Golf Report - 19 March 2023

The Marysville Golf Club members have been busy during recent weeks with hosting events farewelling a favourite local member and of course playing some golf.

On Saturday the State-wide extreme heat and strong winds didn’t reach Marysville and conditions were excellent for the golfers. The ladies played a stroke round for the first round of their Championships. The championships are held over four rounds and the best of three rounds are counted in the final tally. The daily winner was Gail Leigh (10) with an excellent nett 67 and the runner up was Lesley Rundle (32) with nett 70. The men played a stableford round for the 2nd round of the Barton Cup. The winner was Ross Ansell (12) with 38 points and Brian Worcester (16) with 37 points was the runner up. Brian and Ross will join Jim Bisset, Alan Howard, Yewls Kuan and Steve Berry who have already qualified for the final later in the year. The nearest the pins were won by Richard Clark, Gail Leigh, Brian Worcester and Ray Jones who also won the Golden Shot. The putting was won by Gail Leigh and Jody Doran with 27 putts. Next Saturday the golfers will be hosting the Tour Elephants social group for the annual Marysville Challenge.

On Thursday the Marysville ladies hosted the annual Sandy Wilson Memorial Bowl and 50 players from the Dalhousie District and further afield enjoyed a stableford game on our beautifully maintained course. Marysville winners were Mim Page B Grade, Helen Howard B Grade runner up, Meredith Doery and Nicole Koek each won a nearest the pin and Mim, Heather Jenkins and Jody Doran won the small teams event. Congratulations to the Mansfield team for winning the Bowl from a Marysville team. The club would like to thank all those members who contributed to such a successful event. The guests were very complimentary about the course and we thank Kellan Fiske and his volunteers for their continual hard work.

Friday was a busy day at the club with the first of two free golf clinics for women being held under the guidance of coach Travis Harrison. Both sessions were at capacity and whilst there was some apprehension from the participants as they made their way down to the hitting area they all returned with happy smiles and positive comments. The next clinic which is also fully booked is on Friday March 31st. Thanks to Jody Doran and Briony Hickey for this great initiative.

The Friday Night of Fun at the club continues to be popular with locals, visitors, golfers and non-golfers. The evening begins with a few holes of golf from 4.00pm and at 5.00pm some novelty games using modified putters and drivers and some social chat over drinks on the decking. Now the footy has started the big screen will be available. The club thanks Jim Bisset and his wife Sally Kindness for coordinating this weekly gathering.

Popular club member Jillian Chandler and her husband Geoff are moving to Phillip Island and they were recently farewelled by the members. Jillian has lived in the area for many years and although her involvement with the golf club is comparatively recent she has been an enthusiastic member and an essential part of the team of volunteers. She had made a particular impact on the gardens around the club and has been an avid traveller willing to play in events throughout the Dalhousie district. She will be greatly missed and members wish her and Geoff all the best in their new home.
