Hoops in one were scored by Ruth Mole, Maree Maher, Jim Gunn and Helen Brierley.

The club had a good turnout for golf croquet on Tuesday as 17 members attended and we were pleased to welcome two visitors from Deniliquin and two from Echuca Moama Croquet Club.

Two players won all three games, and 10 won two games each.

The day’s winner was Helen Brierley on a nett hoop score of +13.
