The 2017 South Street Mufflers Golf Day was held last Saturday at the Kempsey Golf Club with a good field of 73 players hitting off on a day just right for golf. In the field were visitors from Frederickton, SWR, Massey Park and Nambucca Heads golf clubs. A big thank you goes to Ross for his continued support and we all look forward to next year’s event. 

All players were playing in the August monthly medals in the 18 hole stroke event on Saturday and the scores were again very good with a number of players recording scores under par.

Former school teacher Bob Kingdon was the 'B' grade winner of the medal for August with a very good score of a 5 under par net score of 67. The runner up was Paul Hollis with a net 69 after his morning round. With a score of 84 Kingdon also won the gross in the 'B' grade. 

In the 'C' grade on Saturday the medal winner with a fantastic score of net 64 was Richard McLellan who has just returned to golf at the club. With a net 69 Peter Herivel was the runner up. Alexander Parsons was the gross winner with a round of 93.
