Saturday was an 18-hole Individual Stroke event, sponsored by Country Mile Motor Inn, with 60 players braving the cold conditions.
The A-division winner was Dan Bayley who fired a nett 65 score, helped by a 2-under back-9. Runner-up was Barry Shine with nett 69 who put together two similar halves. The B-division went to Anthony Alley with a nett 71 and on count back. He had some good shots, notably an eagle on the 4th and some not so good shots. Runner-up was Richard Smith, who played steadily throughout.
The ball sweep went to 75 nett on count back, going to: 65 – D Bayley; 69 – B Shine, T Cogswell; 70 – T Callaghan; 71 – A Alley, R Smith; 72 – R Webb, G Drane, J Betland, A Rees; 73 – S Grallelis, B Slack-Smith; 74 – R Morris, T Griffiths and 75 – Martin Woods, S Sallaway.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – T Callaghan; 18th – Martin Woods. The only visitor was Stuart Hayes (Murrumbidgee GC), who was pleased to be in warmer climates.
Anthony Alley’s tee shot on the 4th hole hit the green, bounced and got tangled in the flag, then dropped to stop inches from the hole. Marty Cahill had opposite fortunes on the 15th, earning many penalties to finish with a 13.
The Stableford Medley on Sunday was played by a small group in very cold conditions. The day belonged to Ethel Coombs with 31 points. There was no runner-up and no ball sweep. There was only one NTP, being on the 18th and this went to Ethel Coombs.
