Bombala golfers

Bombala lady golfers headed out on a dry course to play a Stableford for a Club Trophy on Wednesday.

"The scores weren't good, mainly because of the condition of the greens," golfer Dianne Ingram said.

"Each week we have a moan about the greens and how difficult it is without smoothing but this week we had the added problem of kangaroos being on the majority of the greens their tracks deflecting the ball around the pin.

"We are not sure what the attraction is of oiled greens though."

The winner by one point was Di Ingram with 29 points from Heather Brown and Gay Kennedy on 28 points. These ladies were the ball winners.

NTP on the 17th proved a very difficult hole and with no one winning Nearest To the Pin.

Gay Kennedy didn't let the greens affect her game having Gobblers on the 11th and the 13th.

The weekend should have been the Annual Open Tournament. It would have been the first time in over 60 years that the tournament could not be held.

Over the years visitors have played in all types of weather sometimes four seasons in a day. This year the weather was perfect attracting good fields on both days.

Saturday was a Par for Bombala Electrical Trophy.

The winner with the good score of + 4 was Wayne Elton. Balls were won by Wayne, Merv Douch + 2, Joel Cherry + 1, Ray Fermor and Chris Halligan Square.

Sunday there was a great roll up. We were pleased to welcome Machelle Grant from Jindabyne. Machelle always attends our tournament and celebrates her Birthday. Happy Birthday Machelle.

The event was a Stableford for a Club Trophy.

Ross Brown had a good day, even losing a ball, but still good enough to win with 39 points followed closely by Herbie Elliott 38 points and Joel Cherry 37 points.

Balls were won by Ross, Herbie, Joel, Di Ingram 36 points, Pepper Thompson 36 points, Korie Elton 35 points, Heather Brown 33 points and Ray Fermor 32 points.

NTP on the 17th. Oh the woes of footprint around the pin. Korie Elton held his breath watching his drive on the 17th heading for the flag only to see it stop in a footprint and inch from the hole. Bad luck Korie. But you did win a ball.

Match play: Singles Match play over the weekend.

Steve Tatham defeated Simon Stephen. Pepper Thompson defeated Brendan Weston.

4 Ball Match Play: Now that restrictions have eased Captain Joel will be doing the draw for the 4 Ball. Check the notice board.

Players please note: Although we are now allowed to play in fours we need you to put your name on the time sheets. We are still not allowed to be in the club to do a draw.

With the course drying out and to protect the fairways please drive carts outside the fairway lines and walk to your ball.
