Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

PEP­PER­MINT Grove chief ex­ec­u­tive John Mer­rick can feel on par with the com­pe­ti­tion af­ter com­ing sev­enth in his over-65 age bracket at the Royal Mel­bourne Golf Club Masters dur­ing his hol­i­days last month.

It was the first time the for­mer coun­try shire ad­min­is­tra­tor had tack­led the com­pe­ti­tion fol­low­ing a friend's in­vi­ta­tion.

Mr Mer­rick said he had a “very av­er­age” score on the course where the “greens were hard and very, very fast”.
