Mer­rigum golf:

The Tatura Guardian - - Sport -

Glenn and Kim of New­ton’s Par­cel Ser­vice put on an­other sen­sa­tional day of golf at Mer­rigum on Satur­day.

Along with their sup­port­ive spon­sors, they pro­vided amaz­ing prizes and en­sured no­body went home a loser, and that is say­ing some­thing given the size of the field that con­tested the pairs am­brose event.

The amount of work put in by Kim and Glenn was ev­i­dent the mo­ment you set foot in the club­house, with ta­bles full of the day’s tro­phies.

The course was in fan­tas­tic con­di­tion thanks to the club’s hard-work­ing vol­un­teers, so all golfers needed to com­plete the day was good weather.

After two great days of weather on Thurs­day and Fri­day, the fore­cast rain for Satur­day threat­ened to de­rail the day. For­tu­nately, it did not come to fruition and the day, for the most part, re­mained rea­son­ably mild.

Cory Berghofer and Clare Do­herty were in hot form and eas­ily won the day with a score of 73-13-60, a mas­sive four shots ahead of their near­est ri­vals.

Berghofer is the most con­sis­tent golfer in the club at the mo­ment, de­spite not play­ing as reg­u­larly as most, and Do­herty has shown she is be­com­ing a re­ally good golfer.

As a team, they proved to be a for­mi­da­ble com­bi­na­tion.

Run­ners-up were J. Ker­rins and B. Kalder with 64 nett, while Simon Do­herty and Zaylee Ne­wham fin­ished in third place with 64.75.

It was after that the log­jam oc­curred, with lit­tle sep­a­rat­ing quite a few of the pairs.

Winners of the women’s event were Sue Turn­bull and S. Cur­ran with 76.75.

Men’s and women’s near­est the pin winners were Bill Brayand Tash Do­herty (sixth), Simon and Tash Do­herty (ninth), Berghofer and Sue Turn­bull (12th) and Mick Mulc­ahy and Ni­cole Do­herty (14th).

The long­est drives were won by Bren­dan Spit­tles and Ne­wham and the near­est sec­ond shots on the 18th were taken out by R. Stan­nard and Jan Chris­tou.

Once again the Mer­rigum Golf Club is in­debted to Glenn and Kim and New­ton’s Par­cel Ser­vice for the ef­fort they both put into mak­ing the day a suc­cess, not only with tro­phies but with the num­ber of vis­i­tors they at­tracted to the club for the day. It is very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

Satur­day’s event is par, so come along and chal­lenge yourself.
