Parker In the Hunt Again On Saturday, after the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse had decided to go through the region from a weather perspective, the wind was still icy and blowing a stiff breeze making golf conditions tough. The man for all seasons showed up and like he has been for the last 40 years, he gave the young whipper snappers a schooling.

Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Bernard Parker is that man. Bernie was even heard after the round to say “Lovely day out boys,” in his Harden laconic style. Bernie recorded a solid round to his handicap, knocking out 36 Stableford points like he was counting sheep in his sleep. This was enough by 2 whole points to take the trophy provided by the Country Club and put the field to shame.

In a tough day’s scoring, balls went back to 33 points with Bernie the only man able (he says capable) of playing to his handicap. Balls went to John Hawkins (34), Matt Paisley (34), Tim Beveridge (34) and Darrell Cassidy (33 pts).

The day out was that tough that nobody in the field even hit the 10th green, leaving the Bendigo Bank Hole in One, not under threat by acres.

Ladies & Midweek
The maelstrom that was, meant that these fields were depleted and there were not enough starters. Ah well, next week it is!

This Weekend
On Saturday the gents will be competing for the April Monthly Medal in 2 grades and all will be competing for the Tim Beveridge trophy. It will also be the 2019 Dempster Cup qualifier where the top 16 players will go into the prestigious Club Matchplay event over the course of the year.

The ladies will be competing for their monthly medal by competing in a stroke event and also recording valuable putts. The host for the trophy will be Marj Manwaring

Enjoy your golf weapons! – Alby
