GOLFERS are enjoying the wonderful spring - a great course in amazing condition.

Andrew Yeo had a return to form and his round of 40 points comfortably gave him a win in A grade. Darren Gordon was the runner-up with 37 points on a countback.

Mark Mathews had a fine round of 38 points to win B grade. Don Miller was the runner-up with 35 points.

Kathy Mooney won the ladies' competition.

Balls went to Chris Kalos, Eric Whalan, Robyn Stapleton, Anthony McGrath, Neil Whalan, Rob McGrath, Kevin McGrath, Kim Rawlings and Hugh O'Neil.

While we continue with the good weather, the grass keeps growing, so we need helpers on a regular basis. Contact Mick for directions.

While COVID is still active, we will continue to leave the flagstick in while putting.

Cart drivers are encouraged to stick to the cart paths, keep well clear of the greens and banks around the greens and try to avoid driving playing areas.

Don't forget to keep your eclectic scores up to date. There is a folder on the bar for names to be entered in the open event on November 19 and 28.
