During the Working Bee last Sunday
Eudunda Golf Club Chairperson, Fay Argent
was pleased to announce that permission
has been granted by the family of Carolyn
Reese to allow the Eudunda Golf Club to
hold a ladies golfing event in Carol’s name.
Fay was very excited as she is very keen
to bring back the ladies to the Eudunda Golf
Club by celebrating not only Carol’s golfing
achievements being the last ladies’ President
but also her fun. She obviously enjoyed golf
and scored a hole in one whilst playing. She
was also committed to the town of Eudunda
in the form of the media for such a long time
in her life.
The day is to be similar to the JAK
Memorial celebrating Carol’s golfing life
but the main event for all her friends, both
golfers and non-golfers will be to enjoy a
Sunday lunch at the Golf Club and recognise
a very special lady in the town of Eudunda.
There will be an announcement as to when
and how to obtain a ticket as the date gets
Most of last Sunday’s Working Bee’s
attention was toward the club house but
there was a bit of an opportunity to add
another couple of scrapes to the completed
list for the season start.
Another Working Bee will be held this
Sunday afternoon at 2pm on May 3 making
the course ready for the Season Opening
Day on May 9. The course is greening up
beautifully with the scrapes and fairways
becoming more playable due to the work
that is being done.
Golf season starts: on May 9 being an
Ambrose competition. Make up a team or just
join in on the day, everyone is very welcome.
Golf Tip of the week: Golf is not just for
the exercise; it is an adventure, a romance
or even a Shakespearian play which can
almost in every round include a touch of
comedy. A game for everyone and everyone
is very welcome to join in.

Kapunda Golf notes
Anzac Day started with emotional dawn ser-
vices around the district where all could take time
to reflect on the sacrifices made 100 years ago by
so many young Australians.
Once the sun was up a good field of nearly 60
players teed off in the Tony Stephens 4BBB sta-
bleford comp. Despite the forecast of early show-
ers the rain stayed away in the morning and the
pairing of Lucas Bagshaw and Damien Burgess
combined well for a score of 48 points. Looks like
Bagshaw had the sore shoulders with a score of
42 points himself, an excellent effort.
They didn’t have it all their own way with Jamie
Lindeblad and John Conaghty also finishing up
with a combined 48 points but couldn’t manage
to clinch the countback.
Bert Pearce and Barry Williams were just a shot
back with 47, of which Bert managed 41 individu-
ally. Williams did contribute when it mattered but
Bert was on fire.
Joe Ryan and M Boult were joined on 46 by a
couple of visitors from the Barossa in Rob Harcourt
and Max Wilson.
The local larrikin pairing of Daniel Arch and
Paul McCarthy had a pretty good score of 45.
Other individual scores of note were Max Wilson
on 41, Jamie on 40 and Arch 39.
Unfortunately the President couldn’t escape
being the brunt of a story on the day after his
second shot at the par three 14th finished up in
the first water hole in front of the tee. This was
after his first had only just stayed dry on the bank
after topping it off the tee. One bad duffed hole in
five years and everyone gets on the band wagon.
Thursday’s comp saw a good field of 24 players
tee up with Vince Cozzitorto just getting the better
of the field with 41 well compiled points. Both Dave
Bashford and Keith Adams were just a shot back.
Vice captain Dave trialled a Sunday comp and
13 players had a hit in perfect conditions. Dave
Waters called it a day early on Saturday when
he felt a few spots of rain but took it up to the
field with 43 points on Sunday. Keith Alexander
had an interesting day with 15 front nine points
followed up by a blistering 25 on the back. What
a funny game.
The idea of a Sunday comp might become a
more regular occurrence, say once a month, if
enough interest is shown.
Saturday is the annual men’s 27 hole Open so
if you haven’t got your name in do so today. The
greens will be well recovered from the renovations
and a great day of golf is guaranteed.
An early notice for the 4 person ambrose event
which will be held on Sunday May 24. Get your
team together for another great day of fun and
