One hundred and forty-one senior golfers teed up at Springwood Country Club on Friday, April 20 in the latest round of the Western Sydney Region Veteran Golfer's Association (WSRVGA) 2018 Inter-Club competition.
Players from the home club performed remarkably well, scoring 144 points to have their eyes on the prestigious team prize, only to be cruelly denied by Richmond Golf Club on a countback.
The winning quartet for Richmond were Noel Byles, Colin Cheyne, Frank Gal and Denis Pickering.
There was still plenty of success for Springwood players in the individual and two-ball events, with the placings shown below.
Men's 2BBB: Winners - Barry Beauvais / Barry Polinsky (Springwood) 45 points on countback; Runners-up David Bailey / John Ross (Glenmore) 45.
Medley 2BBB: Winners - Gary McSullea / Sue Evers (Springwood) 44 points; Runners-up Elaine Williams / Diana Bowen (Dunheved) 42.
Men's A Grade Singles: Winner - James Boyd (Springwood) 37 points; Runner-up Bruce Beechey (Dunheved) 36 c/b.
