As we head towards the delightful autumn months it is time to start planning your golfing calendar.
Two important events are the Autumn Classic, on March 10 and 11, and the annual Deniliquin Open on Sunday, March 18.
Entry forms for both events are now available and can be obtained at the club or accessed via the clubs website, www.denigolf.club.com.au.
With the autumn weather more conducive to golf there will also be the return of charity days, including the MS Charity Day and the annual Rotary Club charity day. More details will be provided in coming weeks.
Last Saturday was a stableford event, with Jarryd Pearce having an excellent round of 42 points to win A grade, five clear of runner-up George Willis. Matt Cameron had 40 points to take the B grade prize from Thomas Bult on 38, and Dale Drinnan scored 39 to win C grade by a shot from Nigel Brown.
A highlight of the day was Rob Morris’s eagle, holing out with his second shot on the par four seventh.
Tomorrow is the Tasker’s Garage Monthly Medal, and with predictions of a delightful day hovering around 30 degrees a big field is expected.
In the clubhouse, the Joker’s Wild jackpot continues to soar and tonight sits at a very healthy $6,500. It has certainly generated plenty of interest over the past month or so.
‘Boz’ had a decent crack last Friday and almost claimed the big prize - maybe someone will pick the Joker tonight. All you need is a ticket in the meat raffle to be in the running.
Tickets are on sale from 6pm with meat raffle draw at 7.30pm and Joker’s Wild draw at 8pm. Good luck! Meals are available, with bookings preferred.
