Good luck ladies

Men’s Golf
Last Saturday the club held a 2 person ambrose as a qualifying event for the Keno NSW championships. The winners of the event were Scott Mendes and Peter Presnell with 66¾, runners up were Darrin and Suzanne Towells.
Nearest to the pins were John Prisk on the 7th, Wendy George on the 9th, Bob Constance on the 10th, and Logan Beechey on the 18th.
On Sunday a good field contested an 18-hole stroke for the Landmark trophy. The winner with 71 nett was Chris Newberry with Richard Burey a close runner up.
Nearest to the pins were Ian Taylor on the 7th, Chris Newberry on the 10th, and Darrin Towells on the 18th.
The club championships are being played over the next two weekends and I can’t find a clear favourite in any grade so if you want a chance to go down in history have a go,
