The Macleay Valley last weekend saw a number of sporting events cancelled due to the rain during the week and into the weekend, however the Kempsey Golf Club did go ahead with the 18 hole single Stableford event with 19 hardy golfers hitting off.
With the course playing very heavy and the showers continuing just about all day there was just the 11 players who went to the end.
Playing some outstanding golf in the heavy conditions Brody Clarke, the best lefty in the club, had a round of 37 points to claim the victory on the day.
Playing in the morning wave Adam Hudson with 33 points was the runner up.
In the ball competition on the day the winners were Clarke, Hudson, Brad Dyet, Caleb Foran, Zachary Pritchard & Paul Hollis and they can collect the balls from the pro shop at the club anytime along with any unclaimed vouchers from the event.
The ntp's on Saturday were won by Sando Abigail on the 3rd, 8th, 11th holes along with Brett Hutley on the 3rd and Nancy McNamara 3rd and Peter Livermore on the 16th hole and all winners can collect the vouchers from the pro shop at the club.
Hopefully the rain will ease enough on Saturday for the club to hold the 2021 Macleay Argus Open 18 hole Medley 2ball Aggregate Stableford and Individual event with the first players hitting off from 7am.
