After the recent lifting of some restrictions for regional residents the local golfers were able to play on Thursday and Saturday as planned. They were sorry that their Metropolitan golfing friends were unable to join them but look forward to welcoming them back as soon as possible.
The Thursday nine holers played stroke on the back nine holes. The winner was Richard Clark with nett 35 followed by Brian Worcester with nett 36. Nearest the pin on the 18th hole was won by Keith Atwell and Colin Davies won the putting with 14 putts.
Richard Clark (15) had another victory on Saturday when he won the August monthly medal with a score of nett 73 and a nearest the pin on the 9th hole. The runner up was Paul Martin (33) with nett 79 on a countback from Colin Davies. The ladies medal winner was Heather Jenkins (20) with nett 74 followed by Gail Leigh (10) with nett 82 on a count back from Lesley Rundle. The remaining nearest the pins were won by Colin Davies, Gail Leigh and Paul Martin. Heather Jenkins won the putting with 30 putts.
On Thursday Lesley Rundle and Heather Jenkins joined four ladies from Yea to play 18 holes at Mansfield Golf Club. Whilst the Dalhousie ladies events have been in winter recess ladies from Yea and Marysville have played on other courses namely RACV Healesville, Whittlesea, Dorset, Mansfield, Yering Meadows and this week will play at Benalla. A planned game at Gardiners Run was cancelled due to Covid restrictions. Our thanks to Heather Jenkins and Adrianne Anglin for organizing this initiative. The Dalhousie ladies events begin on the 26th August with the Broadford Bowl.
Next Saturday a stableford round will be played. Members are reminded that the Club AGM will be held on Saturday 11th September at 9.00 am. Nomination forms are available in the clubhouse.
Joke of the Week.
A wife and her husband were sitting around one evening, just talking, when the wife asked, "If I died, would you re-marry?" "I would," the husband answered. "You would?" the wife asked, a bit surprised. "Would you let her come into my house?" I would. "Would she be cooking in my kitchen? “She would!” Would she be soaking in my bathtub?” “She would!" “Would she be putting her clothes in my wardrobe?” "She would! Growing more exasperated, the wife continued asking: "Would she be driving my car?” “She would!" "Would she be sleeping in my bed?" "She would!" "Would she be using my golf clubs?" "Oh, no, definitely not." "Why not?" "She's left-handed."
Visitors are welcome to join either the Thursday afternoon or Saturday competitions.
