".....it (Port Fairy) is the best value golf in the world - without question." Golf Australia
The annual Police and Community Day was held on Monday and a field of 86 players contested the team of four Ambrose event. The weather was a little suspect early in the morning however the afternoon was fine and an entertaining game of golf was had by all. There were a number of inexperienced golfers in the field and some rather rusty equipment and interesting swings were on display. Ultimately the team of Wally Sheehan, Noel Sheehan, Gary Chisolm, and Gavin Chisolm won the event with a fine nett score of 532/8. Many thanks to all the organisers and support staff for a well run event that will benefit a local charity by several thousand dollars.
Mark Lewis was the best of the men on Saturday posting a solid 40 point round to win A grade while Anne Williams scored 41 points to win the women’s section. Tony Revell registered a 40 point round in Wednesday’s Pro Comp for the second week in a row and won the event on count back from Norm Preston.
Mary Robertson and Helen Dwyer both had excellent rounds of plus 3 on Thursday to win B and C grades in the women’s Par competition.
On Thursday Anne Dwyer shot a solid 84 to clinch her eighth women’s club championship by 10 shots from Di Robinson who also shot an 84. Another remarkable performance by Anne. The B grade title went to Jean Wilson who also won by 10 shots and in a close tussle for C grade honours Chris Hayes defeated Ros Saunders by three shots. In the day’s handicap event Eda Ritchie posted a nett 72 to defeat Denise Harman on count back and win A grade while Edna Halliwell and Dawne Barker were successful in B and C grades.

Neil followed up his excellent 43 point round in the Pro comp with a rock solid 40 points in the Vets that included a nearest the pin on the 8th.
