A smaller field than normal participated in the May Monthly Medal event sponsored by Keith Simmons Engineering at the Young Golf Club over the weekend. The three medal winners on handicap also won the Elite scratch event. The winners for each grade were A-grade – Bill Oliver, B-grade – John Hobson and C-grade – Jake Norton.

Wednesday night the Young Golf Club will hold its Annual General Meeting. The meeting will be held in the Gleaneagles function centre from 6 pm. There will be the election of office bearers for the next period leading up to the finalisation of the amalgamation of Young Golf Club and Young Services Club. When the amalgamation takes place the Young Golf Club will still need to function as an individual entity with much of the day to day responsibility to remain with the Young Golf Club.

“It would be just great to see this meeting well attended as was the meeting held to discuss the amalgamation,” Young Golf Club’s Bill Kearney said.

Mr Kearney said the incoming committee will need the support of all the members of the Young Golf Club.

Young Golf Club held the Veterans Open tournament last Tuesday with 49 players participating.

“We acknowledge the sponsorship by the Telstra Shop Young, Young Tyrepower, Fred O'Reilly's Printing and Ray White Real Estate,” Mr Kearney said.

“Thanks to Jan and Greg Broderick, Brian Page, Betty Stanton, Mary Kearney and Penny Greaves for their contribution.”

Mr Kearney said the club had visitors from, Kiama, Canowindra, Cowra, Junee, Temora, The Rock, Wagga Wagga City and Cloverleigh.

Next Saturday Young Golf Club will be holding a single stableford  – Powerplay event. Details on the event are available from the pro-shop. The event will be sponsored by Mark Flanders and Flanders Eye Q.

“The ladies are holding their Open Tournament over the next weekend and we hope they have a successful event,” Mr Kearney said.
