Wearne takes out chal­lenge match

McIvor Times - - SPORTS -

HEATHCOTE Golf Club’s Tris­ten Wearne took out di­vi­sion one of the an­nual chal­lenge match be­tween Euroa and Heathcote on Wed­nes­day.

Eight ladies trav­elled to Euroa where they were greeted with a lovely cuppa and a warm club­house.

The game started at 9.30am with a mix of two Euroa ladies and one Heathcote lady play­ing a stable­ford round.

The course was rather wet un­der­foot in places but the greens played beau­ti­fully.

Wearne won di­vi­sion one with a won­der­ful score of 37 points. The re­main­der of the win­ners and run­ners up were from Euroa.

The raf­fle was drawn with a cou­ple of the Heathcote ladies in the win­ning group.

Lunch was sup­plied by the ladies from Euroa with the club­house dec­o­rated in pink for their an­nual ‘Pink Day’ for breast cancer.

The chal­lenge tro­phy was won by Euroa this year by a soli­tary point.

The chal­lenge matches be­tween the two clubs have been held an­nu­ally since 2011 with Heathcote win­ning four times. Sin­cere thanks are ex­tended to the ladies who trav­elled to Euroa. We are cer­tain they all en­joyed a lovely so­cial day.

Next year Euroa will be vis­it­ing Heathcote on a date yet to be de­cided.

On Thurs­day, a stroke com­pe­ti­tion at­tracted 20 men.

Greg Long took out di­vi­sion one with 84-16-68 while Tony Hunter se­cured the win in di­vi­sion two with 90-20-70.

Ball win­ners were: Son Quach 71, Kris Mueck 73 and Adrian King 74. Brian Davis won the 18th hole NTP and su­per­pin and Garry Boyes caught a par ball again.

Martin Sims took home the en­cour­age­ment award with 108-25-83.

On Satur­day, six ladies played a stable­ford event with Daphne Hall con­tin­u­ing her win­ning streak with 32 points from run­ner-up Carol Stu­art on 30 points.

It was nice to see a re­freshed He­len Car­lin back from her hol­i­days up north.

The mens stroke event had 21 starters in­clud­ing two vis­i­tors.

Larry Maxwell's 77-6-71 was suf­fi­cient for the win in A grade; Brian Davis won in B grade with 85-16-69; while Garry Boyes took out C grade with 98-26-72. Marc Chap­pel was the best visi­tor with 85-16-69.

Ball win­ners were: Mitchell Hogg 72, David Clous­ton 72, Dean Jones 72 and Greg Long 72. Birdie ball went to Marc Chap­pel (8th) and a par ball went to Terry Shiels on the 18th.

NTPs were Dean Jones (13th), Mitchell Hogg (16th) and at the 18th hole: Larry Maxwell (A grade) and Terry Shiels (C grade and su­per­pin). Ge­off Cut­ting and Ron Blach­ford shared the en­cour­age­ment award.
