Royal Perth will again host the 36- hole Royal Perth Seniors and there is also the 54-hole WA Senior Amateur Championship. The calendar also includes the WA Senior Handicap Championships at Mosman Park. The WA Senior Order of Merit table will be used to select the four-man team to represent Western Australia in the Interstate Teams event at the 2016 Australian Senior Amateur Championship. Currently Paul Chappell has a good lead at the top with the following three places being closely grouped. The final four could easily change with three more events to be played before the representative team is announced.

Chappell leads Senior OOM Wa QlD Toyne on top at Pacific Harbour The Pacific Harbour PresCare QSOOM event attracted a field of 30 players. One of Australia’s best senior golfers, Steve Toyne (Nudgee), was the only golfer to break 80 on the demanding course when he finished with a very good score of 75. Men Winner Men’s Scratch: Steve Toyne 75 Runner-Up Men’s Scratch: Lindsay Brown 80 Winner Men’s Nett: David Hannah 36 points Ladies Winner Ladies Scratch: June Wills 95 Winner Ladies Nett: Amanda Murray 29 points More: www.golfqueensland.org.au NSW Pymble Seniors In 2015 the well-known senior Richard Greville (Magenta Shores) finished as the runner-up in the Pymble Seniors to local member Gary Mangelsdorf. This year, however, the positions were reversed with Greville recording a good round of 74 to defeat Mangelsdorf by two strokes. Third place went to Asquith senior Dave Morgan with the big hitting scratch marker defeating Ken Brewer, Geoff Cranfield and Ron Hall on a countback after all had finished on scores of 77. Gungahlin Lakes member Abdul Rizvi made the trip from Canberra and went home with the nett prize after his round of net 71 from a handicap of 8. Antill Park’s Ross Nattrass was the runner-up one stroke away. The Over 65 scratch went to Port Kembla’s Ron Hall and the nett to Cessnock’s James Hogg. The field of 60 seniors were pleasantly surprised with the excellent presentation of the Pymble course following some recent heavy rain. The greens were a little slower than normal but the fairways were beautiful and all players enjoyed another day on the picturesque Pymble course. Oatlands Seniors Long Reef senior Geoff Cranfield continued his good recent form with a clear-cut win in the 2016 Oatlands Senior Cup. Cranfield had an excellent round of even- par 70 on the tight Oatlands course to record a three stroke win over Bardwell Valley senior Lester Peterson. Cranfield had started his round with consecutive bogies but then settled down to play immaculate golf for his even par score. Peterson’s only real blemish was a double bogey on the ninth hole. Magenta Shores senior Richard Greville made the trip down from the central coast worthwhile, picking up the third place prize on a countback from the consistent Ken Brewer (Concord) after both finished with rounds of 74. The overall handicap prize went to Roy Shuttleworth from North Ryde with a net score of 69 from his 8 handicap. He defeated local Oatlands member Bill Mitchell by two strokes. Denis Dale was the leading Over 65 golfer with a score of 77 while Alan Moulds was a popular winner of the Over 65 net with a score of 73 from his 9 handicap. As always the Oatlands course was presented in excellent condition, especially considering the very heavy rain in the preceding week.
