How about that, almost two weeks with only a few heavy dews and the odd spot of drizzle, the course had gone from “mostly sloppy” to “sloppy here and there”. The Medal round began under clear skies with virtually no wind and plant of mid winter sun. Pretty soon the jumpers came off and the hats were put on. While the 6th and 7th fairways were still very wet leading to deeply plugged balls players could easily found their ball on the remainder of the course. The greens were still quite fast with less than the usual borrow, players had to be careful when putting down to the cup or risk rolling off the green. We were pleased to again welcome local golfers whose clubs were in lock down. On a magnificent mid winter’s day the results were;
Winner and July Medalist; Davie Kenny – 97/22/75 C/B from Steve Wilkins – 94/19/75 & Pat Chisholm – 86/11/75
Least Putts; Simon Donovan – 28
1st – $40 Butcher’s Voucher – Andrew Laing
2nd – $20 Drummonds Voucher – Mal Mottram
3rd – Sleeve of balls – Steve Wilkins
