Trevors Carpets Invitation Fours


The much-delayed second Trevors Carpets Men’s Fours was held at Sorrento on Saturday 8th May 2021. This event was postponed from last year due the Coronavirus. A full field of 38 teams of fours was registered, despite a clash with the State Mixed Pairs Championship, assembling on a bright and sunny day. Players from as far afield as Dunsborough, and across the metropolitan area took part. Midweek heavy rain made the greens a little slow, but the removal of the need to wear COVID masks from midnight that day enhanced the enjoyment of the day enormously.

This event consisted of two matches of 13 ends of fours, with two matches of 3-bowl spilt pairs over lunch. With over $8,000 in prize money to be distributed on the day, fierce competition was expected, and in the end only five teams achieved the maximum four possible wins. Therefore the first-to-fifth placings were decided between these five teams. A full list of prize-winners is set out below.

First Overall: Don Leeson (Cambridge), David Opie (Cambridge), Sam Scott (Doubleview) and Chris Lander (Sorrento) [+37 shots]

Second Overall: Jerome Clayton, Leo Mola, Jeff Post and Mark Douthie (North Beach) [+34 shots]

Congratulations to all winners. A special mention to Chris Lander who maintained his recent run of form, continuing on from his recent success as State Men’s Over 60’s singles champion by also being a part of the winning team for event. Chris was very gracious and thankful to the sponsors, volunteers and organisers when accepting his team’s prize.

Thanks must go to Ray Green from Trevors Carpets who was unfortunately unable to attend due to ill-health, but was represented by his wife Maureen. Thanks also to Pauline Marsden, John Godfrey, and especially to Jan Cook and her small army of volunteers who helped feed the men on the day. Also thanks to Lee Leach, Dan Greig, Neville Odell, Evan Cosh and to Anne and Trevor Orton who managed the set-up and clean-up of the club and greens and for maintaining the scoring records for the day. Thanks also to the greens staff who prepared the greens and surrounds for play.
