Last Saturday both the ladies and the men played a stroke round for March monthly medal and the second round of the Summer Aggregate. Members were thrilled when Heather Jenkins (19) scored her best round ever with 88 off the stick and a nett score of 69. This was an excellent effort and a well-deserved achievement. Heather was naturally the winner of the March monthly medal and she won the Summer Aggregate with a total of nett 140 over the two rounds. The winner of the men’s medal was Robert Coleman (36) with nett 70 and this combined with his score of nett 76 last week made him also the winner of the Men’s Summer Aggregate with nett 146. The runner up for the ladies’ medal was Helen Howard (25) with nett 74 and Peter Lilley was the runner up for the men’s medal with nett 74 on a countback from Steve Coker. The nearest the pins were won by Peter Jeffery, Heather Jenkins and Steve Berry who also won the golden shot. To keep the awards in the family Jenny Coleman won the putting with 27 putts. The club congratulates all the winners. Next Saturday both the ladies and men will play a stableford round and all visiting golfers to the area are welcome to join the competition. Just turn up at 9 for a 9.30 tee off.
Last Thursday Marysville were well represented at the Seymour ladies Bowl with 6 ladies attending. A Seymour team won the Bowl and a team from Alexandra were the runners up on a countback from one of the Marysville teams. Heather Jenkins won a nearest the pin and Beverley Bellman was a member of the victorious small teams. The club thanks the Seymour ladies for their hospitality and for hosting a well organised event. On Tuesday a team of 3 played in the Hidden Valley Bowl and on Thursday 6 ladies will play in the Lancefield Tournament. The Marysville ladies are certainly good travellers and enjoy supporting events at other Dalhousie clubs. The Marysville Ladies Bowl is on Thursday 16 March and they look forward to welcoming players from Dalhousie and other Districts.
The Friday fun night last week was well attended and it was great to see members of the Marysville Lions Club and the Emergency Services relaxing on the decking and catching up with friends and colleagues. Locals and visitors enjoyed watching the Hole in One competition hitting off the 10th tee to a temporary green not far from the tee. The club used each week is adapted and is a block of wood attached to a golf club shaft. Miraculously Adam Littlejohn scored a hole in one and took home the $150 Jackpot. Congratulations Adam. Due to a generous donation the prize pool has been reset at $150 so locals and visitors are welcome to go along to the golf club at 5.00pm on Friday for another night of fun and games and camaraderie. For those who wish to play 4 or 6 holes of golf just turn up at 4.00pm. The club thanks Jim Bisset for initiating this event and for welcoming people to the club so warmly.
