Saturday’s competition was a 4BBB Stableford Medley event, sponsored by Cahill’s Footwear. The field of 84 players were keen to master the blustery conditions to earn a prize.
Three pairs finished on 49 points, with a count back sorting them out. The winners were Greg Webb and Brian Doyle, and runners-up were Alf Davies and Laurie O’Connor. The unlucky pair to miss out were Sarah Black and Louise French.
The ball sweep went to 46 points, going to: 49 – G Webb/B Doyle, A Davies/L O’Connor, S Black/L French; 48 – D Earl/B Tooth, P Pymont/F Donohoe, J Carpenter/V Lane; 47 – P Maher/M Spice, G Drane/R Pluis; 46 – S Sallaway/D Churchill, L Little/M Westwood, B Hodges/S French.
The NTP’s went to: Ladies 9th – J Hurkett; 18th – E Coombs, Men 9th – J Carpenter; 18th – P Duke. The visitors included Stuart Hayes (Murrumbidgee), Kevin Robinson (Buninyong), Ray Pluis (Wagga Wagga), John Doyle (Tathra Beach) and Gerry Shelly (Bacchus Marsh).
Sunday had bright sunshine and a chill in the air, but once again a good band of players enjoyed the conditions.
The winner was Ron Morris, with 39 points. Runner-up was Brett Thomas with 37 points. There was no ball sweep. The NTP’s went to: 9th – Stuart French; 18th – Barb Drabsch. No 2’s by anybody. At the Parkes Open the pairing of Steve and John Betland were one of four pairs that finished at 2-under in the 4BBB on Saturday, but they missed out on count back.
The Open, played over 27-holes on Sunday had a full field of over 140 players. The winner was P Kirwin (Cowra) who finished 1-under after 27 holes. Runner-up was J Cowan from Orange on 2-over. Third was Steve Betland on 3-over, with John Betland finishing 4th on 5-over. Another Forbes golfer among the prizes was Cam McMillan who picked up an A-grade Handicap prize. Well done guys.
