The women played the first round of their 2013 Club Championship on Thursday in some brutal weather and this was reflected in the scores. The best gross score was an 86 produced by Anne Dwyer whilst the best nett result was a 72 by Jean Wilson and that was five shots better than the next best nett score.
Conditions had improved by Saturday for the 4BBB Par event and Gus Baulch and Daryl Gavin turned in a sterling plus 12 to win by two from Colin Lang and Bruce Leishman.
Nick Alexander turned in a solid 41 point round in Wednesday’s Pro comp to win the day by two points from Ed Hilliard.
The first round of the women’s pennant season commenced on Monday with two Division 3 sides in action against Warrnambool. The end result was a win and a loss to each side.
The veterans teed off on Monday and Aub Lake won A grade with 38 points while Alistair Donald won B grade with a fine 39 point round. The next veterans event is on Monday 15 April.
The paving work around the new shed was scheduled for last Tuesday however the contractor fell ill so we have to wait a little longer for that task to be completed.
One of the major events of the year for the district’s women golfers, the Jean Whitehead Bowl, was held on Tuesday. The event is played by teams of 3 from the same club and was dominated by Warrnambool whose teams won the Bowl and also filled the runner-up position. Port Fairy golfers were not entirely outdone as they won all three grades of the individual handicap event. Beryl Duncan was the best performed individual with an excellent score of 90 (23) 67.
The men’s CDGA Pennant season commenced on Sunday and the Club had a reasonable start with three wins and three losses. They have a lot to live up to this year following the four pennants they won last season.
On Saturday Craig Gibbs posted 40 points and was the best of 133 players who went around in pretty reasonable weather. On Wednesday conditions were somewhat more difficult due to strong winds and a mere 35 points was good enough for Steve Greenwood to record a win.
Conditions were still a bit difficult on Thursday and 35 points was the best any of the women was able to record, however three of them achieved the task and each managed to win their grade. Today the women commence play in the first round of their 2013 championship. Good luck to all participants.
Fine summer weather continues and Port Fairy golfers are returning some excellent scores. On Saturday Jim Milledge posted a plus 7 from a 25 handicap for the best score of the day and a win in C grade while Paul McNamara won B grade with a plus 6 and Kadir Zehir triumphed in A grade with a plus 5.
Wednesday’s Pro Comp was won in fine style by John O’Sullivan who shot a magnificent 44 points to win by three points from Ken Eldridge.
On Thursday the women also played Par and Jean Wilson was the best of them with a solid plus 3 that won B grade while Helen Bacon and Nicki Atkinson posted plus 1’s to win A and C grades respectively. The annual competition for the women’s Club Championship commences today. Best of luck to all participants.
