Father and Son in the Winners Circle at Harden Open
After a hiatus from organised comp golf for the Covid 19 Iso phase, Harden has held its 2020 Open Tournament on a green course in fine fettle and timed it just right to a break in the pending weather.
On the day, father and son combination Ben Glover and Jack Glover have taken a big piece of the prizes between them, claiming major event wins on the day. Dad Ben, who is a long time Harden Club Champion, claimed the Open Tournament win with a magical little -2 off the stick result, whilst son Jack took the B Grade Nett result with a round 8 better than his handicap for a superb 63 nett. Great stuff by our locals.
The Club enjoyed hosting visitors from Cootamundra, Yass, Queanbeyan, Murrumbidgee and Binalong on the day, putting together quite a reasonable field size under the circumstances. The results of the major events are as featured below and for the uninitiated, 71 is the par for the course.

Regardless of the field size, thanks are due to all those who pitch in and help. From Karen Glover as Acting GM and Field starter/handicapper on the day, through to Rosemary Irving who did a great job on sustenance at the BBQ and to Mr and Mrs Elliott and Graeme Williams for scoring and prizes/announcing.
Feedback on the course condition and hospitality enjoyed by the visitors was fantastic and the Board of the Country Club was thanked roundly for hosting and sponsoring this year’s event.
