RESULTS for 12th OCTOBER 2016

Event: Stableford – Red Course
Sponsor: Cooroy Vets

Wednesday saw us play off the red tees for the first time this year with some interesting results.

A total of 130 Stableford points were scored on the 18th (389m par 4) hole for an average of 1.585 Stableford points, making this the most difficult hole on the day.  Only 3 players scored a 4.

A total of 188 Stableford point were scored on the 12th (108m par 3) hole for an average on 2.292 Stableford points, making this the easiest hole on the day.  46 players scored a 3 or less.

Hole numbers 9 and 16 rated evenly with a total of 135 Stableford points on each.

The most surprising statistic is that coming in at the 4th hardest hole played for the day was in fact our easiest rated hole in the 1st.  There was only a total of 137 Stableford points scored on this hole at an average of 1.67.  Only 23 players scored a 4 or better.
