A windy Thursday reduced the golfers to the dedicated few.

There were only 22 that played the 12-hole social competition this week.

Peter Griffiths handled the conditions admirably and his 29 points gave him a good win.

Ken Maddison was nearest the pin on the first hole. Kevin Hally was the runner-up.

Balls went to Andrew Yeo, Hugh O'Neil, Phil Cummings, Ken Maddison, Bill Wilcox, Ben Turner, Eric Whalan and Laurie Murphy.

Saturday was a magnificent spring day and a good field of 47 golfers took advantage of the conditions.

There were some very good rounds with a good number of our players playing to their handicap or better.

Blake Miller had a fine round for 39 Stableford points to win A grade.

Adrian Poulten was the runner-up on a countback with 37 points.

Bob Rickard had a marvellous round to win B grade with 42 points.

Peter Ryan was the runner up with 38 points.

There was a good group of ladies playing again on Sunday.

Shannon Foley is one of the younger set loving her golf. She had another win with a good round for 38 points.

Foley has only been playing for the last six months and is improving very quickly.

Kath Mooney was the runner-up.

Nearest the pin on the first hole was Alby Davis, while Barry Lang was closest on the 9th.

Balls went to Ian Fowler, Darren Gordon, Barry Lang, Chris Lord, Ken Maddison, Laurie Murphy, Lenore Zamparini, Harold Lyme, Marty Hotham, Kevin Whalan and David Zhou.

Oberon golf club survives on the goodwill of its members and their contribution by way of volunteering for various jobs.

During the week there was lots of work done in cleaning up timber and fallen trees.

This week we will need help in grass mowing and some whiper-snippering work around tees and areas where machines can't get.
