SNOWY RIVER GOLF CLASSIC 2022
Despite still having to deal with issues relating to COVID, Orbost Golf Club was able to run the Snowy River Golf Classic, and despite numbers being down on previous years the event was rated a huge success by all who attended. The Friday afternoon 9 hole stableford competition was a little late starting whilst golfers waited for the last of the rain and storms to clear, but everyone got through and enjoyed the club’s hospitality afterwards.
The weekend saw beautiful weather, with the temperature mid 20’s and the course in magnificent condition. The scores reflected the difficulty of having fairways with plenty of grass, particularly for this time of year. The greens were true and fast, and fair to all golfers. Some areas of rough were a little longer than usual, as it had been difficult to get everything done due to the weather. The growth of the grass was so unseasonal.
There were many good scores across the weekend, with winners spread among locals and visitors. The Snowy River Classic Champion for 2022 was former local and regular visitor, Steven McDougall with 77 points. See attachment for all results. (click here) 2022 SR Classic
