Sunday 11th June the North Coast Truck Drivers Inc. Charity Golf game to be
held at Casino Golf Club had to be cancelled due to the very wet weather
which of course was a big disappointment to us all. Unfortunately we can’t
do anything about the weather.
Due to the constant rain we have had over the past 2 weeks and the course being closed for the major part of this time. The course was finally opened to the ladies Wednesday 21st who wanted to walk. THEN at the last minute after further inspection the course was open to carts as well; with strict instructions as to where carts could go, because the course was still very wet in lots of places, and mowers could not get on the fairways to mow. AND the same conditions will apply on Friday.
Friday 9th June with a field of 32 players the sponsor of the day was NRMA, thank you to Greg Cowan, Selena and the crew for the great trophies. The winners were all close with their scores today, Nora Viel (18) finished on 74 nett in A Grade from Runner Up Louise Formaggin (19) who had 76 nett. B Grade winner Ann Innes (32) had 73 nett in front of Runner Up Heather McAndrew (30) with 74 nett. C Grade was won by Therese Schier (44) with 72 nett from Lorraine Pratt (43) on 76 nett.
Due to the rain that came down in bucket loads, the field was reduced to 34, and as a consequence of this the Ted Wilson Joinery Trophy has been rescheduled to Saturday 17th in conjunction with the Mick O’Neill sponsored day. The winner of the day today was Noel Kinsley (14) with 32 points on a c/b from Nathan Chadderton (20). The ball rundown went to 28 on a c/b. There are 31 balls in the Turkeys Nest and it wasn’t won.
Wednesday 7th June there was a field of 34 ladies to play for the South Casino Pharmacy trophies. The game was the 1st round of the Womens Golf Casino Championships held over 3 consecutive stroke rounds. Some players have started off their campaign with great scores and others not so good. A Grade Winner of the day was Jackie Bratti (3) with a nett 75 on a c/b from Runner Up Louise Formaggin (20).
