On Saturday the winner of the 2023 Men’s Club Championship was decided with Andrew O’Shea (6) declared the winner of the scratch event with 244 over the three rounds and Ross Ansell (11) was the winner of the handicap event. Members congratulate Andrew and Ross on their victories.
Also, on Saturday members welcomed to the competition a group of golfers from Woodend and some ladies from Woodlands Golf Club. Woodend members Gary Delany and Dan Payne won the major gross and net events with Marysville’s Mark Bambery winning the men’s stableford section with 39 points. Gail Leigh (11) won the ladies net section with 74, Heather Jenkins (19) won the scratch event with 93 and Helen Howard (25) with 38 points won the stableford section. The nearest the pins were won by Ross Ansell, Peter Lilley, Seamus Whelan and Danny Bell who also won the Golden Shot. Matt Payne and Jan Mc Phearson won the longest drive, Richy Clark the straightest drive and Mark Bambery the putting with 25 putts. A lunch supplied by members was enjoyed by all those in attendance. Our thanks to all the visiting golfers for supporting Marysville, to Richy Clark and Colin Davies for organising the day and to Kellan Fiske and his team of volunteers for preparing the course so well.
Next Saturday both the men and ladies will play stroke for the November monthly medal after which the newly formed Match Committee will meet in the clubrooms.
On Thursday four ladies played in the Lancefield Bowl. The strong wind presented many challenges to the golfers but all the players persevered for 18 holes and returned to the clubhouse wind blown and ready for lunch. Congratulations to the team from Romsey for winning the Bowl and to Helen Howard for gaining one Dalhousie Player of the Year point. Seymour is the venue for this week’s ladies event.
