The members of the Kempsey Golf Club last Saturday played in the 20-21 Gold Medal Playoff with winners from the past 12 months competing for the Gold medal on the day.
The day was the 2021 George Hill 18 hole Medley Single Stroke event for the monthly medals in each grade for November 2021.
A big thank you goes to George for his sponsorship of the day and again to Graeme and his staff and all the volunteers for your work during the week to have the course in tip top condition for this major event of the year.
At the end of the day's play the three players who claimed the gold medals were Dane Grabbe in the 'A' grade, Josh Swan claimed the 'B' grade title while John Wright took out the 'C' gold medal.
Congratulations goes to all three players and to everyone for playing during the year.
Another highlight of the day's play was the scoring of two hole in one's at the par 3 3rd hole on Saturday.
The 130mt short par 3 played very easy for two players on Saturday.
Firstly it was Dane Grabbe who got the ace and then it was Shane Holten, not too many groups behind, who also scored the ace on the 3rd hole.
Congratulations to both players on your wonderful tee shots.
On Saturday there was a field of 88 players for the Stroke event with visitors from Frederickton, Tuggerah Lakes, Thurgoona, Nambucca Heads, Massey Park and SWR golf clubs.
The winner in the top grade this week was Stuart Phillips with a very good net score of 63 while Nathan Moran was runner up with a net 69.
