The 2020 SA Senior Order of Merit events continued at full pace at Mt Osmond on Monday, 2 March. A strong, blustery SE wind heralded the start of Autumn and played havoc with many players scores with the difficult par 5 18th seeing big numbers and DQs from the tight RHS out-of-bounds and the hard left to right cross breeze. Picturesque Mt Osmond’s hills and slopes can present a challenge for those not hitting the middle of their clubs – add a some breeze and a few aspirations were severely dashed!

However – there are always those who play well – Senior gross winner was a yet another new name from Tea Tree Gully in Craig Gordon with 72, followed by two of the early OOM contenders in Richard Payne and Steve Ross – both with 75’s.

Tea Tree Gully got the double with Phil Smith in the Super Seniors Gross (75) from Lindsay Elliott (79) and Geoff Ashby (80).

Local Fanis Katsarlias, coerced into playing, made it very worthwhile with an excellent 66 to win the Seniors Nett from two members of The Vines at Reynella in Russell Cooper and Rohan Haslam.

A very popular result in the Super Seniors Nett saw Blackwood GC stalwart and perennial optimist and golf enthusiast, John Gilleade prevail over all his peers – much to John’s delight I might add !

Mt Osmond members filled the places – Dennis Hales and David Perry.
