It has been a busy week on the golf course, good numbers on Thursday and one of the largest fields for the year on Saturday.

There were 23 golfers for the social comp on Thursday afternoon. Nathan Healey had one of his best round for 27 points to win. Balls went to Dave Campbell, Ken Maddison, Bob Rickard, Hugh O'Neil, Peter Rayan and John McKinnon.

For those who are interested in starting golf, the Thursday afternoon competition is an ideal place to start. Just turn up after 11.30am and there will be someone to guide you around.

Saturday was the first day for some time that we were able to play in groups of four. With some of the lockdown restrictions relaxed golfers were able to enjoy some more social interaction.

We had 48 golfers play a Stableford competition on Saturday in beautiful conditions. Rob McGrath was in good touch and with a round of 37 points was the A grade winner. Darren Gordon has had a return to form recently and his round of 36 points made him runner-up.

One of our visitors from Orange, Wayne Tarasonka had a good round for 38 points to win B Grade. Ken Maddison was the runner-up with 36 points.

Balls went to Mick English, Jason Evans, Anthony Miller, Blake Miller, Dennis O'Connell, Kim Rawlings, Scott Rowlandson, Dave Campbell, Peter D'Arcy, Gerard Hogan and Kevin Whalan.

Golf on Saturday is an 18-hole Stableford.

Women's golf

A small field of 10 women played a Stableford last week in lovely golfing weather.

While continuing to maintain social distancing and abiding by all precautions, everyone was pleased to be out on the golf course again!

The winner was Katie Graham with 30 points on a countback from Glennie McGrath. Coming in third was Marjorie Webb.

Stablefords will continue for a few more weeks yet.

Women's golf is played on Wednesday mornings.
