The townspeople of Berrigan were in celebration mode at the Berrigan Golf Club on Sunday, rejoicing after yet another impressive victory against their farming rivals.

The annual Townies vs Farmers event resulted in a second succesive win for the Townies after a fun day on the course.

The 18-hole stroke event saw the victors win with a score of 593, compared to the Farmers’ 603.

Paul Riley was in top-notch form, firing 94 off the stick for a nett score of 73, and was crowned the individual winner of the day.

But it came right down to the wire, with runner-up Ashley Teagle, a 17-handicapper, also scoring 73 nett and getting knocked down via countback.

Peter Shand showed his prowess on the greens, winning the putting award with 25 putts.

Ball winners were Tom Walliss, Jeremy O’Dywer and Brian Burston.

There was also a nine-hole competition played on the day, which was won by Marianne Whelan ahead of runner-up Sharyn Holmes.

The junior winner was Bailey Holmes.

The Berrigan Golf Club thanks everyone who supported the day which continues to be a fabulous social day, and no doubt the farmers will be doing some heavy recruiting for the next event, which is in September.
