39th Annual Week of Golf is upon us.
Pambula-Merimbula Golf Club annual week of golf gets underway on Saturday next October 19th and culminates with the Men’s 36 hole Open Tournament on the following Saturday and Sunday.
Entries are still coming forward at time of going to Press (Monday am) there are 531 individual players entered, playing over 2000 rounds of golf for the week, will be a good fun week, it’s not too late to enter, join in and welcome our visitors.
Considering the extreme dry times we have been experiencing the golf course is in outstanding shape, a real credit to Pat Wilson and his loyal staff, with a big thank you to the happy band of volunteers who are a huge assistance.
Some hot scoring was the order of the day this past week. Wayne Lawler led the march on Wednesday with 44 points, with Peter Matthews following suit on Saturday, naturally both lads took the bacon home in their respective grades as well as the score of the day prize.
On Saturday the grade winners were Graeme Nichols 43 points in A grade, Rob Svensen 43 points also to cash in in C grade, and 40 points bought a smile to Don Hobill’s face when he was announced the D grade winner.
Nat Gregiore also was a happy chappy with a 150 reasons to smile when pocketing the Merimbula Fresh Seafoods golden shot money.
David Parks, a regular Bega visitor cleaned up the golden shot on Wednesday, a great shot to 126cm, good stuff Parksie.
The other trophy collectors on Wednesday were Justin Trethewey in A grade, Al Crowe in C grade, and the evergreen John Finn shot 38 points to lead the D grade.
The stars of ladies play this week were Ruth Laird and Jo Hunt on Thursday with 37 and 35 points, with Leonie (I can’t improve) Bell streeting the field on Saturday with a solid 35 points.
The Foursomes Champs for the ladies was played on Tuesday with Pam Eaton and Eva Crowe being crowned the B grade champs, and after a good deal of toing and froing Leanne Munt and Anne Pointon were declared the club foursomes champs for 2019, when the clear leaders Cheryl Ramsay and Cate Walker forgot which tee they were hitting off and as a result were not able to collect the title.
