The week began at the Millicent Golf Club with the coring of the Greens, however this procedure was interrupted by the rain and only the front nine holes was available to play on Wednesday and Thursday.
Some of the Ladies arrived at the Club on Wednesday, very optimistic, but due to the persistent light rain, they opted not to play. The Competition on Wednesday 24th October will be Stroke round, and the Monthly Medal final, the Monthly Medallists for the year playing off for the title.
14 Men played on Thursday and played the front nine twice. Trevor Hutchesson scored 20 points to win the Nine Hole Competition from Terry Chant on 19 points. Terry Chant was the most consistent on the day, scoring 37 points to win the 18 hole Competition, runner up was Jamie Allen who scored 35 points.
On Saturday there were 26 men and 6 ladies who played a Stableford Competition.
Ben Young returned to the Golf Course after an extended break, honouring his football umpiring commitments, and submitted the best score of the day with 41 points to convincingly win the B Grade from Chris Bailey on 36 points and Junior golfer, Liam Chant on 35 points.
Phil Hunter won the countback from Graham Warren, both on 37 points, to win the A Grade, and Ben Golding was in third place with 35 points.
Nearest to Pin winners were Paul Whitford on the 3rd and 17th, Trevor Atkinson on the 5th and Matt Warren on the 13th.
Nearest to the Pin for two on the 18th Hole for the A Grade was Ian Greenwood and no one from the B Grade hit the green for two on the 9th Hole.
Ian Greenwood was the only player to have a birdie on the Par 3 holes and he was awarded four golf balls.
In the Ladies Competition, it was Sue Agnew with 32 points, who had a win over Val Williams with 31 points.
