It is a pleasure to play on the Marysville golf course at the moment and last Saturday in brilliant sunshine the Autumn colours looked stunning. Those colours were enhanced by the red and white of the Fly Agaric mushrooms and the golden hues of the chestnut burrs under the trees. It was great to welcome back Ken Whittingham, Beck Lee and Yewls Kuan who have all been unable to play for a while.
Both the ladies and the men played a stableford round with the men’s competition incorporating the final of the Barton Cup. The best round of the day was won by Jody Doran (13) with an excellent 40 points. The runner up was Jenny Coleman (30) with 32 points. The men’s daily winner was Steve Coker (19) with 38 points followed by Richie Clark (18) with 35 points on a countback from Peter Lilley. The nearest the pins were won by Jim Bisset and Duncan Talbot who also won the Golden Shot. Husband and wife Jody and Duncan had some successes yesterday and to finish the day off their dog Albert Talbot won a raffle prize!
The winner of the Barton Cup after the 4 rounds played was Jim Bisset. The club congratulates Jim on his well - deserved win. Next Saturday both the men and the ladies will play Par.
The ladies Dalhousie pennant competition is continuing. On Monday 8 May the Marysville team played Lancefield at Seymour and won the match 3.5-1.5. Well played Jody Doran, Mim Page, Helen Howard, Jenny Coleman and Margaret Blair. On Monday 15 May the fifth round was played at Euroa against Broadford and the results will be given next week.
Last Thursday 6 ladies played in the Yea Bowl. Margaret Blair (31) won the C Grade section with 35 points was a member of the winning small teams event and gained 4 Player of the Year Points. Jenny Coleman received 2 Player of the Year points. Congratulations to the Yea 2 team for winning the Bowl. Marysville members would also like to congratulate the Yea Golf Club members as next week they celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the club with a dinner dance and a high tea. The Dalhousie event this week is the ladies Bowl at Kilmore and 6 Marysville ladies will be playing.
The Friday afternoon golf event is still being held and all locals and visitors are welcome to attend from 1.00pm. Those ladies who recently participated in the golf clinics are particularly welcome and the short course set up for beginners is proving to be popular.
