Course curator Nigel Kingham, his offsider Rob 'Tractors' Cheney, in hand with their trusted band of volunteers have the course in excellent playing condition and with those hole noodles sitting above ground there was some scintillating scores.
Andrew Parker backed up last weeks score to fire another 47 pointer, equivalent of 78 off the stick.
This would make him the envy of the rest of the Manildra Mill boys and he will be in their sights now.
Harry Glasson wasn't too far behind with a great 45 pointer. It's 2 weeks in a row now that we've had a junior golfer finish runner up.
Great to see and keep it going.
A welcome back to Todd Jayet who has not been out on the course of late. And what a way to return - a par round.
Looks like the sticks couldn't have been gathering too much dust.
Not sure the bookies would have seen this one coming.
It was good to see Ron Hetherington firing to his old self, a well compiled 42 points or 75 off the stick equivalent.
Looks like Wally had to buy the drinks this week.
Just to prove that the veterans can still compete Dub Rogers came in with 42 points as well, great score Dub but the reduction of a stroke will make it hard to back it up this week.
There were also two eagles recorded on the par 5 7th this week by Troy Thomson and Nimesh Piyatissa, great effort by the big hitters.
The ball winners this week were: Harrison Glasson 45 , Todd Jayet 44, Ron Hetherington 42, Dub Rodgers 42, Mark Wright 41, Joe Van Opynen 41, Jake Hodge 41, Phil Barnard 41, Troy Thomson 41, Richard Hamilton 41, Max Keith 40, Warwick Wright 40, Denis Howard 40, Oliver Parker 40, Garry Phipps 40 and Jack Murray 40.
Our Lady golfers also managed to fire up the course this week with Jill Crisp having a great round of 42 points.
It is good to see so many lady golfers on the course through the week and some new potential members trying their hand at our sport.
Runner up this week was Denise Charlton on 39 points still well above her handicap so a good round.
This week we are playing our May Telescope Tyres Monthly Medal sponsored by Tony Williams, long term sponsor of the PGC.
Members thank Tony for his generosity.
The lady golfers will also contest their monthly medal with Mick Horan and his Central West Glass sponsoring again.
Thanks Mick for your support of the PGC.
Club Captain David Stevenson has made an adjustment to the playing conditions going forward.
The noodles will be trimmed to sit below the hole edge. For a shot to be counted as in the hole the ball must fall below the rim of the cup and touch the foam below.
Hitting the pin Does Not count as being holed unless it also strikes the foam below the rim of the hole.
If a ball enters the hole, strikes the foam and bounces back out it is counted as holed-out but it must be confirmed by your playing partner.
