The Tatura Guardian - - Sport - — Bryan Miller — Foo­zle

The SKM Priv­i­lege Cup for June was won by Mark Jenk­ins on Satur­day with 41 sta­ble­ford points.

Jenk­ins won B-grade and Jeff Baker was run­ner-up with 38.

Garry Rus­sell won A-grade with 39 points while Bruce Gross, keen to avail him­self of another Priv­i­lege Cup, was run­ner-up with 38.

Ge­off Coola­han won the Baird and Devine golf ball for near­est-the-pin on the third hole, David Roberts won on the sixth, Garry Rus­sell won on the Plan­right ninth and John Keller won the Hunter Ru­ral ball on the 14th hole.

The jack­pot on the ninth was won nar­rowly by Julie Gregg.

Balls down-the-line went to John Keller and Peter Heath­man 36; John Deller and Brad Deane 35; Brian Coe, John Fan­ning and Colin Bar­low 34; and Ray Flett 33.

Sun­day pen­nant

It was Hill Top’s turn to host the Sun­day event, and again they were ca­pa­bly cap­tained by Glen Pearce.

This week, the club played against Kyabram Park­land which can be a mean feat by any­one’s stan­dard.

First off the tee was Jodie (26) play­ing against a more ex­pe­ri­enced Peter McInnes (18). Jodie was un­lucky to lose the match two down on the 18th hole.

Cap­tain Glen was in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances to Jodie play­ing a more ex­pe­ri­enced but youth­ful player Rus­sell Loecke.

Un­like Jodie, Pearce won his match wear­ing his op­po­nent down on the 19th hole.

Next up was Dave Cornwall who played a su­perb game of par golf for the first four holes to set up a com­mand­ing lead, win­ning his match two up with one to play against Ed McQuenn.

Bryan Miller who was suf­fer­ing from man flu played Scott McLen­nan. It was a tight bat­tle with Bryan win­ning 3 and 1.

Last but not least was young Matt Miller play­ing a New Zealan­der about three times his size, Chris Kane (nick­named Kiwi).

Hand­i­caps for this group were square at 12 each.

Young David (Matt M) de­feated Go­liath (Kiwi) seven up with five to play.

Hill Top won the day over Kyabram Park­land 4/1.

It was fan­tas­tic to re­ceive pos­i­tive feed­back from play­ing clubs on the great con­di­tion of the course and in par­tic­u­lar the true­ness of the greens.

The food supplied by the kitchen was rated by all as ex­cel­lent.

Next week pen­nant cap­tain Glen is hav­ing a week off. In his ab­sence Dale Clarke has big shoes to fill.

We play Shep­par­ton at Mooroopna. Good luck boys.

Sun­day mixed

The mixed four-ball best­ball com­pe­ti­tion on Sun­day was squeezed in af­ter the win­ter pen­nant round but good man­age­ment en­abled both events to pro­ceed smoothly.

Trevor and Gail Woot­ton won the day with 43 sta­ble­ford points, while Bones and Kath Ryan were run­ners-up with 41.

Balls down-the-line went to Col and Wilma Saun­ders 41 and to Graham and Gail Meneilly 41.

Near­est-the-pin tro­phies on the third went to Heather Long and Dale Clarke, to Roy­lyn Harris and Graham Meneilly on the sixth, to Kath Ryan and Fred An­drews on the ninth and to Ray and Lyn Flett on the 14th.

Les and Bar­bara Na­tion do­nated sev­eral more tro- phies given by a card draw and the bar­be­cue pre­pared ear­lier by Brian Coe en­sured golfers went out with full bel­lies.


Due to poor weather, there was min­i­mum ac­tiv­ity at Hill Top dur­ing the week with Graham Meneilly re­build­ing the 12th green the most ob­vi­ous sign of life.

Jeff Hud­dle played in Thurs­day’s chook run, spon­sored by Fish­ers Supa IGA, and won both the event (43-10-33) and near­est-thepin giv­ing him a chook and a ball to take home.

Com­ing events

Thurs­day’s com­pe­ti­tion is a draw-for-part­ners four­ball sta­ble­ford with a 10.45 am assem­bly, and Satur­day’s four-ball v par will be spon­sored by Ross and Lyn Kelly with a noon shot­gun start.

GV vet­er­ans play at Hill Top on Mon­day, June 29.
