“Golf Exchange” is offering $425 for a great shot. Come and play with us next Saturday and demonstrate how good a golfer you are, or just how lucky you are by landing the ball in the enlarged circle of the “Golf Exchange” sponsored Callala 11th hole. When we tell Gary that no one has been good enough to win his money, he just shakes his head in disbelief.
Today Harold Reynolds almost got to claim the big bucks at the Golf Exchange 11th hole with his tee shot landing inside the circle very close to the hole but unfortunately for Harold the ball then continued its journey through the circle and out the other side. Good try Harold!
With the wind today trying its best to blow everyone off the course, it was hard going for the good field of keen players all competing for the top stableford points on offer in today’s game.
Rob Ash was the most consistent and talented golfer, winning by a massive one point for his 38 stableford points. Well done Rob!
Second and third place was determined by the count back with both John Dobson and Barry Jarman coming home with 37 stableford points.
Count Back result, John Dobson came over the line in second spot with Barry being relegated to third on the podium. Congratulations to both John and Barry on an excellent round of golf under very difficult conditions.

WWPSWC AT SUSSEX INLET
There were eleven of us playing down at the Sussex course on a very cold, windy Saturday morning, making golf quite uncomfortable.
But after saying this there were a couple of our members seeming to thrive on this type of weather. Benjo was one of them coming in with 18points for the nine holes. Then of course there was the Mayor out for his usual Saturday walk and a talk with his mates, he managed to come in second with 17 points.
Next was Cyrano with 16 points on a countback from Ned, Kiwi and Skeeter. The Mars Bar went to the Boy Wonder, I was asked not to have his score for the game published. Hank won the nearest the pin on the 7th and Benjo won the Drive and Putt on the 9th.
The wind had dried the Sussex course out considerably, both the fairways and the greens.
After the game we had our usual bacon and egg rolls cooked to perfection by Skeeter and his offsider Kiwi. Thanks to the boy Wonder for sending me this copy. The raffle was won by Skeeter.
Next week’s game is at Vincentia please be there to tee off by 8am.
