By Seymour Telegraph

It was a social day on Wednesday for the women when they were joined by some of the bowling women for a nine-hole ambrose.

It was a great opportunity for the bowlers to have a go at golf although some, including life member Pat Dawe, were revisiting past skills.

The winning team was Ann Smith, Di Byrne, Lois White and Margaret Callaghan with nett 22.13.

The runners-up were Pam Jarvis, Dawn Leece and Margaret Locke with 27.34.

The bowling women generously supplied lunch for everyone to enjoy after the round.

The men played the usual stableford round on Wednesday and Sandy Cresswell (16) had the best score of the day with 39 points to win A-grade.

The B-grade winner was Gary Neville (19) with 35 points on a count back from Vinnie Hall.

NTP went to John Hedley on the fourth and 12th, Greg Pell on the 6th and Rob Peterson on the 17th.

A score of 33 points was needed to be in the ball pool.

In the mixed nine holes, Phillip Block (25) was the winner with 18 points with the runner up Stubby Byrne with 17 points.

The Friday social six holes was stableford over holes 10-15.

Kevin Mulvaney (20) and Mick Prorok (8) shared the honour of the win when both scored 13 points.

Saturday was a club event which meant a mixed stableford competition.

The A-grade winner was Dale Stuart (10) with 34 points on a countback from Greg Pell.

The B-grade winner was Ian Stuart (19) with a steady 36 points and best score of the day was in C-grade when Jeff Smith (24) had a good round to win with 37 points.

NTP went to Jeff Smith on the sixth, Greg Pell on the 12th, John Ryan on the 17th while the fourth stayed with the club.

The drive and pitch on the eighth was John Ryan and the 15th went to Dale Stuart.

A score of 34 points got you in to the ball pool.

The men’s pennant continued on Sunday and the Division 2 scratch team headed to Strathbogie to take on Kilmore where they had a great 5½-1½ win.

The restricted handicap team had the hard task of playing Broadford on its home ground and unfortunately had a 2½ - 4½ loss.

The Division 2 handicap team met Kilmore at Hidden Valley and were narrowly defeated 3 / 4.

The Easter tournament is this weekend, starting with a two-person ambrose on Friday, which is an 11.30am assembly for a noon shotgun start.

Teams can be any combination with the cost $40 per pair.

Saturday is a 4 ball better ball stableford for pairs of men or women and again the cost is $40 per pair with a 11.30am assembly for a noon shotgun start.

A total of 36 players contested the championship with Jeremy Ezard coming out on top once again, Ezard claimed his seventh championship with a combined gross total of 224.

The grade contests were hard fought out with Shaun Bryant going wire to wire to win the A-grade nett with 217, Gary Bow came from the clouds with a second round blinder to take the win in B-grade with a total of 215, and Michael LeDeux was a comprehensive winner in C-grade with the best nett score across the entire competition.

Runner-up on the days event went to Michael Roberts who put together the best round of the day 75-5-70; this included an eagle on the par five 14th.

The next best scores went to a couple of solid veterans Glen Evans and Phil Hageman both carding nett 71s.

The nearest-the-pins were Lindsay Hall scuttling one up to the 3rd, Mick LeDeux could do no wrong all day on the 8th, the miracle on the 13th being Barry Cryer and Bob Norris playing one decent shot in the championship claiming the 16th.
