Seven teams of four golfers took to the golf course on Tuesday July 6 in an event staged by Gloucester veteran golfers, a Four Ball Aggregate Stableford. It is an event in which each team member plays an individual round with the aggregate of the four scores making up the team score.

The day itself was frosty and chilly early opening up to a sunny and quite warm day, ideal for golf in fact. The course itself was in great shape even though it was a little heavy with the rain of the previous week or so. Special "no touchy" playing conditions continue to apply based on recommendation of the State Government and of Golf New South Wales.

The four players in the winning team were Denver Webb, Peter Buettel, Bert Newman and Gary Threadgate with 113 Stableford point in total. Denver and Gary doing the heavy lifting for the team contributing 33 points each. The runners up were Bruce Fraser, Steve Hurworth, Gai Fall and Dale Rabbett 112; followed closely by John Herd, Mike Howard, Col Roser and Rick Paff 110. The best individuals were Ken Kelly, Gary Threadgate and Denver Webb all scoring 33 points.

On Tuesday July 13, the Gloucester veteran golfers are playing an Individual Stableford sponsored by Johanna and Col Ware. The following week there will be an Individual Stroke and Putting competition sponsored by Marj and Ken Clarke.
