Bellingen Golf Report 30th January 2017
Wednesday 25th - a small field for the Chook Run saw some fine scores topped by H Johnson with 25 points! Birds also went to B Mitchell and L Wheelbarrow, both with 20 points and the Target hole was won by R Williams. Later in the day, the Short Course was won by P Szaif with a nett 21.2 over G Jones with 22.9 (Jonesy's gross of 25 is worth a mention in dispatches- well done!).
Thursday 26th - our regular comps were suspended for the public holiday and we hosted a 3 person Ambrose in aid of the Magpies. 45 starters braved inclement weather for the contest and were rewarded with a sausage sizzle. The winners were the team of S Hulbert, M Hulbert and S Sweeney who went round in 8 under par. B Giffin marked the day in style with a hole-in-one on the 7th.
Saturday 28th - another hot day for 40 starters in the Single Stableford sponsored by Coffs City Motor World. 'A' Grade winner was M Brownlee with 39 on a C/B from R Crawford. 'B' Grade saw some great scores, with M Edsall triumphant with 43 over C Hoskins on 40. Balls went to 35 on a C/B and included T Wilson-Brown, T Cuthel, L Howes, G Jones, N Farrar and P Lazarus. NTPs were bagged by R Williams, P Tyson, M Edsall (2), J Molloy and C Smith. The 2 bob club welcomed a new member in R Raward and Woolley won the raffle. Next week's Saturday comp is a 2 Ball sponsored by Bellingen Cellars, so put your name down and join us.
