Branxton's Corey Lamb defended his title as the Branxton Open Champion in devastating style with his four-under par 66, an outstanding six strokes clear of runner up Steve Piggot.
The quality of his game can be measured by the fact that his two favourite clubs are his driver and his putter, two clubs he handles with great skill.
Playing with his uncle, Mark Hale, a 15-time Branxton Club Champion, some wonderful golf was on display around the tricky Branxton course.
He started his round with three birdies in the first five holes, effectively putting the open result in no doubt.
Neil Jordan turned back time in winning B-Grade with an excellent 80 off the stick, an outstanding seven strokes clear of runner up Joe Bereza.
C-Grade was won by local veteran Col Hughes with his 96, just ahead of James Hale - Corey Lamb's cousin and Mark Hale's son - there is certainly some pedigree there and some very promising elements to his game.
The day's major sponsor, John Gray, made his trip from Bulli very worthwhile by winning the A-Grade nett trophy with his net 68-not a bad effort since it was his first game since last year's Branxton Open.
Steve Kearney made a welcome return to form with his runner's up score of 69.
The B-Grade nett winner was Toby Grant who produced the day's best net score of 64 - a great score on any day. This enabled him to also win the Ted Meyn Memorial Trophy with the best net score-a very rewarding and profitable day.
Kel Mather was runner up, nine strokes back, with his 73 net.
The C-Grade net winner was Lachlan Kauter with his net 74, just ahead of Terry Partridge's 76.
Dave Dever, Chris Taylor and Col Hughes all won the nearest the pins, with Dave's shot so near a hole in one as it landed less then a metre over the pin before spinning back to within 60cms - a great shot.
The new club captain Steve Ross needs to be congratulated with his first real test as captain, as the day went very smoothly.
The support from many club members around the course, with its preparation, ball spotting, barbecue and adherence to all the Covid protocols just shows how small golf clubs can be such a success-well done everyone.
