Troy Urquhart takes Yamba Thursday Stableford

A big thank you to our Yamba Veteran golfers.

The Veterans have decided to buy four new practice mats for the practice nets. They should be in place before our Mi Organics Pro-Am on August 8-9.

We have 88 professionals confirmed to play on that weekend.

Thursday Stableford

We had a field of 163 players begin their game, 84 brave souls completed the 18-holes in very trying conditions.

In A Grade, Troy Urquhart was successful again with 39 points. Doug Luckie was runner up from Barry Fisher; B Grade winner was Jan Dampney with the score of they day, 40 points from David Barnsley and Mike Gills; Keith Britton won C Grade on a countback from one of new, young members Tom Roberts on 37 points. Geoff Butler took out 3rd place.

NTPs went to Robert Gallagher (3rd), Troy Urquhart (9th), Mike Gills (10th), Troy Urquhart (12th) Pro Pin on the 14th went to ‘guess who’ Troy Urquhart, Steve Scott won the 17th.

Saturday’s Stableford and Sunday’s 4BBB were both washed out.

Upcoming: Our Men’s Foursomes will be played on a Saturday for the first time, the date, August 29.

This Saturday’s monthly medal will be played off the blue markers with your blue handicap. This is to save the black tees for the Pro-Am.

Happy golfing and stay safe.
