Lyn does it, Peter's still trying.

The Queen of Aces.





Lyn James, from Rich River, has recently had two holes-in-one.  On Saturday February 13th she holed out on the 13th West Course and on February 27th she again holed out on the 4th West Course over a line of bunkers. 

Having never had a hole-in-one before Lyn was extremely excited about her achivement. 

Husband Peter, who has just been elected to the position of Vice Captain at Rich River is still in shock,and like most of us, is still chasing his first. He is copping the ribbings very well.

Congratulations Lyn from the GVDGA.

Junior Pennant - Postponed

 Monday, March 15, 2010

Breaking News:


The Goulburn Valley District Golf Association have decided to postpone the Junior Winter Pennant Competition. It will now be held during the October-November period.

There were a number of reasons for the deferment:

1.    Football commitments by a number of Juniors.

2.    Lack of numbers at this time of the year.

3.    The later season will then work in with the Stuart Appleby/Geoff Ogilvy Junior Tournaments.

4.    Difficulty in getting venues when considering the number of pennant matches being played.

5.    This will allow the juniors who wish to play, a chance of playing in the open pennant competition, both scratch and handicap.

The GVDGA Executive will send out the pennant draw for the winter season shortly, and will keep all advised about the Junior Pennant.

If you have any comments on this decision, please post them in the comment section below.
