Saturday saw the first round of the NJ Murray Trophy – Stableford played at Royal Yea GC. Conditions were foggy early with the sun finally appearing about noon. Winner and leader on the day was Phil Armstrong(21) with 34 points from second Kevin Coghlan(22) on CB from Russ Wealands(23) both on 33 points. Fourth on CB also was Brian Simmons(11) from Malcolm Bett(27) and Brian Priestley(25) with 31 points. There was no NTP on the 11th and Carl Maffei won the Club Award.
Congratulations again to Phil Armstrong who has taken on organisation of our Monthly Friday night golf/drinks. On the second Friday(last week) we had another successful night with Phil and his co-sort Steve arranging for a putting contest with 18 putting holes on our 6th, 9th, 17th and 10th greens. Some were mini-golf design but that made it all the more fun. We had over 30 attendees on the night who mostly stayed for the soup/dim sim meal.
Next Saturday sees the second and final round of the NJ Murray Trophy. Our 100 Year Celebrations also start on Saturday with the Dinner/Dance on at the Shire Hall at night. Members who plan to be at the High Tea on Sunday could they let Jan/Barb know so they can cater for the correct number.
