Strong and bold Ambrose play
THERE’S one day in September that we want to remember and that was Saturday morning at the Beechworth Golf Club as nine players showed their colours in a special three Person Ambrose.
Like the tiger of old, Andy Croome, Darryl Rowe and Joe Forster were strong and bold, roaring home with a nett score of 56.
There was nothing to crow about for the other teams as Brenton Pool, Jamie Dolny and Col Carmody finished on 58, while Dylan Pool, Simon Carracher and Graeme Pool were further back on 58.
In any weather you will see Simon with a grin as he hit it closest on the 7th, while Andy risked head and skin for his Nearest the Pin on the 10th.
Ten players were out there and at ‘em again on Sunday, showing their might in a Stableford event.
In a league of his own was Zane Howard (21) who stormed home to defeat David Lang (22) on a countback on 41 points, giving the don’t argue to Brenton Pool (12) on 40.
Just like in the NRL, the bunker caused some confusion and frustration with the rest of the field including Simon Carracher (19) 37, Dave Atkins (28) 36, Dylan Pool (4) 32, Col Carmody (24) 31, Andy Croome (16) 30, Jamie Dolny (16) 29, and Brian Cropley (36) 28.
Jamie got over the try line with his Nearest the Pin on the 7th, while Dave converted nicely on the 17th.
On Wednesday, five ladies paraded their way around, each having the goal to win September’s Monthly Medal.
Qualifying for the Grand Final (Medal of Medallists) was Gail Smith (18) who hit the showers after posting a score of 75 nett, with Jan Lang (24) wondering what could have been on 76.
Those who were deemed to have shown insufficient intent to scoring well were Lorraine Poyntz (28) 77, Pam Nankervis (25) 78, and Glenda Marshall (13) 82.
The good thing about golf is that there is always next week, and in this case, the ladies will head up to Mitta for their Annual Bowl.
The men, however, will be marching as one on the road to the Holy Grail again this Sunday with October’s Monthly Medal kicking off at 1pm.
Note the later change due to Daylight Savings Time, and this also sees the beginning of Twilight competitions which start this Thursday October 5 with hit-off between 4-5pm.
