Les won B grade with the best score for the day, 68 nett. Joshua Wood was runner-up, 72 nett.
Another to be smiling celebrating after was Scott Kirkman with an eagle two on the 12th hole.
Golf scheduled for this weekend – Saturday stroke and the Monthly Medal sponsored by Adept Plumbing. Note for men on Sunday, course will be closed until 1pm for the Ladies Open.
Entries are starting to flood in for the Forbes Open Tournament set down for Saturday and Sunday, 15-16 May. Sunday’s play will also be a round of the NSW Open qualifiers.
With our tournament coming up, just a reminder to keep the game moving to eliminate slow play. Shotgun starts are sometimes the cause of hold ups in the field and we all need to get in for lunch also. After holing out, head to the next tee and someone should tee off immediately, don’t all stand there and mark the cards before someone tees off. Ready Golf, this will also help to keep the game moving.”
There was nothing but praise for the Forbes golf course and organising committee on Monday evening after the first round of this week’s Forbes Veterans Week of Golf.
