THE Satur­day four-ball best-ball com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted a size­able field with some un­tried com­bi­na­tions of part­ners, male and fe­male. Larry Per­shouse and Co­ralie Vol­gyesi com­bined well to record 44 points, win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion on a count­back from Lisa Cooney and Joan Wright, sec­ond on a count­back from Clin­ton Dowl­ing and Cur­tis Fredrik­sen. Run downs went to Kev Sav­age and Len Stal­lard, Rod­ney Wag­ner and Pe­ter Russo (43), Ray Walker and Pe­ter Hut­ton, Blake Dowl­ing and Chris­tian Fredrik­sen (42). Bill Her­ring (0.85m) won the B-divi­sion ap­proach on 1and 10, Clin­ton Dowl­ing (1.91m) the A-divi­sion pin shot on 4 and 13 and Roger Draper (7.05m) the B-divi­sion pin shot. Dur­ing the week Ken Al­bion and Larry Per­shouse played the fi­nal of the Seb’s match­play com­pe­ti­tion, with Ken win­ning two and one in a close con­test. This year Sue Royan is pre­sent­ing the Seb/Al­lan tro­phy in hon­our of two won­der­ful life mem­bers, Seb Mammino and son-in-law (Sue’s hus­band) Al­lan Royan, and we thank her for the con­tin­u­ing sup­port of her fam­ily. Next week is the fi­nal Monthly Medal com­pe­ti­tion for 2015, so our last chance to qual­ify for the Medal of Medal­lists play-off. Also it might be our last chance to bring a plate, please.


VICKI Wyeth scored 35 points to win the Thurs­day sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion from Kerry Sch­nack on 33 points. He­len Ric­cia­rdi (1.44m) won the ap­proach. Next Thurs­day is the fi­nal Monthly Gob­let stroke event for the year. On Satur­day men and women played in the same four-ball best-ball com­pe­ti­tion, so the re­sults are in the men’s notes for to­day – well played Co­ralie, Lisa and Joan. This Satur­day we play for the Novem­ber Monthly Gob­let, our last for the year and a last chance to be in the Medal of Medal­lists play-off. See you all there and please bring a plate.


MEL­BOURNE Cup Day at­tracted a fine field of fil­lies and colts for the sec­ond round of the stroke ver­sus par com­pe­ti­tion, the sec­ond and fi­nal round of the Cooper Cup. With a break to watch the run­ning of the Cup, the play­ers still man­aged to fin­ish the game early. In A divi­sion, Neil Rieck recorded plus three to win on a count­back from Michael Stan­ton, with He­len Ric­cia­rdi third on plus two from Phil Luck­ett on a count­back. Robert Werne, with a sur­pris­ing plus seven, won B divi­sion from Sue Long on plus six, an­other sur­pris­ing score, with Lisa Cooney third on plus one from Paul McCar­ragher on a count­back. Ray Walker (0.58m) won the ap­proach for the men, Lisa Cooney (in the hole) won the com­bined ap­proach and Sue Long (0.44m) the ap­proach for the ladies. Bob Werne led the Chook Run win­ners with nett 29, from Sue Long (30), Phil Luck­ett (31), Joy Cart­ner and Lisa Cooney (32 each) on spins. Next week we play a sin­gle sta­ble­ford af­ter the strain of stroke ver­sus par. The ap­proach shots were won by Keith Rule (in the hole) for the men on one and 10, Kev Sav­age (0.04m) for the com­bined ap­proach on four and 13, He­len Ric­cia­rdi (0.8m) for the women on six and 15. Co­ralie (27 nett) eas­ily led the Chook Run win­ners from Lisa Cooney (31), Ray Bur­rowes, Bob Cochrane, Ian McKay and Nigel Radin (32 each).


A GREAT morn­ing found 22 play­ers take the field for the Novem­ber Mug Day, with Ed Con­nell tak­ing out the day with a 31 and to cheers all-round los­ing 3.5 off his hand­i­cap. One shot back was Chris Fitzsi­mons on 32 and los­ing 2.2 and a shot fur­ther back than that was Do­minic Mete on 33 and los­ing 2.0. Also on 33 were Bob Cochrane and Nigel Ison, who lost on count­back. Two play­ers, Nigel and Bill Kirch­hof, won the least putts with 14 each and Nigel also went on to win the com­bined near­est the pin on the fourth and tak­ing the Golden Cir­cle mea­sure­ment to 0.086m. Col Dennett, al­though bat­tling a bro­ken put­ter, man­aged to get his other clubs work­ing and won the A-grade longest drive and the com­bined near­est the pin on the sixth. Bob Fraser won the B-grade longest drive, with Michael Stan­ton tak­ing out the B-grade ap­proach on the first, and fi­nally the last prize went to Stu­art Aitchi­son, who man­aged the com­bined ap­proach on the sev­enth. Shot of the day went to Paul McCar­ragher, who had the mother of all air swings on the eighth tee – not a cen­time­tre or a cou­ple of cen­time­tres but a good 150cm above the ball, just about throw­ing him­self off his feet in the process, pro­vid­ing a good laugh for his com­pan­ions as they nearly rolled on the ground laugh­ing. Could have blamed just about any­thing from age to in­juries but it was just one of those things that will be for­ever stored in his mem­ory and the mem­ory of those who had a great laugh at his ex­pense but be­ware, he is still the hand­i­cap­per (lol). Next week we will play a stroke and putt over the back nine, tee­ing off at 7.30am. Mem­bers are ad­vised that their chances of scor­ing for the Player of the Year are get­ting short, with scor­ing games to end on Novem­ber 22 to al­low time to pur­chase and have en­graved the tro­phies for this year. The list is still on the board for the Christ­mas game and lunch at Mary­bor­ough and the nom­i­na­tions for po­si­tions on the com­mit­tee, so make sure you check to see if your name is on the ap­pro­pri­ate lists. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
