After a lull in playing due to the Christmas/New year break we were all back on deck yesterday.
The winner was Carson Bennett from runner-up Charlie Bennett – the old father and son trick – and in 3rd place was Roy Sthruthers.
Hacker of the day went to Graeme Sthruthers. Back at the Bermagui Hotel where we had snacks supplied by the new publican we held our presentations and raffles with the lucky player draw going to Roy Sthruthers and badge draw being Graeme Sthruthers.
The Meat tray went to Paul Armstrong, a visitor, and the Veggie tray winner was Mal LeComte and the Pizza Voucher was Andrew Whittaker and the bottles of wine were won by Graeme Sthruthers and Yvonne Bennett.
Thanks again to our sponsors the Bermagui Beach Hotel, Bermagui Pizza, Triple 7, and Needs Butchery.
Golfers of any standard welcome each Sunday at the Bermagui Golf Course with the hit-off time being 9am at the Club.
