Week Ending 22nd July 2017


Hi reader,

We had 6 visitors (must be getting cold down south) for a total Wednesday field of 89.  Grant paired with one of our visitors from South Australia (must be some affinity there) for a good day, taking out the main prize in our 4BBB Stableford competition.  Thanks to Grant and Nick Kostalas for sponsoring the competition.

Peter Kennedy defeated Peter Buchbach in their R1 Single Matchplay - it went to 21 holes.  Ken McKay defeated Lionel Willett 5/4.

You will have noticed boxing ready for new concrete cart paths.   The concrete will be poured next Tuesday morning at 7.30 am.  If anyone can help it will be appreciated; chores vary from pushing wheelbarrows to washing equipment and tools.




As at 15th July 2017

Greg Michael is in the lead by a small margin of only 3 points from Tony Foster who has jumped into 2nd place. Ron Blount and Jason Egan have slipped to 3rd and 4th places respectively.

However there could be some big changes ahead!

Remember that the competition only counts your best 10 scores. Now that 10 rounds have been played the leaders can only improve by bettering a previous score, so those who have missed a round or two can catch up in leaps and bounds.

Players to watch next round are John Kelly, Terry Lyons, Jim Henderson, Bill Galvin and Rob Nash - a good score could propel any one of them into a top-three place.

The full Leaderboard is available on the website Noticeboard.
