Gross winner was Jayden Taylor with 69. B Grade nett and gross winner was John Carty with 85/65 over nett R/U Toby Cuthel on 67. C Grade champion, and winner of the August Monthly Mug was Pat Gray with a nett score of 63! Bob Stockton had a good day, nett R/U and gross winner with 90/67. Best putter of the day, benefitting from not quite reaching the greens, was Jenko with 26. NTPs went to Merv Brownlee, Ross Williams, Sue Wilson-Brown, Rowan Hickson and Kiwi. You had to score 67 to get a ball - the winners included Dennis Lyon, Tony Brown and Col Hoskins. Next week’s event is the first round of the Men’s Club Championships sponsored kindly by HQB and should be a cracker if this week’s scores are anything to go by.

Please note the following changes to Local Rules - After the working bee last month there is no longer any relief from greenkeeper’s debris around the trees.
