El­lis takes out sum­mer cup


HEATHCOTE Golf Club had a busy week of ac­tion with the ladies and men play­ing var­i­ous com­pe­ti­tions.

The ladies played a sta­ble­ford event on Satur­day which formed one round of the Sum­mer Cham­pi­onships.

Sue Green must be in­spired by this tro­phy event as she has now won it twice from as many starts. Sue’s 34 points se­cured her the vic­tory with Jan Cases 32 se­cur­ing her run­ner-up spot via a count­back from He­len Car­lin. It was nice to see Jan back in fine form.

The Sum­mer Cham­pi­onship lead­ers at present are: Dot Trott 130pts, Carol Stu­art 128, Mar­garet Sims 127 and He­len Car­lin 124. A ti­tanic strug­gle is en­su­ing for the last two rounds.

A group of 22 men teed off for the Monthly Medal and fi­nal round of the Sum­mer Cup.

Daniel Pianta had an ex­cel­lent round of 75-5-70 to be the divi­sion one and medal win­ner. Ron Blach­ford had a good day, tak­ing out divi­sion two with 102-31-71.

Ball win­ners were Kris Mueck 70, Terry Shiels 73, Adrian King 73 and Greg Long 74. Adrian King added to his golf ball col­lec­tion tak­ing out NTPs on both the 13th and 16th holes.

At the 18th hole Kris Mueck won the A grade NTP and Bryce Pianta was clos­est in B grade. Garry Boyes re­tained his “Mr Pres­i­dent” ti­tle but added the less flat­ter­ing NAGA la­bel by virtue of his 111-24-87.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ger­ard El­lis for his win in the Sum­mer Cup with three good rounds for a to­tal score of 207! Sportscover Vic Ju­nior Masters: The Sportscover Vic Ju­nior Masters was played over 72 holes at Churchill and Waverly Golf Clubs late last month.

Heathcote Golf Club’s Molly McLean played out­stand­ingly to place first in the Un­der 12 girls nett and sec­ond in the Un­der 12 gross be­hind a girl from Sin­ga­pore off a +1 hand­i­cap.

In the over­all event con­tested by 55 girls up to the Un­der 16 class, Molly fin­ished 37th in the gross and a very cred­itable 16th in the nett.

Molly hasn’t even turned 12 yet and is al­ready play­ing off a Golf Aus­tralia hand­i­cap of 8.5.

She cer­tainly is shap­ing up to be a very scary com­peti­tor! Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 31: Nine ladies played a sta­ble­ford round on a cool and very windy morn­ing. Lynne Fouracre made fair weather of the con­di­tions, com­pil­ing one of her best com­pe­ti­tion rounds at Heathcote. The field was no match for Lynnes con­sum­mate 40 pts and de­spite Dawn Hud­sons return to form scor­ing a solid 34 pts, she was forced to set­tle for sec­ond place. Joyce Saf­stroms tidy 31 pts se­cured her third po­si­tion. Thurs­day Fe­bru­ary 1: Twenty men ar­rived for the sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with Tony Hunter the best of the pack scor­ing 39 pts.
