Despite a large contingent of members travelling to Sydney to contest the annual Droughtbusters weekend of golf, a good field contested the Sportspower Parkes 18- hole Stableford last Saturday.
Renowned local sporting identity Wayne Tucker proved too strong for the field as he returned a solid 39 points to edge out Brent Timmins on a countback. Tucker came home the final 9 holes in a great 3 under par off his 19 handicap to record 21 points, while Timmins was equally impressive with 20 points.
The 2017 ladies golfing season started last Wednesday. Tomorrow the ladies will play an 18-hole Stableford for the Denise Charlton’s trophy.
The club and golf professional Daniel Newton will be conducting coaching class- es for ladies and senior men under Golf NSW incentives to encourage more ladies and men to get into golf.
Tomorrow members will contest the Tel- escope Tyres & Batteries March Monthly Medal in A, B and C grades with local ac- countancy firm Peter Woods & Associates supplying the trophies in the Handicap Sections. Griffins Leading Edge is spon- soring the putting competition, which will be played in conjunction.
