THE BERRI HOTEL OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP 2018
Last weekend the Berri Golf Club hosted the Berri Open with the Berri Hotel as major sponsors. It was played on Saturday with the weather turning very windy and at some times raining and then turned very cold so a day of all seasons with the scores showing the effects of the weather with only a hand full of top players coping with the elements with Ian McHugh 78, Greg Shields (playing off 2hcp) 76, Chris Nielson 76(off 11hcp) and Defending Champion Andrew Hume 78 playing off scratch. Shaun Tate (2hcp) 80. Greg Shields scoring an eagle on the 2nd hole par 5
Sunday saw a very different day weather wise with very little wind and mild conditions and pin positions in some very tight positions with all players tested. The top players started to chase Andrew Hume for the title with Andrew shooting a steady 75 with Greg Shields 77, Shaun Tate 76. So the open was set with Andrew Hume finishing with a total of 153 with Greg Shields finishing 155, Shaun Tate 158, Ian McHugh 161, Robert Walters 169, Rob Day 169 and Ryan Dale 171.
