Golf Report - 16 March 2024

There were two busy days last week at the Marysville Golf Club with the Sandy Wilson Memorial Ladies Bowl on Thursday and the Lakeside Challenge on Saturday.

On Thursday a field of 48 ladies from throughout the Dalhousie District and neighbouring clubs played a stableford round for the Sandy Wilson Memorial Bowl. In almost perfect conditions the ladies enjoyed the course and there were some good scores. The Bowl is won by a team of 3 players from the same club whose scores are totalled and the team with the highest score claim the Bowl. We were pleased when the Marysville team of Heather Jenkins and Jody Doran each with 32 points and Bev Bellman with 33 had the highest score of the day. The Bowl therefore remains on the shelf in the Marysville clubhouse. Congratulations to Heather, Jody and Bev. Margaret Blair was the runner up in C grade, and a member of the winning small team and Heather Jenkins had the nearest the pin on the 11th hole. Other winners were from Seymour, Strathbogie, Euroa, Yea, Alexandra and RACV Healesville. Our thanks to Dobsons potatoes, the Buxton Trout farm and the Marysville Grocer for supporting us and for all the ladies for participating.

On Saturday yet again the car park was full as members hosted the Annual Lakeside Challenge. Lakeside golfers have to vacate their course near Albert Park Lake whilst the Formula One Grand Prix carnival is underway and for 11 years have travelled to Marysville for a golfing challenge. The Marysville ladies were victors over the Lakeside ladies, the visiting men beat the local players and Lakeside won the overall challenge 31.2 to 29.89. Lakeside therefore keep the trophy until next year. Congratulations to Lakeside. A new trophy was introduced this year and named the Don Read Trophy for the player with the best score on the day. Don Read along with past Marysville member Andrew Wheeler instigated the challenge after the Black Saturday fires and Don does a great job of  encouraging and organising the Lakeside golfers to play in this event. The golfer with the best score of the day was Lakeside member Tony Pacillo (29) with 42 points. Members congratulate Tony for winning the inaugural Don Read trophy which we are sure will become highly sought after in years to come.

Days such as these take many hours of planning and preparation and as in all clubs this is mostly done by volunteers who work hard behind the scenes and on the day. The green keeping team led by Kellan Fiske and the catering team led by Heather Jenkins deserve special thanks as without the course and food these days would not be a success.

Next Saturday members will host another long-term challenge and fundraising day with the social group Tour Elephants. Golfers will play a stableford round with an 8.30 arrival for a 9.00 am shotgun start. All members are reminded that it is $15 per head to play and are asked to please take a plate of food to share.

The final session of Barefoot Bowls for the summer will be held at the club on Friday 22nd March from 4-8pm. All locals and visitors are welcome to attend this fun evening and to catch up with friends for a drink and supplied nibbles. It is just $5 a head and no experience is necessary.

On Tuesday 26th March the Dalhousie Veterans will be holding their event at Marysville with a 9.00 am arrival for a 9.30 shotgun start.

The 10c container program of which the club is a participant got off to a good start this week with Lloyd Flaherty taking our containers to the depot and bringing back $90. Thanks to Lloyd for his efforts.  Members and friends are encouraged to take their containers from home and place them in the relevant bins at the club. Every 10c helps.
