But the rain stopped and the sun came out so our golfers teed off hoping that Mother Nature would at least let them finish their rounds. Luckily it was fine for the afternoon! Ian Foot scored well to take the A Grade win with 38 points and for B Grade Gerard Hyland shot 35 points. Wanda Paterson took out the ladies with 33 points. NTPs Raymond Liley, Wanda Paterson, Gary Gemmola, Barbara Young-Harding, and Trevor Chappell hit the jackpot.

Most of the afternoon players managed to get their rounds in and there were some good scores posted. A Grade winner Andrew Carr shot 66 and was this month’s medal winner. B Grade winner Tony Hopwood shot 70. Lady’s winner Kaylene Potter had 88 and the Resort ladies win went to Sue Booth with 34 points. Guest winner Andrew Ellem had 69.
