The conditions at the Kempsey Golf Club last Saturday were very much the same as the week before a very windy day but no rain.
With these conditions on the day and the course again playing long due to the wet weather from days before the players did find the scoring very hard.
The day was the 2021 Dick Hilliard Memorial and with a field of 62 players every one did enjoy themselves.
The 18 hole Medley Single Stableford event saw some good scores across the 3 grades.
A return to form on the day saw Graeme Dyet take out the 'A' grade after some good play in the windy conditions with a very good round of 37 points to comfortably win with veteran Graham Martin the runner up player on the day with 35 points on a countback.
In the 'B' grade on Saturday the winner was Chris Edmonds with a very good round of 41 points and I'm sure he will be checking his handicap before hitting off tomorrow.
With a score of 36 points on a countback Neville Jackson was the runner up player.
After a win two weeks ago and another win last week Josh Swan made it 3 weeks in a row in the 'C' grade and on Saturday had a score of 36 points for his victory.
Wayne (birdseed) Simmons returned to the winners circle with a runner up spot on Saturday with his score of 34 points.
