Wel­come back play­ers!

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Classies Classies - BY ROBERT MUIR

“Wel­come back! Great to see so many faces re­turn,” key lo­cal or­gan­iser of the 2018 BMW Shepparton Se­nior Vic­to­rian Open Cham­pi­onship James Mc­Cully said at the of­fi­cial open­ing, at Black Bull Golf Course at Sil­ver­woods last Tues­day evening.

“To play­ers, spon­sors, it’s pretty spe­cial to see be­tween Yar­ra­wonga Mul­wala Golf Club Re­sort and our­selves we have three of the best cour­ses along the Mur­ray river.

“We’re lucky to have these cour­ses in our beau­ti­ful town.”

James said BMW Shepparton has been the “real back­bone” of the tour­na­ment with their spon­sor­ship and ex­pressed much ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Shepparton BMW’s Prin­ci­pal Dealer Aaron Brain.

“It’s great to be back on board for a third time,” Aaron said. “We’re very proud to as­sist with such a great tour­na­ment.”

Project De­signer Sil­ver­woods, Daniel Smith, told the ap­prox­i­mate 250 peo­ple at the of­fi­cial wel­come/cock­tail func­tion at Black Bull Golf Driv­ing Range that Sil­ver­woods “is com­ing along in leaps and bounds”.

Daniel re­ferred to re­lease of apart­ments of the big Sebel project ahead of con­struc­tion is a great sign. “It’s just go­ing to be fan­tas­tic - a show­case not only for Yar­ra­wonga but for the re­gion,” he said.

Golf­ing fans were en­thralled at the 85 me­tre $1,000 Shoot Out by 10 pro­fes­sion­als, in­clud­ing our own James Mc­Cully.

Steve Con­ran from Orange, NSW won the event. The 51-year-old loved re­turn­ing, for his se­cond Shepparton BMW Se­nior Vic­to­rian Open.

“They’re so nice cour­ses here,” he told the Yar­ra­wonga Chron­i­cle. “It’s just a plea­sure to play them. You are spoilt here!” The great Pe­ter Se­nior chipped in: “It’s nice to play qual­ity golf cour­ses. It’s great to be back.” Other en­ter­tain­ment at the wel­come func­tion was pro­vided by Sam Lude­man’s ‘Sam Sam But Dif­fer­ent’ trio from Mel­bourne, with the band’s pop rock, cov­ers and acous­tic-feel mu­sic again prov­ing pop­u­lar.

De­li­cious, tasty fin­ger food and bev­er­ages com­ple­mented a won­der­ful wel­come to the big, award win­ning tour­na­ment.
