Bray wins Northam monthly mug competition

Peter Bray demolished Saturday's field of golfers with a nett 73 to take home the trophy

After surviving Dry July, last Saturday’s golfing event at the Northam Country Club golf course was the August monthly mug, which was an opportunity for someone to rehydrate before the end of the season. 

The trophy for August was sponsored by Avon 4X4, which a lot of players can relate to as bush bashing and going into harsh territory hardly ventured is a regular occurrence for many of the golfers.

Driving the ball like a demon and putting with precision, Peter Bray was not going to give up a chance of free chardonnay for a month, demolishing the field with a nett 73 to take home the trophy.

Runner-up was the ever-consistent Cameron Stewart who put together another stellar round of golf with a score of nett 75.

Elders insurance novelties winners were - No 1 best second shot Steve Blake; No 6, nearest the pin, Steve Dinka; No 14, nearest the pin, Terry Lawler  (money hole); No 16, longest putt, Ollie Griffith.
