Golfers relish spring tournament
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.
