Sunday’s Stableford Medley had a small field due to Pennants duties and the weather. Peter Grayson had the best score with 35 points, but unfortunately there were no runner-up, ball sweep or any NTP’s prizes. Sunday was the first round of the CWDGA Pennants 2019, resulting in a day of mixed results for our teams, who each played a Parkes team.
The Div 1 team had a solid win, defeating Parkes 4/1. S Betland and S Sallaway had big wins. The Div 2 team lost to Parkes 4/1, where Kim Herbert was a shining light with a win on the 20th-hole.
The Div 3 team also lost to Parkes, 3/2. The Div 4 team, with a few debutants, had a close 3/2 win over Parkes.
