Three times lucky
LIGHTNING may not strike in the same place, but keen Numurkah golfer Nola Dalton hit two jaw dropping hole-in-ones within five days on different courses, making it the third time in her life she has hit the miracle shot.
Ms Dalton hit her third hole-in-one at the eighth hole at Rich River’s west course on Monday, from 140 metres away. A Rich River spokesperson said the game was part of Golf Victoria Marion Dwyer championship, 36 hole foursome.
No details for Griffiths Lane farmers
MOIRA Shire assures Griffiths Lane landholders it will install culverts along the road to relieve possible flooding, despite months of silence and no further consultation.
Last year, farmers feared council road works that increased the road camber would create an impromptu levee bank during a Loch Garry flood event, and ruin agricultural land along the Picola district roadway. Council had met with landholders and admitted it had raised the road by around 10cm, and promised it would install culverts to allow for water to drain, instead of pooling up in flooding. However, landholders said there has been no further consultation since last November’s road side meeting, and no one has seen the plans.
Back to back purple haze
NUMURKAH Golf Club has claimed the Division One Winter Pennant title for the second year running after they defeated Mooroopna 4-1 in bitterly cold conditions at the Hill Top Golf club on Sunday.
Mooroopna went into the match as the favourite after defeating Numurkah the week before in the last home and away match . However, some shrewd team placement from captain Andrew “Strazz” Storer saw the local boys bring home the bacon in a tense afternoon’s golf.
