• Mens Golf Report – Week ending September 19th

  • A quick quote for this week-
    Golf combines two Australian pastimes: Going for long walks, and hitting things with a stick.

    It transpired on last Sunday that three of our members journeyed to Strathbogie for their annual tournament. A good day was enjoyed with Steve Chisholm bringing home the bacon in “C” grade with a nett 73.

    Tuesday’s event saw a field of 8 players fronting for a stroke event on a still damp course.
    The winner was Sam Sandhu (20) with nett 72 from Peter Baddeley (15) with nett 73. Ball rundown went to 76.

    Wednesday saw 12 golfers travelling to Cobram Barooga for the monthly trip away. Whilst the course was reasonably dry allowing the use of carts, the wind was pretty strong all day. However, this did not deter Mark Pearson who shot a great 38 points to win the day. A big thanks to Dan and Chris for organising the day, as well as both driving the bus.

    Thursday’s saw the start of Golf Premier League, with a field of 24 fronting the starter for the regular Stableford event, with inclement conditions.
    The winner was Geoff Payne (10) with 33 points, whilst Mark Bettany (4) was runner up with 32 points.
    Ball run down went to 30 points on a countback.
    Nearest the pins were Tony Pridham on the 7th. Sam Sandhu took out the pro pin on the 3rd. Hidden holes went to Peter Baddeley, whilst the NTP second shot on the 18th went to Tony Pridham. The novelty event of birdies on par threes were won by Tony Pridham, Martin Slack and Mark Bettany. The putting went to Brian Russell. The rabbits for the day were Bill Parsons and David Octigan.



    Following the extremely heavy rain on Friday, a small field of 16 players decide to venture out on Saturday for a 4BBB par event.
    The winners were Rob Healy (17) and Chris Leaman (12) with a great score of plus 9. Runners up were Kane Blunt (6) and Alan Parrott (13) with plus 8. Line balls went to plus 6 on a countback. Nearest the pin on the 9th was Mark Pearson, whilst second shot on the 18th was claimed by Mark Bettany. The two pro pins for the day on the 3rd and the 7th were both won by Kane Blunt.
    Tip for this week: Swing the Club; Don’t Hit the Ball. Amateur golfers hit the ball. Swing the club through the ball to a picturesque finish.
