Deluge of biblical proportions affects play

December 06, 2017

Nagambie women

On Wednesday, November 29, nine players competed in a Stableford round.

The winner of the 18-hole A-grade competition was Lynne McLean with 37 points on a count back from Sue Verge and the winner of B and C-grades with 42 points was Maureen King.

Maureen also won the nine-hole competition with 23 points.

The 18 balls went to Maureen and Annette Mills and the nine-hole balls also went to Maureen and Annette.

The nearest-the-pin winner on the third and the 16th was Lynne McLean.

Wednesday, December 6 will be a Stroke round for the Monthly Medal and Wednesday, December 13 will be a Par round.

The Club’s AGM starts at 7pm tonight.

The Chicken run on Thursday, November 30 was won by Dan Kennedy with 22 points; nearest-the-pin on the eighth was Shaun Bryant.

Thursday, December 7 will be a Par round on the back nine.


After rain of biblical proportions fell on the course in the lead up to Nagambie Golf Club’s Sunday Par competition, it required a golfer with the patience of Job, the strength of Samson and the resilience of Gideon to win the day. And that man was Trevor Price who took home the chocolates with a classy -1.

The course was the real winner with no golfer bettering their handicap and the rain sure to benefit the greens and fairways. Runner-up was Shane McCormick carding -3 ahead of Barry Cryer also on -3.

The nearest-the-pin prizes went to Shane McCormick on the eighth, Trevor Price on the 13th and Jeff Lodding scrounging one up to the 16th.

Next week golf will be monthly medal stroke event with S. Bryant on office duty and G. Whiteman in the bar.


We had both extremes of weather this week affecting golf with warmer days keeping the fields lower on Wednesday and the rain causing the course to be closed on Saturday.

In the Wednesday women’s competition, Ricky Rickman (12) took the win and the only ball on offer in the pool with her top score of 38 points.

No one was on the 17th to claim the extra competition.

Jerry Bender (22) had the best score of the day to win the men’s Wednesday competition with a great score of 41 points.

The nearest-the-pins went to Bill Brock on the sixth, Matt Bibby on the 12th, Peter Sawyer on the 17th and the fourth stayed with the club.

A score of 38 points on a count-back was needed for a ball.

The mixed nine holes was won by Dawn Leece (37) with a score of 17 points.

Phil Block had the next best score of 15 points and Melva Gardner and Ron Wilson were also in the ball pool.

As mention earlier, the course was closed on Saturday which meant there was no competition that day.

As a result, the Medallist of the Year for both men and women will now be held on Saturday, December 9.

The men will also compete for the December monthly medal and the women will play a stroke round.

The Friday social nine holes will be stableford n holes 1-9.
