The westerlies are playing havoc with golf at Nowra Golf Club. OK for some when the good drive is on line, makes for easy scoring.
Not good for the course though. As the track is as dry as chips. At least all the leaves are being blown away.
The Vets on Tuesday had their fair share of the wind to play the Irish Stableford. The best score for the blokes was returned by Reg Klein who won with 74 pts.
The Jamberoo Joker, Ian Unsworth ventured down the mountain to take the r/u prize with his 73 pts. Balls ran out at 57 pts on c/b.

The NTP’s at the 4th went to Paul Rynehart. The 8th to Graeme Wrightson and the 12th to Stephen Smith.

Callala Country Club Veterans
Hello everybody, a very cold and windy morning for our Monthly Mug (dedicated to Reggie Treneman). One player obviously thought it was hot as he was seen stripped down and swimming in the the dam on the 16th. He forgot the buggy brake and the wind blew it in (we won’t mention any names Colin C). Today was a back-up day for most, after a really windy day at Worrigee yesterday and the eventual winner was me, Graeme Weston with 64 nett (24 strokes better than yesterday) to take the lead in the Veterans Championship (it won't last long).
1st Place Graeme Weston Nett 64
2nd Place John Dobson 66
3rd Place Graham Mitchell 68
4th Place Colin Chessell 68 (great score off a 16 H/C in the wind & a swim)
