Sunday was the 4th round of the Club Championships, and it was a tightly contested affair. Nat Foster, the eventual winner and our Club Champion for 2018, was running behind Brent Bones at the half way mark of the last round. The last 9 holes by Nat were steady, whereas Bones had a few bad holes. Such is golf. Nat’s score of 288 ended up 7 strokes clear. Mark Allen won the Vet’s (over 60) with 321. B Grade went to Sam Gray (342) from Peter Bamford (344) who will be ruing a lost ball on the final hole. Peter, however, won the B Grade Nett off a handicap of 14 OCB from Ian Fitzgerald (16). A Grade Nett was awarded to Adan Gronlund (12) with 273. John Still won C Grade by a clear 8 shots over Bob Montgomery.
