Saturday was the Monthly Medal, sponsored by Walkers Ag-n-Vet, contested by 64 players in difficult conditions.
The A-Grade winner was Steve Betland with a nett 74. A good front-9 was offset by an ordinary back-9. Runner-up was Mark Collits on 76 nett, who snuck in ahead of two other players.
The B-Grade winner was Brian Everest with a 70 nett. He had a good back-9 after an indifferent front-9. Runner-up was Brian Doyle with 71 nett.
The C-Graders put in some good scores with Milton Cartwright (71) and Geoff Betland (73) showing what could be done.
The ball sweep went to 76 nett on count back, going to: 70 – B Everest; 71 – M Cartwright, B Doyle, A Borger; 72 – P Barnes, S Uphill; 73 – G Betland; 74 – L Little, P Kay, S Betland; 75 – A Callaghan, D Culley and 76 – G Coles, M Collits, S Kirkman, N McMillan, R Nixon. The NTP’s went to: 9th – Terry Griffiths; 18th – Troy Howe.
