The balls went to the winning and runner-up pairs as well as Dawn Leece and Ann Stanbrook.

The Easter tournament started on Good Friday with the four ball better ball stableford event kicking off the proceedings.

The club hosted 52 players including a few visitors from around the district.

Don’t forget there is a four-ball better ball event for both the men and women on Anzac Day — 11.30am assembly for a shot gun start at noon. Saturday it is back to regular golf with a par round for both men and women.


The Easter long weekend was an opportunity for golfers to enjoy the course with the greens currently in great condition. Sunday was a more casual affair after the end of the club championship the previous week. With a three-man ambrose the day’s event, winners with a sub par total of 71 nett 61.34 were John Richards, Shaun Bryant and David Love, with all three players combining well to take the win.

Runners-up were the in form Tim Baldwin, Phil Neville and Jeff Mills not far behind the winners with a nett 62.

Only three of the possible four nearest the pins were won which was surprising considering the rather still conditions on the day for the Nagambie course: the eighth went to Trevor Redfern, 13th Richards and 16th John James.

This week’s event is the first round of the social club trophy/stableford, with Greg Whiteman on office duty and Jeff Lodding in the bar.


Wednesday was a great day for the golf with the course in a fantastic condition after the wonderful rain. The ladies played stroke along with the first round of the Mona McLeod and International Bowl and count the putts events. The winner of A-grade was Mozzy Fowler with 93-16-77 nett. B- and C-grade and extra nine-hole winner was Judi Redfern with 119-44-75 nett and 60-22-38 nett for the nine holes on a countback from Fowler.

Only one nearest the pin on the 13th was won by Annette Mills.

Ball winners were: 18 holes, Redfern, Fowler and Andrea Richards with 103-25-78 nett; nine holes, Redfern, Fowler and Maureen King on a countback from Richards and Jeanette Richardson on 38.5 nett.

Today is stableford and Monthly Medal with the 30th being stroke and the first round of our club championships. Saturday will be a stableford round.

Best wishes to Sue Verge who is now home recovering from a back operation. We also send best wishes to Gerrit Anton who has also had a back operation. We hope you will both be back in a couple of months better than ever.

Thursday saw a great field of 31 players playing stroke for the chicken. The winner was visitor James Lingwood with a great score of 39-12-27 nett.

Nearest the pin on the eighth went to ‘‘Grumpy Trevor’’, the card said. Tomorrow will be a stableford event on the back nine.
