After last Saturday’s weather golfers were pretty lucky to be able to play at all on Sunday.

However the volunteers were in action in the morning and everything was ready for the 12.30pm shotgun for the Caltex Trophy Day.

A total of 14 teams of three were organised and dispatched to their various tees on time and all finished in good time.

You couldn’t say the conditions were perfect but even so very good cards were returned.

So good that the first three places were decided by fractions.

The winning team on the day was Mark Troth, Marty Starr and Jacob Troth with 57 1/3.

They were closely followed by Barry Bradtke, Jamie Logan and Carl Brus on 57 2/3 and the team of Tim Bailey, J Heathcote and A Whitechurch came third on 57 5/6 – very close results.

Balls in the ball competition were distributed to 61 1/3 and better but there was no nearest the pin.

The longest drives were performed by Dustin Hocking on the 16th, Tim Bailey on the 4th and for the ladies Megan Starr on the 10th.

Everyone concerned with the organizing of this day are to be congratulated.

Special mention for the four-wheeler refreshment vehicle and the sausage rolls, and thank you very much Caltex.

With another medal round washed out last Saturday it looks like a full month of catch up when the weather does take up.

However Wednesday’s are cooperating.

Ten players teed off last week and Rob Holland led the field with 38 points.

Brian Brown is always up there to be second on 37 points and Allan Kelly had 36 points to be third.

Balls were won by Max, Rob, Brian and Allan; and Doggie hit one good shot to be nearest the pin.

A lot of social golfers are waiting for better weather, but six keen ones were on the course last Sunday morning.

Bec is still showing off to the men winning with 33 nett, Allan Logan was runner up on 34 nett and was also the best putter, and the gorilla for the day was J Harris.

The nearest the pin jackpots.

The tipping competition is hotting up, helped along by a family hot curry night organised for this Friday night, June 22.

Take your pick or sample all of the assorted curries, cost of $10 for adults, concessions for kids.

Everyone welcome of course, and bookings would be nice to know.

After round 14 in the tipping competition S McCann still leads with 138 points, Jan Myers and Greg Oliver are equal on 133 points.

In the junior competition L Mitton is coming first on 132 points, C Brebner is next best on 129 points, and there are four people on 126 points.

There is a change of programme for next weekend, CJ Anderson’s day will be played at a later date, and a stroke round will be played instead.

On Sunday the format will be a stableford and a large contingent are traveling to Peak Hill to contest the Lachlan Valley Pennants.

Good luck and bring home another Pennant.

The following weekend, Saturday June 30 a stableford is programmed and on Sunday July 1 it is the ever popular Caragabal Open – get organised.

Duty members for this week’s Sunday night meat market are Greg Oliver and Shirley Mawhinney.



I do not have the results to hand for the WDLGA Sand Greens Team Event held at Albert as yet, also no results from the Cowra Ladies Golf Tournament, hopefully these will by to hand by next week.

Results from Last Week

No Wednesday results to hand. Saturday championship round and medal was washed out but the rain was certainly very welcome.

No ladies played on Sunday, some played in the men’s competition.

Next Weeks Programme

There may be some changes to this programme, so all lady golfers are asked to check with our captain Virginia to check on the changes, and see what is being played.

Listed are 1st Round of the Championships and 3rd Medal Round for Saturday, and on Sunday a 4BBB Par for L Johnson and M Barr Trophy.

A Par will be played on Wednesday June 27 to finish off the week.

Until next week , good golfing.
