A fresh bright and sunny autumn morning greeted 32 ladies for their stableford competition today. After the wind yesterday there was no dew to be found which should have helped with more run on the fairways. Alas, however, it was only a select few who were  able to take advantage of the stunning conditions and record scores in the 30’s. Perhaps it was the speedy greens that had us tricked today. Maybe the sound of the currawongs calling or the sight of the majestic sea eagle flying overhead were enough distractions to affect the concentration on the game! No matter what the cause we are all thankful to be out and about on such a stunning course on such a magnificent day.

The first division players weren’t able to set a good example in the scoring stakes. Lyn Hatchman came in with 29 points for the honours pipping Sue Beazley at the post for second spot with 28 points.

Division 2 players were on the money today when Wendy Phillips clocked up a very neat 34 points to claim the number one position, closely followed by Fay Wright with a creditable 33 points. Well done to Fay as she has had a break for some weeks. It’s good to see  her back playing with us again.

The best score of the day went to Nancye Massingham who had a great game to score 36 points in Division 3. Runner up was Sandra Rigney who had a very tidy 33 points.

Next week is the Open Charity Day and the event is a Four Person Texas Stableford with a shotgun start at 8.30am. This is a fun event in which everyone tees off, the best drive is taken and then each player plays out the hole with stableford scoring. We have quite a few visitors joining us so please make everyone welcome. We have a Pro Drive on the 18th for a gold coin donation and there will be a trading table so let’s raise plenty of funds for our local Hospital Auxilary.
