The Forbes no 4 golfing pennants team captured the Central West District Association finals flag with a 3-2 win over Cowra last Sunday.
Played at Orange’s Ex-Services Club, the Forbes players did not let a late night at the President’s Lunch deter their winning efforts. In fact some seemed to play better according to team officials.
Best for Forbes was Troy Howe with a 7-6 victory after winning the first six holes.
The team number 1, Richard Smith won 3-2, number 2 Stuart French sealed victory winning two up and number 3 Garry Py- mont lost on the 19th hole, while Gus Coles was behind all day going down 4-3.
Saturday’s 4-ball par event in Forbes was won by Barry Parker and Denis Culley with plus 8 from Lyndon Byrne and Frank Hanns on plus 7 on a count-back from Paul Kay and Paul Pymont along with Ronald Morris and Scott Kirkman.
Sunday’s medley was won by Jill Cripps with 36 points from Martin Woods, 35. Tomorrow is the Bali Memorial (formally Greg Sanderson Memorial) played as a 4-person medley ambrose. Members will gather to remember the late Brian Monaghan with drinks and chat from 4.30-7pm. Members of Brian’s family will be in attendance.
It is also rumoured Fred Collie, or is that Brian, let his partner down on Saturday fading late in his round due to condition. It is believed this has been caused by the shortage of chocolate in the family’s Wambat Street home…
