On Fridays our 9-hole Single Stableford Comp was won by Simon Crosbie again. He improves faster than the handicapper can keep up, but we all know how the pursuit will end. This comp is a winner-takes-all with an entrance fee of $5 (plus green fees which are $0 for members). To play, all you need is a marker. Our Pro-Shop can organise you into a game.
