THE number of players was reduced this week due to the weather.

The threat of rain on Thursday kept the field to 14. Irene Bishop made the most of a small field with an excellent round of 32 points, proving too good for the men.

Barry Stubbs was nearest the pin on the first hole. Balls went to Mick Mooney, Peter Dale, Sean Mooney and Barry Stubbs.

Saturday's golf was rain-affected and, in addition, the Oberon Show reduced the number of players. Even though there weren't as many players, there were some excellent scores.

Robert Hayden played a par round to score 43 points and win A grade. Adrian Poulten wasn't far behind with a very good score of 41 points to be runner-up.

Doug Collins had a good day out with the sticks and his round of 40 points was enough to win B grade. Kath Mooney was the runner-up.

Nearest the pin on the first was Dennis O'Connell and Adrian Poulten was just 52 centimetres from the hole on the ninth. Balls went to Terry Robinson and Eric Whalan.

The second round of the Masters Pennants was postponed because of the heavy rain at Leura.

Golf on Saturday will be the first round of the fourball Par Championship, playing for the Jack Robinson Memorial Shield. Members are encouraged to team up for this event before Saturday.

Members are reminded that the Trainee Pro-Am will be played on Monday, March 9.
