We welcomed players from far and wide for our veteran’s week of golf which started on Monday with an Irish 4BBB and the winners were Les “I’m in a hurry” Forde, Tim Bower, Bruce McMullen and Graeme Hunt with 87pts. Tuesday and Thursday was the 2 day event stableford and the overall Men’s winner was Jim Walkinshaw from Uralla and Ladies winner was Bev Bransdon from Russell Vale Golf Club. We had encouragement awards at the end of the 2 days and I do believe on the 2nd day this award was given to the Captain Jon Izzard.
Congratulations to all the daily winners and the players who were runners up. Too many to mention over 4 days of golf, thank you to all visitors and locals who participated in the week of golf. We had over 90 players each day. Also a huge thank you to all the vets committee and volunteers who helped out on the days, without your support it would have been impossible to manage.
Wednesday the Wednesday Whackers played a single stableford, the winner was Dom Bower with 42pts, runner up was Peter Schultz with 33pts.
Saturday was The Guzzlers Mug sponsored by Geoff Wood and the winner with a great score of 67 was Robbie Porter, runner up with 69 was Jack Doran. The Mars bar went to Tod Jacobs.
