Steve Winerton and Simon Oakes took out the Rolfe/McKnight FourBall event at the Young Golf Club on Saturday. The pair took out the cup from Grant Harding and Stuart Norton. The handicap winners for the event were Kel Brodbeck and Michael Slater with Gavin Marshall and Mark McCormick the runners-up. The individual winner on Saturday was Gavin Marshall. Thanks to Shaun and Matt for their contribution towards the event.

Hole-in-one for O’Brien 

Darren O'Brien celebrated his hole-in-one on the 17th on Wednesday in the usual manner. Congratulations Darren.

Next Saturday

Next Saturday one of the clubs premier events is being held, namely the Par Three Open Tournament. Sponsors for the event are Community Broking Network and Richard Mellish Insurance Services. This is a unique event and presents 18 opportunities to score a hole-in-one in a scheduled competition. There will be scratch and handicap events for the men and the ladies so we are anxious for a big field to play.

On the Friday before – this Friday – Stuart Norton is holding his open Ambrose fund raiser for charity. Open to all, details from Norton Real Estate or the Pro-shop.

Veterans’ Week of Golf
