The pair finished on top of the field with a solid score of 46 nett. They were pleased with the win, having won the scratch component in last year&aposs event, they went one better this year to take out the overall title. “It was just a great day and Kerry carried me all the way”, said Albert. The greens were great and the course was in excellent condition.” Albert went on to thank Bowral Golf Club and Golf NSW for running a successful day. In second place with a 45 nett on a countback were father and son pairing, Julian and Phil Roux from Moore Park and Narooma Golf Courses. The men’s nett winners were Blake and Shane Barlow from Cronulla and Kareela Golf Clubs with a 45 nett c/b. The Barlows were runners up overall last year and came to Bowral this year in the hope of taking out a win. “We enjoyed playing here at Bowral”, commented Shane Barlow, and we&aposll be back again next year to give it another go.” Scratch winners for the day were Hayden and Neil Turner from Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club with a great score of 31. Bowral Golf Course presented well despite the recent rain. There was some casual water on course although this did not dampen the day of golf for the competitors. The greens were in excellent condition playing exceptionally fast. It became apparent that good putting was going to be the essential part of the game if you were to be the winning team. This year s event saw many juniors playing with the youngest being Blake McWhirter. Blake is just 12 years of age and played with his proud Dad, Rodney. With a field of 84 players Bowral Golf Club supplied homemade muffins for morning tea prior to the 9.30am shotgun. The BBQ lunch of steak and salad was delicious and the hospitality of the staff at Bowral Golf Club was appreciated by all the competitors. Special thanks goes to the Bowral Golf Presidents, David Stanley and Bernadette Brown and Women’s Captain Pam Barker. For all those family teams who participated we hope you enjoyed your golf and the hospitality of Bowral Golf Club and Golf NSW. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
