Thursday October 27th – Doris Chambers Foursomes – State Final

Jenny Hartley and Darlene Baker represented Romsey Golf Club at the Doris Chambers Foursomes State Final held at Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club.  This competition is played over two stages with the first stage being a Club Qualifying round.  All club winners are then invited to participate in the final.
As with many courses across the State, Sanctuary Lakes was very wet with boggy patches on most fairways but despite this the course was very well manicured and the large greens were in tiptop condition.  Many bunkers were taken out of play for the round due to the amount of water in them and thankfully free relief was allowed. Carts were permitted but were restricted to certain areas and if your cart happened to enter a restricted area the engine was automatically disabled and only reverse gear would engage until you were out of trouble!  With careful manoeuvring Jenny was able to avoid all no go zones.
To add to the challenges of the course there was persistent and, at times heavy,  rain for most of the second nine holes.  After the round players enjoyed a light lunch back in the warm and dry clubhouse.
Winners on the day were a pair from Peterborough Golf Club with a score of 32 Stableford points.

Jenny and Darlene managed 24 points on a tough but enjoyable outing finishing in 11th position.

Wednesday October 26th – October Medal, stroke & putts

Six hardy golfers took to the course to play a Stroke round, for the women that included the Monthly Medal event for October.
The greens were good, so good in fact that Jenny Hartley won the least puttsfor the round with a total of 26 putts, well done Jenny. The rest of the course was extremely wet underfoot which made scoring difficult for most players.
Darlene Baker claimed nearest the pin on the 3rd with Steve Wilkins NTP on the 15th, Steve played consistently good golf considering the conditions to take out the honours for the day.

Saturday October 22nd – 4B Multiplier Stableford

While there were a few areas of surface water and the fairways were again soft the course had generally recovered very well from the heavy overnight rain,  The sun shone all afternoon and players could almost see the grass growing  All greens were again good, a tribute to Steve Wilkins who does so much work to keep them in their best possible condition.  4B Multiplier Stableford often throws up unusual results, teams may score eight or more points on a hole or they may record a zero.   On a sunny afternoon the results were;  

1st – Mitch Atlas (7)/Sherif Abdel -Sayed (34) – 56pts

2nd – Luke Lyons (15)/Steve Wilkins (18) – 54pts

Wednesday October 19th – Stableford

With the flooding rains and the results of the recent fire damage making things very difficult for our volunteers it was amazing to see the course in such good condition. We are very thankful for all the mowing of the fairways, the surrounds and the greens that has taken place. The weather was great too so it was overall a lovely day.
The field played from the red tees, of which the 8th is a par 5, and Luke Lyons managed to hole his third shot from 35 metres out to record an eagle. Nearest the pin on the 15th was also Luke and needless to say Luke continued on his merry way to record the best score of the day. Congratulations Luke Lyons!!!

2022 Euroa Bowl

Romsey Golf Club was represented by Beryl Cole, Jenny Hartley and Darlene Baker at the Euroa Bowl.  The weather was pleasant and the course in good condition considering the recent rains.
The winning team was from Euroa with a combined score of 90 points. Highlights for the Romsey team was Beryl being runner up in C Grade and Darlene earning a point in the Player of the Year awards. A lowlight was the team being late for tee off after having a flat tyre 15 kms away from Euroa

Wednesday October 5th – Stableford

Steady but light rain fell for most of the Stableford round resulting in most of the field electing to play only nine holes.
Of those who did play 18 holes Jenny Hartley performed the best with a good score of 33 points and second was Rob Slade with 27.

Wednesday September 28th – Ambrose

The decision was made to stay warm and dry in the clubhouse as the rain fell yet again on the course.  

The planned Ambrose event was set aside for another, more golf friendly day.

Thursday September 15th -Avenel Tournament

Romsey GC was represented by Wendy Gosden, Jenny Hartley and Darlene Baker at the Mabel Vearing Silver Salver at the Avenel Golf Course.  The weather was variable with light rain for the first four holes followed by some windy conditions that eventually changed to a pleasant golfing day.
The fairways were in great condition with a full cover of grass.  The challenge of the sands scrapes was daunting for some but the team from Yea adapted well and managed to win the Silver Salver for 2022. Congratulations Yea.
