Last weekend was the November Monthly Medal, sponsored by Jelbarts Tyrepower, contested by a field of 46 players.
The A-Grade players were really good, with Todd Callaghan declared the winner after his round of 66 nett. Runner-up was Digit McAuliffe with an impressive 69.
The B-Grade contest was close, with Doug Churchill producing a 69 nett to finish ahead of Paul Kay on 70 nett. The C-Graders also did well, where Frank Donohoe led the way with a 70 nett, ahead of Richard Smith on 72 nett.
