Stableford off the Red tees for the Ladies today. Warm, windy day made for interesting conditions. Lisa Reade [22] came out on top with a score of 36 points, with the ball pool running down the line to 34 points. Congratulations to Eva Chappell, who was the nearest to pin on the 7th hole.

Saturday September 15
Stableford off the Blue tees today for the Men. Horrendous conditions to play golf, but that didn’t stop some tough (or crazy?) golfers from hitting the course. In a blow out, it was Ivan Kevric [10] who finished on top with 36 points, which is a remarkable effort considering the weather. Runner up was Jason Dowling [16] who closed out his round on 32 points. The ball pool for the day ran down the line to 31 points. Nearest to pins went to Hayden Coles (5th hole, 3.80m), Mike Fleming (7th hole, 3.10m), Ivan Kevric (13th hole, 0.39m) and Steve Troon (17th hole, 1.79m).

Sunday September 16
Stableford Medley today, Blue tees for Men and Red tees for Ladies. Cold morning, with the sun slowly revealing itself, and the wind increasing throughout the day.
