The Queensland AGHS Chapter held its third hickory event for 2015 at Royal Queensland Golf Club on Friday 27th March. On a beautiful Brisbane afternoon a field of ten players competed in a stableford competition over Royal Queensland’s front nine.
John Trubicyn was the outright winner with 20 stableford points off a daily handicap of 9. Runner-up was recent hickory convert Neville Sandford with 18 points off a daily handicap of 11. In third position (on countback) was Chris Cooper, scoring 18 points off a daily handicap of 3.
The high scores from recent events was discussed over post-round drinks and it was unanimously agreed that the standard of hickory play in Queensland has improved markedly over the few short years of the group’s existence. This was highlighted by off-the-stick scores of 38 and 39, respectively, by Chris Cooper and John Trubicyn, against a par of 36.
