Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Juniors
A wet couple of weeks on the course.
The tournament had to be postponed and will now be on September 21.
First round of championships was put on hold and has now been played.
A couple of good scores in division one will make it interesting in the final round, as in division two.
The leaders in division one - Y. Williamson 96-94 and N. Duursma 100-95.
In division two - P. Prescott 117-117 and P. Cooper 117-116.
So will be very close in both divisions.
Other tournaments have also been postponed owing to the wet - Yackandandah now in November, Chiltern is now the first round of the Drummonds Challenge, and we hope now to get our championships finished.
Wednesday, August 23 stroke S/S day winner - P. Prescott 117-43-74, runner-up - Y. Williamson 96-16-80.
Saturday, August 26 stroke day winner - P. Prescott 117-43-74 runner-up - N. Duursma 95-19-76.
With much relief for all - Alf is back looking fit and healthy, the juniors were pleased to see him and so was the assistant coach.
They had fun learning a couple of new grips and practicing putting.
So next week players should again practice some holes.
Alf tells says that all the guys have done well.
Paddy had a Saturday off last week but is back and doing well.
The juniors also had a wet Saturday so have catching up to do.
