Mooroopna and Shepparton golf clubs launched their ladies seasons yesterday with their respective presidents days.
The club’s had their current presidents — Jan Beggs and Diane Ingram — and an array of former presidents on hand to officially open their new seasons.
Mooroopna publicity officer Sandy Millett, who is also the Goulburn Valley publicity officer, said it was a great day.
‘‘We always start the season with our presidents day to open up the new golfing season,’’ Millett said.
‘‘It is great to get together, with our past presidents, to thank them for all the work they have done over the years and to also look forward to the new season.’’
The first major event for Mooroopna will be the Sandy Millett Perpetual Trophy 18-hole four-ball stableford on Friday, April 5.
It will be followed by the club’s charity day, again supporting Riding for the Disabled, which will be on Friday, April 26. Millett said both would be great events.
‘‘They are always well attended and we really enjoy the opportunity to showcase our golf club,’’ she said. ‘‘The course is in really good nick and our course curator has had some really good feedback after recent events.’’
The club will have three winter pennant teams in Goulburn Valley competition.
Millett said Wednesday competition would return, which normally attracts more than 40 golfers, along with the popular Friday ‘‘Happy Hitters’’.
She said the ‘‘Happy Hitters’’ was for people that didn’t want to play competitive golf, with no scores registered and an emphasis on fun.
