Ladies’ Golf
Last Wednesday there was no golf played at Guyra as 12 ladies ventured out to play in the VW Scramble out at Inverell.
It was a fun warm and dusty day on a very dry course which contributed to some very low scores with the locals winning the day. Thanks girls.
No trophies made their way back to Guyra but with Donna White winning the raffle we didn’t come home empty handed.
This week we are playing a Stableford Event with Julie Walker as starter also some ladies are travelling out to Warialda to play in the 4BBB Open Day. Good luck ladies.
Wednesday 18th September is a Stroke and Putting Competition playing for Joyce Betts’ Trophy.
Positions are filling fast for the inaugural Guyra Sixes to be run over the 19th and 20th October the field is restricted to 32 players only.
Due to the dry conditions golfers are now permitted to tee up when taking your preferred lie.
Men’s Golf
Too windy for golf last weekend so the regional Australia bank ambrose will be rescheduled. Next Sunday will be a stableford for the Grazag trophy. Now is the time to nominate for the Guyra Sixes this can be done by contacting Richard Burey.

Vets Golf
It was very windy, but sunny and warm on Tuesday when 16 Vets played for the Reg Taylor Shield. The stroke winner was Ian Taylor with 83 off the stick and the best stableford score was won by David Bearup with a great score of 42.
Nearest the pins were awarded to Chris Newberry on the 7th, Nancy Prisk on the 9th, Terry Varley on the 10th and Jake Ellis was closest to the pin on the 18th. Ian Taylor had an eagle on the first and Jake Ellis on the 9th. Congratulations!!
