* Trainee Tournament – congratulations to all involved as word from the players was that the course was magnificent and they had a great week. The Peter Fraser long drive comp. is always a fun event with the winner hitting it 321m, (halfway up the hill on the first west!). The amateur event went to Tyson McCoomb on 301m to pip Rowan Hill on 298m. Rocket and another “youngster” Joel Watson were next in line.
*Golf Course News – The left hand side of 16 west – Andrew Johnson’s plan is to thin and remove plants from the tee to the bunker. From the bunker to the front gate it will be grassed with small patches of plants to break it up.
*Premier League – Entry forms are in the Pro-shop for this exciting event which starts in March. $60 covers the entry fee, a free drink each week supplied by CUB and the presentation night dinner, which is great value. Reluctant Heroes are the defending champions. If you want to be in a team see the Pro-shop.
*Summer Pennant – After five rounds the Division one team lead by David Cockroft is undefeated. Simon Putna’s Division Two team have fought back after losing in the first round to now have three wins. The final will be held at Rich River on Sunday March 4th. Thanks to our sponsors Mawson’s Concrete and Quarries Echuca, Natrad Echuca, Deni & Echuca Fire Service and Echuca Locksmiths.
*Handicap Matchplay – the February Monthly medal was the qualifying event with the top eight nett scores in each Grade going into the draw.
*If you have suggestions or see something on the course that needs attention do not hesitate to talk to one of the committee or contact me.
