ON AFL Grand Fi­nal day, as Rich­mond de­mol­ished the Ade­laide Crows at the MCG, re­cently re-joined mem­ber Dav Mack­rell (24) de­mol­ished the field at the Euroa Golf Club with a scin­til­lat­ing sta­ble­ford round of 42 points to take out divi­sion two.

Josh Bell (4) took out divi­sion one with a very solid 38 points with many of the field of 28 golfers hit­ting the course early be­fore re­tir­ing for the day to watch the Grand Fi­nal.

It turns out that the crafty crow near the club­house wasn’t an omen for the Grand Fi­nal but golfers be warned, it’s still there, at the ready to grab any tasty morsel in its beak that it can find in golfers carts while they putt out on the 9th green.

Wed­nes­day golf was changed from the 4BBB listed in the golf­ing pro­gram to the usual sta­ble­ford round with 33 golfers mak­ing up the field on a fairly windy day.

Eric Sel­lenger (17) took out divi­sion one with a good 37 points and Wally Sin­clair (26) took out divi­sion two with a very good 40 points.

As the Spring Tour­na­ment ap­proaches, the course is com­ing up re­ally well.

The fair­ways are well grassed and the greens are re­cov­er­ing re­ally well af­ter their cor­ing at the start of Septem­ber thanks to the ef­forts of greens keeper Matt Eddy and his right hand man Neil San­ders.

The Spring Tour­na­ment is on this week­end and there are still places in all events.

Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6 is the Mixed Pine­hurst spon­sored by Euroa Health-Save Phar­macy with assem­bly at 11:30am for a mid­day multi-tee (shot­gun) start and we have enough en­tries for this event to go ahead.

We are get­ting a lot of green fee play­ers out on the course and the club ap­pre­ci­ates the pay­ment of green fees as this money all goes to­wards main­tain­ing the course in such good con­di­tion.

The course is look­ing quite spec­tac­u­lar at this time of year and as lit­tle known golf­ing philoso­pher Dave Sumphin notes: “A tree is a thing of beauty un­less your golf ball is un­der it.” We have a lot of beauty out there.
