On Saturday, 1st July, the mens golf competition was the July Monthly Medal, sponsored by Walkers Ag-n-Vet. The field of 51, including two juniors.
The A-Grade Winner was Harry Callaghan with a 70 nett. His birdie on the 17th helped him post a score one shot better than his dad, Todd Callaghan who finished on 71 nett. Todd lost the family bragging rights when he double-bogied the 17 th hole.
The B-Grade provided the highlight for the day when Medal Winner Dave Tildsley finished with a nett 65. Memories of his indifferent form of late where washed away with a 38 front half and an impressive back half. Runner-up was Jeff Haley who was pleased with his 73.
The C-Grade was quiet with scores reflecting the difficult conditions. The winner was Jonathon Cutler who braved the early cold conditions to score 74 nett. Runner-up was Les Little with a 76 net, compiled with equal front and back scores.
The NTP’s went to: 9th H Cutler; 18th S Grallelis. The Pro Shop Super-pin went to Jacob Bernardi with a shot to 20cm, and was another to only just miss a hole-in-one.
The ball sweep went to 78 nett on count back. The visitors included Noel Baxter (Keysborough GC, Vic) and Angus Caldwell who is a Forbes member. Head Pro William Gunn had his second comp game at Forbes, finding the cold conditions difficult to handle.
This weekend we have another Individual Stroke event, sponsored by B&M Tooth. Hopefully better weather will entice a few more for the Stableford Medley on Sunday.
