The Golf Club finally had dry weather on Saturday–Sunday, October 15–16 for all the holes and carts to be used.

“Thanks to the many hours put in from the greens staff and the many volunteers who worked tirelessly to make it happen,” event organiser Neville Mathews said.

In Saturday’s stableford event, the A grade prize went to Graham Fleming with his 36 points to win on a countback from the current Guzzler Robby Furner. In the B grade, a count back was also required with Neville Matthews coming out on top from Donnie Douglas, with them coming in with 38 points.

In Sunday’s stableford event, it was Phil White who posted the best score of the weekend with 39 points to take the prize money, which was a well-deserved victory for Phil, who has spent many hours mowing around the course of late.

The previously postponed events have now been rescheduled. The Club Championships are now marked to start on the third week of November and the 4BBB Championships will be held on December 17.
