Last Friday the Forbes Golf Club proved to be a hive of activity with the staging of the $11,000 Legends Pro-Am Golf Tournament which finished in a three way tie between Steve Conran from Orange, Peter Jones from Sydney and Byran Wearne from Heathcote, Victoria all on two under par 70.
While Legends players are aged 50 years and over a Seniors category is also played for those aged 65 and over to be taken out by Grant Kenny of the South Coast on one under par 71.
Steve Betland from Forbes proved best in the amateur ranks winning with a par round 72 from a polished field of 111 players which included players from UK and Canada.
Other Forbes winners included Peter Dawson, A grade stableford with 37 points; Ken Sanderson B grade winner 40 points, Runner Up Ray Taylor 38 points; Ralph Baker C grade winner 38 points, Runner Up Peter Tisdell 37; C grade scratch Graham Newport 16 points; Ladies stableford winner Debbie Tilley 36 points; nearest the pin Verna Lane.
While many were thanked for their sup- port of the tournament, special mention was made of the efforts to see that all was in place for successful staging made by tournament director Andrew Dukes. It is felt that the tournament will be part of the golf- ing calendar in 2020.
Last Saturday club stalwart Albie Callaghan sponsored a four-ball ambrose which was won by Ethan Gaffney, Damien Kennedy, Clint Hurford and Shane Sallaway with 54.1/4 nett on a count-back from Daniel Bayley, Todd Callaghan, John Boyle and Jacob Bernardi.
Ball sweep winners, top two plus Warwick and Jean Judge, Judy Hodge and Pater Nixon; Martin Cahill, Andrew Dukes, Mick Spice and Brian Everest; Sharon, Andrew and James Grierson and Peter Cowhan.
