Last week a field of 11 ladies played a Par Medal Round.

Nearest the Pin Winners were Wendy Jackson on the 7th Hole, Wendy George on the 9th, Donna White on the 10th and Pip White on the 18th.
Julie Walker and Karen Oehlers played the final round of the Kirks IGA Matchplay Competition with Julie winning the event.
Also last week Vicki Reeves, Jenny Rogers and Shona Mulligan played well in the District level in the NSW Golf Medal Final held in Armidale but did not qualify to play in the State Final at Stonecutters Ridge Golf Course in Sydney.
This week we are playing the 4BBB Championship sponsored by Guyra Welding Works with a 27 hole competition.
Next week is a Stroke and Putting Competition with Belinda Lenehan as the starter.
Last week, the 15th October saw a much better day for golf. A 4 Ball Best Ball was played by 14 Vets with the winning team of Jim Betts and Kim Shaw combining well to score 47 points.
The best Individual Stableford winner with 41 points was Nancy Prisk. The nearest the pins went to Pat Grills on the 10th and Wal Chapman the 18th.
It is good to see the greens improving with the extra water obtained from the 10th dam.
Two players are travelling to Armidale next week for their Open Day. Up and coming events are of course the Melbourne Cup Ambrose on the 5th of November and Uralla are holding their Vets Open on November 22nd.
