A perfect Mudgee day greeted 29 eager Vets' golfers on Tuesday March 19 after a few days of rain which did wonders to the course and, in particular, the recently renovated and cored greens.
It was a welcome back to a regular visitor, Stephen from Leura, and another visitor, Patrick from Kiama.
The clear-cut winner with an outstanding 39 points was Colin Todd who left the rest of the field in his wake.
Colin was almost flawless in his round as he produced an extremely consistent 18 holes of golf.
He started well, settled into a great rhythm during the round and then powered to the end in style.
Second place went to David Evans (35) who started with his 'almost' guaranteed wipe on the first hole before he showed his true form on the remaining holes.
He had enough points in hand to defeat Alex Nicholson (34c/b) whose 22 points on the back nine holes was far too good for fourth placegetter, Jeff Williamson (34).
Ball winners were Trish Jones, Stuie Campbell, Doug Thomas, Greg Llewelyn, Drew Pirie, Doug Cook, Graham Cross, Bob Kearins, Neil Howland, visitor Stephen York and Keith Baker.
The Soldiers' Motel NTP Voucher on the 4th hole went to Tom Cooke who caressed his tee shot to 537cm from the elusive target.
