Golfers rel­ish spring tour­na­ment

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

ment a great suc­cess.

On Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6, the Mixed Pine­hurst spon­sored by Euroa HealthSave Phar­macy was rein­tro­duced af­ter not be­ing played over the last cou­ple of years.

A very good field of 26 pairs played with fa­ther/daugh­ter com­bi­na­tion of Greg and Tori Walker tak­ing out the com­pe­ti­tion with an 81-55.5.

It was Tori’s first com­pe­ti­tion event so it was a great way to start and we hope she makes it out to the course and join in many more com­pe­ti­tion events in the fu­ture.

The run­ners up in this event were Mandy Ed­wards and Bill Sar­good with 81-61.

Satur­day was the 4BBB Par Men’s and Ladies’ event spon­sored by Bur­tons IGA Su­per­mar­ket with 76 golfers play­ing in near-per­fect con­di­tions.

The men’s win­ners were vis­i­tors Greg and Rob Han­son shoot­ing a fan­tas­tic +13 with mem­bers Ge­off Vin­cent and Warwick Smith run­ners up on a nearly equally fan­tas­tic +12.

The ladies’ win­ners were Char­lene Cullen (who has had a big cou­ple of weeks in golf) and Leanne Hawkey hav­ing an ex­cel­lent +10 with Maudie In­gram and Jenny Thomp­son run­ners up with a very good plus nine.

The club­house was fairly full at the end of the day where golfers en­joyed an ex­cel­lent af­ter­noon tea.

Sun­day was the Men’s 27 Hole event which adds up to a fairly big day of golf.

The weather wasn’t as friendly as the pre­vi­ous cou­ple of days and the field was a lit­tle bit down on pre­vi­ous years.

Spon­sored by Ford McKer­nan En­gi­neer­ing, there are lots of prizes with three di­vi­sions over 27 holes, 18 holes and nine holes.

The 27 hole Scratch win­ner was vis­i­tor Chris Lin­gard (2) 107 with other cat­e­gory win­ners are listed be­low.

As­so­ci­ated with the Spring Tour­na­ment is the HJ Goldswor­thy 18 Hole Nett which is an open honor board event and this year’s win­ner was Sey­mour golfer Ian Richardson (5) with a score of 65.

A big thank you to all the peo­ple who helped make this year’s tour­na­ment such a great suc­cess in­clud­ing Tour­na­ment Di­rec­tor Brian Rosen­brock, mem­bers in­volved with send­ing fields off, mem­bers who did the cater­ing each day, run­ning the bar and the grounds staff for pre­sent­ing the course in such good con­di­tion.

Last Wed­nes­day we had our sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 29 play­ers hit­ting the course.

Di­vi­sion one was taken out by Mark Bow­den (13) with a great score of 41 and the di­vi­sion two win­ner was David Ful­lager (19) with a mag­nif­i­cent score of 45 points.

The club cham­pi­onship com­mences this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14 and it is also the Oc­to­ber monthly medal so with the course in such a fan­tas­tic con­di­tion it would be great to see as many golfers out there as pos­si­ble.

Twi­light golf has com­menced on Fri­day evenings and is back in ac­tion and this Wed­nes­day is the usual sta­ble­ford event.
