The summer holiday weather has brought golfers out in the past week, playing one of the best Murray River region courses.
Locals and visitors are encouraged to enjoy the course over the holiday period. The pro shop is open every day and the usual ‘same day play’ applies for social golf - call the pro shop on (03) 5881 3333 to organise a time, or simply rock up when you are ready.
Normal competitions are held over the holiday break, including a stableford event tomorrow.
In last Saturday’s stableford the A grade winner with 39 points was Jim Poka jnr, on countback from George Willis.
Ben Irwin scored 40 points to win B grade by two shots from Ben Quinn, and David Sainz had the best score of the day with 44 to win C grade comfortably from Steve Beehag.
On Wednesday Tom O’Brien had 40 points to win A grade by a shot from John Radeski, and in B grade Connor Thompson scored 39 to narrowly defeat runner-up John Irwin on 38.
Last Thursday’s ladies event was won by Lyn O’Brien with 39, on countback from Kym Sandford.
In the clubhouse, don’t miss your chance to win $6,000 in tonight’s Joker’s Wild draw. Rarely does the jackpot exceed $6,000 and there are not too many cards left on the board, so it will go off soon. To be in the draw you simply need to buy a meat raffle ticket.
Meals are also available tonight. Bookings preferred on (03) 5881 1325.
