued
    the form on Saturday, teaming up with
    George Willis to win the fourball best ball
    They had 49 points, two clear of Geoff
    Corboy and Kevin Reeves, with a further
    shot to third placegetters Laurie Hughes and
    Rob Armytage.
    On Sunday the mixed foursomes was
    played, with Graeme Willoughby and Pauline
    Davis taking the handicap trophy with
    70.5, on countback from Barry and Jayne
    Barlow. Scratch went to Brian Bourke and
    Kerran Leetham with 79.
    Nearly 50 players braved a cold Wednesday
    for the stableford event. Gary Davies
    had 38 to defeat in-form Barry Barlow by a
    shot in A Grade, while Wayne Jamieson
    scored 39 to win B grade, from James Rhook
    on 37.
    Last Thursday the ladies played their
    foursomes championship, with 18 and 27
    hole events. Both the 27 and 18 hole
    handicap winners were Ali Ferguson and
    Gayle Beckton with 74 nett, and 27 hole
    scratch winners were Kerran Leetham and
    Vicki Brunker with 135.

  • Bob, Dickie clear Classic winners

    Bob Landy and Jeff ‘Dickie’ Grant had a
    comfortable five shots win in the Winter
    Classic 36 holes men’s handicap event at the
    They set up the victory with an impressive
    51 points on Saturday, even avoiding a
    potential disqualification scare. They followed
    this with a steady 45 points on
    Sunday to finish well clear of runners-up
    Wayne Jamieson and Wayne Harris with 91.
    Ladies winners were Marg Radeski and
    Jane Armytage with 87 on countback from
    Wendy Pearce and Jill Jeffrey.
    In the scratch events, the men’s winners
    were Peter Joice and Chris Thomson with
    72, and in the ladies it was Jane Wall and
    Carol Letherby with 65.
    The classic was the centrepiece of another
    successful weekend and the club thanks
    sponsors Riverina Watermatic, Cleaner
    Carpets and Deniliquin Tile Centre for their
    On Wednesday the A grade winner was
    Wayne Hodgson with 42 points, from Peter
    Joice who had a one under par 71 to record
    41 stableford points. B grade winner was
    Rob Armytage with 43 from Tony Tonta on
    40. And despite what members saw on the
    results screen in the clubhouse, Rob Gray
    did not have a hole-in-one on the 18th
    (perhaps a reminder that you need to enter
    the stableford points rather than strokes
    into the computer).
    There is plenty of golf in coming days.
    Tomorrow is a single stableford and
    round one of the singles knock-out.
    On Sunday we have a visit from Cohuna
    Golf Club and a mixed fourball competition
    will be played. More local players are being
    sought, so if available put your name down
    in the pro shop. There will be a barbecue
    lunch from 11am before a shotgun start at
    Monday is the mixed vets, with 9am
    assembly for a 9.30am shotgun start.
    Also, don’t forget the nine holes winter
    competition. Details and entry is in the pro
    In the clubhouse the Joker’s Wild tonight
    is just shy of $5,000.
    As a special treat, over the winter months
    Peter Seely will be cooking gourmet pizzas
    on a Friday night, so why not get down to the
    club and support this great initiative.

  • Poka jnr claims club title

    Jim Poka jnr had a final round 76, which was enough to give him a comfortable six shot win in the Big River Real Estate Club Championships, after Saturday’s final round. Poka had a three round total of 221 to defeat runner-up, former champion Vince Kelly on 227, with a further five shot margin to Matt Thomas and Brian Bourke on 232. This was Poka’s fourth club championship.
    In B grade Tom Wettenhall fired an excellent final round of 81 to come from third place and take the championship from round two leader Neil Boswell, followed by Noel Nicholas, with Terry Howe rounding out the top four.
    C grade winner was Jake Dedman, adding to the D grade title he won last year. This was the closest finish of the day, with Dedman and Magnus Aitken tied on 272 on the final tee. Aitken took the runners-up prize from Graeme Rothwell and Alan Jenkin.
    D grade was a battle of the veterans, won by Ron ‘Moot’ Turner with a five round total of 291, five clear of Adam Wettenhall. Third place went to Brian Dudley, followed by a tie between Peter O’Brien and captain John Irwin.
    The club congratulates all the 2018 champions and extends special thanks to Big River Real Estate for its sponsorship.
    Last Thursday the ladies championships were finalised.
    A grade winner was Prue Lloyd with a three-round total of 254; in B grade Jen Joice was champion with a total of 290, and in C grade Kym Sandford took the title with a total of 295.
    On Saturday, in conjunction with the championships was a stroke event. A grade winner with net 68 was Tom Wettenhall from Troy Grant net 70, B grade went to Denise Hunter on net 71 ahead of Jim Poka snr 73, and C grade to John Irwin with net 72 by a shot from Peter O’Brien.
    On Wednesday Magnus Aitken, perhaps trying to make amends for his championship defeat, fired an amazing 50 stableford points for a huge 11 shot win over Tom Bult on 39.
    Captain John Irwin also doubled up after his win on Saturday with 43 points, two clear of Andrew Hall with 41.
    The Summer Sixers presentation was held on Sunday. This season there were 20 teams in two divisions, with a total of 120 players.
    Division One winners were Bee Gees (Dot Wharton, Ruth King, Meredith Sharp, Rae Lawrence, Jan Hobson and Barbara Daniels), defeating Motley Crew (Mick Sutton, Tim Nolan, Lindsay Holden, Simon Tilders, Todd Newman and Corey Liefting).

  • Poka powers to six shot buffer

    Jim Poka Jnr takes a commanding six shot lead into the final round of the Deniliquin Golf Club Big River Championships, which will be finalised tomorrow. He fired a sensational three under par 69 in round two last Saturday to surge ahead of
    round one leader Brian ‘Billy’ Bourke who is a shot clear of third placegetter Matt Thomas.
    In B grade Neil Boswell has a two shot lead from Terry Howe, with a further three shots to Tom Wettenhall.
    C grade is led by the reigning D grade champion Jake Dedman, two shots ahead of Magnus Aitken and with a six shot buffer to Graeme Rothwell.
    In D grade the experienced Ron ‘Moot’ Turner is four shots ahead of Adam Wettenhall, closely followed by Sam Willoughby.
    Other important events were also finalised on Saturday, as follows:
    Everitt trophy – Jimmy Poka jnr; Veterans – Graeme Willoughby; Juniors – Sam Willoughby; RAL putting – Matt Thomas.
    After tomorrow’s final round a barbecue dinner will be held at the club for $5 per plate. Everyone welcome.
    The club would like to thank the team at Big River Real Estate for their sponsorship of the championships, which are our major event of the year. Although the going was tough for players in extreme climatic conditions last Saturday, tomorrow should be played in ideal autumn weather and be conducive to some excellent golf.
    Not surprisingly, Jim Poka jnr won the A grade stroke event on Saturday with net 66, ahead of Graeme ‘Wrecker’ Willoughby with net 71.
    The leading two C grade championship contenders were to the fore in B grade, with Jake Dedman recording net 73 to defeat Magnus Aitken on net 75.
    In C grade Felicity McCalman had net 75 to defeat Sam Willoughby on countback.
    On Sunday the WRDGA mixed qualifying round was held in fourball best ball versus par format. Dean Irwin and Shandra Simpson had plus 8, to defeat Peter and Lyn O’Brien with plus 7. The four pairs of mixed knockout qualifiers, plus the Nisbet Mixed Knockout qualifiers, are in the results below.
    On Tuesday the ladies played the second round of their championships. A grade winner was Jen Choice with net 72, from Marg Radeski net 75, and in B grade Pam Larcombe defeated Kym Sandford on countback with net 74.
    Last Thursday Sarah Lugsdin, with the help of an ‘ace’ on the second, won A grade with net 70, two shots clear of Prue Lloyd. In B grade Kym Sandford was the winner with net 68, from Rita Barnes net 73.
    Wednesday’s A grade stableford winner was Norm Purtill with 41 points, two clear of Wayne Hodgson on 39. In B grade James Rhook had 42, ahead of Kevin Reeves on 41.
    The Joker’s Wild is already above $3,000 and the members draw will hit $900 tomorrow if not claimed tonight. Tickets for the meat raffle and Joker’s Wild are available this evening from 6pm, with draws starting at 7.30. Meals are available with bookings preferred.
    Golfers are also advised to note that next Wednesday, being Anzac Day, will be slightly different to the usual members’ event. As usual it will be stableford, but it will be a medley with men and women invited to play.
