Merrigum golf

April 03, 2018

Stableford winners: Judy Baker and Phyl Fiddes

The stableford event sponsored by Tatura Caravans was played in beautiful autumn weather leading up to the Easter break.

Golfers were greeted by Easter Bunny cut-outs on the practise putting area and more surprises in the club house. Lunch was enhanced by the many tables decorated with soft toy bunnies and cardboard bunnies adorning the vases of roses, supplied by Sue Turnbull.

President Francie Mark did it once again, putting in the extra effort to mark these occasions, for which she is much appreciated.

Judy Baker played well to win A-grade with 38 points, which reduced her handicap a further one point, while Deb Reilly was runner-up with 35 points.

B-grade winner was the ever improving Phil Fiddes who scored 36 points, reducing her handicap even further over a short time playing golf. Runner-up was Francie Mark with 34 points.

Ball winners: Jan Coe 34, Terri Wangeman 33, Janette Hayward, Robyn Downs and Gail Meneilly 31 points.

Nearest-the-pins: third Gallery Café, Terri Wangeman; sixth Tatura Hot Bread and 14th One4One, Francie Mark; ninth Café Alofa, Shirley Thomas visiting from Woorayl Golf Club.

Nine-hole competition: The winner of the nine-hole competition was Joyce Tavener, who is most consistent in taking home the prize. Bett Jeffers and Lois Rogers won a ball.

Pennant golf: Hill Top will have three teams playing in the winter pennant competition this season, starting on Monday, April 30.
