Stuart Denholm Memorial Stableford
Stu's sister Elizabeth and bother-in-law Douglas travelled from Lithgow last weekend to be at the inaugural memorial event. Liz was overwhelmed by the reception from staff and members, a sign of true respect for Stu. Plans for next year are for more family members to be present and a contingent of Lithgows finest golfers to take on the course. Well done to Tom Dunlop to win the event with 40 points, runner up was Simon Kemp with 39. NTP 11th hole Tony Fitzpatrick and the Pro-pin went to James Burkitt.

Saturday - Jock Rossell - Team Par Trophy and the Bill Chrystal - Lefities.
While Par competitions are not everyones "cup of tea" it is worthwhile getting into the mix for this trophy. A great team event. Calling on all those golfers who play left handed - the Bill Crystal is up for grabs this Saturday.
As a part of this Saturday's presentation we will incorporate the 2021 Championship winners, an opportunity to celebrate their success. You're welcome to join and support our Champions.
9th Hole GUR
Over the next week or so. keep a look out for the penalty area on the Cemetery drain being back in play. A little more work is being done and the GUR will be a thing of the past.
Enjoy the warmer summer conditions, for a few days at least, and keep your head down and follow through!!
