Campaspe Golf Club
AFTER a long summer, the course is starting to get a bit dry, as are most courses across the country.
As a result, we are all looking forward to the autumn break, which will hopefully bring us several days of soaking rain to get some nice shades of green back into the course.
While the course is a bit dry right now, that did not stop the players from having a round of golf this week.
Kevin McCormack claimed victory in the niners this week with a score of 47-9-38.
David Marshall also put on a good showing, claiming the runner-up mantel with 56-17-39.
This week did not feature any winners in nearest to the pin or straightest drive.
Laurie Radley produced the best performance with the putter for the day, only requiring 12 putts across the course.
Wednesday ladies played a stroke round, with Florrie Bickley producing a good round to take victory 51-14-37.
A very surprised and elated Toni Bales claimed both the runner-up position with a round of 64-22-42 as well as claiming the putting crown for the day with 15 putts.
With the fifth hole being used, no player was able to claim nearest to the pin, leading some to wonder why this hole is so difficult to reach.
Naida Belot claimed the straightest drive for the day, while Faye Latter was the holder of the winning ticket for the raffle.
The winter season for the club will begin on April 9 with a two person ambrose competition.
Any combination is available to play, so make sure you get your partner organised and come along to the club for a great day or play, sponsored by Peter and Helen from the Post Office.
A reminder that subs are due by April 1.Rochester Golf Club
TEAMS of Frank Severino and Bruce Bryant, as well as Richard Feuk and Stuart Milgate produced scores of 40 points in a stableford round at Rich River Golf Club last Tuesday.
The scores were looking likely to claim the teams a prize in the four ball event, however, when the “bushrangers” scores of the high 40s then 50 stableford points were registered they all fell down the leader board.
The teams of Ap Kuiper and Laurie Jackel (39) and Graham Willis and Ian Pollard (37) were the next best of the Rochester crew.
Feuk had a day out winning nearest the pin on both the 8th and 13th after jumping over the front bunkers with his shots.
William Dingwall (21pts) returned to the winners circle in last Wednesday’s nine hole short course over the front nine.
Most of the right handers are still complaining the front nine suits “the lefty’s” but Trevor English and Tim Quinlan tend to disprove this theory.
Laurie Jackel and Robert Vise were runners-up on 20 points with Vise winning nearest the pin.
If the numbers stack up, a four-ball event will be played next Wednesday with assembly at 8.30am.
The 18 hole Saturday and Friday competitions are fast approaching, if members are available to help in hand racking the scrapes and paying their subs over the next few weeks this would be appreciated by all.
