Rodney powers home

IN THE first round of the Yarrowford Shield, three golfers, who have been fairly quiet so far, made a welcome return to good form.

The best of the trio was Rodney Pow whose net 62 was a mixture of power and precision, flavoured with a pinch of good fortune.


1, R. Pow nett 62; 2, L. McAllister 65; 3, N. Roxburgh 65; 4, J. Rae 66.

Twos: There were two twos at the nominated holes (7th and 15th) and they came from Rodney and Les.

This week’s competition is the Border Safeguard Quaich.


Playing for the penultimate monthly medal, with a place up for grabs to play for the gold medal, a large turnout of ladies took to The Hill. Having been one of the most consistent performers of the season, Marjorie Rae finally struck the jackpot, carding one of her best rounds with a faultless 82 (18) 64 to win the silver.

In the bronze division, it was June Craig who triumphed with one of her best rounds of the season, 90 (23) 67. Jen Robertson was the only winner of the twos.

The ladies would like to thank Heatherlie Garage for sponsorship of the medal.

With the end of the season fast approaching, the ladies played out their last Thursday night 18 holes with a Stableford.

Adding to her tremendous run of wins, it was new member Jen Robertson who took the honours again, returning 37 points on a difficult scoring night due to wind and rain.
