The Saturday Men’s golf competition was the February Monthly Medal, a Stroke event sponsored by Terry Bros Carpets, and which produced many low scores in picture-perfect conditions.
The A-Grade Medal was won by John Zannes who started slowly then was on fire from the 8th hole onwards to par the back-9 and finish on 67 nett. Runner-up was Steve Betland who shot under-par for both halves to record a scratch 68, but with his handicap finished on 70 nett.
B-Grade Medal went to Tom Toohey (65)with the best score of the day. He admitted to being nervous playing alongside Head Pro Adam. Runner-up was Peter Barnes on 69 nett.
In C-Grade, Frank Hanns (67 nett) beat runner-up Brian Clarke (68 nett) from the same group.
The ball sweep went to 75 nett, on count back – check in the Pro Shop to see if you earned one. The NTP’s went to: 9th – John Zannes, 18th – Shane Sallaway. The 3rd Hole Super Pin went to Steve Betland, with an outstanding shot to 30cms, just short of a hole-in-one.
There was no Stableford Medley played on Sunday, due to the Men’s Pennants being played. There was some outstanding golf on display with players from Bathurst, Dubbo, Parkes and Wellington participating.
This proved to be a successful day for Forbes with 80 players enjoying great conditions and a wholesome BBQ lunch to finish, with the only Forbes team to compete, the Division 4 team, scoring a 3-2 win over Dubbo.
The Summer Sixes comp once again threw up some unexpected results, although team scores were not as low as for previous weeks.
