A full house of forty golfers travelled to Bonalba, 38 warblers and 2 guests John Cross and David Brown. We found the course in reasonable condition for this time of year and playing on a warm sunny day. Today was a Stableford  competition Sponsored by Members Chris and Margaret Hoare.

   There were two divisions today and winning Div 1 with a brilliant score of 40pts was our Immediate Past Captain Bob Edwards and will now be playing off a new handicap of 7.8  it was great to see Bob and Rosemary back after a lengthy stay in the UK. In second place came Steve Smith with 35pts and winning 3rd place on countback with 32pts was David Corcoran. Div 2  saw our El Presidente Arthur Sullivan back to form with an impressive 38pts, second came Malcolm Robinson with 32pts winning on countback from David Edwards also with 32pts.

   There were three nearest the pins on holes 4, 8 and 14 and was won by Bob Edwards, Michael Morley and David Brown respectively. A longest Ladies drive was put up on hole 17 where Sylvia Mortensen boomed the golf ball down the hill. There were two two's won by our top scorers in Div 1 Bob and Steve.

   Five matches were contested today our defending Singles champion David Knight was well beaten by John Daniels 4 & 2, Steve Smith beat Vicky Loeber 1 up, Steve Davies beat Chris Williamson also 1 up and Chris Hoare beat Jorgen Mortensen 6 & 5. One Doubles match saw Sheila Dindar and Fred Cooley beat Andy Loeber and Paddy Kenmore in a very close matching ending on a sudden death fourth hole putt off. Winning the football card and back after a three months lay with a broken foot was the popular Stafford Pemberton with Charlton. Congratulationd to all our winners and to Chris and Margaret for their sponsorship with some great prizes.
