STRATH­BO­GIE GOLF CLUB

Euroa Gazette - - GAZETTE SPORTS -

THE club laments los­ing the an­nual chal­lenge against Euroa Golf Club last week­end by only half a point.

Con­grat­u­la­tions must go to Euroa for their great win and for the ter­rific spirit in which this event was played, how­ever next year we’ve got the pen­cil.

For Twi­light golf on Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 24, twelve play­ers took on the nine cored greens.

The win­ner was Al­lan Rowarth with 15 points.

The men’s drive and pitch went to Keith See­ber.

The club kept the ball for near­est the pin on the eighth.

We had two vis­it­ing play­ers, Rae and Dick Farmer from Euroa.

No golf was played on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28 as a work­ing bee was held in­stead.

On Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 30 the re­main­ing nine holes were cored and the course was ex­ten­sively mowed to keep up with the growth.

Sta­ble­ford was the game on Satur­day with Greg Roberts win­ning on 35 points.

Line balls went to Lau­rie Dobson, a visi­tor from Broad­ford, with 34 points and Mardi Trescowthick also won a ball with 33 points.

The ladies’ drive and pitch also went to Mardi.

The men’s drive and pitch went to David Ken­nett.

No­body claimed near­est the pin on the 4th hole, Eleanor Barns got the 8th, David Ken­nett took the 15th and Lau­rie Dobson won the 17th.

We had nine play­ers from Marysville visit during the week with two of them re­turn­ing on Satur­day to play an­other round of 18 holes.

Golf on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11 will be sta­ble­ford with John Moore look­ing after pro­ceed­ings. Steers who de­feated Bill Cur­ren on a count­back.

Both play­ers fin­ished up a great golf­ing evening with 20 sta­ble­ford points each - well done boys.

Near­est the pin win­ner on the 8th was Billy Wright.

Balls down the line win­ners were: Bill Cur­ren (20 points) and Bev Jung­wirth (19 points).

This was also the third round of the Keith See­ber Twi­light Tro­phy.

With the fi­nal round to be played this Fri­day evening com­ing, the cur­rent lead­ers are: 1st Bev Jung­wirth ( 42 points), 2nd Bill Cur­ren ( 40 points) and 3rd Dot Rule (37 points).

With an­other 20 odd play­ers bit­ing at their heels, this Fri­day’s round is go­ing to be hotly con­tested. Good luck to you all! With the weather fore­cast to be in the high 20’s, there is no ex­cuse not to come out and join us this week for a fun so­cial round of golf.

Twi­light Golf is a nine hole ‘so­cial’ com­pe­ti­tion which is run ev­ery Fri­day evening from 5pm during day­light sav­ings.

Re­fresh­ments are avail­able during and post com­pe­ti­tion. All lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence wel­come. Hand­i­cap play­ers com­pete in a sta­ble­ford round and those with­out a hand­i­cap com­pete in the Cal­loway sys­tem.

Cost is $5 for mem­bers, $7 for non-mem­bers.

There is equip­ment avail­able to hire ‘free of charge’ from the club for those re­quir­ing it.

So we look for­ward to see­ing you all out on the course on Fri­day evening.
