This Saturday a few brave souls braved the elements and played in the Lefties/Righties tournament – the morning was a washout and although it cleared in the afternoon it remained bitterly cold! Best gross Johnny Schu & John Mitchell (157), 2nd Shane Hartnell & Andy Small (161). Best Nett Stephen Mawdesley & Ngahooro (136), 2nd Nigel Messenger & Jim Walsh. KC Memorial ‘worst forking shot’ honours went to Jim Dunlop. Best nett woman Mariana McDermott & Alison Sim (166), Best nett mixed John & Julie Warner (143), 2nd Sandra Petersen & Andy Sim (146). Nearest the pins: Roger Ngahooro, Nigel Messenger, Peter Churchill & Jim Walsh. Thanks go to Sponsor Trust House, and Sandra Petersen for great organisation!

Grumpies played stableford last week, 1st Doug Fergusson (41), 2nd Malcolm Bridge, Ray Matthews & Nick Allen (39), 5th Andy Morison (38).

Unfortunately the 9 holers and ladies were rained out on Wednesday.

Thursday brought wind to start, then it settled down beautifully for the 40 golfers that played. 1st Dean Schaef (44), 2nd Andy Morison, Brian Russo (41), 4th Guy Walmsley & Chris Ranish (40). Twos: Brian Russo, Chris Wilkie, Dean Schaef, Sheldon McNamara & Gary James. Nearest the pin Dean Schaef.

Sunday was a crackerjack day, 1st Jan Fergusson, 2nd Ro Griffiths & Mark Trafford (37), 4th John Taylor, John Warner & Terry Fraei. The only two was Shayne Cater.

Special congratulations go to life member Bill Jones and his wife Mavis who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last Thursday – thanks to Derek & Karen Stephens for buying us a drink to toast them! 

Have a good week golfers!
