On Tuesday (October 27) Dale Rabbett took out top honours yet again, in the veteran golfers' individual Stableford at Gloucester Country Club .

An intrepid group of 24 golfers took part in quite chilly conditions more reminiscent of late winter than late spring. A testament to the sanity of chasing a little while ball around a paddock perhaps.

All that notwithstanding there were some good scores handed in with tight competition at the top of the leaderboard.

Dale Rabbett won on a count back from Phil Hawkins both scoring 39 points. Veteran golfers picking up a ball for their trouble were Phil Patterson (37), Peter Ross and Joost Werz (35), Mike Howard (34) and Dave Salman (33).

This week's event will be an individual Stableford sponsored by the veteran golfers and this time on the Monday as there is a club event and barbecue lunch on the Tuesday commemoration some horse race in Melbourne it seems. Results from Monday November 2 will appear in the Gloucester Advocate next Wednesday; next week's event, November 10, will be an individual Stableford sponsored by Joost Werz and family.
