This weekend will see one of the best field of golfers ever to contest a tournament in Forbes with 13 players on handicaps of three or less nominated for the $5,500 Nissan Classic. Players this year are from as far afield as the Gold Coast to all points across NSW. Tee off on both days for first players start at 7am with the last at 1.30pm. Spectators are welcome.
Chairperson of the Classic committee, Randal Grayson said support from sponsors was again excellent. Saturday evening a calcutta will be conduced with the cream of A grade players involved. “Come over and you never know you may end up with the winner. Last year’s winner collected close to $2,000,” Randal said. Last weekend’s results: A grade winner Phil Duke with 73 nett on a count-back from Todd Callaghan (runner-up), Peter Grayson and Ray Taylor.
Paul Kay scored best for the day, 72 in B grade and on a count-back from Jeff House. Tom Edols led C graders home with 73 nett from Ron Morris, 75.
