Crichton, Betland too good at Sand-Grass Champs

Jan Crichton of Killara and John Betland from Forbes have held their overnight leads to take out the 2019 NSW Sand & Grass Greens Championship.

In a family affair, Betland recorded a second round of 35 Stableford points at his home club to go with his opening 37 at Grenfell for a total of 72 gross. He eventually won by three points from his brother Steve, who finished with 69 points.

Third place went to Condobolin’s Brett Byrnes and Daniel Bayley of Forbes on 61 points.

Crichton had a contrasting round to her first round but was able to take the Women’s Championship out by seven shots from defending champion Chantell Greaves (Dunedoo).

Grenfell’s Barry Green had consistent rounds on both surfaces to take out the Men’s nett competition with 68 points for the weekend.

Grenfell locals proved to have the advantage with Virginia Drogemuller (Grenfell) winning the Women’s Stableford competition with 69 points for the two rounds.

In the teams’ event, the Betland’s again dominated winning with Daniel Bayley and Michael Grant by a margin of seven points.

The team’s event also allowed three clubs to win $500 toward their Junior program. This year the winning clubs were Forbes, Grenfell and Narromine.

The event was again a great success with locals and players from all over NSW enjoying both venues and the local hospitality that the Forbes region offers.

Golf NSW would like to again thank Forbes Shire Council for their ongoing support of the event and golf in the region.
