Merrigum golf

October 06, 2017

The AFL grand final on Saturday meant there were fewer golfers than usual on the greens at Merrigum Golf Club.

It was a sparse field that took to the course on Saturday, with many opting to soak up the AFL grand final atmosphere at home.

Those who did play hit off early so they too could watch what soon turned out to be a one-sided game in the comfort of their own lounge rooms with a couple of coldies beside them.

A couple of notable absentees were our diehard Richmond supporters, who would have enjoyed the outcome of the big game.

I’m sure even those with just a passing interest in Aussie rules now know the Richmond theme song off by heart.

Barry Webber was proffering golfing tips to his playing partners a couple of weeks ago and clearly he has taken his own advice on board because he was the only player to finish on the positive side of the ledger, winning the day with +2 in the par event.

He has been playing pretty well lately and completely outclassed his rivals on Saturday.

The next best score was -1 which was returned by two players, Wayne Thorson and John Fuller.

With the Hawks missing finals this year, Bazza has been able to put more time into his golf and that is paying dividends.

Worm won’t be going too far on his win on the jackpot 12th but any loose change is better than nothing.

This Saturday is the Merrigum Lions’ fundraising golf day with men’s and women’s 4BBB stableford events.

There is also a callaway event for golfers without a handicap. Golf will get under way at noon with a shotgun start.

Entry is $15 per person and includes a barbecue lunch and afternoon tea.

The Lions are tireless workers within the community, with the funds raised going to local projects, so come along and support those who support our community.

A great day is assured, so get your partner organised and enjoy a top day of golf.
