Golf Report - 27 November 2022

It was a busy week at the Marysville Golf club with many members and visitors enjoying the beautiful course.

On Friday the building industry golf and cycling event was held with 44 golfers playing a stableford round whilst the same number of bike riders rode up to Lake Mountain. The golfers and riders gathered in the clubhouse after their activities and enjoyed the delicious lunch provided by local caterer Glen Fiske. Visitors David Stewart from WT Partnership and Reynold Gilsen from Advance Pre Cast won the men’s golf and Marysville member Jillian Chandler won the ladies section. This is the 14th time this group have visited and they have booked another event on 28th April 2023.

On Friday evening members hosted about 40 local emergency services personnel at a sports night. In glorious sunny conditions the visitors were able to play lawn bowls, test their skills at putting using some unusual putters and hitting a golf ball with some handmade drivers from a tee near the clubhouse decking to the 18th green. Cheers and laughter resonated around the club and it was lovely to see these special members of the community having fun and enjoying each other’s company. After spending most of the day in the kitchen Glen Fiske generously donated his services to feed the evening visitors with some delicious finger food. Events such as these need a lot of planning and a few helpers on the day. President Steve Coker, Vice President Peter Lilley and Jillian Chandler were the coordinators of the day and their hard work was appreciated by all the visitors. Thanks also to Jim Bisset, Sally Kindness, Bob Emblin, Kellan Fiske, Gleywnis Shiong, Marilyn Johnson and Lesley Rundle for their assistance.

On Saturday a group of 14 golfers from Rossdale Golf Club in Aspendale joined the Saturday competition. Both the ladies and men played stableford for the Neil Murphy Trophy and the Captains trophies. The player with the best score of the day and therefore the 2022 winner of the Neil Murphy trophy was Peter Lilley (17) with an excellent 37 points on a countback from Rossdale member Mark Sinclair (12). Peter also won the captains trophy. The ladies winner of the captains trophy was Heather Jenkins (21) with 33 points followed by Gail Leigh (12) with 28 points. The nearest the pins were won by Caz Hay, Ming Kuan, Paul Martin and Jim Bisset who also won the golden shot.

On Monday three ladies travelled to Broadford to play in the Dalhousie District Championships. This was the final event of the ladies Dalhousie calendar and one of only a few held throughout the wet Winter and Spring months. At the time of writing the results were not available.

Next Saturday both the men and ladies will play a stroke round for the December monthly medal with the men’s round incorporating the final round of the championships and the ladies the final of the Barton Shield.
