Hot scores on course

Seymour Telegraph - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Sey­mour

A more low-key week on the Sey­mour course this week, al­though not in the scor­ing with some re­ally hot scores com­ing out of the com­pe­ti­tions.

The women’s Wed­nes­day com­pe­ti­tion, as al­ways, started the events and Dale Stu­art (12) was the win­ner with a re­spectable 36 points.

The ex­tra com­pe­ti­tion was the sec­ond shot on the 12th hole and Ricky Rick­man won that.

The ball pool went to Stu­art and Lynne Mu­nari with 35 points on a count back.

In the men’s com­pe­ti­tion, Peter Tem­pest (18) must have hardly put a foot wrong when he had a mas­sive 45 points to win.

The next best score was Bill Ben­nett (11) with 40 points.

The near­est-the-pins went to Tem­pest on the fourth, Ben­nett on the sixth, Mark Foun­tain on the 12th and Vin­nie Hall on the 17th.

A score of 38 points was needed to get into the ball pool.

The Fri­day night so­cial nine holes was played on holes 16-6 and it was the third round of the Old Cobb.

Gary Wright (15) had a nice 22 points to win and Ian Stu­art (21) was the run­ner up with 20 points.

It was a par round for the men’s Satur­day com­pe­ti­tion and the best score of the day was in B-grade with two play­ers man­ag­ing to achieve it.

Jerry Ben­der (22) had a fan­tas­tic +5 and was the win­ner of the count back against Don Gee with the same great score.

The A-grade win­ner was Mark Foun­tain (9) also with a pretty good score of +4.

The near­est-the-pin on the fourth was John Mundy, on the sixth Foun­tain was the clos­est, the 12th went to Wayne Evans and the 17th was won by Jeff Smith.

The drive and pitch on the eighth went to Irene Davey and the 15th to Foun­tain.

A score of +3 got you into the ball pool.

The women com­peted for the Novem­ber monthly medal on Satur­day and Pat Fer­ris found some ter­rific form to win the medal and B-grade with her top score of 87-20=67.

The A-grade win­ner was Jane Fletcher with 74-4=70 on a count back from Paula Brit­ton whose con­so­la­tion prize was claim­ing the near­est-thepin on the 17th.

The ball pool went to Fer­ris, Fletcher, Paula Brit­ton, Irene Davey and Glenda Woods with net 73 on a count back.

We are ex­pect­ing some wet weather early in the week but hope­fully this will perk up the course ready for the week’s com­pe­ti­tions.

The Fri­day so­cial nine holes is sta­ble­ford on 1-9 and is the fourth round of the Old Cobb Tro­phy.

Satur­day is sta­ble­ford for both the men and the women.

Nagam­bie

It was the clos­ing of the win­ter sea­son and open­ing of the sum­mer sea­son, and an am­brose 12-hole com­pe­ti­tion was played.

Win­ners were Jenny Jeong, Irene Keogh and Cathy Lawrence with 53-16

Near­est-the-pin on the eighth and 13th was Sue Verge.

Balls went to Jeong, Keogh and Lawrence.

To­day will be a stroke event. Please re­mem­ber it will be 8.15 am as­sem­bly for a 8.30 am start.

The chicken run on Thurs­day saw 27 play­ers play a stroke com­pe­ti­tion on the front nine.

The win­ner was Ross Mur­ray with 51-18-33 nett.

To­mor­row will be sta­ble­ford to be played on the back nine. Near­est-the-pin will be on the 13th hole.

Terry Lowis con­tin­ues his run of good form with a +6 par score at Nagam­bie on Sun­day.

Lowis’ last at­tempt at the par for­mat re­sulted in a po­si­tion on the best card of the year hon­our board, with this score most likely head­ing the same way.

Run­ner-up was Glen Evans with an un­lucky +5, a score that would win par most weeks, closely fol­lowed by Peter Lawrence +4 and Greg White­man+3.

The near­est-the-pins went to Phil Hage­man on the third, Phil Neville eye­balling the 13th and Jeremy Ezard trundling one up to the 16th.

Fri­day will be our first Sum­mer am­brose se­ries event, with hit off from 4.30 pm while on Sun­day golf at Nagam­bie will be a monthly medal.

On of­fice duty will be D. Brown and in the bar P. Neville.
