Rotary Charity Golf This Weekend.


The Rotary Club will be conducting a Charity Golf Weekend on this Saturday and Sunday April 27th and 28th at Pambula Merimbula Golf Club. All are most welcome visitors and members alike.

On Saturday a Singles Stableford is the event and on Sunday a Fourball Medley Ambrose with a shotgun start at 10am.

Another busy week with many visitors gracing the course both in competition golf and socially, with many compliments about the condition of the course, which is a great source of encouragement to the Superintendent and his staff. Well done lads.

Ossie Ziviani also enjoyed the playing conditions on Saturday winning both C grade and the Presidents Cup for the score of the day with a fine 41 points, just heading off Lyndon Lewis by a single shot, Lyndon collected the D grade prize as a consolation.

Ben Wilkie (Yowani) and Brett Thomas (Thredbo) showed up the locals with wins in A and B grades scoring 39 and 40 points respectively.

Long-time member David Went enjoyed the 17th nearest the pin collecting $250 for the Sails Real Estate golden shot.

Balls in the down the line went to all 35 points or better.

On Wednesday another encouraging field of 153 faced the starter with 41 points being recorded twice, once by Rob Blacker (Tathra) in A grade and the second 41 points by the clubs singles match play champ Peter Sverdrupsen to take the cash in C grade.

David Burgess showed last week’s golden shot no fluke when his fine 40 points won the B grade award showing his detractors he can really play the game.

On this occasion balls to 34 on a c/b and Mitch Bucholtz collected a handy $224 for the golden shot.

The outstanding scores in Ladies golf this week were recorded  by Ann Lavender and Lola Smith on Tuesday, with a nice result for Frances Dowling to win on Thursday just edging Chewy Chia on a countback when both girls recorded fine rounds of 35 points.

Susan Donnelly won both Tuesday and Thursday in the nine hole event, and Cheryl Ramsay kept up her recent hot form to lead the field on Saturday.

The Men’s Match Play nomination form is in the Captain’s Corner, please enter asap to give some idea of the number of entries we will be catering for.
