On Sunday the weather was mainly drizzle and consequently there was no Stableford Medley comp. There was a group of players from the Parkes Services Social Golf club, who played the course early and enjoyed the fun.
On Sunday the Pennants teams were in contest at Parkes. This was a mixed results day for the Forbes teams. The Div 1 team had a 3/2 win against Cowra. That assures the Div 1 a place in the semi-finals.
The Div 2 team had a bad run, losing 4/1 to Duntryleague, while the Div 3 team also had a loss – 4/1 to Cowra.
The Div 4 team continued their strong performance, winning 3/2 against Cowra.
This also puts the team into the semi-finals.
On Saturday, 3rd March the Parkes Club will be holding their competition at Forbes, as there course is closed for the day. Their comp will run separately to our Monthly Medal.
However, this is a good chance to contest the Twin Towns Championship. The best scores from each comp will be collated to determine this.
