The Marysville ladies have travelled long distances this week to support another Dalhousie club and the Yering Meadows GC at their Charity Day. On Tuesday four ladies played at Yering’s charity day with money raised donated to the Monkami Centre in Croydon. The ladies enjoyed the day on the long and challenging course but a raffle prize was the only one they bought home. On Thursday two ladies had an early start when they travelled to play in the Trentham tournament. Margaret Blair (30) with 40 points was the winner of the C Grade handicap section and Helen Howard received a number of Dalhousie Player of the Year points. This week the Dalhousie Ladies Championships were held at Kilmore with six Marysville ladies taking part and four will travel to Lancefield on Thursday to play in the ladies Bowl. Members thank these ladies for the time and effort they put into representing their club at various events.
On Saturday in excellent conditions the men played the second round of their Championships. The daily winner was Ray Jones (17) with net 71 followed by Ross Ansell (11) with net 74. The ladies played a stableford round which Lesley Rundle (32) won with 38 points followed closely by Heather Jenkins (19) with 37 points. The nearest the pins were won by Andrew O’Shea, Jody Doran, Adam Littlejohn and Gail Leigh who also won the Golden Shot. Ray Jones won the putting with 27 putts.
Next Saturday members will welcome golfers from Woodend G C and Woodlands GC who will join the daily competition. Members are asked to bring a small plate of food to share with the visitors after play.

Men and lady golfers from the Dalhousie District and further afield are welcome to enter the tournament.
