Once again a very good field turned out to play last Wednesday and once again the weather treated us very well. The improving and consistent Warren Sellings once again won the day. Warren had a solid 39 points to relegate Ian Bohn (Gailes Golf Club) into second spot with 37. Ian counted out MacLean Golf Club visitor Anne D’Arcy.
Jim Walkinshaw won the NTP on the 3rd my old mate Les (I’m in a hurry) Forde should play with the orange ball next week, although we might have trouble getting him to change from his normal yellow ball.
Several of our veterans went to Glen Innes on Thursday and we had a great day although, as a team, we did not perform very well. Those vets that stayed at home played a stableford and once again it was Anne D Arcy, this time with 40 points who was a clear winner. Coleen Taggart was next best after a countback with Ian Duncan.
