MEMBERS had an away match versus Windwhistle, so consequently the Thursday competition was a self-entry, single division Stableford and there were 51 entrants.

There was heavy cloud all around the course and a brisk breeze that couldn’t seem to make its mind up which way to blow so conditions were a little tricky.

However, this didn’t seem to affect the scoring to any great degree and, while no one managed 40 points, there were a number of scores in the high 30s.

Chris Roberts was the winner with 38 points, two points clear of runner-up John Laramy. Mike McGrady took third after countback and he achieved a gross eagle on the par five third.


1 Chris Roberts (20) 38 points, 2 John Laramy (23) 37, 3 (acb) Mike McGrady (16) 36, 4 John Sansom (17) 36, 5 Dave Buckland (21) 35.

* Roberts, Laramy and McGrady reveived a one-shot handicap cut.

* The ladies’ invitation day was postponed because of the threat of high winds and torrential rain. The event has been rescheduled for Tuesday, October 7.
