Solid scoring was certainly the order of the day that also saw members contesting the Terry Sheridan Memorial Trophy.
Three generations of the Sheridan fam- ily descend on the Golf Club annually to remember their beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, the late Terry Sheridan. The family matriarch, Kim Sheridan thanked the club for allow- ing them the privilege of honouring Terry, prior to announcing Lindsay Elliott as this year’s recipient of the major award after he returned a solid 41 points.
Ball winners on the day went to 40 Dave Whitfield, 39 Col Barker and Tony “Scrub- ba” Evans, 38 Ian Hendry, 37 Brian L. Hogan, Robert Hey and Jake Hodge, 36 Charlie Allen, Wayne Tucker, Tim Burke, Ron Hetherington and Matt Lawryk and surviving the countback on 35 points was Tom Casey.
Last Saturday the ladies contested an 18 hole 4Ball versus Par event, which also acted as the qualifying round of the Golf NSW/Keno NSW 4Ball Handicap Championship.
Leading home the field were sisters Kaye Jones and Lynne Guise recording a solid and impressive +8 score line to run out comfortable 5 shot victors. Runners up were the Judy McCabe and Leone Steven- son pairing on +3 with Denise Charlton and Lesley Fisher in the minor placing on +2, just 1 shot ahead of Sue Holman and Anita Medcalf.
Nearest the pin awards: Colleen Flynn – Lyn Rogan 1st hole; Judy McCabe -Parkes Pharmacy 4th hole; Cathy Kelly – Telescope Tyres & Batteries 6th hole; Anita Medcalf and Margaret Hogan – Parkes Services Club 11th hole and the Railway Hotel 15th hole respectively.
