Trentham Women's Open results
A nice window of fine morning weather, between some heavy overnight rain and afternoon showers, shone on the women in the Trentham Women's Open on Tuesday October 18th. Good scores were hard to come by however with the overnight rain making conditions a little damp. The course was in excellent condition despite the rain.
The scratch winner was Sandra Wicking from Kilmore Golf Club with 90. The B Grade scratch winner was Karen Dillon from Gisborne with 96, while Jan Baczynski from Trentham Golf Club won the C Grade scratch trophy with 98.
In the handicap divisions, Glenda Woods (Seymour) took out A Grade with 93-14=79, Christine Schussler (Trentham) won B Grade with 104-26=78 and Kath Jekabsons (Romsey) won C Grade with 104-29=75.
Undoubtedly the star of the day was Trentham's Jan Baczynski who won the perpetual Harry Barton Trophy for best overall handicap with her score of 98-28=70.

Nearest the pins went to Julie Hanson, Tania Cullinane and Irene Davey.
Congratulations to all who came to play, especially from a long way away, and thanks to all the volunteers who helped on the day.
Fine weather and great conditions meet junior golfers
A quality field of 26 players competed in the 2016 Trentham Junior Open Tournament on Sunday October 16. Six juniors had single-figure handicaps, and some came from as far away as Echuca, Berwick and Rosanna to play. The course was in excellent condition and recovering really well from a very wet six months of heavy rainfall. The rain stayed away until just after everyone had finished and returned to the clubhouse.

Course open despite the Big Wet
We've certainly been experiencing the Big Wet this year. However Trentham is one course that has remained open throughout the deluge. We have a few muddy patches around the course, but Trentham is well and truly open for play. Competitions are still being held, and we're looking forward to a little sunshine and relief from the rain, especially during our annual tournament that starts on Sunday 16th October (you can still enter the tournament by clicking on the banner of this website).
This video of the Trentham Falls was posted on the RedBeard Historic Bakery's Facebook page on October 3. The falls entrance is just across the Daylesford Road from our 16th green. The falls are fed by the Coliban River, Trent Creek and the Stony Creek, which flows along the east boundary of our course.
Three great reasons to visit the cool country of Trentham: Trentham Golf Club, RedBeard Bakery and the Trentham Falls!

Golf Victoria Girls Golf Getaway comes to Trentham
Girls and their parents were full of praise for the 'beautiful' Trentham Golf Club, selected to host the inaugural Golf Victoria Girls Golf Getaway on September 10 and 11. Twelve teams from Melbourne and across Victoria, and as far away as Portland and Wodonga, took to the course in a chase for the Kay Mahlook Shield. Teams of three competed, with the best two scores each round counting towards the team’s tally. The event was won by a team from Golf Peninsula, with a team from the Western District runners-up.
Given the recent rain that has been crippling much of rural Victoria, the players at Trentham were greeted with good golfing conditions, albeit with overcast but dry weather. The course has stood up exceptionally well after a wet winter and a 45mm downpour on the Friday before the Getaway.
Girls stayed locally at Cammeray Waters in Woodend and the Kyneton Bushland Resort. Trentham's Birdie Kitchen caterers Larissa and Karen also did a terrific job providing the Saturday dinner, Sunday breakfast and lunch for all the girls, parents and Golf Victoria staff.
