On Saturday, the competition was a 4BBB Stableford Medley, playing for the Bob & Daine Doolin Memorial, and sponsored by the Francis Family. It was a small field of 32 due to the prevailing conditions, but they did manage some good scoring.
The winners were the pairing of Mat Duff and Brett Slack-Smith with 45 points, on count back from Runners-up Don and John Ridley, also on 45 points.
The ball sweep went to non-place getters, being: 43 – R Scott/D Bernardi; 41 – A McDonald/D Rhodes; 40 – R Smith/P Pymont on count back. John Boyle (Tathra Beach) was the only visitor, and who really enjoyed the 19th hole.
The NTP’s went to: 9th – Ladies: D Tilley; Men: D Churchill; 18th – Ladies: Nil; Men: A McDonald. Doug did manage his ‘2’, and was the only player to do so.
There was no Sunday Stableford Medley played, primarily because of the weather.
The Sand Grass Greens Championship, sponsored by Forbes Shire, is being played this weekend, with Round 1 at Grenfell on Saturday and an 11am shotgun start. Round 2 is at Forbes on Sunday, with play commencing at 9am, also a shotgun start. Walk-up starters will be accepted on the day.
Some Forbes players travelled to Cowra to participate in their Open Weekend.
Weather severely affected the Sunday play, reducing the event to 18-holes. The winner scored 70 Scratch, with Steve Betland finishing Runner-up on 72, followed by John Betland in Third with 73. Andrew Dukes retained his form to finish equal 5th alongside Shane Sallaway on 75.
