Last Saturday was a busy day at the Marysville golf club with the Woodlands v Marysville golf challenge taking place and The Australian Tarmac Rally organizers using the club as a command centre. Members of Woodlands Golf Club have been coming to Marysville since 2015 for a friendly challenge against the local members and to offer their support to the Marysville community following the 2009 fires. Each golfer played a stableford round and scores were tallied with the winning team receiving the beautiful handmade wooden trophy. The Marysville members with the advantage of local knowledge won the daily competitions with Jody Doran (11) winning the ladies section with 35 points followed by Gail Leigh (10) with 33 points. The men’s winner was Brian Worcester (19) with an excellent 40 points followed by Paul Martin (31) with 38 points. Brian and Jody each won a game of golf for four people at Woodlands kindly donated by Steve Manallack and Woodlands golf club. Nearest the pins were won by Dean Ward, Steve Berry, Paul Martin and Rob Lister. The winners of the 2022 challenge trophy were Marysville with 26.2 just 8 points
ahead of Woodlands. Many thanks to Steve Manallack and the Woodlands players for their generosity and support over the last 8 years. During the presentation Gail Leigh was wished a Happy Birthday and former member Hellen Elliott, visiting from Queensland, was warmly welcomed. Many Marysville members contributed to the success of the day and they are thanked profusely for their help.
Whilst the golfers were on the course the Australian Tarmac Rally officials were using the clubrooms as their communications centre and HQ. Throughout the weekend the competitors and officials enjoyed some delicious meals provided by local chef Glenn Fiske and the hospitality of the golf club volunteers and staff. Thanks to all those who served behind the Bar and contributed so much towards a successful event.
Last Thursday four ladies played in the annual tournament at Trentham golf club. With a 9.00 am tee off it was an early start and long journey for the ladies but they enjoyed their game on the beautiful course. Congratulations to Margaret Blair (30) for winning C Grade with net 73. The Lancefield tournament due to be played on 27th October has been cancelled but hopefully the tournament at Kilmore on the 3rdNovember will be played as scheduled.
Next Saturday both the ladies and men will play a stableford round after which the ladies golf section will hold their AGM.All local golfers and those visiting the area are welcome to join the Saturday competition which is a 9.00 am registration for a 9.30 tee off.
