THE PRE­DICTED rain ar­rived just as most play­ers had com­pleted nine holes.

The steadily fall­ing rain con­vinced most male com­peti­tors to end their round with a small num­ber of hardy play­ers com­plet­ing the 18 holes.

The small num­bers left were grouped into one Di­vi­sion for the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion. Will Martell had eas­ily the best round in the tough con­di­tions, scor­ing 39 points to win from Dave Robin­son on 36, with run­downs to John Hin­ton, Mark McAu­lay and Clin­ton Dowling. Brett Martell had the best nine hole score of 18 points.

Kev Sav­age was a mere 0.07m from the hole with his pin­shot on 1&10 – al­most a hole in one, while John Hin­ton was the only pin­shot win­ner on 4&13, win­ning the B Di­vi­sion shot.

On Satur­day mem­bers again com­pete in a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion for a club tro­phy. On the fol­low­ing Satur­day (June 28), mem­bers have an op­por­tu­nity to sup­port Blake Dowling on his trip to Mel­bourne to com­pete in the Aaron Bad­de­ley In­vi­ta­tion event. As this is the sched­uled com­bined Isis/So­cial Golf Club day, we have pro­grammed a two-per­son Am­brose event fol­lowed by a bar­be­cue sup­per.

SPE­CIAL NOTE: The Four­somes Cham­pi­onships have been changed from Satur­day, June 28, to Sun­day, June 29 – hit-off at 11am. See Flyer at Club­house for de­tails. Women THURS­DAY play­ers en­joyed per­fect weather for their sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion won by Ce­cily Fay with 32 points, from JoanWright on 31. Vicki McAu­lay won the run­down on a count­back from Rose Cochrane.

In spite of per­sis­tent rain, most of the women com­peti­tors in the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion per­se­vered, in con­trast to their male coun­ter­parts. They de­serve to be con­grat­u­lated.

Robyn Robin­son led the way with 37 points from Vicki McAu­lay on 35, with run­downs to He­len Ric­cia­rdi and Ce­cily Fay. Sophie Martell won the best nine with 17 points, while Fiona Dowling put her sec­ond shot only 0.31m from the pin to win the ladies’ ap­proach.

This Satur­day we again play a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion for a club tro­phy. Read the men’s notes for in­for­ma­tion about the fol­low­ing Satur­day (June 28)

SPE­CIAL NOTE: The Four­somes Cham­pi­onships have been changed from Satur­day, June 28 to Sun­day, June 29 – hit-off at 11am. See flyer at Club­house for de­tails. Ju­niors LAST weekend was the June monthly medal with some good scores recorded in all grades.

In the six hole event Cooper Re­hbein had a net score of 19, 5 shots un­der his hand­i­cap to win from Ryan Blinco with a net of 23. In the 9 hole di­vi­sion Wes­ley Hin­ton had a nice round of 65 to take out the medal in this di­vi­sion. The 13 hole event was closely con­tested with Chris­tian Fredrik­sen win­ning with a net 51 from Zane Fitzger­ald with a net 56.

This week will be a Chip and Putt com­pe­ti­tion with all play start­ing at 7.30am. See you there.

Isis Vets

ON TUES­DAY mem­bers played a four ball best ball stable­ford, the first in quite a while.

Rusty Us­mar was in great touch (again!) and to­gether with Bob Carne com­piled 46 points, to win on a count­back from RayWalker and Gary Gret­ton. Dave Robin­son and Mark McAu­lay recorded 44 points to be sec­ond run­ners-up, while Craig Reynolds and Bill Her­ring won the best nine holes in a count­back with 24 points.

Ce­cily Fay was 0.13m from the hole to win the ladies’ ap­proach, while Kev Sav­age was a lit­tle fur­ther away to win the men’s ap­proach.

Chook Run win­ners were: Val Plath, Keith Rule and Rusty Us­mar (31 net), Kev Den­ham (32) and Ed Con­nell (33).

Next Tues­day be pre­pared for an early start at 9am for an 18 hole sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with vis­i­tors from Mary­bor­ough here for a re­turn match – cur­rently shield hold­ers but this could change come next Tues­day.

We hope play­ers bring a plate for an af­ter game snack. Childers So­cial A SMALL field of 15 play­ers teed off to­day with most people prob­a­ble scared off by the in­clement weather which was a shame as the sun broke through and it was quite pleas ant on the course.

The win­ner to­day and fi­nally feel­ing the wrath of the hand­i­cap­per was Bill Kirch­hof on 20 Stable­ford Points and los­ing 2.5 off his hand­i­cap for his trou­bles. Len Stal­lard was sec­ond also with 20 but beaten in the count­back but still man­ag­ing to lose 2.0 and Chris Fitzsi­mons also on 20 and los­ing 1.5 points.

The win­ners list for the field was very sad with only two people able to take out the prizes, they be­ing Ed Con­nell for the B-grade Ap­proach on the 10th and the B-grade Long­est Drive and Bill Long tak­ing out the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th.

Next week will be a Two Per­son Am­brose over 18 holes, pick your part­ners. This game is the Spon­sors Thank You Day where those Spon­sors who have sup­ported the Club are in­vited to par­tic­i­pate, com­pli­ments of the So­cial Club. There will be the usual $2 brekkie and a bar­be­cue af­ter the game for one and all. Tee off time is 8am as usual.

The new club shirts have been or­dered and the cap­tain has a list for those wish­ing to pur­chase the blue bucket hats with the logo on it. The price per hat will be about $12 and they are fully ad­justable to fit.

On the fol­low­ing weekend the Isis Golf Club has in­vited the Childers District So­cial Golf Club to par­tic­i­pate in a fund rais­ing game on June 28, tee­ing off at 12.30pm. All pro­ceeds will go to spon­sor­ing one of our ju­niors to an in­vi­ta­tional in Mel­bourne, a hon­our that is well de­served as the player now hits of zero hand­i­cap at our grounds and is hop­ing to turn pro­fes­sional. I en­cour­age all the mem­bers of the so­cial club to go along and make this day a suc­cess and also play against the Isis Golf Club in a Two Per­son Am­brose for the hon­our and brag­ging rights.

Check out the Spon­sors Spe­cial Page on the club web­site at www.childer­sso­cial­ for some great bar­gains in golf carts from Bill. Limited num­bers are avail­able. Have a great Week and see you on Satur­day.
