Marysville Golf Report
27th June 2020
Last Saturday 24 players braved atrocious weather conditions to play a stroke round for the July monthly medal. Non golfers driving past the club must have thought that the golfers must be nuts to spend four hours chasing a little white ball around the course whilst getting soaked and trudging through mud patches. Golfers are a hardy lot and perhaps the members who drive up from the suburbs just wanted to escape from the clty!
Despite the difficult conditions and whilst there were some forgettable scores a number of players did play well. The men’s winner with an excellent nett 64 was Keith Atwell (26). Keith is a Marysville resident and new to the club. He has recently played some very good golf and the Handicapper has suggested that Keith will not be on a 26 handicap for much longer. Well played Keith. Colin Davies (27) was the runner up with nett 70. The ladies round incorporated the first round of the Barton Shield and the winner of the medal was Margaret Blair (34) with nett 75 followed by Heather Jenkins (21) with nett 77.
For the first time for many weeks It was good to be able to adhere to all restrictions and gather in the clubhouse after the game. Our thanks to Alan and Helen Howard for keeping a record of the previous 6 weeks results and for presenting the trophies as appropriate. Members also celebrated Sabrina Stow’s upcoming special Birthday by sharing a cake made by MasterChef Helen Howard.
Last Thursday during the nine hole competition Graham Page played the trick shot of the week when his ball went into the river, bounced out and landed on a nearby tree trunk. What happened next we wonder?
Next Saturday the ladies will play a stableford round and the men will play Par for the first round of the Par Shield.
