Thursday 19th - a crisp and chilly morning for the Medley 18 hole Stableford - glorious golfing weather! 12 players vied for the prize and it was tight at the top, Ruth Hall winning with 37 points on a C/B from R/U Linda Hillman. NTPs were nabbed by Maggie Oliver, Roz Hemsley and Gillian Anderson. Shortly afterwards, 15 Seniors took to the fairways for a 12 hole Stableford comp.

Sunday 22nd - a compact field for this year’s Mixed Foursomes Championships with the teams fighting it out over 27 holes. Gross winners were the defending champions Nick Jenkins and Ruth Hall with 128 strokes over R/U team Jayden Taylor and Kerry Shearer with 133. Nett winners were Greg Hawke and Maggie Oliver with a fine 101.5 over R/U team Stan McCabe and Vilma Neill with 110.5. Thank you very much to the social players who let the teams through, much appreciated.
Captain’s Log - last week’s reported Monthly Medal result for B Grade was incorrect - many apologies to Bruce Mitchell who bested Maurie Tate to get B Grade R/U and the lowest gross, luckily no prizes had been given out. On Sunday 29th we are having a working bee to help maintain the course - volunteers are welcome, please come at 9am. In the meantime, if you see divots please fill them, and use your pitch mark repairers on the greens!
