The annual October Monthly Mug was played last Saturday in perfect conditions.

The course is in immaculate shape and well and truly ready for next week's club championships.

The tournament was sponsored by Les & Di Bennett from our Pro Shop. Thanks to them both for their valued support of our Club.

The day was won by Steve Hewitt who fired a net score of 62 to win by a solitary stroke.

Steve's scratch score of 78 was not B grade's best score however, that prize went to Tony Rock with a 77 off the stick.

The A grade nett winner was Les Bennett with a 65.

This was Les' first hit out for a long time and it was good to see him back on the course.

Big hitting Damian James was runner up one shot in arrears.

Nathan Bagnall shot yet another fine round to win the A grade scratch prize with a 70.

Nathan once again has gone to the top of the bookmakers favourites for another championship victory.

Mal Newman turned back the clock to win C grade with a mighty nett score of 63.

Runner up to Mal was Dan Robins with 65.

The C grade scratch winner's prize went to Terry Thompson for his 87 off the stick.

In B grade, it was Tony Rock who fired the best nett score (64) to win his grade. Gary Flanagan settled two shots further back in runner's up spot.

The Secret 9 prize pool for the week awarded golf balls to the best putters on the day. The winners were Jim Carey (24), Henry Morrow (26), Terry Thompson (26), and Steve Hewitt (26).

There was a great response to the long drive with a record number of members entering.

The winners were (A) Damian James, (B) Paul Bullock, (C) Tim Dunn, (Ladies) Kaitlin Van Zyl.

This Saturday's competition is the first round of the Club Championships. Entries are still being taking through the Pro Shop. The entry fee this year has been set at $110. See Les or give him a call to enter.

The traditional Calcutta starts on Friday night at 6pm. This night is always a good one filled with fun and entertainment. Don't miss it!
