Although we all know we urgently need rain it has been great weather for golf with the days often starting rather cold and foggy but turning into wonderful warm days. 25 April was no different for our Monthly Medal round which was won by Mark Russell from the Wentworth Club with a great Nett 66. Joan Edwards and Rod Ashbolt tied for second, each having a Nett 67 and Gordon Thomson finished fourth with a Nett 69. As Women play from the Red tees with a par 74 and men play off the blue tees with a par of 71 Joan and Rod finished with equal tied for first for the Medal. It was great to have Barrie Young join us for a round on one of his rare visits from the USA. I know he is an avid reader of the KV Voice so we are looking forward to your permanent return to the Valley. We don’t have -25o winters. Being the ANZAC Day long weekend a Stableford comp was played on the Monday and was won by Norris Ingrisch scoring 38 points. Dinny Mandalis was second with 36 points and Suzanne Greer third with 33.
