On the first Saturday in October and the 2021 long weekend the members at the Kempsey Golf Club were out in force for the staging of the 2021 Coastline Credit Union 18 hole Single Stroke event for the monthly medals in each grade.
The day was the last chance for the members to claim a medal for the 2020-21 season before the Gold Medal playoff in November.
With a good field of 120 players hitting off the team from the Credit Union were very happy with such a large turnout on a very nice day for golf.
Again all the players were out about for their exercise and also doing the right thing by obeying the rules of the COVID-19 in and around the club.
With such a large field there were visitors to the club from Frederickton, SWR, Massey Park, Crescent Head, Nambucca Heads & Kooindah Waters golf clubs.
Claiming his very first monthly medal in the top was up and coming junior Carlin Dunbar-Rudd with a very fine net score of 67.
In the 'B' grade on Saturday the winner was Rod Kinnear who after a run of outs for some time played very well for his net score of 68 for the medal.
Athol Davis played very well in the 'C', grade to claim his first medal also with a net score of 7 under par 65.
All three players will now enter next month's playoff for the gold medal to be held on Saturday November 6th.
The three players who came very close to winning but had to take home the runner up prize on the day were Michael Flanders in 'A' with a net 67 and David Munday in the 'B' grade with a net 68 while in 'C' grade Bert Quinlan with his net score of 66 was the runner up player.
On the day there was a Ladies event and the winner was Marie Adams with a net 70 while Justine Higgins, who continues to improve her game, was the runner up with a net 71.
Pam Bruce played very well to win the Gross event with an 89. Taking out the 'A' grade gross event on the day was Andrew Kirkman with a 3 under par round of 69 after a chip in Eagle 3 on the par 5 10th hole.
Rod Kinnear claimed the 'B' grade with 84 and Athol Davis won the 'C' grade with 88. Claiming the ntp's at the 3rd hole on Saturday were Dempsey Donovan 'A', Ben Pierpoint 'B' & Pat Preston 'C'.
On the 8th hole the winners were Flanders 'A', Josh Swan 'B', Graeme Hall 'C'.

Saturday at the club is a very special day for the club with the staging of the 2021 Dyet Family Memorial Golf Day.
The day is to remember 3 very popular past members of the club who were always there to help out with anything going on at the club.
