Lithgow golfers are wondering if their course is ever going to dry up with carts again banned due the very soft conditions which continues to impact on the fields.
Saturday's (July 30) event was the July monthly medals. The star of the day was A grader Shane Monaghan (8) who was the only player in the field to break his handicap in the tough conditions.
Monaghan grew up across the highway and spent most of his early years playing golf under the tutelage of the then pro, David Hando.
Although not playing as much golf now, he has maintained his knowledge of the game that has had made him a very good golfer.
Playing early in the heavy frost, Monaghan put a very good round together with his 69 nett winning him the A grade voucher and monthly medal.
Runner up was Brian Judge (3) with a 73 nett, while the best scratch score went to Troy Luka (4).
Young Mitchell Wallace (15) showed the benefits of playing a lot of golf during the recent school holidays and put together some excellent golf to amass a 75 nett and take out the B grade medal.
B grade runner up was Greg Jackson (11) on 76 nett who played the majority of his round in the frost with the scratch winner being Phil Rooke (10) on 86 ocb.
Due to the small numbers in C grade the medal will be held over to next month with the voucher winner being Brian Giblett (21) on 73 nett from Jarrod Pattison (25) on 74 nett. Scratch winner was Hayden Wren (22) on 97.
Voucher winners were Peter Hall, Gary Wallace, Mitchell Luka and Don Farnsworth. Cut out on 76 nett.
Nearest the pins went to Brad Preston, Brian Judge, Mitch Luka, Brian Bourke and Mitchell Wallace.
