The sun was shining on a rapidly drying out Deep Creek Golf Club on Saturday with members hitting the course and junior clinics taking place making for a great atmosphere at the club.

Congratulations to teaching pro Mark Shaw on his efforts on bringing a fantastic junior program to the Deep Creek Golf Club.

Mark is doing a wonderful job with the youngsters, some of which were at the course on Saturday, and has some great ideas that are about to take off in the New Year.

The club has secured funding to run a unique golfing program aimed at girls -aged 10 to 16 years old – which will be great for both the female participants and the club.

Well done Mark from all members and the friendly community at Deep Creek!


Getting some sun on the back was certainly a great feeling for the strong field that teed off for Saturday’s stableford event.

Afternoon golfer Brian Webster (17) played a magnificent round of golf, scoring a whopping 44 points to take out the A Grade prize for the day. Webster began his round in style, slotting one to close range on the par-three second hole, and continued his masterclass from there.

Scott Irwin (17) would have been confident of claiming first prize when he signed for a fantastic score of 42 points…but he fell two short in a red-hot A Grade competition.

Brian and Scott – we hope you enjoy playing off a drastically reduced handicap the next time you pick your sticks up out of the boot!

Neil Atchison (20) also had a wonderful day on the course; scoring 40 points to secure a six-shot win over the sweet-swinging Duncan Campbell (28) in B Grade.

Balls down the line went to James Dimtsas, Dean Jones and Noel Bonne on 36 points, Murray O’Dwyer and Brian Clydesdale on 35, with David Nagel, Jimmy Pari, Steven Smith and Mark Hatton all signing off on two-over par 34’s.

Nearest the pins went to James Dimtsas (0.86m) on the second hole and Dean Jones (3.55m) on the 16th.

And well done to Matt Lloyd who won 11 balls after taking just two blows to win the Eagles’ Nest on the eighth.


Dean Jones (13) was the star of Wednesday’s stableford competition, scoring 38 points to take the daily prize – and also winning the Supercomp on the back nine.

Down the line prizes went to Gordon Edwards 38, Stephen Northcott 35, and Levi Sua, Neville Taylor and James Dimtsas on 34 points.

This Saturday’s competition will be stableford.
