The weather wasn't too bad on Saturday as 80 players teed it up on the annual Life Members sponsored event.
It's an opportunity to pay homage to the Life Members and the deeds that got them elevated to their exalted status. Our thanks to Lionel Grady, Colleen Flynn, Cliff Cowell, Doug Lindsay and Paul Thomas.
The event was a 2 person Ambrose and there were hot pairings lining up on tee 1 with the north easterly behind them.
The husband and wife duo of Melissa and Craig Matthews blew the field away with a low 63 nett.
Both these players have had great form since joining the club and they will no doubt figure highly in the mixed foursomes later this year.
The next best pairing was 2 shots behind with the bruise brothers Max Keith and Michael Thomas hitting long for their 65 just edging out another big hitting combo in Anthony Riach and Finne Latu on 65.25 the same score as the Smith brothers.

On Sunday the NSW Golf Keno qualifier was held in Parkes in a very strong and cold northerly wind.
