The tee off time for the Australia Day 4BBB event at Seymour was, due to the predicted high temperature brought forward half an hour to 9.00am. It was a decision appreciated by all 100 players although they were relieved when they completed their round and returned to the cool area near the clubhouse. Marysville was represented by 4 pairs and Rebecca Lee and Helen Howard with 40 points were third in the ladies section. To complete a successful day for Rebecca she also took home a lovely hamper raffle prize. Our thanks to the Marysville players who took part in this event and to the Seymour members for their hospitality.
On Saturday the Yea golf club members hosted the third round of the Foodworks Murrindindi Masters. There were 101 golfers from Yea, Eildon, Alexandra and Marysville playing on a well-prepared course despite the heavy rain on the Friday evening. Twenty-seven Marysville golfers played and they had a number of successes. Sabrina Stow (21) with 38 points was declared the Ladies Yea Murrindindi Mini Master, Jody Doran (13) with 37 points won the A Grade section, Travers Stow (17) with 40 points won the men’s B Grade and Ming Kuan, Jody Doran (2) and Margaret Blair each won a nearest the pin. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all those who played. Events such as these take an enormous amount of work behind the scenes and of course rely solely on volunteers. Our thanks to Vicki Clements for coordinating the day and to all those who assisted. Thanks also to Foodworks for their generous sponsorship. The final round of the Masters will be held at Marysville on Saturday 12th February and members are looking forward to welcoming a full field to the event.
Next Saturday the Marysville members will play a 4BBB for the Liesfield Trophy. This trophy is played for in memory of young members James and Matthew Liesfield and their mother Elizabeth who died in the 2009 Black Saturday fires. Partnerships will be drawn on the day for a 9.30 shotgun start.
