Morrison, Orvad take home wins at Kidman Links Golf Course

Another great week of golf at Kidman Links last week with fields in all competitions well up in numbers.

The ladies had a fantastic turnout on Wednesday for their stableford comp with 16 players teeing it up.

Janet Morrison began her excellent week with an impressive 38 points and a big win on the day.

Leanne Brooks from Two Wells was next best with 33 and Gloria Potter carded 32 points.

Forty lads made the most of their Thursday and once again some good scores were handed in.

Steven Watson was back in top form with 40 points.

Just a shot back was Darrell Davies who is also having a very good run with the sticks.

Following the two leaders were a quintet of players on 38 points.

Mrs Murray’s son Harv was the sponsor of the stroke round on Saturday when nearly 70 players hit off and Mick Orvad didn’t take long to re-acclimatise back on his old course with a magnificent 74 off the bat to have the best score on the day with a net 66.

Three players finished up with net 68, with Derek Baird back in form to claim the A grade by a solitary shot from Bert Pearce who has a bit more handicap up his sleeve than he did a year ago. Cougar was another shot back on 70.

Steven Watson and David Jones were the other two with 68 with Watto following up his great Thursday form to claim the countback in the B grade.

David Waters is becoming more comfortable with his new grip and he had a pretty good 71.

Gavin Martin and veteran Reggie Staehr both topped the C grade field with net 70s with the elder statesman losing the countback. Brett Woodards also had one of his better rounds with 71.

Janet Morrison also followed her great mid week form with another fantastic performance of net 66. She had a very comfortable win over Glennis Warrior on 74 and Tine Perry on 75.

I will get a bit of an update on the Drummond Golf match play competition for next week to see who is up in the next round.

This week looks like being another scorcher and DJ and the course committee have decided to close the course from 12pm Monday until 6am on Thursday to reduce the chance of damaging the greens.

Saturday you will need to find someone you can get along with for a 4BBB stableford round with the prize provided by Pegs.

The forecast of a bit cooler weather by the weekend should again see a good field.
