With yet another very successful Eden Whale Festival being the main attraction for many on Saturday in the Eden hamlet, a very much reduced field were in attendance for the November monthly medal at the Eden Gardens Golf Club.

The club wishes to thank Eden Newsagency and Mitre 10 (Eden) for their continued support of this event.

Medal winner and best round of the day was realised by the veteran John Doorty from division two with a superb round of 69 nett.

He defeated John Walker who landed a three-off-the-pace 72.

In division one Steve Huff claimed the honours with a solid round of 70 on the somewhat slower greens than usual.

Runner-up was the veteran Ian Hamdorf who managed to accrue a scoreline of 71 nett off his 18 handicap.

Best scratch score of the day was recorded by club professional David Sherlock with one over par 72.

In the ball rundown players needed 75 or better.

The golden shot on the 18th was won by Paul Hutchinson.

This Saturday, November 10, the Eden club members will journey to Mallacoota to contest their yearly open event where they hope to regain the Gabo Cup.
