Trentham Falls Plate entries open
Tuesday 20th May at 9.00am
The annual women's Trentham Falls Plate is on again for 2014. The plate is a women's Stableford event for teams of three players from the same club. Individual entries are also accepted.
The team with the highest aggregate Stableford score will hold the plate for one year. Individual trophies will be awarded to each winning team member, and there are trophies for best individual Stableford scores.
With recent rains, the course will be in great condition, so get together a team of three to 'play for the Plate', or just enter yourself for individual honours.
The cost is $54 for a team of three, or $18 for individual entry. This includes morning tea and lunch. Entries close on Tuesday 13th May, or when field capacity is reached.

Entries need to be endorsed by your club's women's secretary.

Superb day for Kyneton-Trentham Challenge
On Wednesday 26th March, Trentham hosted a team of 14 women from Kyneton Golf Club in the annual Kyneton-Trentham Challenge.
Bernie Waring (left) won individual honours for Trentham with 46 points, while Angela Fooks (right) with 40 points was best for Kyneton.
The weather was superb -- bright sunshine, just a hint of a breeze and perfect playing conditions. There is still good run on the fairways, and the greens, as always, were immaculate.
A coastal challenge for the Trentham Travellers
The latest golfing adventure for the Trentham Travellers took them to two spectacular south-west coastal golf courses. On the 17th and 18th March 2014 they travelled to play at Warrnambool and Port Fairy.
Bob Penrose tees off at scenic Port Fairy on the Trentham Travellers' trip.
Neil Aplin joined the Travellers for his first trip. A leisurely Sunday lunch at Smythesdale was a nice break in the journey to Warrnambool.
Rod Justice was the best player over the two days, winning the trip trophy for his 39 points at Port Fairy and his 33 points at Warrnambool. Rod's Port Fairy score also saw him win the Billy Roberts trophy, awarded for the best 18-hole score on the trip.
Picturesque Trentham 'remarkably presented': Golf Australia magazine
Golf Australia magazine (August 2013) featured an article, written by Golf Australia Editor Brendan James, that follows a golf course trail north-west of Melbourne through Victoria's Goldfields region.
Trentham is one course featured, and is described as having 'lush playing surfaces flanked by tall stands of mature native trees ... creating a superb mix of holes'.
Brendan concluded by saying 'it is remarkable how well the course is presented, an added bonus when you can play in such a picturesque setting'.
Trentham is a 'hidden gem' which provides greater golfing joy than the small green fee may suggest, says Brendan James (photo: Brendan James, Golf Australia magazine).
