Bellingen Golf Report 12th December 2016
Only 2 chooks won on Wednesday, and they went to B.Woodward 22, from T.Callander 21. The NTP was unclaimed.The short course challenge was unusually quiet, however perhaps a Stewards inquiry is needed into the results.Slasher McCabe posted the best score of the day, with 23.6, from playing partner, Silverfox Hickson, on 29.2, who also picked up not one ,but both of the target holes!!Thurs 8th December - there were 14 players for a stroke event in warm cloudy conditions. The winner with 34.5 net was Morann Paterson and putting was won by Nevyl Farrar with 13 putts. NTPs were won by Kerry Shearer and Morann. There was also a prize for the most putts and the most strokes, but this won't appear in print!
It was good to see Maureen Maloney and Ruth Hall back to join us for our end of year social event and prizes were given for various wins during the year. A fruit cake had been made to raffle and raise money for the Bellingen Hospital Pink Ladies Auxiliary and we raised $80, a stirling effort. The cake was won by Marty Irvine, but he kindly passed it onto Maggie Oliver for her 85th birthday next Monday.
We will just be playing social golf from 15th December and not having a comp until 19th January. If you would like to play during this time, just turn up ready to hit off by 8am for the next few weeks and hit off in groups when ready. Happy golfing to all in 2017!
