Golf on Saturday was a stableford event with 16 men playing. Winner with an extraordinary score of 43 points was Bill Dredge(19). Great result for a man who mows the greens. Second and third both had great scores as well with New Member Phil Armstrong(31) and Chris Smith(25) with 42 and 41 respectively. NTP on the 10th for 2 was Neil Peterson and Paul Hildebrand secured the Club Award.
Ten members visited the Cobden Golf Club for part of their golf week on the weekend. Friday night saw a 9 hole 2 Person Ambrose played. Followed by 28 Hole Stroke Event played on Saturday. Yes 28 Holes! You play the fourteen holes twice. With fast greens, couch fairways and several creek crossings the Cobden Course is rated 121 with a scratch score of 69 par 71. Therefore all Yealiens lost about 3 strokes off their handicap they have at Yea. Thank heavens for golf carts on Saturday as the round took 6 1/2 hours to play! Best of the Yealiens was Rick Wills with a nett 118. Next year early planning will see us play on the February races weekend with 18 holes Stableford on the Saturday and on Sunday an 18 Hole 3 Person Ambrose.
Reminder that on Friday is the nine hole two person Ambrose starting at 5pm. Followed by dinner at the clubhouse at 7pm. Members to bring a casserole or salad.
