Lachy impresses in juniors



Twelve juniors took to the course for the second round of the junior six-hole club championsh­ips on Saturday.

Once again it was Lachy O'Brien coming in the with the low score of the day of 28 off-thestick, giving him the scratch win.

Owen Smith was second and Frankie Eagles came in third.

Max Harding won the handicap with Rayden Hannigan second and Kevin Traynor coming in third.

Traynor’s magnificen­t drive on the seventh earned him the Bank Street Wood Fired Pizza voucher this week.

Nine kids are in the mix so far, having played two of the three rounds required to be eligible.

There are two rounds to go, so hopefully a few more players will qualify — remember, it’s the best three scores from the four rounds that count.

Lachy is currently leading the way from Max and Owen, while Kevin is leading the handicap followed by Rayden and Taylor White.

Round three is next week, so we hope to see a good roll-up of juniors.

A couple of our “older” juniors — Hudson Black, Lindsay Smith and Campbell Smith (emergency), have teamed up with players from Hidden Valley to form a junior pennant team.

They played Ballarat District at Hidden Valley and came out with a tied match overall, which was a great result and experience for the boys.

Saturday afternoon saw four men and two ladies play a stableford round off the short tees.

It was heavy going as the course was sprayed earlier in the week which meant it couldn’t be cut.

We played the front nine twice and Lyn C claimed the winner’s voucher with 37 points, two ahead of runner-up Mark Hannigan.

Tim Batten was a few further back and received a ball in the ball comp.

Hannigan hit a good shot into the seventh for the D & P ball, but the nearest the pin ball remained with the club.

Dale Smith won yet another Avenel Meats meat tray, leaving us all to ponder how he does it. Pure luck of course.

Friday’s twilight golf was well attended again and Shane Black continued his good form, scoring 18 points to collect the “cash” in a countback from Ollie Aitken.

Grant Eagles made an impact on his return, scoring 16 points to claim a ball, again decided by countback — Batten being the unlucky one. A few reminders:

The AGM is tonight (Wednesday, October 12) at 7.30pm at the clubhouse. Please register your apology if you’re unable to attend.

Presentati­on evening will be on Saturday, October 22.

Get your tables organised for the Melbourne Cup Calcutta on Monday, October 31, cold buffet tea beforehand — members are asked to please supply a salad.

Saturday golf will continue as long as there is enough interest — the course will be fantastic after it’s cut so get out there and enjoy it.

In the meantime, good golfing to everyone.


The sunshine brought the Nagambie members out with 37 players teeing it up for a stableford event.

The course had dried out sufficient­ly for some good scores to be posted, but the rough being long, made it rather difficult for others.

Paul Cox was the winning golfer compiling a well crafted 37 points to win by three.

Cox has taken a liking to the Nagambie course and this has shown in his result.

Runner-up was Graeme Galvin, crunching his way around as usual.

Galvin’s length was on display with him completing his day with 34 points.

Rounding out the top three was Dave Fullager featuring in the top end of results once again, this time being nutted in a countback to finish third on 34 points.

Cox was the only nearest the pin recipient claiming both the 13th and 16th with some fantastic iron play.

Next week’s golf at Nagambie will be a stroke event as well as the gold medal play off for the 12 medallists from throughout the season.
