Played in mild conditions at Ranfurlie on Friday 24 February GMV members and their guests enjoyed a perfect light lunch before being tested on the challenging course.
Before play host GM Peter Butler, told the gathering how the club had sold off the Amstel course and as a consequence were now upgrading the driving range which would incorporate a number of under cover bays. Also notable was the construction of a large water storage facility and a redesigned 9th hole which comes into play early April.
The golf course got the better of most of the field and indicative of the challenge was that the best singles score of the day was achieved by Samuel Langford who is the assistant superintendent at Woodlands. The teams event was won by the MiClub group comprising of Richard Berry, Chris Little, Michael Umbers and Yarra Yarra GM, Peter Vlahandreas and they had a combined score of 91 points (best 2 scores counted on each hole).
