Around the greens - golf and bowls

September 13, 2017

Corowa RSL Indoor Bowls

Tuesday, September 5 was an interesting afternoon bowling, with a move up to the Federation Room.

It is always a challenging venue due to the uneven level of the floor, it requires bowlers to adapt quickly or struggle, some adapt quickly others find the going tough and so it was today.

The runner-up team with two wins and 30 points was lead S. Dudziak, third M. Pratt and their skip S. Bishop.

The winning team also with two wins and 32 points was lead S. Trembath, third G. Mills and their skip P. Manning.

Friday, September 8 saw a small but enthusiastic group of members turn up to what was an excellent afternoon bowling by members.

The runner-up team with two wins and 32 points was lead S. Jones third D. Roberts and their skip J. Wilson.

The winning team also with two wins and 34 points was lead G. Sander, third P. Kerr and their skip D. Pleming.

The club is starting a night competition to give working people the opportunity to take part in indoor bowling.

A number of people approached members in the past expressing a desire to take part in indoor bowling, but due to their work cannot take part during the afternoons, so the club decided to provide night bowling for those wishing to take part.

The night bowling will start on Wednesday, September 13 and will continue every second Wednesday from then on.

Corowa Golf

Well it wasn’t the weather interfering with things early in the week.

It was the ‘coring of the greens’ which meant no lady niners, no golden oldies and no Tuesday pro competition.

But as all know, this is an important time for the greens and it won’t be long before they are great again.

Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Junior

Spring is here, warmer days better for golf.

Not much happening at the moment.

One semi-final of the Louise Briers SKO has been played - H. Eggleston def N. Duursma 4/3 and as this goes to press the other one will be played - J. Williams v P. Prescott.

Good luck to both players.

Two of the north east players who played in the Golf Vic Sandgreens at Wedderburn last week won the foursomes - G. Marshall (Beechworth) and R. Keer (Albury), well done to those girls both sandgreen players.

Next Wednesday at home September 13 will be stableford, monthly medal.


Wednesday, September 6 - Stableford - J. Williams 35 pts, r/up H. Eggleston 32 pts.


The juniors welcomed a newcomer this week, Kyle, it was his first lesson and he did very well.

Alf had a skills test this week and don’t think the boys had been doing too much practice and that doesn’t make the head coach happy.

So come on juniors let’s do lots of practice this week and make him happy.

Joseph was again missing, still not quite recovered from his little op - hope to see you next week Joseph.
