Golfers swing into Pink Day fundraiser

May 18, 2017

Hill Top Golf Club raised much needed funds for cancer with a Pink Day last week.

Winners of the two-person Ambrose event Colleen Johns and Heather Long.


The two-person Ambrose event, sponsored by Stacey’s Massaging, was also an anti-cancer Pink Day.

A colourful group of women were not conspicuous at all in their pink shirts and ribbons — one woman even wore a pink wig — with golf carts dressed in many pink creations.

The golfing women raised $101 on the day in aid of cancer research.

The event was played in lovely autumn weather, with the course in excellent condition.

Colleen Johns and Heather Long combined well to win the day with 70 nett.

Jan Coe and Deb Reilly were narrowly beaten, scoring 70 to claim the runners-up prize.

Third prize went to Elaine Dunk and Lyn Fanning with 72, while Judy Baker and Beryl Home scored 72.75 to win a ball each.

Nearest-the-pins went to Robyn Downs on the third, Gallery Café; Terri Wangeman on the sixth, Tatura Hot Bread; Judy Baker on the ninth, Café Alofa; and Beryl Home on the 14th, Hill Top Ball.

Nine-hole competition

Lois Rogers, who recently returned to golf, won the event with 18 points.

The runner-up was Roylyn Harris with 14 points.

Championship finals were played on Sunday, with congratulations going to Julie Gregg, Colleen Johns and Sue Turnbull.


The season opened with a win to both teams.

Division 1 played at home and defeated Shepparton 4/1 and Division 4 travelled to Valley View and defeated Rich River 3/2.

Yesterday Division 1 played Tocumwal at Shepparton, while Division 4 travelled to Numurkah to play Valley View, and both teams are hoping for a repeat of last week’s results.

Golf lessons

All women interested in taking up golf or members who would like to improve their golf are encouraged to come to Hill Top on May 21 at 1pm and also on June 18.

Elaine Dunk and Julie Gregg will be conducting the lessons.

Lessons are $5 per hour and clubs will be provided.

Phone Geraldine Pollard on 58241689 if interested.

MAY 10

The Barb and Geoff Witten Day, sponsored by Hill Top, was a stableford event played in sunny autumn weather.

Beryl Home won the day with an excellent score of 41 points.

Beryl competed in the C-grade Championship last Sunday and has put her improvement down to playing more than once a week.

Sheryl Curran scored 40 points and was unlucky not to win the day with such an excellent score, being pipped by one point.

Ball winners were Janine Morgan on 39, Jan Coe on 36 and Deb Reilly on 34 points.

Nearest-the-pins went to Heather Long on the third (Gallery Café), Di Ballantyne on the sixth (Tatura Hot Bread) and Deb Reilly on the ninth (Café Alofa).

Nine-hole competition

Roylyn Harris scored 16 points to win the day; maybe the trade from golf scooter to golf cart played some part in her win.

Congratulations Roylyn on your win and purchase.


Division 1 had its first loss at Shepparton to Tocumwal, while Division 4 remains unbeaten after defeating Valley View at Numurkah.

Division 1 travels to Numurkah to play Valley View, and Division 4 has an up-hill battle in front of it when it travels to Shepparton to play Shepparton.

Junior golf lessons

Hill Top will begin lessons for junior golfers, co-ordinated by Elaine Dunk, on the following dates: Sunday, May 21 at 10.30am; Sunday, June 18 at 10.30am; and July 2 at 10.30am, with more dates to follow.

There is a $5 fee per child, with children to bring their own clubs if they have them, but not essential.

Lessons will start at 10.30am.

We will be liaising with Ashley Blake and Reanna Matthews, who are PGA professionals, to hopefully assist with lessons later in the year. Extra fees may apply for this.
