Campaspe golf

Campaspe

If you happened to see a cloud of dust emanating from Campaspe golf course last Monday, it was Frank Broucek tearing up the fairways again.

He was again the winner of the day scoring (38-10-28).

The handicapper is going to have fun.

Runner up was Dick Henderson on (52-171/2-341/2).

The NTP saw Rod McAsey on the fifth, with Frank on the 7th.

Straightest drive on the 9th was Justin Rodda.

It is good to see Justin back in town for a short while, having a hit.

Rod took out the putting 12 and because we had a good field, Ray Peake held the lucky card.

There was a good roll up of ladies for their day on Wednesday, playing Stableford.

Shirley McAsey won the countback from Florrie Bickley who won the countback from Naida Belot.

All on 19 points.

Shirley also had the straightest drive and June Gibbs had the lucky ticket for our raffle.

It was great to see so many of our members and past members enjoying a festive meal at the Rochester Hotel last Saturday.

A good night had by all.

Spencer Broom’s 25 stableford points won last Wednesday’s nine hole event from Russell Anderson’s (24) and Garry Charnas (23), Anderson was the winner of the count the putts on a countback from Charnas both on 13 putts.

This week’s nine hole multiplier event will be the last for this season, captain Feuk has arranged for a barbecue lunch to be served with salads provided by members after play.

Wednesday morning golf has proved to be popular with the older players and those limited for time and I’m sure when play resumes early in the new year the numbers will increase especially after the recent rain which has encouraged the couch grass to spread and hopefully we are not far away from connecting and testing the new water supply from the Campaspe River.

The course will remain open over the summer months with regular cutting of the fairways and rough and raking of the sand scrapes when required.

Frank Severino’s first shot to the 16th at Rich River in last Tuesday’s two person Ambrose (shot gun start) nearly resulted in a hole in one with the ball coming to rest within centimetres of the hole, Severino easily won the super pin for the day and came away with 90 reward points.

Steve Malley and partner Peter Anderson were unlucky not to collect third prize with their good score of 71-7.5 nett-63.5. They were relegated to fifth after a three-way countback.
