On the weekend, the Men’s Competition was a Stableford Multiplier contested by 30 pairings. The winners, Ray Taylor and Bruce Carpenter, combined well and used their steady play to score an impressive 81 points.
A long way back were Andrew McDonald and Tony Cogswell, with 71 points. They had two ‘wipes’, but recovered well. The remaining scores ranged from 68 to 32. The ball sweep went to 62 points on count back, going to: 81 – Taylor/Carpenter; 71 – McDonald/T Cogswell; 68 – Shine/G Webb; 67 – Donohoe/Squires, Borger/Borger; 66 – Byrne/Hanns; 62 – Bown/Drane. The NTP’s went to: 9th – P Dawson; 18th – P Maher.
On the cards the scores for individual holes ranged from 9’s to zeros. But the best score on any hole, a 12, was shared by Pymont/Kay (on the 5th) and Dawson/Bayley (on the 7th). The Stableford Medley on Sunday was a quiet affair with many regulars playing away to help other clubs. The winner was Ron Morris with 35 points. There was no runnerup or ball sweep. There was no NTP’s either as no-one hit the green with their tee shot!
This week the ‘Winter 3’s’ competitors did play very well. The winner this week was Murray Field with nett 28. Following behind on 32 were: M Ewing, E Uphill, J Haley. About 10 Forbes players ventured to Caragabal on Sunday to play in their Special Event, a 2-person Ambrose. The field of 46 players enjoyed a good day. Forbes players among the prize winners were: Third on count back – Andrew Dukes and Ash Tucker with 62. Longest drives to Ash and Andy, on separate holes. Good team work by the boys.
