Last Saturday the car park at the Marysville Golf Club was full to capacity as Marysville members hosted the 4th and final round of the Foodworks Murrindindi Masters. It was a perfect day weatherwise and the course looked stunning thanks to Kellan Fiske and the volunteers who worked tirelessly to prepare it so well for the players. There were 103 players from Alexandra, Eildon, Yea and Marysville and for some it was their first round of golf on the Marysville course.
The men and ladies player who had accumulated the best score over 3 rounds were declared the 2022 Murrindindi Masters Champions and this year Marysville members won the title with Sabrina Stow (113 points) winning the ladies section and Brian Worcester (107 points) winning the men’s competition. Congratulations to our Champions Sabrina and Brian.
A number of Marysville golfers were successful in the daily competition. In the ladies section Gail Leigh (10) won the Marysville Mini Masters title with an excellent 38 points, Rebecca Lee (26) with 37 points won A Grade and Miriam Page (22) with 35 points was the runner up. The successful men were Duncan Talbot (12) with 34 points who was runner up in A grade, Brian Worcester (20) won B grade with 40 points and Ken Whittingham (28) was the runner up in C grade with 36 points. The nearest the pins were won by Brian Worcester, Peter Phillips (Alex), Cheryl Roberts (Yea) and Rebecca Lee. Congratulations to all the golfers from the other clubs who were successful in their sections.
The 2021/22 season of the Foodworks Murrindindi Masters has been an outstanding success with around 100 golfers playing in each round. Thirty three ladies and 106 men played in all 4 rounds and each club did an excellent job hosting their event. Grateful thanks to Foodworks for their very generous sponsorship as this allows each club to consider this event as one of the main fundraisers of the year.
Like all clubs the organization of the Marysville event relied heavily on volunteer members and all were publicly thanked by men’s captain Colin Davies for all the hard work they contributed behind the scenes in the weeks before and on the day. Colin, former captain Alan Howard and his wife Helen coordinated the day and they too were thanked profusely by those present.
Next Saturday a stroke round will be played for the February monthly medal.
