Big weekend of golf at Harden Country Club

Once the formal activities of respecting the fallen had been undertaken, a solid field of 26 arrived to tee off in an individual mixed stableford with Craig and Toni Filmer as the days sponsors.

With a trophy for the men’s winner and also for the ladies winner some great scores were returned on a course that is playing harder now that the summer has worn off it.

In the men’s section of the day’s proceedings, the mercurial Brian Wales emerged from the highs and lows of his dog training days and announced he is back.

A superb 41 stableford points has brought Brian fair into the handicappers sights for some special attention. Balls went back to 35 points on the day and were awarded to Rod McIntyre on 40 points, Kevin Hoppe on 39 points, Ron Oakman on 38 points and Mal Hufton and Tam Kennedy on 35 points.

In the ladies section Mrs Consistency, Jeanette Elliott showed up and delivered with a rock solid 37 points. Runner up and ball winner for the ladies was relative newcomer Louise Hufton with a handsome 34 points.

Saturday

The men played a stableford event on Saturday for Josh and Erica Glover’s trophy.

Again with a very good turnout another club stalwart has re-entered the winners circle in Chris “the Bear” Hocking on a tight 39 points.

Proving that scoring has been hot at the moment, players had to at least play to their handicap to get a ball with 36 points being the cut off.

Balls were awarded to Ian Clarke-Bruce (38), Robert Bates (36), Darrryl cassidy (36) and Peter Steinke(36).

Ladies teed off for their April medal and in a countback scenario, Maryanne Fitzgerald is believed to have won the medal from Jeanette Elliott, both scoring 38 points.

The ladies wish to thank Pat Walker for her trophy on the day.

On Saturday, the club also hosted a travelling club from RMC Duntroon to our course and some conversations with players from this squad revealed how in awe of what we have as a course they were that they will be back, and with friends.

Next week

Next Saturday the men will be competing for the May Monthly Medal and Guzzlers Mug, proudly brought to us by Ron Page.

Dempster Cup matches have had their first round match completion date extended and should check the draw on the notice board in the clubhouse.

On Saturday also, the ladies on a quick turnaround will be playing for their May Monthly Medal and the Mabel McKenzie Brooch in a stroke event to be sponsored by Maryanne Fitzgerald.

Pennants

I understand that the ladies have their second round of pennants at Boorowa this Sunday.

For the men, the first round is in Temora for our division on Sunday. The match committee have selected the following team for this round one clash: Peter Steinke, Craig Filmer, Brian Wales, Tam Kennedy and Tim Beveridge. If the players could arrange their travel for this day it would be appreciated.
