Men Last Satur­day’s Med­ley Sta­ble­ford was played in mild over­cast con­di­tions by a field of 56 play­ers on re­cently ren­o­vated greens. Richard Parker showed his lo­cal knowl­edge in his great win­ning score of 40 points. Jonah Men­zies took the run­ner-up po­si­tion with 39 points on a c/b from Chris Moor­head, also on 39, mov­ing Chris into third place. Elena Roy­lance has been play­ing con­sis­tently lately with Elena re­turn­ing 38 points and hus­band Marcus 36. The NTPs were all under 2 me­tres. The 2nd was won by vis­i­tor, Martin Tish­ler at 153cms. The 7th went to Hugh Saun­ders at 177cms, Greg Saul the 11th at 173cms and Wendy King hit a beauty on the 17th to 101cms. The pro-ball run­down went to 34 points on a c/b. Thurs­days Med­ley Sta­ble­ford saw Peter Hamil­ton and John Porter fight it out for the win, both card­ing 38 points. Peter came out the win­ner on a c/b push­ing John into the run­ner-up place. Paul Moore took the NTP on the 2nd at 330cms, Greg Saul the 7th at 263cms, John Ryan the 11th at 424 and Doug Hud­son the 17th with an ex­cel­lent shot to 45cms. To win a pro-ball you had to play to your hand­i­cap or bet­ter. An­other good field turned up for Wed­nes­day af­ter­noons 9 Hole Skins game. Terry Mitchell came out on top with 4 skins, in­clud­ing two three point­ers and a four pointer. Don Skaines and Phil Kil­lian both claimed 4 point­ers as well. Nice chip-in Killer! This com­ing Satur­days event is a 4BBB Sta­ble­ford spon­sored by Coop­ers. The fi­nal of the Tooheys Shield is on Sun­day 26th at Iluka in con­junc­tion with their Open week­end. See Cap­tain Ge­off to nom­i­nate. — Phil McGuire Women Due to green ren­o­va­tions dur­ing last week Ma­clean Ladies played an 18 Hole “Mul­li­gans” game with no putting which seemed pop­u­lar with many play­ers. It seems that get­ting to the green is not a prob­lem for most but those last few shots to get that ball in the hole seem to add up. Our Divi­sion 1 win­ner was Chris Timbs. Great to see Chris in the win­ner’s cir­cle and the run­ner-up was Kim Eck­er­s­ley who is on hol­i­days and joined us for the day. Well done Kim it was great to have you in the field. Divi­sion 2 win­ner was Eleane Roy­lance who has been in great form and well de­served with the run­ner-up be­ing the very con­sis­tent Edith Pid­ding­ton. NTP’s went to Div 1 Chris Picton Div 2 Mary Wise­man and Club Balls went to K Ryan, M Kil­lian, N Com­mer­ford, C Parker, B Ens­bey, D Moore & V Ge­orge. Last week 10 of our ladies trav­elled to By­ron Bay and cer­tainly flew the Ma­clean flag high with Chris Timbs, San­dra Youl­ten, Eleane Roy­lance, Kylie Ryan, Liama Hunter & Mau­reen Kil­lian and Henny Taranto all tak­ing home major prizes and the oth­ers balls and tro­phies so con­grat­u­la­tions to all play­ers. Some girls also went to the an­nual Jug tour­na­ment in Ar­mi­dale, played well and did Ma­clean proud so well done Chrissy, Helen & Chris. As it is get­ting to­wards the end of the golf­ing cal­en­dar this weeks event is also a fun day play­ing a Flag game which will be fur­ther ex­plained by Cap­tain Helen on Wed­nes­day so good luck ev­ery­one the greens should prove in­ter­est­ing af­ter the ren­o­va­tions. Our spon­sor for the day is Edith Pid­ding­ton so play hard. — Cathy Ayres
