Tuross Head Country Club men’s golf stroke and putt monthly medal competition was held this week, an event where golfers compete over three grades with the winners of each grade then competing for the title of “medal of medal” winner later in the year.

B grade golfer John Phyland was first with a very low score of 65 strokes.
Peter Nikolic 68 filled second placing and Trevor Jones was third on a countback.
There was also very close competition in the C grade division with Graeme Bell emerging as the
winner with 66 net strokes.
Allen Lee had a good round of 67 net strokes for second placing and Herb Muriwai’s 67
saw him finish in third position on a countback.
Richard Kelly won the putting competition with a creditable 24 putts and Peter Johnston
won the Golden Shot award with 1.15 m.
