The 2019 Eureka Senior Amateur got under way today with 64 players teeing off at the Buninyong Golf Club.


Local Helen Pascoe made the most of her knowledge of the course scoring 39 stableford points to lead the Women’s Scratch Stableford section.

In the Men’s Gross section, Ken O’Brien holds a narrow overnight lead after having a two- over-par round of 74. Close behind him after shooting a 75 is Alan Bullas followed by Ross Percy, Robert Wallace and Guy Krall who all had 76.
