Big field for Classic

By Deniliquin Content

A big field will gather this weekend for the annual Winter Classic.

The fourball best ball stableford will be played over Saturday and Sunday, with 18 hole events each day and a combined 36 hole event. The club thanks our sponsors, Riverina Watermatic, Cleaner Carpets and Deniliquin Tile Centre.

Like all the classics it is certain to be a great weekend. Good luck to all players, and don’t forget there will be a barbecue lunch available on both days. The draw is on page 20.

On Saturday we had the Central IGA Monthly Medal, won by Neville Werner who continues to lower his handicap back towards where it used to be, since returning after a break from golf. He also won B grade, with net 68.

A grade winner was Neil Boswell with net 70, on countback from John Radeski, and C grade went to Robert Armytage with net 72 on countback from Laurie Hughes. B grade runner-up was Marg Rothwell with net 69, the second best score of the day.

The men’s foursomes was played on Sunday and winners were Graeme Willoughby and John Radeski with 79-5-74. Note, the mixed foursomes will be played on Sunday, June 24.

On Wednesday the A grade stableford winner was Ian Fuller with 40 points, from Graeme Rothwell on 38. In B grade Graham Huntington had 41, a shot clear of runner-up James Rhook with 40.

Leading into the long weekend why not head down to the club tonight for the meat raffles and Joker’s Wild, which is climbing rapidly and now up to $4600. And be on the look-out for a Friday night treat in the near future.
