The Carnarvon course was presented in very good condition with a challenging setup that had some well-placed pins and most tees on their “strong blue” position. The scores reflected the challenge this with only one player from a field of 55 senior golfers managing to better his handicap on the day. Stanford recorded a round of four over par 76 on the tough Carnarvon course and in doing so made it seven NSW Senior Order of Merit titles this year. He now sits clearly on top of the NSW Senior Order of Merit Rankings. The second best score of the day went to Twin Creeks senior Denis Dale who recorded a round of 77, failing by one stroke to equal Stanford. Bayview’s Dale Tapper continued with his consistent golf and finished in third place with his round of 78 and in doing so consolidated his third place position on the NSW rankings. Robert Lewis (Windsor) had the day’s best handicap score with an excellent net score of 70 from his 10 handicap. Lewis was the only senior to play to or better than his handicap. The runner up in the handicap section was local member John Honeybrook with a net score of 73. Newcastle Seniors: A top quality field enjoyed a beautiful day for the second playing of the Newcastle Senior Amateur, generously sponsored by local company The Cove Village who provide exclusive lifestyle living for the over 55’s. The Newcastle course is one of Australia’s very best and regularly appears close to the top in Best Australian Golf Course lists. For the 2014 Senior Amateur the course was in excellent condition and a setup that showcased the course and certainly presented a real challenge to the field of 90 of NSW’s best seniors. 2014 NSW Senior Order of Merit Player Club Events Best 14 1 Greg Stanford Mona Vale 20 1650 2 Denis Dale Twin Creeks 20 1575 3 Dale Tapper Bayview 16 1509 4 Dave Limbach Penrith 12 1259 5 Paul Day Kooindah Waters 14 1217 course.
