Good Field at Golf
The format on Saturday was a 4BBB Stableford Medley, sponsored by Cahill’s Footwear. There were 67 in the field, making up 34 pairings. The winners were the pairing of Craig Barrett and Peter Grayson. They did team well,
scoring a number of 3-pointers and a 4-pointer to more than cover the three misses they had.
Runners up on count back were the Woods, father and son, with 46 points. They showed brilliance with birdies on the 7th and 15th holes, and managed no less than 2-points on every hole. The ball sweep went to 43 points and was
shared by those above and: 46 – A Callaghan/ Chandler, 45 – Rhodes/Finn, Baker/F Smith, Newport/Drane 43- J Cripps/Taylor, Edols/Cartwright, Morris/Kirkman.
Nearest the pins went to: 9th – B Chandler; 18th – R Taylor, but neither got their ‘2’. Across the whole field there were only two 2’s scored, and both on the 9th. They went to the Callaghan/Chandler and L Godden/ Carpenter pairings.
Sunday’s Stableford Medley was well supported with a field of 27. The winner was Jordan Brett with 43 points,
and showing a desire to put an early tan on his legs. Runner-up was Peter Dawson with 42 points, on count back from Rob Webb and Michael Wood Jnr. The ball sweep went to 36 points and included:
42 – Rob Webb, Michael Wood Jnr,
38 – Kevin Vale, 37 – Ray Taylor, 36 – Ethel Coombs, Scott Kirkman, Shane Sallaway.
Don’t forget the “Golf Open Day” on Sep 27. Players are encouraged to come along and help any visitors, and also to encourage anybody they know who may be interested to come along and have ago. The fun starts at 10am.
Successful Junior Golf Camp

Division 1 – Will Gordon/ Harry Leadbitter with 30 shots.
Division 2 – Matty Duke/Jack Nadin/Fred Stuckey with 35 shots.
Tuesday had more coaching sessions for the newer starters, and the “Juniors-on-the- Move” 9-hole and 6-hole events. The results for those events are:
9-Hole Division 1 winner: Brianna Duncan.
9-Hole Division 2 Winner: Gus Hooper.
6-hole Handicap Winner: Alec Mclean.
Despite a cold wind the juniors really showed enthusiasm throughout the coaching sessions and their play.
