Off the tee - golf

Corowa Golf

Mixed weather this week with showers mainly at night.

Fields getting smaller though with many members having a few weeks in warmer climates.

Could not find any results for the Lady Niners or Golden Oldies, so perhaps their fields have also dwindled.

Anyway, as always, there is something to report this week so had better get on with it.

Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Juniors

It was a lovely day on the course last Wednesday and the ladies had a good day, the course only heavy in a few places.

The tournament preparations, for August 17, are coming along nicely. Now all the club has to do is get a direct line to have a nice fine day and sunshine would be nice also.

The Boorhaman tournament is on August 8 and the club has a team going to that one.

A busy August, as the club championships are also on, so that will keep the ladies on the course for a while.

This coming Wednesday, August 2, is stroke monthly medal, count putts.

One lady had a good day putting last week, bet she can’t do it when it counts.

This week there will be a match played in the L. B. SKO, between N. Duursma and H. Eggleston, good luck to both ladies.

There is also another match coming up soon with J. Williams v P. Prescott, and Jenny will be giving a few shots, good luck to both those ladies also.

Results; Wednesday stableford - J. Williams 32 pts, r/up H. Eggleston 28 pts.

Good Golfing


The juniors had a fun morning trying to chip into a hoop, with not too much success, then playing a hole, which delivered a much better result.

The juniors now have a goal to work on when playing holes again to beat that score.

The children were without head coach this week, Alf, who is on the sick list with a bad dose of the flu.

Everyone hopes he is soon up and coaching again, so Alf stay warm, get well and come back soon.

Results; Paddy 9 and close behind Joseph 10, then came Ryn 13, well done to all.

Until next week, keep practicing.
