July 20, 2017

Seymour Golf Club Winter Cup winners


All competitions were played this week.

The course is still holding up well through the frost and intermittent rain periods.

On Wednesday the women played a stableford round and Dale Stuart (9) was the winner with 32 points.

The extra competition was the second shot on the sixth hole and Ricky Rickman was the closest.

The ball pool went to Stuart, Sue McCall and Shirley Wright.

In the men’s stableford competition, Gary Wright (13) was enjoying one of those great days out when everything seems to go according to plan.

Wright was the stand-out winner with his gargantuan 44 points.

The nearest-the-pins went to Mark Fountain on the sixth, Graeme Drummond on the 12th, Joey Passmore on the 17th and the fourth stayed with the club.

A score of 35 points on count back was required for a ball.

The mixed nine-holes was won by Ron Wilson (36) who would have been pleased with his score of 19 points.

The runner-up was Stubby Byrne with 18-points and the next best went to Dawn Leece.

The Friday social six holes was played over holes 10-15 and it was a par round.

The honours for the afternoon were tied between Gary Neville (19) and Matt Collard (21) who both had a score of square.

The third and final round of the winter cup was held on Saturday. This was a par round.

In the men’s daily results, Dave Enricho (10) won the A-grade with a score of plus three.

The B-grade winner was Neville (19) who also played well to score +3.

The winner of the overall however was Fountain.

His score was good enough on the day to hold out and win the three-round event with an overall score of +1.

The next best score was Neville who finished square after the three weeks.

The nearest-the-pins on the fourth and sixth were won by Terry Asquith and Luke Meredith respectively. It was great to see both men back at the club after some time away.

The 12th was won by Bill Brock and the 17th went to Graham Welsh.

The drive and pitch on the eighth was won by Roger Edwards, while the 15th was not claimed.

To get a ball a score of square or better was needed.

In the women’s daily results, Pat Ferris (22) was showing her true form again with a solid +2 to win the day.

Di Byrne was the winner of the winter cup with an overall score of square.

The next best was Stuart who was only one further back.

The extra competition on the day was the best nine in score and Di Stammers had that with plus one.

The ball pool went to Ferris, Stuart and Paula Britton.

The Friday night social six holes this week is a stableford and will be over holes one to six.

Saturday is a four-ball better-ball stableford game for the men with partners to be decided by a draw.

The women will be playing a normal stableford round.


Last Wednesday saw 10 players out on the course for a par round.

Players were finding it hard to score.

Jenny Jeong was the winner of A-grade with a -3. She also won the extra nine-hole trophy with a +2.

B and C-grade winner was Irene Keogh, also with three-under.

Balls down the line for 18-holes went to Jeong, Keogh and Ronda Richards (with a score of five-under).

The nine-hole balls went to Jeong, Keogh (+1) and Richards with square.

There was only one nearest-the-pin winner — Annette Mills on the eighth.

Today we’ll play a stableford round in teams of three. We’ll draw for partners when we all arrive.

Next Wednesday will be a stroke round, the final of the silver spoon, the GV Broach and our anti-cancer day.

Many thanks to Dad’s Army and the heavens above for the wonderful rain we’ve had, the course has loved it.

The chicken run on Thursday saw 20 players playing stableford.

The winner was Des Phelan with 21 points.

The nearest-the-pin was Shaun Bryant on the eighth.

Tomorrow will be a par round on the back nine.

Trevor Price and Jeremy Ezard combined to win the Nagambie Golf Club two-man ambrose event.

With both possessing a similar style, golf games and personality traits it was no surprise that they won the day.

The pair fired 73-4.75-68.25.

The pair shared the load equally throughout the round with some excellent driving, a steely mind set and good putting to complete the round only one over.

Next best went to a couple of Nagambie stalwarts in Jeff Mills and Bill Leviston, punching out a credible 79-8-71.

The nearest-the-pin prizes went to Peter Lawrence on the eighth, Mills on the 13th and Ezard on the 16th.

Next week’s golf will be a stroke event with J. Ezard on office duty and J. Lodding in the bar.

The club send their sincerest sympathies to Sally, Greg and Clair Bazeley on the loss of Tim this week.
