Nagam­bie

Wed­nes­day saw only seven play­ers for a stable­ford round.

The win­ner, with a score of 36 points, was Sue Verge.

The nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion was won by Jane Bow with 21 points.

The 18-hole balls went to Verge and Ronda Richards and the nine-hole balls went to Bow and Richards on a count back from Verge.

Near­est-the-pin on the eighth was An­nette Mills. There was no near­est-thepin win­ner on the 13th.

To­day will be a stroke round for the monthly medal, the fourth round of the par three, so­cial club, sil­ver spoon and we will have to count putts, mak­ing it a busy day. Next Wed­nes­day will be a par round. The chicken run on Thurs­day was won by Alby Seenan with a +4.

Shane McCormick won near­est-the-pin on the 13th.

To­mor­row will be a stroke round on the front nine.

On Satur­day there were eight play­ers in the uni­sex com­pe­ti­tion on the front nine.

This was won by Gary Bow 41 (7.5) 33.5 nett. There was no near­est-the-pin.

Sadly last week for­mer mem­ber Sue Dun­stone passed away. We pass on our con­do­lences to Max and fam­ily.

The mer­cury was well below freez­ing for the July monthly medal on Sun­day.

The day’s win­ner, col­lect­ing his third monthly medal of the sea­son, was Trevor Price.

Price shot 87-16 (71) to win in a count back from fel­low strong man, the fan­tas­tic Phil Hage­man. Hage­man also posted 87-16 (71). Next best was Dar­rel Bald­win who’s con­tin­u­ally fin­ished in the top rank­ing places with some con­sis­tent golf through­out the sea­son.

The near­est-the-pin prizes went to Glen Evans on the third and eighth, Trevor Red­fern on the 13th and Jeremy Ezard on the 16th.

The reg­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion next week will be moved to Satur­day with a 9 am to 9.30 am tee off.

This is to make way for the Goul­burn Val­ley pen­nant be­ing hosted by Nagam­bie Golf Club on Sun­day.

Cold con­di­tions ac­counted for the low num­bers on Satur­day.

As a re­sult there was a uni­sex stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion won by David Ful­lager on 34.

Hot on his heels was Lau­ris Tr­us­cott on 33.

Both play­ers were ball win­ners but noone claimed the near­est-the-pin ball on the 14th.

Last Tues­day Mau­reen King had a ter­rific round of 35 points to col­lect the win­ner’s prize.

King and Mar­lene Hull, by count back over Dee Wright, were both ball win­ners. Ful­lager won the near­est-the-pin. This Satur­day will be a stroke round and the third round of the sil­ver spoon for the ladies.

Mem­bers have been ad­vised that we will be host­ing the Vet­er­ans Tour­na­ment on July 13 so some as­sis­tance will be re­quired with cater­ing.

In the mean­time, good golf­ing to ev­ery­one.

Last week’s game was stable­ford and the women’s win­ner was Sue McCall (15) on 35 points.

The ex­tra com­pe­ti­tion was the se­cond shot on the 12th hole and that was won by Dale Stu­art.

The ball pool went to McCall and Stu­art with 34 points.

In the men’s com­pe­ti­tion Paul Niebling (13) was the win­ner with 38 points on a count back from Bill Brock.

Near­est-the-pins were only claimed on the 12th and 17th holes by Brock and Phil Jarvis re­spec­tively.

A score of 33 points was needed to get a ball.

The Fri­day night so­cial six holes were played over holes 10-15.

Cooper Lubeck (16) scored 13 points to take the hon­ours for the evening.

All the play­ers were out in the af­ter­noon on Satur­day for the monthly medal and a com­bined golf day for the men and women.

It was prob­a­bly just as well as the cold and the frost would have made golf­ing very dif­fi­cult in the early morn­ing, it was chilly enough at 11.30 am.

The men and women go­ing out in mixed groups did pro­duce some in­ter­est­ing re­sults in the scores but ev­ery­one en­joyed the day.

With most also stay­ing for the pre­sen­ta­tions and fish-and-chip sup­per it was a great at­mos­phere to cel­e­brate with the win­ners, talk about the highs and laugh about the lows of the day.

The men’s win­ner was Vin­nie Hall who won B-grade and the Ge­off Head Memo­rial July medal with a nice score of 89-20 (69).

The medal win was on a count back from Peter Nel­son who had the best scratch score of the day but had to set­tle for only the A-grade win with his score of 76-7 (69).

The near­est-the-pins for the men went to Brock on the sixth which was just short of an ace.

The other three near­est-the-pins on the fourth, 12th and 17th were won by Mark Foun­tain who set the tar­gets early.

No one in the field fol­low­ing could knock him off.

The drive and pitch on the eighth went to Di Byrne and the 15th went to Foun­tain.

A score of net 73 was re­quired for a ball in the men’s com­pe­ti­tion.

The best score of the day over­all how­ever, went to Byrne who won the July medal for the women with a ter­rific score of 84-17 (67).

She cred­ited this great score to ac­cu­rate putting and thor­oughly im­pressed her play­ing part­ners for the day.

They’ll prob­a­bly be lin­ing up for lessons next week.

The near­est-the-pin on the 17th went to Liz Gee and the ball pool went to Byrne, Irene Davey and Stu­art with net 71.

The Fri­day night so­cial six holes this week will be over holes one to six and the game is stable­ford.

On Satur­day it is the se­cond round of the win­ter cup for both the men and the women which is a stable­ford round.
