The Billabong Golf SocietyWednesday, July 10, Green Valley – StablefordGreen Valley today with five groups playing and we got away to an early start and apart from the last group all got in before the rain started.  The course was in great condition, even with all the rain they have had and the carts were allowed on the fairways so no winter rules. Once again there were some great scores mixed with some very ordinary ones.  The day was won by Greig Ritchie again, this time with 38 points and coming second was Darl White on 37, beating Paul Bourke on a count back.  In fourth place was Brian Wilkinson with 35 points on a three-way count back over Roger Ison and Wayne Cotterell.last_img
