On Saturday the men’s competition was the Monthly Medal, sponsored by Terry Bros Carpets. A field of 58 were keen to contest as best they could to be tagged ‘winners’.
The A-Grade was won by Dave Mylecharane with a 71 nett, on count back.
Andrew Duke, playing in the last group of the day, was runner-up. The B-Grade witnessed history when Doug Churchill scored 69 nett to take the winnings. Runner- up, yet again, was Michael Spice, with a 71 nett.
The C-Graders needed count backs to separate the top scorers. The winner was Bruce Squires on 72 nett with visitor, Rowan Fessey as runner-up.
The ball sweep went to 74 nett on count back: 69 – D Churchill; 71 – D Mylecharane, A Dukes, M Spice; 72 – M McGlashan, R Webb, S Sallaway, B Squires, E Gaffney, R Fessey, T Griffiths, M Cahill; 73 – N Duncan, P Dawson; 74 – H Steel-Park. The NTP’s went to: 9th – G Collits; 18th – S Sallaway.
The Stableford Medley on Sunday had a good number of players, playing among visitors and the Super Sixes grand final.
The winner was Brett Byrnes from Condo with a tidy 38 points. The runner-up was Peter Jackson of Coffs Harbour on 36 points.
Unfortunately there was no ball sweep. The NTP’s were a bit hit and miss. On the 9th it was Alf Davies, who got his ‘2’, while on the 18th everybody missed the green.
