There was a good field of forty-two golfers on Saturday playing a Stableford event with the sailing boats in the background on the fourth and fifth holes. Ian Fowler played well to win A grade with a solid round for 37 points. Eric Whalan was the runner up with 35 points. Anthony McGrath enjoyed being promoted to play with the young guns of the club and his score of 39 points gave him a win in B grade. Lenore Zamparini was the runner up with 38 points on a countback from Laurie Murphy. Balls went to Alan Cairney, Sean Mooney, Laurie Murphy, Blake Miller, Kim Rawlings, Gary Willis and Barry Lang.

Shannon Foley won the ladies competition and was nearest the pin on the 9th hole. Terry Robinson was just 20 cm from the pin on the 17th and should have got the putt for a birdie.

There has been a two-person Ambrose event at the club every two weeks on a Sunday. It is a great way to introduce yourself to golf because you don't have to play your bad shots. Some of our players hit some very good shots and this week Katie Graham hit an excellent shot to the 17th green for a hole in one.

Golf next Saturday will be a Par event. On Sunday our two Pennants teams will travel to Lithgow Golf Club for the first round of the 2022 pennants competition. Oberon Masters team will play the Wentworth Falls team and the Kortum Shield team will play the Blackheath team.
