We finally had a dry weekend that allowed members of the Parkes Golf Club to shed the cobwebs off their golf clubs and prepare for some competition golf. The men contested an 18 hole 2 Man Team Stableford last Saturday for trophies put up by members Michael Craft and Peter Dixon. Holes 1 to 6 were played as a Best Ball, holes 7 to 12 as Aggregate and the final 6 holes as a Mutliplier. The last 6 holes proved crucial as Michael Dellaca and Scott Mann edged out Matthew Swetland and Rod Kiley on a countback after both pairs returned excellent scores of 61.
In the Individual event it was plain sailing for Shen Taranto who recorded the day’s best nett score of 39 points.
Ball Winners on the day went to 61 Matt Swetland and Rod Kiley, 58 Mitch McGlashan and Cameron Butler, 53 Neil
and Cameron McMillan and on 52 were Marty Woods and Max Haley. Only a small contingent of ladies contested
an 18 Hole Stableford round for the Cherrie Phillips trophy. Junior Kasey Fay-Rice spread-eagled the field with a convincing 7 point victory as she returned a great 35 points.
Ball winners went to Margaret Hogan on 28 points and Kaye Jones with 27. The first round of the Dixon Physiotherapy 36 Hole Members Club Foursomes Championships will be played on Sunday.
