Post 778 of 790

The Open Fourball was a great success on Sunday with a full sheet of golfers taking advantage of the opportunity to get out there and play. There were some very fine scores on the day with plenty of putts dropping, helped by the fine condition of the greens. Gowran Park members occupied the first two placings.

Result:

1st Larry Cleere (8) & Gerry Minogue (16) – 47 pts.

2nd Tony Dunne (16) & Richard Barron (9) – 45 pts.

Larry had a fine individual score including 4 birdies in his even par round.
