Vets Golf
Last week the 15th February, 14 players enjoyed the great weather to compete in an Individual stableford counting putts. The winner on the day with a great score of 40 points was Ian Taylor, very closely followed by Nancy Prisk with 39. Ian was also the best putter with 26 putts.
Nearest the Pins went to Paul Redden on the 10th, Chris Newberry on both the 7th and 18th, and Nancy Prisk on the 9th.
Last Friday a small but enthusiastic team went to Uralla to compete in their Open Day and came home winning C grade. Let’s hope the form continues tomorrow when we play the second round of the New England Pennants at Walcha.
Next Monday and Tuesday will be our Open Days so let’s put on a great show of strength.

Midweek Golf

Another fine week for golf. Not everyone got the chance to play – apart from having other things on, forgetting to do it and Covid isolation, it really plays havoc with getting a game of golf in.
Highest score this week went to Julie Walker with 27, congratulations. Next on 26 were Lisa Ellis and Wendy George then David Brown on 25. Derek Smith and Richard Burey both had 24 points. Many players had over 20 points this week.
Highest team score for the second week running went to Full House with 95 points. Great score.
Lots of birdies happening lately. Very hard to come by for some of us.
With only a few weeks left before the conclusion of midweek we have decided, rain hail or sun, the scores will be counted every week and no extension of time to get your mid week played.
So hopefully we get a few fine days every week to wind up the mid week competition.
