Penrith Golf Club has moved to the lead in the Western Sydney Region Veteran Golfers Association (WSRVGA) Inter-Club competition, following another strong showing in the July event.
Richmond Golf Club hosted the July event, providing their course in great condition and the players enjoying perfect weather.
Penrith had been mid-field in the rankings early in the year but has struck form mid-season to move into outright first.
The biggest winner on the day however was reigning Club of the Year Richmond, with their quartet of Noel Byles, Jim Bullock, Carol Carter and Brian Holland finishing with the day’s best team score of 151, ahead of Penrith 146, Dunheved 146, Springwood 141, Leonay 139, Wallacia 134, Glenmore Heritage Valley 131 and Stonecutters Ride 127.
The Club of the Year honours appear to be a match in four, even at this
early stage of the year.
Richmond is showing a willingness to defend their title to the utmost
but Penrith currently lead the rankings on 738, ahead of Dunheved 732,
Richmond 731 and Wallacia 728.
