Last Saturday the competition was an 18- hole Stableford event. Even though there had been a multitude of golf over the past few weekends, many players were still keen to enjoy the fresh air and good fellowship.
The A-division was won by Scott Kirkman who seemed to be a tree height or two above everybody else. Runner-up was Niel Duncan on 37 points, on count back from a tight group of players.
The B-division went to Graham Newport with a finely composed 38 points. The ‘starting with a par on the 1st usually leads to calamity’ curse did not affect him. Runner- up was Bruce Squires with 37 points.
The ball sweep went to 36 points on count back, going to: 40 – S Kirkman; 38 – G Newport; 37 – B Quires, F Donohoe, N Duncan, P Grayson, F Hanns, N McMillan;
36 – P Barnes, P Cowhan, A Dukes and C Barrett.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – B Carpenter; 18th – T Morgan. Neither got their 2’s.
Sunday was a busy day with the Rotary Charity Golf Day commencing in the morning and a Stableford Medley run in the afternoon.
The Rotary Charity Stableford Medley, saw 55 players participating.
A big thank you to all sponsors and helpers and especially to Evolution mining for their support. All participants can be proud to have provided nearly $1,000 to the Forbes High School Wellness Hub.
Later on Sunday a Stableford Medley was played, with a small number of participating players. The winner was Andy Cogswell. There was no ball sweep.
The Nissan Classic will be held on 11th and 12th November. On Saturday there will be a Stableford Medley. Sunday will be the 18-hole Stroke Nissan Classic and good scores are expected. The tee time sheet is quite full for this day, but give the Pro Shop a ring to ensure you get your name down.
