Doug Rushton has four aces up his sleeve at Sunnydale

Men's Club wraps up summer session; fall/winter golf now underway

It’s a crazy game. Longtime Sunnydale member Doug Rushton, an avid golfer, has previously never had a hole-in-one. This year (so far) he has scored four aces on his home course.

On Sept. 27 under excellent conditions the Sunnydale men ended the summer session. Field low gross winner was Mitch Carr-Hilton scoring a 70 followed by pro Tom Drew with a 74, Damon Gaudet 75 and Dave Pye/Dan Woods sharing 76.

Low gross for the 11+ category was Wally Pettigrew 76, John Barnsdale 77, Ham Stewart 78 and Rick Dawson with a 83. Low net leaders were Jim McCaffery and Emil Zapotoczny sharing a score of 63. Trailing were Rick Bono 64, Earl Costello and Bruce Donegan with 66.

Skin winners were Silvio Alberti (2), Ed Podetz, John Barnsdale (2), Jim Buchanan, Wally Pettigrew, Mitch Carr-Hilton, Kyle Stairs and Dave Pye. KP winners were John Barnsdale, Silvio Alberti, Mitch Carr-Hilton, Doug Rushton, Kyle Stairs, Darrell Smith with a POG going to John Barnsdale. Long drives in three handicap categories were Kyle Stairs, Silvio Alberti and Ham Stewart. Long putt winners were Bo Bishop, Mitch Carr-Hilton and Gavin McLean. The mug of sludge went to Keith McNeillie.

A Men’s Club meeting (minutes are in the clubhouse) was held followed by a number of door prizes (everybody present won something) and a tasty meal prepared by our kitchen staff. All and all, a successful summer season with thanks to the committee and sponsors.

The fall/winter season kicked off Oct. 4 with 26 golfers. Dan Woods and Silvio Alberti are at the helm. Low gross winners were Kyle Stairs 70 and Tom Drew 73 and in the 11+ category Rick Dawson 82 and Leo Lambert 84. Low net winners were Chuck Milne 66, Bruce Donegan 67, Colin Hetman 68, Robb Herron 69, Jim McCaffery and Dave Pye 70, and Dave Stevens 71.

Skin winners were Silvio Alberti, Corey Nickerson, Kyle Stairs (2), Robin Ward, Dave Pye and Mitch Carr-Hilton. Robin also picked up the POG. KP winners were Bruce Donegan, Dave Fateaux, Leo Lambert, Kyle Stairs and Corey Nickerson.
