Clover Leigh membership contested a single stroke event for the August monthly medal on Saturday, in both the men’s and women’s divisions.
Winning the womens event with a nett 80 was Kate Marwood-Craig.
Despite some wonderful stroke play, there was no nearest the pin recorded for the womens event.
Winning the mens event with a nett 69 was Peter Freck.
Nearest the pin to Brad Noordhuis with 540 cm on the eighth.
Gobbles to Kate on three, Maree Marland on the five and sixteen, and to Brad on fifteen and sixteen.
Maree’s effort on the fifth resulted in the only birdie recorded on the day.
Feat of the day to Fred Hisken who, after a gobble on the seventh, followed up with one on the eleventh.
On being advised that two gobbles was the limit in any one round, he blithely ignored this injunction and proceeded to gobble the next hole, the twelfth.
Which ought to have been enough, but Fred then exacerbated his infraction and made a gobble at the last hole, the eighteenth.
This, of course, resulted in a thorough search of the record books (which don’t record the number of gobbles in any one round), so living memory was consulted and nothing was found.
A shout out to a couple of members who had independent gravitational misadventures this week while executing complicated and elaborate undertakings.
Next Saturday’s golf: August 11, will of course, not be a single Stableford. It will be the annual Betty Freck Memorial day.
This is a two-person multiplier, draw for partners, hitting off at 10am. There will be a BBQ lunch half way round. Bring some extra coin as the entry fee will be $12.50.
The Clover Leigh Golf Club sits in a rural setting with bush and grazing countryside all around.
It is very quiet and kangaroos wander onto the course in the evening.
