Four more golfers to join Warwick's best

FOUR months remain for Warwick golfers to qualify for the Warwick Real Estate Medal of Medallists this year.

Principal Neil Carney and fellow Warwick Real Estate staff members Doug Rickert and Scott McLennan are among the golfers wanting a monthly win and qualification for the end of season Medal of Medallists.

Carney said numbers were up for the monthly medal.

"It is the premier competition for the club and the toughest," Carney said.

"The pins are harder and the tees further back. I prefer golf when it is harder.

"I won a monthly medal three years ago and am still aiming for my second Medal of Medallists qualification. The golfer who makes the least mistakes wins the net competition each month."

Warwick Golf Club handicapper Garry Adcock said extra players nominated for monthly medals compared to regular Saturday competitions.

"The monthly medal is a single stroke competition where you can test yourself; you can have a couple of terrible holes and still win in a stableford event but you can't with a single stroke," he said.

"We are deeply indebted to Warwick Real Estate for their medals each month for A and B-division winners and for providing gift vouchers to Warwick businesses for the winners."

There are four spots left on the board in A (handicaps to 16) and B (handicaps above 16) divisions this year as the best 12 will battle it out for the Medal of Medals."

Monthly medals so far this year have been won by some experienced golfers and young guns like Ben O'Dea.
