VISIT: Barry Lang and Alan Cairney with Member for Bathurst Paul Toole at Oberon Golf Club.

WE had a visit from our local MP Paul Toole this week.

Mr Toole came to visit the club and view some of the work that has been carried out as a result of a couple of grants we have been fortunate to receive on his watch.

Mr Toole was also interested to have a closer look at the defibrillator that has recently arrived at the club. We are now able to assist members with resuscitation if that is needed at some time in the future.

There were a good number at golf this week. Twenty-four played the 12-hole competition on Thursday afternoon.

Harold Lyme was the man this week with 28 points and he was clear of the rest of the field.

Balls went to Paul Behan, Roger Arrow, Joe Casey, Eric Whalan, Barry Stubbs, Gareth Samuel and Pete Griffiths.

Anybody, male or female, who is interested in golf should come and try their hand on Thursday afternoons. 

Oberon gold course is a beautiful 18-hole course on the foreshores of Lake Oberon with all grass greens and pristine, well-groomed fairways. This picturesque course offers many challenges, not the least of which is its hilly terrain.

A field of 36 golfers played a stroke event on Saturday for the monthly medal.

Trophies were donated by Adrian Poulten.

John McKinnon was on his game and had a fine round of 74/70 to win the A grade monthly medal and scratch ball. Kim Rawlings was the runner-up with a solid round of 82/73. 

It took a countback to decide B grade. Gareth Samuel came home strongly to win the B grade medal with 93/74.

Andrew Yeo was the runner-up with 92/74. Andrew also won the B grade scratch ball.

Peter Ryan won a four-way countback to claim the A grade putting competition with 30 putts. Doug Collins won the B grade putting with just 28 putts.

Nearest the pin on the first went to Bruce Amery, Sean Mooney used all his local knowledge to be closest on the seventh and Laurie Murphy was just coming good in his game to take the 17th.

Balls went to Eric Whalan, Alan Cairney and Kirk Roberts.

Golf next Saturday will be an 18-hole stableford event and 4BBB.
