A major event in golf is to be played on Sunday June 17 when the rescheduled Caltex 3-person ambrose will be contested.
This event was originally listed for May 20 in your programme book, but was washed out. We hope for better weather this Sunday.
In an effort to interest more people in the game of golf, it has been stipulated that each team of three must have one non-golfer or casual golfer without a handicap, or just someone who might like a Sunday afternoon walk or ride around a beautiful golf course and enjoy the plentiful bird life and kangaroos.
A further stipulation is that each player must have at least four drives and that there will be a 12.30pm shotgun start.
This last requirement is to ensure that all teams finish in good time.
Captain Danny requests every golfer to make a special effort for this one, so let’s all cooperate.
Golf was restricted last week with festival doings and a lot of visitors in town.
However, on Monday, being Marco’s day, a very pleasing 18 turned up to play a stableford. Enough for two grades and scores were very good.
The A grade winner was Danny Fanning with 41 points, 2nd place went to Craig McMahon and Brian Brown on 37 points, and Paul Taylor came 3rd on 35 points.
The B grade winner was Steve Mitton with 42 points, Max Barr was happy with 39 points and 3rd place was shared by Peter Harris and Allan Kelly.
In the ball competition, 36 points and better won balls, but for all these good scores no-one was good enough to get on the 18th and be nearest the pin.
Two matches were played in the knockout competitions, Danny Fanning defeated Paul Taylor in the singles 4-3, and Steve Mitton and Greg Hughes were victorious over Steve Walker and Allan Logan 5-4.
Wednesday’s stableford attracted eight players and here Cec Aston won the ball for first place with 35 points.
A group of three, Bob Bassett, Chris Fletcher and Rob Holland were equal 2nd and Mick Nealon was 3rd on 30 points.
Cec, Bob and Chris all won balls, and there was no nearest the pin.
Only six social golfers turned up to play the bottom nine last Sunday morning.
Bec continued her winning form, longest drive last week, winner this week 33 nett. Allan Logan was runner up on 34 nett and also the best putter, and S Harris managed the longest drive.
The nearest the pin jackpots.

The Lachlan Valley Pennants are also on Sunday June 24 at Peak Hill, a good representation from Grenfell is assured – 14 nominations already, four more needed to make three teams.
