Pennant Season begins. Five players Adrianne Anglin, Miranda Gill, myself, Di Elliott and Vicky Butler ventured to the greens of Seymour for the first round. The mood, much excitement, perhaps a little apprehensive to the days outcome and just a touch of the fighting spirit needed to conquer! all made for a great tussle.
One by one all ventured onto the course striking the first ball hoping that all went to plan. As we all know in pennant it is a whole different game. One on one, one hole at a time, all secretly hoping the opposition makes a mistake just to get the edge or take the pressure off if that dreaded putt doesn’t want to go in. Pressure making one do things not necessarily in the plan. Quite a nail biting game. If you love competition pennant is the go to get the adrenalin pumping. Depending on how the game plays out can make the game shorter than usual or some battling it out to the last hole for the final outcome. Today was our day, our first game , our first win made for some very happy players especially myself being elected Captain for the season could proudly report back to our club we were successful! Go Yea! Special thanks to those that hosted and helped sort out all the questions one has forgotten in between Seasons. Game complete it was lunch time and speeches, which I am not all that fond of but for some reason today it did not matter as I got to say Congratulations to the girls and my favourite word commiserations to the opposing Team. Hope we can do the same this week as we wander off to Kilmore to battle with Alexander. Wish us luck!
Back home Wednesday was our turn to host the Royal Women’s Hospital 4BBB a very important event to raise funds to purchase new equipment and to train specialist doctors in urogynaecology, for the pelvic-floor dysfunction unit at the RWH. The event commenced in 2005 to commemorate the centenary year of Women’s Golf Victoria. All funds raised are donated to the RWH Foundation. In 2020 Golf Australia and affiliated Victorian Clubs raised $4795.00.
Today we had 9 teams participate and along with the raffle raised the sum of $270.00. Well done ladies. Although overcast the rain held off making it a very pleasant day for golf. Todays winners were Di Holdsworth and Penny Britton having 41 pts taking home some well sought after olive oil along with the title. Congratulations girls! Runner ups were Sue Aurisch and Laraine Callander 39 points. Sharon Grogan managed to secure the only gobbler.
Saturday a Par event, Monday 2nd round of pennant and next Wednesday the second round of the Kath Homewood 36 hole aggregate. The first round Adrianne Anglin had an impressive first round so will be a hard contender to beat. Good Luck everyone! HAPPY GOLFING ALL!!!!
