An 18 hole Stroke was played, sponsored by South Grafton News ‘n’ gifts. Only a small field contested this event after the very successful Jacaranda Open day held the Friday before. Winner was Viv Nichols with a fine 68 nett from Kim Wiblen (Maclean) with 72.

Monday ladies played a 9 hole Stableford in two divisions. The winner of Div 1, Kim Perl had 21 points with Cheryl Creighton r/up with 18; Div 2 Judy Pullinger won with 21 and Chery Connor on 18 was r/up.  NTP on the 1st was won by Judy Pullinger.

The ‘closing day’ for the Monday players will be held on November 18. Theme for the day is merry and bright – so come dressed accordingly.

Any one of these combinations could win their division. The final round is today with a 8.30am shotgun start and will be played as an 18 hole American Foursomes with ESP Espresso sponsoring the daily event.

Friday October 1

Last Friday was an 18 hole Stableford. Glenda Chad has continued her fine form with a great score of 40 points from r/up Norma Carter 38 and Elaine Shand 34. We had a visitor for the week, Sonya Hickey from Cromer Golf Club.  

Reminder the women’s Presentation night is fast approaching; Thursday November 14 is the date. The night will start off with drinks at 6.30pm, 7pm for presentation and dinner served at 7.30pm. Bookings are now being taken by Shirley or Jane so they can have numbers for catering purposes.

Finally, good luck to the women going to Byron Bay today to play in their tournament on Thursday and Friday. Hopefully you will find some green grass to play on. Our players that visited Armidale last weekend only found dry dirt to play off, not looking good for all our golf clubs without water or recycled water on the far North Coast.
