Member scores Dalhousie title
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.

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.

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.
