Cohens’ day out
Get into golf! That’s the New Year’s resolution being promoted by Deniliquin Golf Club.
If you are not a golfer, there has never been a better time to start.
Golf is great for fitness, regardless of your age, and as a bonus there is also a fun social aspect.
A strength of Deniliquin Golf Club is the friendly nature and exceptional club atmosphere.
If you’re a non-golfer, the clinics for seniors are expected to start again in February. Details at the pro shop.
There have been numerous volunteer programs in recent years which have received outstanding member support. One of the latest is ‘adopt a fairway’, where a small group gets together and helps with maintenance of a particular hole.
There are still some vacancies, so if you can help out there is a sheet in the pro shop.
On course, Saturday was Cohen Day with Tom returning home to score 44 points and win A grade, while father Bruce scored 36 to win C grade.
Top score in Wednesday’s A grade stableford event was Ian Lance, who managed to get a ‘leave pass’ and score an impressive 44 points, which gave him the C grade prize. A grade winner was the consistent Chris Thomson on 37, and B grade went to Simon Blomeley on 42.
A highlight was Dick Bolton’s eagle on the par five first hole, and it would be a safe bet to assume his third shot wasn’t a putt.
Friday night fun and frivolity continues at the club tonight with meat raffles, Joker’s Wild and meals available. The Joker’s Wild jackpot is up to $4,4000 - now wouldn’t that make a lovely New Year bonus. Last week’s results: Thursday December 22, ladies stableford: Winner Jenny Choice 38 pts.
