With the poor weather of the last few weekends, the Yass Golf Club course has been rather quiet.
Players preferred to spend the time in front of the heater. Who can blame them?
But then there are always the players who take to the course whatever the conditions.
On Saturday we had 21 players take on the rain, with Greg Weir on 40 points and Bill Mackay on 39 points coming in with impressive scores for the conditions.
Sunday was mildly better, with Wilbur Whyte coming in with a 66 Nett and Tim Kelly a 77 Gross.
The previous weekend wasn’t a lot better weather wise but Rob Field, John Brady and Joe Cooke managed to take the prises in the qualifying for the NSW 4BBB Championship.
Qualifying for the playoffs in championships were: R Field, J Brady 49, N Napper, R Johnson 44, M Curtis and D Douglas 42 points.
This weekend we have the Springbank two Person Medley Ambrose, so grab a partner and test the elements and your skills.
The course is currently looking a million dollars and the greens playing slick.
