Paul Gow, host of Fox Sports and member of the Professional Golfer’s Association (PGA), competed and mingled with local players at the Yass Golf Course on Friday–Saturday September 8–9.

The event was billed as ‘Paul Gow Golf Weekend’ where players competed in a four-person Ambrose event.

Wayne Wilson, Mark Partridge, Kim Stephan and Wilbur Whyte took top honours with a score of (8.7) 53.3.

Team captain Partridge said they had a “really good day”.

“I want to thank everyone who contributed to this event. We played average but it was good,” he said.

Runners-up were Paul Matthews, Ed Stanford, Sheralee Sheedy and Jamie Stanford.

On Friday, the club hosted a meet and greet drinks with Gow, then golf and dinner on Saturday night.

Club manager Matthew Waters said the event would not have been possible with the support of club staff and volunteers.

“Thanks to everyone who supported this; without you guys, this doesn’t happen,” Waters said.

On Sunday September 10, Richard Julian secured first in the stableford event with 41 points.

Nearest to the pin was Wayne Biddle with 300cm.
