Results for Wednesday, 5 February 2020.
A very huge welcome to our Catalina Ladies for the start of our Special Events season. The bushfire devastation and resulting difficult circumstances has affected all of our members and the community at large. Despite this however, the tenacity and enthusiasm of our women golfers was on show with 68 ladies competing in a Stableford event to vie for the ‘Portia Dunn Trophy’. Portia, a keen golfer, donates this trophy to be awarded for the best aggregate score (over all divisions) of four out of six individual stableford events played throughout the year. Results for today are as follows:
First: Myrna Radin (20) 37 points
Second: Jo Taylor (17) 36 points

A Fond Farewell to Golfing Friends
A large number of Club Catalina Golfing Members joined together in farewelling Marilyn and Laurie Wynn on their departure to Melbourne to live closer to family and friends. They had been members of the Club since 1999 although had had prior periods of living here as Laurie’s mother, Eleanor resided in Nelligen.
On all accounts both Marilyn and Laurie made a formidable team competing in mixed team events, particularly as members of the Chirnside Park Country Club near Melbourne in their younger days. They brought with them knowledge and expertise about golfing matters. Marilyn in particular, involved herself in the Ladies Committee, including three years as Ladies Captain. Always having an amiable nature, she assisted greatly with the subtleties relating to rules and technicalities, which is most appreciated by our Lady members.
It is with much sadness we see them go as they will be sorely missed. We wish them health and happiness in this their new chapter in life, and at least one hole-in-one!
