The annual Can-Assist 4-person Ambrose Charity Day was held on Saturday with a field of 76 players participating. Funds raised will contribute to the community work done by the Forbes Can-Assist Group.
There is a long list of winners, but the major winners were:
• Scratch – B Hodges, D Bayley, S Betland, J Rousell with a score of 61.
• Handicap – J Grierson, C Simmons, S Sykes, J Hitchen – 51 ¾.
• Bradman – B Drabsch, B Shields, C Bratton, E Coombs – 64 1/8.
• There were NTP’s on all par-3’s and other prizes.
Prizes were scattered across a wide array of players. Formal recognition will be made to the sponsors, but hearty thanks to them for their contribution. And big thanks go to Beryl Roberts for her work on the checking of the score cards and collating the results, to the Can-Assist committee for their catering work and to the greens staff.
Sunday’s Stableford Medley comp was won by Jill Cripps with 36 points, on count back from runner-up Richard Smith. There was no ball sweep. The NTP’s both went to Bess Shields.
Monday also had a Stableford Medley, this time won by Michael Mood with 34 points. There was no ball sweep. Again the same player snared both NTP’s, with Mike Woods the recipient.
A group of players travelled to Nelson Bays Golf Club for the Annual Water Wonderland 36-hole event, which this year was played in good weather. Over 120 players participated, representing clubs from the Central Coast and Sydney areas.
Digit McAuliffe was the only Forbes player to feature in the prizes, winning the Saturday A-Grade winner with 38 points. Of note was the win by Peter Tilden for the Saturday B-Grade with 41 points.
The Lachlan Valley Pennants and Championships, are on this Sunday at West Wyalong. This is the premier event for Lachlan Valley District Golf, with Pennants (teams of 6) and Individual Championships contested in the same event. Good luck to all our guys.
The Ladies golfers have been successful in obtaining a defibrillator machine for placement at the golf course. All players, both men and women, are invited and encouraged to attend the Golfie Hotel on Wednesday 26 June at approximately 2pm, where a demonstration and training on the use of the machine will be conducted.
Week four of the Winter 3’s competition threw up a surprising but welcome voucher winner. Somm managed a nett 24 to streak the field, and no doubt benefits from some ‘inside assistance’. The balls went to: Somm, A Watts, R Taylor, M Sutcliffe, S Kirkman and A Tucker.
Saturday 15 June is an 18-hole Stroke event, sponsored by Country Mile Motor Inn. Sunday 16 June is a Stableford Medley at home, while the LVDGA Pennants and Champs will be held at West Wyalong.
