2018 George Cronyn Memorial and GMGA Mixed Foursomes Championship Results



Numurkah Golfers Dominate District Event

One Sunday, at Mooroopna Golf Club players from all over the local district played the annual Mixed American Foursomes event.  In the prestigious handicap event where the field contested the George Cronyn Memorial Trophy, named after George who was a district President and a great advocate of Mixed events, Numurkah pair Nola and Allan Dalton won with a net score of 69.2.  Runners up were Deb Greenwood and Denis Koik from Mooroopna Golf Club with a net score of 70.1.
 
 



In the scratch event another Numurkah player Tracey Clouston teamed with Lincoln Ferrari from Shepparton Golf Club; a workplace pairing with Tracey working at Drummond Golf which is owned by Lincoln. 


 The pair returned a scratch score of 76 to take the trophy which has been played for since 1968.  Look for the well-polished silver cup on display in the Drummonds Golf store for the next few weeks.  Runners up to Tracey and Lincoln were Frank and Sue McIntyre from Mooroopna Golf Club with a scratch score of 82.  
Nearest the pins went to Sue Jenkinson and Mark Bamford on the seventh and Jan Coe and Denis Koik on the tenth.  Balls down the line going to Noelene King and Grant Stewart from Rich River, Sandy Millet and Michael Johnson from Mooroopna, Lyn and John Fanning from Hill Top Tatura, Ros Seymour and Alex Howson GMGA Secretary and Treasurer Sue and Keith Jenkinson and Jill and Oke McAuliffe from Mooroopna and the final balls going to GMGA Captains Annie Beveridge and Graeme Stevens
Thanks must go to Mooroopna Golf Club for holding the event and their staff for their help with a special thanks to Ashley and Reanna in the pro shop for their help and assistance.  The day was another step forward for improved activity for Goulburn Murray District Golf.

Goulburn Murray District Golf Teams Event

One Sunday, 124 district golfers, the largest filed in recent history, played at Tocumwal Golf and Bowls Club in the Men’s and Women’s Teams Event.

The events conducted by the Goulburn Murray Golf Association was highlighted by the fact that players from a variety of clubs were successful and as Association President David Roberts said at presentations “ the large field and overwhelming support for the men’s and women’s events far outweighed the disappointment that some clubs were not represented”

The new team’s event for women introduced by the association this year has been established as the Gollan-Hicks-Kelly Shield in recognition of its three living female life members.  The ecstatic winners of the Shield were Jill Loversidge, Di Dungan, Sue Davies and Sandra Williams from the host club Tocumwal with 135 points well ahead of a Rich River team on 127.

 The top individual women players were in Division One Zoe Courtney from Mooroopna won with 36 points on a countback from Josie Kirkman from Rich River also on 36.  In Division Two Joy Debney Rich River on 40 points won ahead of Christine Ross also from Rich River on 39 points.  Nearest the pins went to Cheryl Hart from Tocumwal and Jan Coe from Hill Top Tatura. With balls down the line going to players from three different clubs namely, Susan Davies, Kerry McKenna, Cheryl Hart, Jill Sheedy, Gayle Edwards and Marie Collins.

The Men’s teams played for the Gray Barton Trophy which has been contested since 1966, a trophy that recognises the work of Gray Barton for golf in our district. The winning team from Kyabram Valley View comprising Barry Scott, Paul Dickens, Ashley and Paul Kuiper returned a combined score of 129 points ahead of teams from Tocumwal and Cobram-Barooga with 126 points.

Ashley Kuiper from the winning team recorded the best individual score in Division One with 39 points ahead of Joel Watson from Rich River, still celebrating his summer pennant win, on 37 points.  In Division Two Ricky Bourke from Tocumwal on 38 points took the prize ahead of club mate Rod Buchmasser on 37 points.  Nearest the pins went to John Bradbury from Tocumwal and Will Power from Cobram-Barooga.  Balls down the line stopped at 34 points and went to players from six different clubs namely, Jack Flarance, Bill Ashcroft, Ronald Loversidge, Gerry Lawson, Neville Attrill, Matt Haddrell, Matt McLeod, Phil Nunn, Rob Kilgour, Les Nation, Wayne Gould and David Roberts.

GMGA Summer 4BBB Final Results:

After four of the matches decided before the 18th, Joel Watson and Aaron Loader were going down the 18th a tRich River West Course, knowing they had to win to keep the match alive, and Rich River's fortunes. Aaron sunk a monster putt on the 18th to square the match, so down the first they went again, then the second, then the third, fourth, and onto the 5th or 23rd hole of the match. Aaron and Joel went on to win the hole, and clinch a 3&2 victory for Rich River Golf Club.

Rich River Division 1 Team, with David Roberts, President GMGA Inc on the far left.

In Division 2, Tallygaroopna and Kialla fought a see-sawing battle all day, and it wasn't until the final putt on the 18th, that Tally got up to win the Division 2 flag!

A Very Happy Tallygaroopna side.

The GMGA would like to thank all clubs and players who participated in the series this year, and it was great to see the young players getting a run in the various teams. We would also like to thank the clubs for the use of their courses and hospitality during the season, and Rich River Golf Club for hosting the finals.

All players commended the course preparation, a big thank you to the ground staff and Andrew Johnson Course Superintendent Rich River GC.

Summer Four Ball Pennant FINAL Results: By David roberts

The finals of the GMGA Division One and Two Summer Pennant competition was played in pleasant condition at Rich River last Sunday.

Division 1
Hill Top Tatura had to take on home team Rich River in what became an enthralling encounter. A big 6/5 win to McCoomb and Dixon set Rich River off to a great start. Tewhata and Scott got another one in for the home team 3/2. Cornelius and Hunter struck back for Hill Top 4/2 and Hill Top’s Risstrom and Miller carded a 3/2 win.  Two matches each.  Watson and Loader for Rich River and Hill Top’s Dryden and Roberts were all square after the eighteen holes.  The match had to be decided and it took another five holes before the steady young gun Aaron Loader was able to return a net par on the 23rd hole while the Roberts par putt lipped out.  Well done to Rich River.

Division 2.
The final was the same clash as the last round as Tallygaroopna took on Kialla. A similar scenario unfolded.  Campbell and Montgomery scored a 2/1 win for Tally, however, Farrell and Hutchins and Campbell and Pettie registers two good but close wins for Kialla. Then Brett and Larson gained a 3/2 win for Tally.  Two matches each.  Last pairing, eighteenth hole and Tally Captain Montgomery and Karl managed the win one up.  The win gave Tallygaroopna their fourth win in five years.

Congratulations to the teams in each division on making the finals.  Thanks to Rich River for hosting the event.  Well done to Rich River and Tallygaroopna, may the pennants fly high at your clubs.
