Six brave the rain for Beech­worth’s weekly stable­ford

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - INDIGO SPORT -


SIX play­ers were caught hook, line and sinker on Sun­day, yet they were any­thing but gut­ted that the Beech­worth Golf Club was hold­ing a Stable­ford event.

It was like shoot­ing fish in a bar­rel for Dave Atkins (28) who bat­tered the rest of the field with a score of 38 points, while Gary Pool (13) also took the bait on 36.

Those who were kissed and thrown back in were Peter Smith (19) 35, David Lang (20) 33, Brian Cro­p­ley (36) 32, and Andy Croome (19) 29, with Peter also reel­ing in a Near­est the Pin on the 10th.

Three of our mem­bers also carp-ooled to Tar­rawingee on Sun­day for their An­nual Tour­na­ment with Bren­ton Pool and Col Carmody mea­sur­ing up well for the 9 hole prizes.

Next Sun­day, play­ers will be out to tackle another round of Stable­ford at Beech­worth from 1pm, with Yackan­dan­dah to host its An­nual Tour­na­ment so try to fil­let into your sched­ule.

Last Wed­nes­day, six ladies were in con­tention for the Tony Green­hill Me­mo­rial Tro­phy, with the stroke round dou­bling as Oc­to­ber’s Monthly Medal.

Adding a piece of sil­ver­ware to her col­lec­tion was Lor­raine Poyntz (29) who played per­fect hand­i­cap golf by fin­ish­ing with 70 nett, with Co­ral Ward (19) close be­hind on 72.

79 nett proved a pop­u­lar score with Jan Lang (23), Gail Smith (17) and Glenda Mar­shall (13) be­ing all tied, while Pam Nankervis (25) just snuck into the 80s.

In other news, Beech­worth’s own Glenda Mar­shall has added another ac­co­lade to her al­ready glo­ri­ous 2017 by win­ning the NEDLGA Merit Award.

Fi­nally, the front nine posed the lat­est chal­lenge in Twi­light golf, as 14 play­ers ven­tured out on Thurs­day.

The chal­lenge was well and truly ac­cepted by Tyson Carey who knocked up a mas­sive 25 points, earn­ing him­self the highly soughtafter cash prize and a no­tice­able re­duc­tion in hand­i­cap.

The Hiber­nian Ho­tel re­luc­tantly handed over another voucher to Dy­lan Pool who fin­ished on 23 points, and it will be slightly ear­lier in the day when Col Carmody makes use of The Gran­ite Café, af­ter beat­ing Dayne Carey on a count­back for third on 19 points.

One good shot was enough for John Shee­han to take home the Drum­mond Golf Near­est the Pin on the 7th and Gary Pool went one fur­ther to chip in on the 9th.

No shots at all were re­quired to find a win­ner in the raf­fle, with the Beech­worth Butch­ery voucher go­ing to Brian Cro­p­ley.
