Veterans’ GolfAlf Davies continues as one of the best all-round sportsmen in Forbes, this time in golf. Prior to today Alf showed outstanding talents to be one of the best in the district on the rugby league field (unfortunately with the Parkes Spacemen) while equally at home on the squash and tennis courts in his current home of Forbes. Today bowls and golf are at the forefront for the likeable and talented gentleman. Last weekend he undertook a new challenge playing in the championship fours at the ‘Bowlie’ with success. Last Thursday he blitzed all comers in the 12-hole veterans golf competition between players from Forbes and Parkes. With a two under par round Alf massed 29 points coasting to an easy win over another fellow Forbes member in Ted Morgan who was runner-up with 25 points on a count-back from two other local players, Garry Collits and Barry Parker. Parkes did pick up a trophy, Ron Klein with seven points for the Encouragement Award.

Ball sweep to 21 points; 25 Garry Collits, Barry Parker, 23 Max Haley (F), Richard Hamilton (P), Graham Cooke (P), John Pearce (P), 22 Tom Edols (F), Laurie Wakefield (P), 21 John O’Shannessy (P).
