Keen golfers brave wet conditions

A week of rain and overcast conditions saw the Cooma Golf Club green up and fairways begin to grow.

Due to the wet conditions there was no golf on Wednesday however 45 golfers played on Saturday and 18 on Sunday. Our final pennant match for the year was also played on Sunday.

Saturday's single medley stableford was in 3 grades. The A grade trophy was taken out by in form, John Gargett with 39 points from Nick Massari with 38 points.

B grade was won by Daniel Wilkins with 38 points from Prawit Parkotasung also with 38 points and in C grade Mark Kelly had 31 points to come in first from Bill Dyball with 30 points.

Ball winners went to Mark Rainsford with 34 points. Nearest the pin prizes were taken out by Nick Massari on the 9th and Mark Rainsford on the 17th. Steven Wheatley won the 2nd shot on the 18th nearest the pin.

On Sunday Gary Batten really turned in a great round to finish with 37 points and take out first place in wet, slow conditions. Second place went to Greg Abraham with ball winners going down to 30 points. Brian Searl hit a lovely close shot on the 9th and Garry Atkinson won nearest the pin on the 17th.

Next week sees single stablefords the order of the day for Wednesday and Sunday with Saturdays competition to be announced soon.

A reminder that the last junior golf competition will be on Sunday (2pm) with a visiting professional giving each junior golfer lessons before the round and a BBQ for juniors, mums and dads after the round.
