Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort
Last week nine senior golfers from Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club travelled to the beautiful Coomealla Golf Club in Dareton NSW to compete in the 54-hole Coomealla Senior Open.
The weather was perfect with cool clear mornings followed by cloudless skies and temperatures around the 18 degree mark.
The course was presented in first class condition which is a credit to the 6 greens staff who work on the course.
If you haven't been to Coomealla Golf Club, it is a very tight course with extremely fast sloping greens and if you keep your ball on the fairway it is very rare to receive a bad lie.
In the men's championship, John Wilson was the best of the Yarrawonga players narrowly edging out Steve Buckley in the gross event while in the ladies it was a runaway win to Sharyn Wilson who took out the Ladies Nett Championship with three great rounds which culminated with a fantastic 38 pts in her final round.
