A small field of 6 hardy Men teed off in the fog this morning for today’s Stableford event. Others chose to stay warm in bed, pay excessive amounts for weak black tea in Italy, prefer the warmth of the classroom or are simply away seeking warmth up north …. or even one member chose to stay home gathering strength to blow out the 65 candles on his Birthday Cake! (Happy Birthday Peter Johnston.
Mick Spagnolo showed the others the way consistently driving the ball down the centre (unlike the Bombers Joe Daniher) with a fine 35pts. Rob O’Halloran with 31 Pts was runner Up while Bruce Kindred, despite strong opposition was the Club Award recipient.
Our pet Member, ‘Wombat’ is slowly returning to the field …. seeing out 11 holes before succumbing to exhaustion. Its great to have him back though
With the course in tiptop condition after all the rain (and mowing that followed) an excellent field of 53 Ladies are due to hit the course tomorrow morning. Teams of 3 players, representing 17 Golf Clubs from as far away as Yarrawonga and Gisborne will be doing their best to be winners of the sought after ‘Yea Bowl’.
Congrats to the event organisers, especially Ladies Captain Jan Wealands who has done a great job once again.
