On the net side Dennis Debolt won three balls for shooting 67, Jerry white had 70 to win two balls with Darrell Van Os and Pat McKay each receiving one ball for coming in with net 71.

The Stableford competition for 2011 gets underway next Monday, May 16, and is held on the third Monday of each month until September.
This event is open to both men and women. There will be a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m., although the early birds who wish to enter the competition may tee off earlier. If you compile 36 points which is right around your handicap you will automatically win $35 in club money.
The more points you rack up the more you can win. For those who may be off their game be sure to turn you score cards in as there will be several draws each day.
There will also be closest to the pin prizes of sleeves of balls, No. 2 will be for men with handicap of 15 or higher, No. 4 will be for all the women, No. 13 for men with handicaps lower than 15 and No. 17 will be for all competitors.
Your points will be added together every month, with prizes given out for cumulative totals. The more times you play in this event the better chance you have of winning in September.
At least one prize for the highest female total will be awarded. This may vary based upon the number of female participants. The cost remains the same as other years at $20.
