A contingent of 10 Cobar ladies and nine men golfers competed at the combined men’s and women’s Nyngan Open on Sunday.

Cobar’s Narelle Kriz was the Women’s Open winner with a Scratch score of 79 and Fay Hardwick won the A Grade Nearest the Pin competition.

Sue Phillips was the C Grade Scratch runner-up with 102 off the stick and also the Nearest the Pin winner in this grade.

Glenis Prisk finished as the C Grade Net runner-up with a score of 67 net.

Matt Russell was the men’s A Grade Net winner with 63 net.

Jenny Stephenson won the Champion of Champions and the Sandgreen Champion titles for 2018 at the Duntryleague Golf Course in Orange last Thursday.

Registered as a player with the Cobar Bowling & Golf Club, Stephenson has cleaned up around our area in the time she has spent away from her Broken Hill home recently.

She has another trip in January as she goes on to play in the Women’s Amateur event sponsored by NSW Golf.

Winning both titles in the same year has only ever been done once and that was in 2018 when Cobar’s Chrissy Gilligan created history.

A few more handicaps were reduced in last Wednesday’s women’s Par game with some good scores from the field of 12 players.

Susan Goonrey won the day with a score of +6 followed by Di Greer on +4, Ann Dunn +2 and Daphne Cross had -1.

Geraldine Francisco was closest to the pin on the 3rd hole and Susan Goonrey claimed the 11th pin prize.

Saturday’s Stroke game had only six contenders with Angela Fryer’s 71 net score good enough for the win.

Fay Hardwick had 73 net as the runner-up and was also the best putter on the day with 24 putts.

Ann Dunn placed third with 74 net.

An even card secured Di Greer with Sunday’s Par game win.

Ann Dunn was the runner-up on a countback from Gloria Hay after both ladies came in with -2.

Geraldine Francisco and Barb Barklimore picked up the Nearest the Pin prizes on the 7th and 15th holes.

Today’s game will be a Stroke event.

The long weekend golf program kicks off on Saturday with the Annual Langford Day Mixed Canadian so get your partners organised for this event. Ladies are asked to take a plate for afternoon tea.

Sunday’s game will be a Stableford and another Stableford will be played on the holiday Monday.—T’d Off
