John Chatfield probably thought that his 42 points in Dubbo Golf Club’s individual stableford was enough to claim the first event of the year, but he was relegated to second when Les Fuller handed in his card of 43.
Both men played off 11 and found the 10 to 27 course to their liking with Fuller’s 43 seeing him take home a $50 voucher courtesy of Whitney’s Jewellers.
David Bourne took home the B grade voucher with 40 points ahead of Rex Currie who claimed the runner-up prize on a count back with 39 while Brian Martin won C grade with 39 ahead of Bill Price on 38.
The ball competition went to 35 with 140 starters kicking off 2005 with a round of 18.
