Snippets - Lady golfers have enjoyed competing since the weather has cooled down. Scores have certainly been on the rise. On Saturday, the senior men's stableford competition was won by Dave Kinslow with Bob Worby runner-up. Apparently there was a gremlin in the air with Richard Dunn having to retire before taking his initial drive and another having to head for home on completion of the game being Danny Bastian who also felt unwell. I'm pleased that both fully recovered. News on Murray Peters is that his heart surgery went well and he's now on the improve. Our thoughts are with each of them. Bob Clayton thanks the members who supply him with good used golf balls to be washed and bagged for sale in the shop. Thousands of dollars have been raised for the club coffers. Bags of ten sell for $5 with some of the balls almost new. The main contributors are Terry Brown and Allan Slater.
Not many golfers perform at their 'very best' over long periods but some do break the trend. One being Andy Worden who has been an elite A Grader for many years now and continues to score well. Andy is a keen golfer having followed in June's (mum) footsteps. In the past, Andy has been a committee member and also a member of the board. Some of our members (are or will be) seeking far away destinations for holidays being India, China, Japan and a cruise through Europe. Great that 'Chappy' is out and about now after months of uncertainty. There has not been any news from the women - all must be going well.
