Sun shines on Mad golfers

29 Mar 2011

Sun shines on Mad golfers Image

The second annual Mad Duck Masters on March 5 was a superb outing for the good folk of Yarra’s Edge.

Starting out at the crack of dawn, the 45 participants met at The Mad Duck Cafe for the famous egg-and-bacon brekky roll and a coffee before boarding the bus headed for Waterford Valley Golf Course.

Mother Nature promised a fabulous day as she turned it on with superb sunshine and clear skies by mid-morning showing the golfers the way to the 18th hole – each hoping for the $1000 prize for the golden hole-in-one Sponsored by Krown IT. 

It was smiles all round as Robert Hornak and Maria Parnham took out their respective longest drive competitions with Ange Dapolits from City Residential Real Estate winning the prize for closest to the pin.

After many lost balls and broken tees the crew retired to the 19th hole where the prizes were handed out, fluids were replenished and stories of the day were swapped.

The Mad Duck Cafe thanked participants and sponsors Lucas Real Estate, Emma and Toms’ Juices, Krown IT and The House of Golf.

According to organiser Sam Rowe, the talk on the street following the event reflected how enjoyable the day was for everyone involved, so naturally, Mad Duck looks forward to seeing everyone again next year.

Final team places were: City Residential Real Estate 56.5; Canix Jewellery 57; Lucas Real Estate 58.5; Smart Dox 60.5; SMS Global 62.5; The Fiery Curries 62.5; Loading Dock Bar and Grill 62.625; Emma and Toms’ Juices 65; The Mad Ducks 66.5; SOS Surveying 66.5; and the Brains Trust 71.5.
