Last weekend was the annual Forbes Nissan Classic. This was contested by nearly 180 players with many being visitors from Sydney, West Australia and places in between.
The Scratch winner of the Classic, a stroke event, was local player Peter Nixon. His 71 scratch was accomplished with very little drama. He was well ahead of many of the A-grade, when numerous of them had problems with the greens and the trees.
Another local to taste success was Frank Hanns, who won the C-grade Handicap with a nett 67. He had one of those days when everything meshed well and it was all too easy.
The biggest contingent was a group of 10 players from Cabramatta, closely followed by a group of 9 players from Nelson Bay GC. There were even players from West Australia, who joined the event.
The weekend was an undoubted success, made even more so by the strong support of the sponsors. Once again Frank Spice Nissan was the major sponsor, but there were many others ensuring a lengthy prize list.
On Saturday a 4BBB Stableford event was played. The winners were once again locals, Andrew Cogswell and Peter Nixon with a score of 45 points. They were one shot ahead of a group of six pairings on 44 points. The runners-up were determined by count back, going to Steve Betland and Charlie Dwyer.
