During the week the Snowy Mountains Retravision Short Course Championships were played and with plenty of prizes and nearest the pins all over the course the day was a huge success. Eighty seven keen golfers played on the day and so the competition was tight.
So what happened last week on the course!
On Saturday Mark Rainsford continued his recent good form to take out the short course event with a fine 50 off the stick. Pete's Golf A grade winner was Terry Johnston with 52 with Camping World runner up Andrew Jeffery with 53. B grade Pete's Golf winner was Jeff Burgess with 51 nett from second prize Camping World's Wayne Ryan with 53. For the Pete's Golf C grade prize Bill Keefe won the day (52) from Camping World's Alan Kelly with 53. In the ladies, Dorothy Bilbow (55 nett) won the Mitre 10 prize from Marion Burke with 57 nett. The Mainstreet Junior winner was Jake Crawford with 65 nett from Hunter Caldwell coming runner up to snag the Pro Shop prize. Non-handicap winner for the Perisher prize was Marcus Caldwell with 65 nett.
