Vets Golf
Last week saw plenty of golf for the Veterans.On Tuesday, nine players competed in an individual stableford counting putts. The winner was Pat Grills with a score of 37, closely followed by Dave Bearup on 36. The best putter was Ian Taylor with 24 putts.
Nearest the pins went to Jon Cumming on the 7th and Chris Newberry the 9th. It will be good to play the whole 18 holes again this week with the back 9 now open. 
Also on that same day, four players travelled to Armidale for their Vets Open. It was a good day of golf with Phil Devlin top scoring for the Guyra team with 32 points. Although the course was in excellent condition, scoring was not high with more than half the players scoring below 30 points.
The other game played last week was the Walcha Vets Open on Friday. It was great to see eight players travel down there to compete including our newer Vet Scott Mendes. Again our best player was Phil Devlin who is on fire at the moment. Phil came Runner Up for B Grade on a count back with a score of 36 points. The sand greens did not put him off.
With the new card machine being installed this week we will see some changes with the starting of matches. The start will be from the Club like it used to be and members are asked to be patient until we get fluent with the operation.

Midweek Golf
Great start for midweek golf. Out of the 60 players registered 55 put in score cards. Fantastic.
Leading the scoreboard is Nuts and Jugs with 77 points. Coming up second is Full House on 73 points.
Individual leader went to Lisa Ellis with 22 points. On 21 points we had Pat Grills and Sheree Clarke. Heaps of 19 and 20 point scores.
Welcome to the new golfers. Hope you enjoy the challenge.
As for the Birdie challenge – 1 woman and 7 men got birdies this week.
Can everyone please remember to put their names and team name on the scorecard please. (on the back would be ok) This week with a couple of the cards it was a lucky guess who they were.
Also, as this is a stableford event, we need the amount of strokes and points scored.
Happy golfing everyone.
