Sunday 25th March what a warm day we had after the rainy Friday & Saturday. The course was quite damp in places, but the greens were fantastic. The Hudson Donnelly 2BBB Mixed Day sponsored by Richmond Dairies was a great success with 32 players competing for the trophy and the scores were very close. Winners Trevor & Kay Wood finished with 44 points from John & Allysen Weaver who had 43. Terry & Julie Llewellyn came in 2nd Runner Up with 42 points. NTP’s on the 17th were won by Jackie Bratti and John Weaver. Balls went to 37 points.
Wednesday 21st March and it looked like there was rain coming on the horizon, but it was around only for a very short stay. The cooler and breezier day was very enjoyable rather than what we have been having over the past few humid weeks. There was a field of 30 to play the 2 Person Ambrose Sponsored by Country IT. Lorraine Pratt & Linda Dean thought they had the winning score with 71.75, until Reinie Kinsley and Judith McHugh came in. Reinie and Judith were in the last group of the day and scooped the win with a great 68.5. Second Runners Up were Loretta Transton and Nora Viel with 73.5.
