Thursday afternoon golf was well-supported.

Peter Ryan, who is showing a bit of good form coming into the club championships, was the victor on the day. Balls went to Bob Bearup, Hugh O’Neil, Steve Serong, Brian Balaam, Bob Slattery and Billy Wilcox.

A reasonably good field played a stableford event on Monday.

Bob Rickard stole the show with a good round of 39 points and Dennis O’Connell was the runner-up with 38 points.

Irene Bishop was the best of the ladies with 40 points.

Nearest the pin on the first went to Bob Rickard. Balls went to Eric Whalan, Neil Whalan and Ray Ross.

Club championships will begin next Saturday with an 18-hole stroke event.Members will play for the monthly medal and a putting competition.

This year we have made some changes to the championships, especially for the higher handicap players.

A grade will be from 0-10, B grade from 11-15, C grade from 16-19 and C1 will be 20 and up. Players on a handicap of 20 or more can still win the C grade championship, but they can play the event as a stableford competition instead of a stroke event.

Players will be seeded from the second round of the championship.

The A grade seeded players will hit off at 11am on Sunday, B grade seeded players at 11.15, C grade seeded players at 11.30 and C1 seeded players at 11.45.

All players will need to check with the club house on Saturday evening to determine their seeding. Handicaps are fairly close in each of the grades, however, the most keenly contested grade is probably B grade.

Defending champions are Kyall Ryan in A grade, Steve Serong in B grade, Terry Robinson in C grade and Don Miller in C1.

I am sure that there will be plenty of guys trying to knock them off their perch.
