Brody Clarke’s front nine leads to the win

The weather proved to be the winner last Saturday for the staging of the 2017 Peter Steffensen 18 hole single Stableford event which saw players from all over the Macleay take part on the day. Peter who has been a long time member and sponsor of this event was thanked on the day by all the players and the club. 

With the morning conditions proving very good, the best score on the day was recorded by the first player out on the day. Taking out the 'A' grade with a very good score of 42 points was Brody Clarke who won with his one over par round. Brody's round included a 3 under par round on the first nine and then leaking a few shots on the way home. With a score of 40 points Peter Livermore who also,played in the morning was runner up to Clarke. 

After some good scores recently and not quite making the winners circle Bret Baldwin this week won the 'B' grade with a very good score of 41 points. Peter Hudson who had a round of 40 points was the runner up on a count back in the 'B' grade.

Club officials had to decide the winner of the 'C' grade on Saturday after two players had returned scores of 37 points at the end of the day. Getting the nod was John Harrison who beat the veteran David Tolman on the day.
