Saturday saw 87 starters for the Quick Shine Carwash two person event. Owner Ben McNaughton put on a great day with longest drives, lucky card draws and fantastic prizes and give aways.
The mens winners on the day were Cody Hando and Jake Hodge, while the women's event was taken out by Lyn Davison and Leone Stevenson - all winners collected $100 carwash vouchers each.
Troy Thomson collected the cash on the Money hole with a great shot to 170cms, it's a pity his birdie putt wasn't as good, however a great par was achieved. Sue Holman took out the womens longest drive and Dave Boom Time Chambers showed his form with taking out the mens longest drive.
This week will see the Corner Boys sponsor an 18hole Stableford event with the much sought after Terry Sheridan Memorial Trophy up for grabs and the ladies will also play a 18 hole Stableford sponsored by SM Built.
A reminder to members that the draws for the Matchplay events, McDermott Cup and Jack Burch are on the notice boards with all first round games due to be played by the end of April.
Parkes Division 2 Pennants Winners
The Parkes division 2 Pennants team has successfully defended its title in the 2020 Central West District Golf Associations competition. Competing against nine other towns including major centres, Dubbo, Bathurst and Orange the Parkes Club continues to punch above its weight with three Pennants histories over the last four years.
The Division 2 side was capably led by Captain Joe Van Opynen who was looking to remain undefeated for two entire seasons, however the unthinkable occurred and Joe was beaten in his match last Sunday, but this was still a fantastic effort, Riall Harrison also suffered his first loss of the year against a red hot opponent , Tim Burke stepped up to cover John Greens absence ( he was away attending a One Direction concert) and achieve a commanding victory 4&6 and Luke Clarke bounced back to form with a 6&4 demolition of his opponent. This left Brendan Chambers to secure the victory and he needed to dig deep to recover from a deficit of three holes with four to play - Chambo won three holes in a row to draw level on the last hole and narrowly missed a putt on the 18th green to win the match, which saw both players head to a 19th hole to decide the champions - which obviously Brendan did to secure an amazing individual and team victory.
A massive shout out to all of the players who represented the Parkes Club in 2020, your efforts and support has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to catching up with you all in the next month or so with an organised Team day out at the club - stay tuned for more information.
Hugh Bowman, rated by some as the best jockey in the world, was a big attraction when riding at the Coonamble meeting and to the delight of his many fans he booted home a winner, the Mack Griffith, Mudgee trained Royal Monarch in the 1400 metres Showcase Maiden Plate.
Given a charmed run close to the leaders, Royal Monarch ( $3.50 ) took control in the straight and won by over three lengths from Mudgegonga ( Michael Heagney,$14 ) and Now Or Never ( Grant Buckley, $3.10 favourite ).
Hugh Bowman later stated he had ridden at many good tracks around the world and Coonamble was up there with the best of them.
Overall, the Championship day was a tremendous success and a well deserved reward for the untiring work from the Coonamble Jockey Club committee to host the prestigious event.
Although the majority of starters at the Broken Hill St Pats meeting on Saturday came from stables in Victoria and South Australia there was success for jockeys and trainers from central and western New South Wales.
