With the election underway, a field of 31 players took to the Penola Golf Course on Saturday for the Wynns Coonawarra Estate monthly medal.
It was also the first round of qualifying for this years club championship and all players were out to post a good score.
The A Grade had a variety of scores with Don Ferguson being the pick with a nett 70 and showing that he will be in the mix for the open.
Ferguson was consistent throughout the round with two double bogeys being his only major hiccup.
The runner-up was Chris Holden with a nett 72 which may see him be a sneaky chance of earning a spot in the open.
In third was Nathan Williams with a 73 and again showed that he can putt by winning the putting comp with 25 putts.
A handful of players came up with nett 74s with Peter Walker wining on countback for fourth.
The B Grade was taken out by Mal Redman with a 70, one shot ahead of John Wilkinson.
It can be said that his heart was not in the game after his beloved Swans were set upon by a horde of Hawks the night before.
Third was Andrew Hutchesson on 72, who came out early so as to get home to watch the footy.
Sadly his day didn't go to plan with the Cats failing to deliver.
Grant Stephenson was his consistent self scoring a reasonable 73.
The C Grade was a little more spread out with Dean Moore showing glimpses of his old form for a nett 72.
Trevor Williams mad a rare appearance on a Saturday to post a 74.
They were the standout scores with Mark Edwards back on 77 and Curt Evans with 79 to round out the places.
Players are reminded that due to the Eagles making the grand final this weekend that some players will be teeing off early to head over to watch the match.
The afternoon golfers will still be out in force.
So due to possibly losing some players another round of qualifying has been added to give everyone a fair chance to qualify, which will be held on September 29, the day after the AFL grand final.
