Moyneyana 27 Hole Open

A capacity field contested the annual 27 hole Moyneyana Open in ideal conditions on Saturday 22 January. Competitors came from some 18 clubs from across Victoria and south east South Australia, with the scratch winner and runner up hailing from Hamilton and Millicent respectively, whilst the 27 hole nett winner is a member of Heywood Golf Club. Local golfers fared better in the 18 hole division with course superintendant, John McIlroy winning the scratch event, whilst local ladies obtained a clean sweep in the women’s section.

Memorabilia on offer

The club has uncovered a collection of old tee signs used around the course some 15 to 20 years ago. The signs were originally purchased through generous donations from then members and feature a carved hole layout together with the allocated hole number and details. The club is offering these pieces of memorabilia, free of charge, to interested parties. Not all of the hole numbers still exist and preference will be given to those members who originally sponsored the purchase of the signs. If interested please contact club manager, Trevor Brown.

Capacity fields compete on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

Saturdays Stableford competition field consisted of 178 players, whilst Wednesdays pro competition field saw 163 players take part. These capacity fields enjoyed very competitive golf with all winners returning 40 plus point scores and only players with high 30 point scores receiving a ball in the ball competition. The competition fields were followed by the ever expanding number of green fee paying social golfers which ensured the links played host to the maximum number of golfers on both days.

The high scoring continued when the 9 hole chicken runs resumed after the x’mass break with regular competitors, and frequent winners, Wally Robertson and Ken Fenwick winning the events with 20 and 22 points respectively.

Return visitor and holiday makers enjoy the links.

It is the time of year for many of the clubs country members to enjoy the use of the links on their annual holidays.  They share the course with local members and the many visitors experiencing the course for the first time or for their annual ‘hit’ whilst camping at Port Fairy.  For many this is the ideal time to consider taking up a membership and committing to play more regularly and perhaps gain and improve a handicap.

Great weather equals great scores.

Once again the conditions apparently have been conducive to high scoring as 45 stableford points were required for a win in both Saturday, Tony Hoy, and Wednesdays competition, Bill Lenehan, whilst 47 was returned by Greg Carter to win on the previous Wednesday. Many a player has been seen scratching their head planning a way to win at least in the ball rundown.
