A working bee on Friday, junior golf and barbecue on Sunday afternoon, A reserve pennant underway and a monthly medal on Saturday with barbecue (thanks Campbell and helpers) members have been very busy. With the short course championships on next Saturday the golf schedule for members is gaining pace.
So what happened last week on the course.
On Saturday February 9, 47 players hit off in a single stroke medley for the February monthly medal. In A grade Steve Young won the day with a 69 nett from Mark Rainsford with 70 nett on a countback from Norm Marshall. B grade saw Joshua Miller score 70 nett and edged out Frank McKnight with 73 nett. C grade was won by board member Jim Darley with 71 nett on a countback from Sandy Litchfield. Ball winners went down to 74 nett. Nearest the pin on the 9th was won by Terry Johnston. Alex Childs won the 17th with a great shot. Longest drives went to Mark Van Ommen in A grade, Geno Cerro (B grade) and James Darley in C grade.
Sunday saw a lovely day with 19 members playing an individual stableford medley. The winner was Norm Marshall with 36 points from Trevor Bailey with 35 points. Ball winners went down to 29 points with nearest the pin on the 9th going to Dave Paterson. The 17th was taken out by Jeff Burgess.
On Wednesday February 6, 32 players competed in 3 grades for the top prizes with A grade being won by Bart Joseph with 38 points (round of the day). B grade was taken out by Michael Boyce with 37 points and C grade was won by Doug Snowden also with 37 points. Ball winners went down to 31 points. Nearest the pin on both the 9th and the 17th were won by Denis Minehan with super shots on both holes.
Next Saturday sees the Snowy Mountains Short Course Championships. Bookings on the one golf site will be essential. On Sunday we have a single medley stableford as well as Wednesday to be played. Of course there is the daylight saving competition on every Wednesday afternoon. You can hit off up until around 5.30pm with dinner provided it's a great way to get over hump day. Junior golf is on this Sunday afternoon. Members are asked to lend a hand if they can, to encourage our young golfers.
