JUNIOR golfer, Billy Webb, produced one of his better rounds to win the monthly medal stroke event last Saturday. His front nine was very consistent but a one over par 37 on the back nine closed out the competition after a score of 83 off the stick for nett 62 was returned.
Not to be outdone, Keith Allen also produced one of his best rounds, 86 gross for nett 63 to claim runner-up. A costly 7 on the 10th hole was not very helpful for Keith. Mark Hendry had the best gross score of 75 on the day and best putting went to the winner, Billy Webb, 26 for the round.
Pin shots went to Aaron Simmers at 3, Graham Tonkin at 12 and Terry Roser at 17. Pro-pins were claimed by Bill Pyne at 1/10, Matt Waterworth at 5/14 and Trevor Ludlow at 9/18.
Nikki Waterworth won the ladies medal and the best ladies gross score, 90 off the stick for nett 62. Annelle Batterham collected runner-up prize with nett 73. Rachel Hendry had least number of putts, 28 for the round.
Lyn Ludlow claimed the pin shot at 3 and Nikki Waterworth had best approach at 17.

WELL who wouldn’t want to be a bowler?
Ideal conditions on well prepared greens for both the Ladies Gala on Wednesday and social bowls on Saturday.
First to Wednesday’s Gala Day as teams from Warwick, Southern Cross, Tenterfield, Texas, Tannymorel and Stanthorpe arrived to a very cold welcome which soon became a great winters day.
Some spectacular bowling took place over both games with the eventual winners being Warwick with Tenterfield a close second. The multi draw raffle during afternoon tea say many happy winners.
On Saturday, again in ideal spring conditions, there was a game of triples and a game of 3 bowl pairs.
Winning the triples was the team of Val White, Pat Cooke and the birthday boy Remo Zeppa over Brian Brown, Rocky Thompson and Pat Cooke (17/13).
In the pairs, Jeff Aldridge and Mary Zeppa just got up against John Cooke and Nev Grace (20/17) hard to get 4 shots with 1 bowl hey John.
Raffle winners were John Cooke and the crippled President Justin.
Birthday wishes to both
Ernie Jones and Remo Zeppa.
