Around the greens - golf and bowls

September 06, 2017

Corowa Golf

Because the clubhouse was closed on Monday and Tuesday, it’s likely the Lady Niners and Golden Oldies did not play as no results could be found from them this week.

For your diary

Saturday, September 9 - 4BBB stableford aggregate.

Wednesday, September 13 - stableford, round four Lethbridge Cup to be played on or before this date.

Just came across a rather good adage - maybe quoted by Arnold Palmer - “The road to success is always under construction”.

Like it?

Happy Golfing

‘The Bogeyman’

Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Juniors

The club championships are done and dusted.

Congratulations go to Y. Williamson winning division 1 with 96-94-95 = 285.

Joint runners-up N. Duursma 100-95-96 = 291 and J. Williams 106-96-89 = 291, J. Williams came home with a wet sail in the last round, but just could not bridge the gap.

Division two won by P. Cooper 117-116-102 = 335, runner-up P. Prescott 117-117-113 = 347.

Going into the last round there was only a shot between them, but Pat Cooper got her act together and came home with a 102 and that put a stop to anyone else.

Well done to all those who took part in the rain interrupted championships.

The best net three scores over championships was P. Prescott 74+74+70=218, runner-up was H. Eggleston 84+78+68=230.

The club is now looking forward to fine weather for the tournament on Thursday, September 21.

Put that date in your diary golfing ladies, the club would love to see you.

At the moment the course is a one, just a small run and the mower man says that by September 21 it will be in A1 condition, so come on ladies.

Our congratulations to Hans Duursma on his hole in one on Saturday, September 2 during a mixed, not quite sure who was more excited - Hans or Nancy, it was on the 14th.

Ladies next week will be playing stableford.


Division one winner - Y. Williamson, runner up N. Duursma won on count back from J. Williams.

Division two winner - P. Cooper, runner up - P. Prescott.

Day winner August 30 - stroke, H. Eggleston 96-28-68, r/up P. Cooper 102-33-69.

Good Golfing


Had a short session on Saturday morning as there was a mixed tournament, but the juniors managed to play three holes and some good shots and not so good shots.

Paddy was again showing the way with 24 and Ryn 30, which is a great effort.

Joseph is on the sick list, hurry up and get well soon you were missed.

And as Alf told you - keep practicing.
