THERE was plenty of moisture around last week, but the storms didn't interfere with the golf. 

There were 18 keen golfers on Thursday afternoon, though none of them could get a measure for nearest the pin on the 17th hole.

Harold Lyme had 30 points to be too good for the rest of the field. Balls went to Sean Mooney, Ken Madison, Brian Balaam, Don Miller and Bill Wilcox.

Saturday was a beautiful day - warm, sunny, with just a light breeze, however most of the golfers struggled to score.

Darren Gordon was an exception and with an excellent round of 40 stableford points was a clear winner in A grade. 

Dylan Kyte was the runner-up with 36 points.

Peter Hutchinson continues his run of good form and continues to improve his handicap.

Peter had a good round on 38 points to win B grade. Justin Evans was the runner-up with 35 points.

Nearest the pin on the seventh was Barry Stubbs at 2.4 metres. Steve Serong was closest on the 17th.

Balls went to Kevin Hally, Tom McKinnon, Marty Hotham and Neil Whalan.

Golf this Saturday will be an 18-hole stableford and 4BBB. On Monday, January 21, we will host the Central West Veterans.  

Some help would be greatly appreciated to keep up with the grass mowing after the recent storms. Get in touch with Mick if you have some time to spare.
