Narrogin Observer - - Observer Sport - Ryan O’Dea

It was a big three days of golf last week­end in Nar­ro­gin, start­ing with the Holden Scram­ble.

A field of 80 teed off for the scram­ble in cold con­di­tions with the course play­ing very long af­ter the much-needed rains.

With two chip-ins on the last two holes the Yeal­er­ing com­bi­na­tion of Yogi Melvin, Graeme Man­ton, Jimmy Hamilton and Tim Cowcher took out the event with 571⁄ 4.

In sec­ond were Phil Hud­son, Phil Hoskin , Mike Clarke and Mick An­ton on 58, fol­lowed by Wayne Fran­cis, David Grout, Bill Ry­bar­czyk and Carol Hardie on 591⁄ 2.

On Satur­day mem­bers played for the Richard and Judy Reid monthly mugs.

In the A-grade, Kim Der­byshire man­aged not to hit any­one else’s ball on his way to 70 net to win from Tom Hardie on 72 and Shane Thorn­ton on 73.

In the B-grade, Graeme Daw­son se­cured his sec­ond mug for the year with a 68 net from Steve Wil­liams and Phil Hud­son both on 71.

It was a close fin­ish in the ladies with Si­mone Lock­yer win­ning in a count­back from Sue Short on 77 with Julie Chitty and Leonie Kirby one fur­ther back on 78.

The week­end fin­ished off with the mixed four­somes cham­pi­onships spon­sored by Nar­ro­gin Hay.

The ever-re­li­able com­bi­na­tion of Grace Zaba­jnik and Wayne Palumbo proved too strong again to win by seven shots on 125 Gross.

Sec­ond went to Brett Coxon and Si­mone Lock­yer on 132, fol­lowed by Ron­nie Cop­pock and Leonie Kirby on 133.

Be­cause of the Great South­ern Cham­pi­onships in Katan­ning this week­end there will be sweep­stake rounds on both Satur­day and Sun­day.

Fri­day’s nine-hole scroungers tees off at 2.15pm with ev­ery­one wel­come.
