Rutherglen Golf Club Ladies and Juniors
Another glorious day greeted the ladies both Monday and Wednesday; after the rain the course was really great but did not help the scores.
Think the ladies are still in holiday mode but give them time.
As this goes to press the Murray River Vets will have been played on our course, so let’s see if the scores can improve.
Next Wednesday will be monthly medal, first for the year.
Monday, February 26 had a good roll up, some of the ladies easing themselves back into the game.
Monday, February 12: 9 holes - P. Cooper, r/up H. Eggleston.
Wednesday, February 28: stableford - H. Eggleston 32 pts, r/up P. Prescott 28 pts.
Until next week,
We welcomed back Alf and he had the boys learning to chip and a couple of the older juniors were watching with great interest.
We had an apology from Joseph this week but hope to see him back next week.
Next week we are hoping we have a new golfer, a girl, which is a very rare species; girls right through the NE are becoming a thing of the past.
So come on parents if you have a girl who may be interested in golf don’t let the lady golfers down, bring her along so she can be taught the basics and mum you may even like it and can join in, we would love to have you.
Saturday mornings 8.30am start, more information phone Heather on 0427 331 452.
Until next week - lots of practice.
