McGlashan’s scores of 73, 78, 75 and 72 gave him a total of 298.

He finished 12 shots clear of Brad Scott with veteran Peter Dixon three shots further back.

Brendan Chambers shot scores of 80, 78, 77 and 80 to finish in fourth place.

Playing off a handicap of eight, these scores were good enough for Chambers to win the A grade handicap with 283 nett, finishing one shot clear of Matt Lawryk on 284 nett.

After a bit of a rough start, Kyle Hutchings proved too in B grade to claim a two shot victory.

Hutchings shot 93 in the first round before shooting 86, 84 and 87 to finish with 350.

He finished two shots ahead of Peter Bristol with Peter Boschman a further four shots back.

Rod Kiley enjoyed a very good final round 84 to finish in fourth spot.

Hutchings’ scores, courtesy of a 17 handicap, were also good enough to claim the B grade handicap award.

Brent Timmins held on to claim the C grade Club Championship by three strokes.

Holding a two shot lead heading into the final round, Timmins held his nerve while his competition faltered.

Timmins shot rounds of 93, 89, and 99 in the first three rounds before a final round of 94 sealed the victory with 375.

Seemingly out of the running, Chris Goodie shot 90 in the final round to jump up the leader board and finish in second spot.

Equal first round leader with Timmins, Fine Latu finished in third, some 10 shots behind the winner.

Trevor Chatman will be disappointed with his final round of 105 after only trailing the winner by two shots heading into Saturday’s event.

Chatman finished in fourth place.

John Dwyer, playing off a handicap of 29, finished the four rounds of the championships with a nett score of 278 to claim the C grade handicap award.

Dwyer’s score was the best overall nett score of the championships, four shots better than the next best.

Lachlan Buesnell continues to impress, claiming both the Junior and Schoolboy championships.

Buesnell shot rounds of 82, 81, 77 and 82 to finish with 322 and a nett score of 294.

Harry Simpson put in a fine effort to take out the Sub-junior award.

“Congratulations to all the winners and everyone who played in the championships,” Parkes Golf Club captain Peter Dixon said.

“Thanks to Terry Brothers for their continued support which is much appreciated.”
