The terms Birdie, Eagle and Albatross are used occasionally when reporting scores in a golf competition and all golfers aspire to achieve one of these scores. A Birdie is when a golfer achieves 1 shot under Par, an Eagle is 2 under Par and an Albatross is 3 under Par. Screams and cheers resonated around the Strathbogie golf course last Thursday when Jillian Chandler achieved an Eagle on the Par 4 3rd hole. Jillian hit her drive to the corner of the dog leg fairway and with her second shot the ball went into the hole. Congratulations to Jillian and thanks to the Strathbogie ladies for presenting her with a bottle of wine. Jillian and six other ladies were playing in the Strathbogie Bowl where Beverley Bellman (36) won C Grade with 37 points on a countback from Jillian. Beverley received 4 Dalhousie Player of the Year points and Jillian received 3. Congratulations to Kilmore for winning the bowl and thanks to the Strathbogie ladies for their hospitality.
Last Saturday both the men and ladies played a stableford round with all proceeds donated to the Marysville SES. Good conditions resulted in some excellent scores. The men’s winner was Keith Atwell (21) with 41 points and the runner up was Richy Clark (15) with 39 points. Helen Howard (25) won the ladies competition with 35 points followed by Rebecca Lee (25) with 32 points on a countback from Jillian Chandler. The nearest the pins were won by Ross Ansell (2) and Richy Clark. One player managed to get a nearest the pin on the 11th green but unfortunately he hit the ball from the 10th tee! During the presentations after play the men’s pennant team were congratulated for their victory in the finals. Our thanks to the ladies pennant team for providing the afternoon tea. Hank Kersten from Bannockburn was welcomed to the Saturday competition.
Last Monday in the 4th qualifying round the ladies pennant team played Trentham at Yea. Marysville won 3-2 and thanks to Miriam Page, Helen Howard, Jenny Coleman, Jillian Chandler and Beverley Bellman for playing in the team. On Monday they played Romsey at Yea and the results will be given next week.
Last Tuesday a number of members attended a working bee and transformed the garden around the bowling green. Thanks to all those who contributed to the project.
Next Saturday both the men and ladies will play a stroke round for the June monthly medal.
