A beautiful early autumn day greeted golfers as they teed up for the quarter finals of the Algie Mitchell Shield and the club’s stableford round.  Measures to reduce the chance of spreading Covid-19 were clearly explained before hit-off.  There was a flippant wind from the SE but it seemed to have little effect on play.  Recent rains and milder weather saw the course green up considerably and there were far fewer bare patches on the fairways.  The quarter finals of the Algie Mitchell Shield were all close with all four of the groups heading to the 10th “all square”.  At the end of the day three semis went to 1up and the other 2up.  The Stableford round saw some wonderful golf followed by close meetings with trees deflating many players.  The eventual winner picked up four birdies to have a very memorable round, he felt it was an enjoyable day to be out on the course.  On a wonderful autumn day the results were;

Winner; Steve Wilkins (17) – 39pts from Scott Willians (15) – 36pts

NTPs; 1st – Roger Baker, 15th – Pat Chisholm
