Great suc­cess for YMGCR Four­somes Rep­re­sen­ta­tives Glenys Dur­rant and Jan Foot, in the fi­nal of the Doris Cham­bers Cup held at Sanc­tu­ary Lakes. They were run­ners-up with 35 points, the win­ners were Judy Lang­ford and Jac Sur­man (Wodonga) with 36 points.

‘A gen­tle 3-wood’ from the se­cond tee-stand on the Lake Course at Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort re­sulted in Max Fraser’s first ever hole-in-one, on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 5.

“With bunkers both sides of the green, I was think­ing: ‘Just go straight Max’. It landed short of the green, bounced up and rolled straight in,” he told the Yar­ra­wonga Chron­i­cle of his ap­prox­i­mate 135m shot.

“I was very ec­static, one of those things you don’t be­lieve you’ve done.”

Af­ter re­tir­ing in the lo­gis­tics field of a light­ing com­pany in Mel­bourne, Max and wife Ber­nadette moved to Yar­ra­wonga two years ago. Yar­ra­wonga/Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort is the first club he has joined and he loves his golf.

“I play with a great bunch of blokes, who were all very com­pli­men­tary of my hole-in­one,” the 71-year-old nine-hole golfer off a 14 hand­i­cap for the nine-hol­ers said.
