Rain or sunshine, golfers are still on the greens
FROM wild rain and storms to blue skies and sunshine, golf went (mostly) ahead on courses right across the region.
Some golfers needed umbrellas while others were applying sunblock.
At the end of the day, some excellent results have emerged which shows that our golfers are determined to get the most out of their game.
Meanwhile, once again Lismore Women's Golf Club prove they can combine great golf with a good time at their excellent course.
Tuesday July 21 there were some who found the course easy and some who found only the first hole easy with the day progressively getting worse as the game went on. There were 46 players for the Vets Single Stableford event and Don Evelyn (27) finished with a great score of 42 points from Skippy Bennett (22) with 39, John Nipperess (25) had a good round with 38 points and then came the popular score of 36 points lead by Bob Reiche (31), Jeff Lassig (14), Greg Petty (21) and Robert Oaten (21).

Dear All - seems I put the mocker on the weather last week with my "sensational winter golfing weather" comment, with 83mm of rain falling on the course from Friday through to Sunday. That said this wind will help dry things out so let's hope it is back to normal before too long. Golf results for last week
