Please find below the golf report as issued to the local newspaper - except for a quote from Horace Hutchinson, who said “If profanity had an influence on the flight of the ball, the game of golf would be played far better that it is.”
No play on Tuesday as players travelled to Young for the veteran’s day. No outstanding performances from the Clover Leigh contingent, but all enjoyed the Young golf club’s cordiality and hospitality.
Saturday’s single stableford drew in the cream of the local competition on a chilly, overcast day. Winning with a conspicuously fine 40 points was Graeme Bell with George Gerrard on 37 points running up.
Nearest the pin to Mick McDonell on the seventeenth, within 418 cm of the lip of the cup.
A gobble to Graeme on the first for a par that clearly set him up handsomely for the remainder of the round.
Next Tuesday at 10 am will be a single stableford while Saturday at 10 am will be a par event.
Next Sunday, 17th May, Clover Leigh’s top competitors will travel to Bigga for the first round of the South West Slopes small clubs pennant match, hit off at 10 am. Our adversaries this year include Bigga, Boorowa and Binalong.
Clover Leigh hosts a nesting box project for the endangered native mammal, the squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis). Patrons, we can now report that a number of the nesting boxes show signs of habitation and a family of gliders has been photographed in two of them.
Said tree-mounted boxes are sufficiently deep enough in the rough to be safe from the peregrinations of players chasing errant slices from left-handers or hooks from right, when playing from the eleventh tee.
