Lakeview Golf Club
But it was great to see sponsor Matt Hitchcock of Afgri, playing at the Lakeview Dumbleyung Golf Club on Saturday 26 May 2018. Not often do we get our sponsors to play, but Matt, who hasn't played golf for a while, really enjoyed the day, even with the bit of rain, and hopefully will be out next week bringing his wife Sjaan for a game. We look forward to them becoming avid golfers. Thank you for the great sponsorship, it is really appreciated by all.
Winner for the women and making it 2 in a row, was the ageless Elizabeth Dare, obviously still keeping to the fairways, with an improvement on her last Stroke round by 23 strokes with a 78nett/116 off the stick. Runner-up was Tamara Bartram with 79nett/96 gross. Gross was won by Margie Ward 108 and her comment was that her putting was absolute rubbish with 40 putts, certainly not the winner of the putting comp.
Like the last stroke round, that honour this time went to the President Eric Gossage, who was obviously put out, from not winning before having only 24 putts this week. Eric was also the men's winner with an incredible score of 78 off the stick/66nett with his only blemish being a 7 on the last hole. Runner-up was Dave Wall with a 94/78 nett and Gross went to Howie Ward 98. Novelties were won by Eric Gossage, Daniel McDougall and Tamara Bartram x 2. There was only one birdie for the day and that honour went to Bob Hannah.
Next week is a Par event with sponsors Kukerin Rural Supplies, K&M Gooding. Names in by 12noon.

Kukerin Golf Club
On Saturday afternoon the Kukerin Golf Club held a stableford competition sponsored by RSM. A smaller field of six men and three women took to the course, the much needed rain may have deterred a few fair weather golfers. It ended up being a good golfing weather afternoon with just a couple small showers and wind to contest with, but there were no complaints.
After a good stroll, all the groups made it in with plenty of light to spare. Therese King brought her ‘A game’ and was the winner for the ladies bagging 33 points closely followed by Jenny Joyce with 30 points. For the men, Scott Gray came out on top having a good day with 38 points, Tim Adams was runner up with a good 36 points.
All KGC members are to get their Subs in ASAP to be eligible for trophies. This Saturday is a Par competition sponsored by Cambinata Yabbies. Names in by 12.

Dumbleyung Men's Hockey Club
All Blacks fought back hard but Dumbleyung defence kept up the great work and even managed to prevent any goals in an open goal - after some ‘specky saves’ from goalie Owen Wigg!
The team managed another goal as a result of a nice pass from Mark Smith to Courtney Bairstow - who scored a successful shot in the back of the goals!
At this point the lead was looking good although not long after, All Blacks fought back and snuck a goal in bringing the score to 2-1 and motivating the men to keep up defence.
With some play in the attacking D, All blacks were proving desperate and were pulled up on a deliberate chop on our sticks. The umpires called a penalty flick. After some quick team discussions Courtney Bairstow took the flick and with a beautiful shot going past the goalie - final score 3-1.
Better players were unknown this week but the spectators were very impressed with the whole team effort and especially by the work of goalie Owen Wigg.
There is a bye this week due to the Junior’s carnival.

Dumbleyung Netball Club
The smiles cannot be removed from our Ducks who scored their first win for the season! Our Ducks went into this game against Cardinals Force 1 feeling confident and had set the task of achieving 12 goals per quarter for the game. The game started with our Ducks gaining the first Centre pass, of which was converted to a goal quickly.
Following suit, our defence in Clare Smith, Ro Ball, Amanda Gilfellon, Jenny West, Hayley White and Pip Gooding worked hard to secure rebounds and take advantage of turnovers to safely get the ball down to our goal end. Alison Peters set the pace as Centre for the majority of the game, keeping the ball free flowing and finding space across the court, ensuring the ball made its way to goal shooters in Chloe McDougall and Tegan Hall who converted to perfection.
Our Ducks, who were looking set for a good win, kept their composure throughout the game with a few knocks being felt across the court. One Duck in particular, has a pretty big bruise on her wing as a result!
The final score was Dumbleyung (63) to Cardinals Force 1 (26). Best players for Dumbleyung included Amanda Gilfellon, Chloe McDougall and Clare Smith. Congratulations Ducks on your first win of the season and for smashing your own goal for the day! It was a brilliant game and one all players should be proud of!
Our next game is Round 6 Saturday 9th June versus Broomehill at the Katanning Leisure Centre, Court 4 at 1.30pm. This is very much our derby match and will be a great game to come along to support our Ducks!
