Peter Presnell is on his golf game and came in with 23 points this week along with Andrew Youman. Next in line were Luke Brazier, Bob Burey, Peter Jackson and Peter Mulligan with 20 points.
Seven teams this week get extra points for all team members playing. Great result. A total of 50 players put their score cards in.
* Please check your handicap. Most will change every week – some quite a lot.
* Bowling Club have asked me to pass on this message:
All players must be either golfing members or a club member when playing this competition. There are a few that they would like to invite to become members of the club. Doesn’t cost a lot and requires you to fill out a nomination form.

Vets Golf
Last week the Vets played a Four Ball Stableford. There was a great field of 18 players with some quite good scores. The condition of the course contributed to the good scores with the improvement in the greens after coring. The fairways are also coming along after fertilizing and seeding.
The winners on the day with a great score of 47 points were Len Stanley and John Prisk with the runners up Ian Taylor and Paul Redden with 42. Nearest the Pins were John Prisk on the 10th and Jon Cumming the 18th.
A small working bee was held on Thursday to help clean up some dead trees. Thanks to the Vets who helped. These will be later replaced with similar native trees.
This week was the Melbourne Cup two person Ambrose with the proceeds going to Can Assist.
The Match Play draw is now out so we have all of November to play the first round. Thanks to Phil Devlin for organising the draw.
