The golf club was pleased to welcome Jason Lawer back to the course last Saturday as the sponsor of the day’s event, a single stableford. Jason joined the members for the afternoon and competed in the day’s event. Although he has not been playing regularly, he has not lost any of his golfing ability, recording a score of 79 for 37 points which included an eagle 3 at the 6th hole. Appreciation to Jason for the day and hope you enjoyed the afternoon of golf.

Both Kev Rowling and Wes Smith returned the best score of the day, 39 points. The countback went in Kev’s favour by one point. Both players had a reasonable front nine with much better scores for the last nine holes, Kev with 23 points and Wes with 22 points. Wes settled for runner up.

In the men’s run down, a ball each to scores of 35 points and better. Special encouragement award for the men’s division went to Eric McLellan who ran into a few difficulties through his round, a number of dashes telling the story.

The ladies event was won by back in form Nikki Waterworth, 36 points for the day after 19 points out and 17 back. Her score may have been better except for two washouts but a birdie and 4 points at the 7th hole made up for this. Neta Thouard continues her good form of late to take the runner up prize with 30 points.

The ladies run down went to scores of 27 points and better to win a ball. Encouragement award went to ladies Captain, Annelle Batterham, who had a day better to forget about. Annelle was the winner of a ladies comp a few days ago, so it shouldn’t be long until she is again scoring well. No doubt, husband Ron will offer a few words of advice and offer a coaching clinic.

Preferred lie rule change now allows preferred only on closely mowed area on the fairway. If in the rough, play it as it lies. This made scoring a bit tougher on the day, but the answer is, keep the ball on the fairway. Much easier said than done! Information on this and other club matters were e-mailed to members through the week. Hope all have read them.

Next week is another stableford event and this will be sponsored by club president, Len Leigh. Time sheet is available on the board and players are asked to arrange their tee times.
