On Saturday both the men and the ladies played a stroke round for the November monthly medal. Despite unsettled weather being forecast conditions were very good and players were wishing they had packed their sunscreen in their golf bags.
The lady’s winner was Gail Leigh (11) with nett 75 followed by Jody Doran (12) with nett 77. The men’s winner was Ross Ansell (15) with nett 71 and the runner up was Travers Stow (18) with nett 73. The nearest the pins were won by Keith Atwell, Gail Leigh, Paul Martin and Adam Littlejohn who also won the golden shot. The putting was won by Travers Stow with 25 putts. Any player who scores a birdie or has a gobbler during competition play are reminded to add their name to the list in the club rooms.
Last Thursday a number of ladies played a social game at Mansfield Golf Club and enjoyed the course and the camaraderie.
