Parkland Golf Report
Most golfers go through the golfing doldrums for long periods of time.
This has been an experience for some time for Lyn Fraser. However a late decision to play in Saturday’s event was the turning point of her game. Lyn carded a 74-28-46 to shoot 18 shots better from her previous round and take the B-grade trophy. Her round included three chip-ins and one was of a birdie. Runner-up was Evelyn Cunningham with 85-31-54.
Heather Sleeth has played consistent golf of late and this was again the “norm” with a win in A-grade. Heather carded 73-19-54. With the second round of the Club Championship, Ray Falla shot 64-9-55 to win the men’s A-grade after a countback from Ray Coleman 66-11-55. Third went to Steve Piggott with 67-10-57. Michael Turnbull won B-grade with 67-14-53. Paul Mcinnes was runner-up with 69-14-55. Third went to Tom Haigh with 72-16-56. C-grade went to Kjel Johnsen on 84-30-54. Bob Smith was runner-up with 69-18-51. Mel Lusher was third with 72-20-52.
Ball winners were Dot Atkinson, Denise Hee, Mary Elliott, Murray Maxwell, Howard Teasdale, Peter Fawcett, Geoff Berry, Jason Mckenzie, David Kuiper, Chris Harmer, Gavin Connally, Lincoln D’augello and Mal Baker.

9th, Ray Coleman on the 1st while it was Scott Mclennan on the 18th for the eagles nest sponsored by Chapel Corner Tyres.
