Golfers lie low in heat

By Seymour Telegraph


Not surprisingly, due to the heat of the previous Wednesday, there was only a small field of players in one competition for the day and they started very early.

The best score went to Gary Neville (18) with 38 points. Bill Keating was the only player to get nearest-the-pin and he did this on two holes, on the sixth and 12th.

The ball pool went to Gary Neville, Gary Wright, Jerry Bender and Bill Keating with 36 points.

Friday evening’s social holes was a stableford on holes 10 to 18.

Ian Richardson (6) had the winning score of 20 points. Gary Wright was the next best with 18 points.

The Summer Cup went into its third round on Saturday and there were some fine scores and even a hole in one on the day.

In the men’s competition, the top score of the day went to B-grade winner, John Mundy who had a terrific (90-24) 66.

The A-grade winner was Mick O’Donnell who put together a nice (79-10) 69.

The best scratch score went to visitor Mark Corridan with 74. Nearest-the-pins went to Peter Sawyer on the fourth, Ian Richardson on the sixth, Frank Ambrose on the 12th and Phil Jarvis on the 17th.

The drive and pitch on the eighth was won by Matt O’Sullivan and by Jerry Bender on the 15th.

To get a ball in the pool a score of nett 72 on a count back was required.

As mentioned there was a hole in one on Saturday and this was achieved by Shirley Wright who made sure of the nearest-the-pin on the 17th by getting the ball in the hole.

It is her second hole in one but nonetheless exciting with the cheers heard right around the course.

This also helped Shirley win the day with the top score of (85-15) 70.

The ball pool went to Shirley Wright, Paula Britton and Jane Fletcher with nett 77 on count back.

This week, the Friday social nine holes is par on holes 16 to 6.

There is a break from the Summer Cup on Saturday as it is the Dalhousie District Australia Day four-ball better-ball stableford event being held at Seymour.

This is for men’s or women’s pairs and the cost is $40 a pair which includes a light lunch.

It is a 9am gathering for a 9.30am shotgun start.

It would be appreciated if entries could be made during the week to assist with catering.


The hot and dry conditions continued at Nagambie with plenty of run on the fairways making scoring on the longer holes somewhat less difficult than normal.

The winning score on the day went to Jeremy Ezard claiming his annual easy win with the pennant team away from the club.

Ezard shot (71-2) 69 to take the win ahead of Peter Lawrence, shooting (91-21) 70; closely followed by three nett 71s from Dave Fullager, Bill Leviston and Alby Seenan.

Two eagles were achieved on the day, with Tim Baldwin snagging one on the fourth, and Dave Fullager slamming one in on the 10th.

Nearest-the-pins went to Greg Baldwin on the third, Tim Baldwin on the eighth, Harold Rayner sticking it close on the 13th and Joe Labas thudding one home on the 16th.

The summer pennant team was away at Rich River, where the tough start to the season continued with Nagambie being comprehensively beaten by the huge handicaps of Tallygaroopna four and one.

The coming week’s golf is a stableford event with S. Bryant on office duty and B. Leviston in the bar.

Pennant will resume in a fortnight’s time.
