Nowra Golf

This week’s golf has been decimated by the relentless summer heat. Golf games on Tuesday and Wednesday have been cancelled. Only a brave few on Saturday ventured out to play the scheduled 2 Person Ambrose.   Peter Russell teamed up with Bradley Young to bring home a respectable 57 and ¾ for the win. Paul Maiolo and Wayne Herbert made second with their 58 nett and Stephen Rice and Pete Calvert held onto third with a 62 nett. Balls ran out at 64 nett. The Singles winner was Bob Brown with 32 pts.

The NTP’s at the 4th went to Peter Russell, the 8th to Lindsey Jones, Brett Trenerry was good for the 12th and Sean O’Donovan was closest at the 16th. Long drives in grade order went to Peter Russell, Col Darley and Ted Wright.

Members please remember the Club AGM on the last Tuesday of this month. This will be a unique meeting as we go forward into uncharted waters. Our golfing future hopefully will remain in our own control, but our financial future will be in a more stable situation under the banner of The Bomaderry Bowling Club.
