Hot scores on course
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.
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.
