Balls went to Kim Rawlings, Harold Lyme, Kathy Mooney, Mick Mooney, Joe Casey, Peter Dale, Brian Balaam and Terry Greer.

On Saturday, golfers played an 18-hole stableford event. There was an excellent field of 40 golfers.

Adrian Poulten was on fire: he had 43 points, his best round for some time, to easily win A grade.

Alan Cairney was the runner-up with 37 points on a countback from Robyn Stapleton.

In B grade, husband and wife Sean and Kathy Mooney were the winner and runner-up, both coming in with 40 points. Sean was just too good on the back nine to beat Kathy on a countback.

Nearest the pin on the first was Terry Robinson (1.6 metres). Barry Stubbs was closest on the seventh hole, just a metre from the cup.

Balls went to Robyn Stapleton, Doug Collins, Bill Edwards, Pete Griffiths, Dylan Harvey, Kevin McGrath, Peter Ryan and Barry Stubbs.

On Saturday, players will play a stroke round for the monthly medal and count your putts for the putting competition.

Saturday, December 14 will be the Big Trout Motor Inn-sponsored four-person ambrose. Members are encouraged to include some new faces in their team.
