A blustery, and rain threatening day, greeted the early Saturday morning golfers to contest the ProKonnect Day Spa Stableford event. Our thanks go out to Sammi for sponsoring this event. There were 51 golfers brave enough to have a hit.
There were only four golfers to equal or better the stableford par score, with the Ward boys Ian and James battling out for first prize with Ian getting a rare win over James with a 41 point haul beating James by 3.
Anthony Riach had a 37 point haul with Peter Bristol on 36. Anthony was the only player to score in the 70’s with a 75 on the day then 5 back to James Ward and Blake Smith on 80.
In the ladies’ event Cath Coates survived a countback to win with 32 points. Cath has settled into the Parkes course since arriving from Sydney and no doubt will enjoy the updated course when it arrives.
Some of the older gents played well in the wind and cold with Reg Davison and Graham Cooke firing solid 34s and John Pearce, Rod Luyt and Tom Delmenico carding 33s.
