The inaugural Life Members’ Summer Classic will be played on the Australia Day weekend, January 26 and 27.

This is a 36 hole stableford event in teams of four, with best three scores to count.

Entry forms are in the Pro Shop and will be accepted until Wednesday, January 23, so get your team organised for what will be a great weekend.

On Saturday the Stubbs Wallace Accountants Monthly Medal was played, with an excellent field of 124.

Men’s medal winner with net 67 was Peter Oddy and ladies’ winner, also with net 67, was Kaye Rourke who is getting reward for her hard work on the golf course.

There were four grades for the big field. A grade was won by Daniel Payne with a three over par 75, net 72, on countback from Tom O’Brien. Oddy won B grade from Simon Tilders net 69, C grade winner was Ben Irwin on net 67 by two shots from Paul Docherty, and Rourke won C grade on countback from Rob Armytage.

On Wednesday there was another good field with three grades. Steve Bindon had a super sub-par round of 70 to record 39 points and win A grade by a shot from Carlos Gomez, Dan Wade won B grade with 41 by a shot from Greg Summers, and Cory Liefting had a day out with 44 points to win C grade from Lee Pattinson on 39.

Tomorrow is the coveted Borella Cup, giving the recipient the opportunity to have a refreshment at the expense of another member on every competition day for three months.

The Joker’s Wild jackpot tonight is $4300. Tickets for the meat raffles and Joker’s Wild are on sale from 6pm, with draws from 7.30pm. The Indian Night is also on tonight, but bookings for this event have closed.
