On Sun­day the club hosted the Seymour Health char­ity golf day to raise money for the lo­cal hospi­tal.

The long­est drive for the men was Shane Kemp and for the women it was Tina Gribben.

The straight­est drive for the men was Greg Pell and for the women it was An­drea Richards.

The suc­cess for a day like this is greatly at­trib­uted to the volunteers who or­gan­ise and pre­pare for the day and all the as­sis­tance on the day.

With great sup­port from sev­eral lo­cal busi­nesses and of course the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the play­ers, it helped to raise funds for the Seymour Hospi­tal which is a ter­rific as­set to Seymour and the district.

Thanks to all who con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the day.

The Fri­day so­cial nine holes this week is stable­ford on holes 1-9.

Please note there is a syl­labus change for Satur­day and both the men and the women will be play­ing par this week and the fol­low­ing Satur­day (De­cem­ber 15) is the two-per­son am­brose, any com­bi­na­tion.

The monthly medal on Sun­day at Nagam­bie was tough go­ing with a blus­tery south wind swirling across the course and sticky flies mak­ing low scor­ing dif­fi­cult.

This how­ever did not de­ter the day’s win­ner Glen Evans bag­ging his first monthly medal at the club.

Evans shot a 83-13-70 with a solid dis­play of driving and good iron play around the greens.

Run­ner-up for the sec­ond week in a row went to Shaun Bryant with a round of two halves, a 46 front nine then a even with the card 36 back nine sign­ing for 82-11-71, show­ing what he can do when he gets it right.

Next best score were Alby Seenan and Shaun Spicer with nett 71s.

The near­est-the-pins were hard go­ing due to the un­pre­dictable wind gusts with only the 13th and 16th be­ing achieved; Dean Brown won 13 and Glen Evans’ good day con­tin­ued with an ap­plaud­able strike on to the 16th.

Next week’s golf is the an­nual cross coun­try event on a com­pos­ite course with the Ray Cas­sar Me­mo­rial tro­phy on of­fer; of­fice duty will be G. Bow and in the bar B. Le­vis­ton.
