After two rounds of the 2021 Club Championship no one has established an unassailable lead in any Grade, with the deciding rounds, to be held in a fortnight the key to victory.
Dave Crawford looks fairly comfortable in A Grade with his two par rounds of 72 giving him an edge of 6 shots over Tom Stewart with Hunter Caldwell some way back in third.
Ben Rolfe has the lead in B Grade with rounds of 81 and 84 giving him a 4 shot lead over Andreas Geach and 7 from Troy Henning.
C Grade is the tightest race with Tony Monday, after rounds of 94 and 93 3 shots ahead of Steve Edgenton and 4 ahead of Alan Kelly.
Congratulations to the October Monthly Medallists:
A Grade – Kim Howard
B Grade – Ben Rolfe
C Grade Steve Edgenton
There were again some good rounds over the week with Ben Rolfe’s 63 net the pick of them followed by John Gargett with 66 net and Rodney Baker with 67 net.

Cart drivers are requested not to drive their carts through the creek on the 12th fairway as there are ruts developing in the hazard from the cart traffic. Please use the crossings on the 11th and 13th. There is also the risk of getting bogged with one slow learner getting himself bogged on two occasions.
Our new greens irrigation system (thanks to a major grant from the NSW Department of Customer Services) is working well and a significant improvement to the surrounds should soon be noticeable as the ground warms up and the grass grows.
Other significant improvements around the club house area will immediately be noticeable to members, with a new rock wall and cart track across the front of the club house installed in the last week thanks to the the extraordinary generosity of Burke’s Plant Hire.
A complete makeover of the 18th bunker has also been competed with the installation of new drainage, new sand and improvements to the surrounds. It looks a peach and has overcome the flooding problems that have plagued it for many years. Once again a small number of dedicated volunteers has effected a major improvement to the course.
