A stableford event was played at Stanthorpe last Saturday, kindly sponsored by club members, Lorraine Evans and Madeline Jarman and we thank them for the day.
Best score in the ladies event was 34 points which was from one of the sponsors, Lorraine Evans. Lorraine excused herself from accepting the winners prize, instead passing it down to the next best score. Nikki Waterworth was the lucky recipient after a countback with Helen Jones, both players on 32 points, Helen collecting runner up.
It took until the final group finished to find a winner in the men’s event, with Eric Ree having a good round of 40 points to take first place. Eric’s back nine of 23 points secured the win on the day.
