Considering the present state of the greens, the Frederickton Match Committee were able to attract a good field of 70 plus players, on Sunday March 12 Players enjoyed clear weather, a hearty lunch and cool refreshments whilst awaiting the last group of the day to return scores.
Everyone knew James Benson was in the last group and fully expected this current club champion to have a big say in the day’s results.
Brad Graham and Dick Myhill had already posted 73 each, then along came James with another 73. A 3 way play-off saw a worthy winner in Brad Graham, collecting the A Grade Gross, along with his name on the honour board. Dick Myhill was all smiles due to his best round ever, 73/61 to claim the A Grade Nett.
B Grade winner was Don Keast 78 Gross. Dave Knox returned 78/64 to take the B Grade Nett. Results for these boys were decided on a count-back. Good scores for the less than ideal condition of the greens.
C GRADE winner was Nathan Smith 82 Gross. Deputy Mayor, Ashley Williams claimed the Nett with a 58.
