The 2016 Foursomes Champions are Annette Thomas and Eileen Wilson. The championship was played over 54 holes two rounds of 27 holes. On the 27th of July, the conditions for round 1 were very heavy and quite chilly, and competition was close with Julie and Joyce only a few strokes behind Annette and Eileen (The soup from Ros was very much appreciated).
Round 2 was postponed for a week due to the wet conditions, and the 10th of August was perfect conditions for golf and all players enjoyed the day out. Dare I say the challenge was not only of foursomes (which is hit for hit with your partner), but also 27 holes!
Annette and Eileen finished the day in front again, taking out the championship, and the runners up were Julie and Joyce, followed by Helen Kemper and Rhonda.
Our 5th monthly medal and putting was played last week with two grades, and due to programme changes this was also a PAR event and it was wonderful to see President “I Detest Par” playing. The monthly medal winner with a Nett of 70 was Eileen; the Putting medal went to Faye with a nice 29 putts, and on a count back to Helen Kemper. The daily winners from the Par event were Eileen, in A grade with +1, and Margie Sharpe, in B grade with +1 (an inspiration to all). Our 6th monthly medal was played on August 24 and the NSW 4BBB Vs Stableford will be next Wednesday August 31.
