Saturday’s competition was the Golf NSW/Keno 2-ball Ambrose, jointly sponsored by Marg and Ron Hurst and E Coombs and F Smith. The 72 players, playing in Men’s, Mixed and Ladies categories, were keen to win and go on to the Regional Finals.
With good numbers in the Men’s category the Runners-up team were also nominated for the Regional Final:
• Men’s Winners: M Spice/A Dukes with 62.75 nett.
• Men’s Runners-up: D Bayley/J Boyle with 65 nett.
• Mixed Winners: A Tucker/J Fletcher with 66 nett.
• Ladies Winners: K Steele-Park/ J Ridley with 70.75 nett.
The ball sweep in the Overall event went to 67 points, going to: 62.75 – A Dukes/M Spice; 65 – D Bayley/J Boyle; 66- B Carpenter/N McMillan, A Tucker/J Fletcher; 66.5 – D Williams/S Hayes, R Webb/ D Culley; 66.75 – P Pymont/R Smith; 67 – D Rhodes/ P Tisdell.
The NTP’s went to: Men 9th – B Squires, 18th – A Dukes; Ladies 9th – S Grierson, 18th – B Drabsch.
A delightful ‘2’ was scored by Jenny Fletcher on the 9th. Using Ash’s drive, which had only just cleared the creek, Jenny made a solid stroke from among the tall grass and watched as the ball shot up the green and dived into the hole.
The Sunday Stableford Medley was played in good conditions.
The winner was Stuart Hayes (Murrumbidgee) on 37 points, with Runner-up being Ethel Coombs on 35 points. The Ball Sweep went to Barb Drabsch on 33 points. Unfortunately there were no NTP’s recorded.
On this weekend we have the Monthly Medal, sponsored by Mc- Feeters Motor Museum on Saturday. Sunday has the Stableford Medley, and the Bogan Gate Open.
