Saturday’s Men’s Competition was a combination of an Individual Stroke event, sponsored by Loomzys Fish N Fix, and the final of the Medal of Medallists.
Among the field of 71 were 18 of the eligible 29 players vying for the Medal of Medallists Trophy. The field was bolstered by a group of visiting golfers from Crookwell Golf Club, and other individuals taking a break from visiting family.
While the Medallists’ scores were not breath-taking, three finished on nett 72, requiring a count back. Peter Dawson was declared the winner of the Medal of Medallists Trophy, over Clayton Alley and John Zannes.
Both Peter and Clayton were dual medallists through the year. Some form players who faltered through the day included Troy Howe, Brian Everest and Harry Callaghan.
In the Individual Stroke event the Division 1 winner was Michael Spice, who fired a very worthy score of 69 nett. Runner-up, on count back, was Kim Herbert with nett 71. The Division 2 was won by Blair Thomas, with 68 nett, ahead of Runner-up Bruce Chandler with nett 70.
The Sunday Stableford Medley field was small, with the participants going out early to beat the heat. The honours went to Frank Donohoe and Ben Webb from Dubbo.
