Cormack Salver special

The Cormack Salver was played at the Millicent Golf Club last Monday.

A total of 27 players took to the course in cool conditions and fortunately there were only a couple of light showers of rain.

The Cormack Salver originated in 1938 when it was presented by Mrs Magnus Cormack who later became Lady Cormack.

The competition is contested between Casterton, Millicent, Mount Gambier, Naracoorte and Penola Golf Clubs with the latter admitted to the competition in 1962 and these clubs hold an annual guest day on a rotational basis.

The competition allows each club to enter two teams of three players and the aggregate score of each team is recorded and the combination with the lowest aggregate nett score is declared the winner of the Salver.

There are also prizes for the player who has the best off the stick score and the best nett score.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 had prevented the competition from taking place over the past two years, but it was back in 2022.

Millicent’s team of Kirsty Bailey, Val Williams and Sue Ireland rose to the occasion.

The trio returned an aggregate score of nett 234 to retain the Salver from the previous outing.

Bailey had the best off the stick score with an 86 and she also won the nett with a 73.

The day was rounded up with lunch served by the Millicent Women’s Catering Team and this was followed by presentation of trophies.

The raffle prizes were won by Sally Houlihan from Casterton and Bernie Jennings from Mount Gambier.

The 2023 event will be held at the Naracoorte Golf Club.
