Sey­mour

In an­other hon­our for a Sey­mour Golf Club mem­ber, Ian Richard­son was named the men’s Dal­housie Dis­trict player of the year af­ter the fi­nal men’s tour­na­ment at the start of De­cem­ber.

It is a great achieve­ment to win this ti­tle be­cause not only to do you have to play in a lot of tour­na­ments in the dis­trict dur­ing the year but you have to play well too.

Con­grat­u­la­tions go to Ian for his com­mit­ment to dis­trict golf and for his con­sis­tently good golf dur­ing the year.

In the nor­mal weekly events the women played stable­ford on Wednes­day and it was a Mt Mace­don vis­i­tor who won the day.

Chris Do­herty (18) had the top score of 38 points to win the day.

The ex­tra com­pe­ti­tion was the best even holes and this was also won by Do­herty with 19 points.

The ball pool went to Do­herty, Shirley Wright and Ricky Rick­man with 35 points.

In the men’s com­pe­ti­tion on Wednes­day, Stormy Tem­pest (16) had a stand-out score of 43 points for his win.

The next best score was Graeme Drum­mond (10) with a 41 points.

The near­est-the-pins went to Drum­mond on the fourth, Greg Pell on the sixth, Michael Pap­worth on the 12th and Gary Neville on the 17th.

A score of 36 points on a count back was needed for a ball.

Stubby Byrnes (30) had a fan­tas­tic score of 25 points to win the mixed nine holes.

The run­ner-up was Phil Block with 17 points.

Dun­can Chisholm and Ann Wil­son also made the ball pool with scores of 16 and 15 re­spec­tively.

The Fri­day night so­cial nine holes was par over holes 7-15 this week.

John Cal­laghan (13) seems to be the Fri­day night spe­cial­ist win­ning again with a great score of +5.

There were two play­ers tied for sec­ond, Gary Wright and John Mundy, each with +2.

On Satur­day, the men’s cap­tain Mark Foun­tain and his wife Tina gen­er­ously spon­sored a twop­er­son am­brose event which was a nice so­cial day in the lead up to Christ­mas.

Un­for­tu­nately the weather did not get in to the spirit of the day with the rain bring­ing a tem­po­rary de­lay in the mid­dle of the round, but in the end teams did get their rounds com­pleted.

The win­ners in the mixed com­pe­ti­tion were Paula Brit­ton (15) and Bill Brock (12) who scored 74-6.75 = 67.25.

The run­ners-up were Di Stam­mers (20) and Jeff Smith (25) with 80-11.25 = 68.75.

In the men’s re­sults, Ian Richard­son (6) and Pe­ter Nel­son (6) had an as­tound­ing score of 61-3 = 58 to win.

The run­ners-up were John Boruch (11) and Lachy Mullins (17) with 70-7 =63.

The near­est-the-pins for the men were Nel­son on the fourth, John Cal­laghan on the sixth, Luke Mered­ith on the 12th and Kevin Mul­vaney on the 17th.

Sue McCall was the only woman to get a near­est-the-pin and that was on the 17th.

The Fri­day so­cial nine holes this week is stable­ford on holes 10-18.

Satur­day is a stable­ford round for both men and women.

With this the fi­nal re­port be­fore Christ­mas, may you all en­joy a great fes­tive sea­son and per­haps get some fun games of golf in too.

The Wa­ter Boy Cup spon­sored by Lind­say Hall brought a week of solid rain with it, al­most ren­der­ing the wa­ter boy re­dun­dant, with the course look­ing the green­est it’s ever been for the time of year.

Light show­ers were cross­ing the course at the start of play which was go­ing to make scor­ing dif­fi­cult, but this was not the case for Graeme Galvin who re­turned a scin­til­lat­ing round of 43 stable­ford points.

Galvin’s long-hit­ting and crisp irons were far su­pe­rior to the rest of the field’s play al­low­ing him to take the win by a com­fort­able four-point mar­gin.

Run­ner-up af­ter a so­journ to the land of the long white cloud was club pres­i­dent Jeff Lod­ding com­pil­ing 39 points; the next best score went to Michael Roberts smash­ing out 36.

The near­est-the-pins went to Shaun Spicer on the eighth, vis­it­ing Tatura golfer Daryl Har­ri­son col­lect­ing the 13th and Dean Brown go­ing close to the ace on the 16th.

A re­minder to all mem­bers of Nagam­bie Golf Club that the

Nagam­bie

an­nual gen­eral meet­ing is on tonight at 7 pm.

Thanks to Am­bu­lance Vic­to­ria for the train­ing pro­vided to mem­bers on Sun­day — an in­for­ma­tive and well-pre­sented ses­sion that was much ap­pre­ci­ated.

This week’s golf will be par event with B. Cryer in the of­fice and J. Mills in the bar.

Women’s golf on Wednes­day was a stroke com­pe­ti­tion and monthly medal.

Win­ner of A, B and C-grade and monthly medal was Irene Keogh with 100-25-75 nett.

Nine-hole win­ner was Jane Bow with 54-19-35 nett.

18-hole balls went to Keogh 75, and Ronda Richards 77.

Nine-hole balls went to Bow 35, Keogh 35.5, and Richards 37.5.

To­day will be four­somes and Christ­mas break-up lunch.

Our next com­pe­ti­tion will be a stable­ford-monthly medal event on Jan­uary 9.

Due to the in­clement weather there was no chicken run com­pe­ti­tion on Thurs­day.

Merry Christ­mas and happy and safe new year to all Nagam­bie Golf Club mem­bers and their fam­i­lies.
