Last Saturday golfers from Alexandra, Eildon, Marysville and Yea played in the final round of the 2023 Murrindindi Masters hosted by Alexandra golf club. Norm Reddrop initiated the Masters event 14 years ago and it was his dream to have 100 players playing in each round. At Alexandra on Saturday 96 golfers played and this was about the same number who had played in each of the previous three rounds. After the final round the golfers best 3 scores were totalled and the ladies and men’s winner of the major Masters trophy was announced. The club congratulates Marysville member Beverley Bellman for winning the 2023 ladies Masters title with a total of 111 points and Yea member Gary Pollard for winning the men’s title with 109 points. Other Marysville successes on Saturday were Heather Jenkins (20) the winner of A grade with 36 points, Jillian Chandler (28) winner of B grade with 37 points, Beverley Bellman (35) was the B grade runner up with 36 points on a countback from Lesley Rundle. Paul Martin (28) with the best score of the day won the Alexandra Mini Masters section with 42 points and Travers Stow (16) with 38 points was the B grade runner up. Gail Leigh won a nearest the pin on the 7th hole. The club congratulates all the Marysville winners. Throughout the series the volunteers at each club organised an excellent event and FoodWorks were thanked many times for their generous sponsorship. The first round of the 2023/4 Masters will be played at Marysville on the 18th November.
