The first day of the Romsey Golf Club Centennial three day event was held in perfect golf weather. The course preparation was greatly appreciated and acknowledged by those who played. Visitors from Broadford, Kilmore and Goonawarra, along with the locals, enjoyed the 2 Person Ambrose format. The afternoon tea of savoury treats and homemade sweets was also enjoyed by the golfers when they returned to the clubhouse.
Highlights of the day included an eagle on the par 5, 17th hole by visitors Chris Hanson and Graeme Hogg, along with Andrea Boland playing a great shot on the par 3, 3rd hole to claim Nearest the Pin on that hole. Overall winners on the day, Ethan Bray and Ben Sullivan, combined well, hit some great drives and sunk some awesome putts to record a great score of Nett 67.
