• Heroic deeds indeed

    LAST week, I promised that there would be some heroic deeds to report this week, and there certainly is.

    A large group spent the week in Mildura playing golf and having fun – 15 men and women from our club spent the week playing golf and having a tremendous time, particularly at the caravan park where most stayed.

    Details of the off course activities will remain secret – suffice to say, some people have sworn off alcohol (for a while, anyway).

    Best result for the ladies came from Robyn Baker, who won the daily round in A Grade on Friday and was runner up in scratch over the three days.

    Great work, Robyn.

    Heroic deed two happened at the golf club, where Millie Cumming and Linda Terry fought out the Bill Reardon matchplay championships final.

    This was a hard-fought competition with Terry taking the win on the 27th hole.

    Congratulations to both players for such a high standard of play.

    Heroic deed three was the trip to Strathbogie by six of our girls, who brought home many of the spoils, but unfortunately, not the Bowl.

    The ladies scooped the individual events, with Lyn Holland winning A Grade, Linda Terry B Grade, and Marion Sargeant C Grade.

    On top of that, Lyn Holland got a nearest the pin and Marion Mitchell, Marion Sargeant and Linda Terry won the Small Teams.

    The ladies even had a couple of wins in the raffle – quite a day out.

    Back at home, Raili Vuorela won Tuesday’s nine hole stableford with 18 points and Jacqui Smithwick took out Thursday’s nine hole with 17, on a countback from Lorraine Wilson.

    Wednesday’s stableford went to Patsy Smiles with 33 from Lyn Holland on 29.

    Marion Sargeant had as fine time, winning a ball, nearest the pin on the 16th and closest putt.

    Sam Bailey took nearest the pin on the seventh and Sheryl Sargent took the money hole, the pro pin on the third.

    Saturday’s monthly medal was won by Patsy Smiles with 75 nett, from Lyn Holland on 79.

    That’s one win and two runners up for Holland in a matter of days – not a bad effort, Lyn.

    Two visitors played in our comps this week, one from Gardiner’s Run and one from Keysborough – we hope they enjoyed the course and bring their mates for more rounds.
