Visitors Take the Honours at Tea Tree Gully
by Golf Australia
Its not often that Tea Tree Gully Seniors don’t take the honours in SA Senior golf but that was the case on Monday March 21, when “visitors” won 7 of the 8 sections of the Tea Tree Gully Masters. Whilst the field of 53 players for the Tea Tree Gully Masters was a little smaller than in previous seasons – maybe the petrol costs kept some away ? – the quality was very much there, particularly in the Men’s Seniors with 5 of South Australia’s top low handicap seniors doing battle. (Bruce Lindner was away with the representative Golf Australia side playing the ADF). A warm day with little wind and a course who’s excellent condition gave no indication of the high number of rounds being played every day at this very successful Adelaide north-eastern foot hills course. Senior Women Thaxted Park’s Lyn Hood took the honours for both the Stroke and Nett competitions (81/68). Lyn was well clear from Mi Park (North Adelaide) and Anne Arnfield (Royal Adelaide) in the Gross but Hannah Tayler (72) was closer in the Nett with Pam Withers (blackwood) next. Super Senior Women Angela Masters (Blackwood) (88) continued her domination of the Women’s Super Senior section, winning all the 4 rounds to-date. Clubmate, Rosemary Underwood (91) came second and local Libby Emery was a stroke further back. Julia Tannebring was the sole local winner in the Nett with a 74. Rosemary Underwood (75) scored another second placing with Angela Masters, third.
Senior Men The Vines of Reynella pair of Paul Gregory and Mark Potter, local “gun” Norm Cordina and Andy Edwards (Mt Osmond) all led or shared the lead at some time during their rounds. Gregory (70) prevailed over Potter (72), for his second victory in 2022, with Cordina (73) and Andy Edwards (74) close behind – late bogeys hurting both players. Potter’s Nett 68 won him the Men’s Senior Nett by a stroke from Nigel Turner (Links Lady Bay) followed by Gregory and Edwards. Super Seniors Men Lindsay Elliott (Blackwood) (74) edged out local champion, Mike Richards by a solitary stroke – Mike ruing a run of bogeys to finish; Jim Richards, of course, was also in the results – at this early stage it looks like these three will be the contenders for the Super Senior Order of Merit. Lindsay’s 69 Nett was also good enough to hold of Mike Richards with another local, Craig Morrison taking third. The Tea Tree Gully Masters is sponsored by Rusticana Wines from Langhorne Creek and company principal, Brian Meakins did the honours with prizes of his excellent products which are exactly what we senior golfers look for !
