This Saturday’s game was a stroke event for the Men’s Monthly Medal.

41 players turned up on a fine morning with James Reardon coming out on top with a score of a net 68 off a 22 handicap 2 strokes clear of the field. James won this month’s medal and was also winner of the `B` grade division. Well played.

Second home was Wayne Minns with a nett 70 off a 17 handicap. Third was Alan Schatzman also on a nett 70 off his 22 handicap.

Chad Pollard won the `C` grade division with a nett of 71 off a 24 handicap.

Rob Jerman won the `A` grade division with a nett 71 off an 11 handicap.

Once again no one managed to win the Golf Exchange prize by getting the ball into the circle around the flag on the 11th hole. A couple of people had the ball run right by the flag that looked great from the tee only to be let down when they got to the green. This has been going a long time, surely someone has to win it soon!

No one even hit the 3rd green.

And the marker for the 16th went walkabout.

Ball rundown today was to 75 with 14 players each receiving a ball.

Nearest the pins were:

3rd __; 

10th   B. Snelgrove; 

11th __; 

14th  W. Minns; 

16th __.

This weeks raffle winners were: C. Chessell; S. Martin; B. Snelgrove; T. London.

CALLALA BOYS: Tuesday's winning team Barry Jarman and Colin Chessell with club captain Graham Lewington (centre).

A beautiful morning at Callala saw a good field of 40 players turned out today for a fun team event, a 2 person Ambrose. 20 teams of mixed handicappers had people all over the place deciding which ball to hit the next shot from. As usual when one person hit a good shot so did his playing partner or both would hit a bad shot. Hardly ever seem to get it right.

Barry Jarman and Colin Chessell managed to get it right though and stormed home with a score of 58.750 off a 9.250 handicap. Great game guys, well played. Second team home were William George and William Snelgrove with a 61 off an 8 handicap. Third today was the team of Terry London and Michael Inness with a 61.50 off a 9.50 handicap.

A couple of great shots earned club captain Graham Lewington and his playing partner Neil Sparks an eagle on the par 4 16th hole and a box of balls each!!

Ball rundown went to 67.50 with 9 teams all receiving a ball each.

Nearest the pin winners were:

3rd      B. Jarman/ C. Chessell.
