Isis Town and Country - - Life -


AN INVIT­INGLY warm pre-spring day saw a strong num­ber of play­ers ar­rive for the club–spon­sored four­ball sta­ble­ford pairs with se­cret part­ners.

Cyn­thia Draper scored a hole–in–one on num­ber 10, the third such feat this year, while on num­ber 1 He­len Ric­cia­rdi put her sec­ond shot in the hole for an ea­gle – con­grat­u­la­tions to both women.

Adrian Martin and Keith Rule won the com­pe­ti­tion with a com­bined 74 points on a count­back from Blake Dowling and part­ner Joan Wright, with a num­ber of run­downs. Dave Robin­son and Vicki McAu­lay won the best nine holes with 38 points.

The A Di­vi­sion pin­shots went to Mark McAu­lay (2.01m) on 1&10 and Dave Robin­son (3.43m) on 4&13. For the B Di­vi­sion Adrian Martin (2.75m) won the pin­shot on 4&13 and Ken Al­bion the ap­proach on 1&10. Cyn­thia Draper nat­u­rally won the Ladies’ ap­proach with her hole–in–one.

Next week is Monthly Medal and play­ers are re­minded to bring a plate for an after game snack. Here is also a re­minder for Match Play qual­i­fiers in both sin­gles and pairs to com­plete their rounds, some yet to play the first one.


THE two Vicki’s en­joyed the 3 club stroke event, with Vicki McAu­lay win­ning from Vicki Wyeth by two shots with a score of 71 nett. Coralie Vol­gyesi won a ball for most shots.

Seven ladies trav­elled to Bund­aberg on Sun­day, Au­gust 24, for their Ladies’ Open Day. Vicki Wyeth en­joyed her day out win­ning the C Grade com­pe­ti­tion on 35 points and also the ma­jor raf­fle – a money tree! Mon­ica Madsen and Joan Wright claimed ap­proach shots.

This Thurs­day and Satur­day, we play for the Septem­ber Monthly Gob­lets.


IN SPITE of some no­table ab­sences, another strong field con­tested the stroke ver­sus par com­pe­ti­tion, the first round of play for the Cooper Cup.

Vicki McAu­lay scored plus 4 to be the over­all win­ner on the day. Neil Rieck with plus 2 won the A Di­vi­sion from vis­i­tor Ken Stevens on plus 1, with Mar­garet Den­nett next on mi­nus 1. Keith Rule won the best nine holes on plus 1.

Larry Per­shouse won the B Di­vi­sion with plus 2 on a count­back from Joan Wright, with Rose Cochrane next on plus 1. Ed Con­nell won the best nine with plus 4!

Ap­proaches were won by Neil Rieck, 0.1 from the hole and Vicki McAu­lay on 0.86m.

Vicki led the Chook Run with 28 nett, from Ed Con­nell (29), Joy Cart­ner (31), Larry Per­shouse (32), Joan Wright and Roger Draper (33) on spin–offs.

Next week back to our favourite, the sin­gle sta­ble­ford – see you there for the 12 noon hit-off.


TO­DAY we had 22 mem­bers take the field with for the first time this year five ladies tak­ing the field.

Most play­ers recorded good scores although some of us should have stayed in bed or taken up cro­chet, no names no pack drill.

The win­ner to­day was Len (never win any­thing) Stal­lard with a cred­i­ble 24 points and los­ing to thun­der­ous ap­plause 4.5 off his hand­i­cap. Sec­ond was Bill Long with 22 and los­ing 2.6 and third was Bob (Ba­nana Bob) Fraser with 21 points and los­ing 1.4. Bob also man­aged to take out the B Grade Long­est Drive.

Rose Cochrane won the B Grade Ap­proach on the 10th with Peter (Mac) Macau­ley win­ning the Com­bined near­est the Pin on the 13th. Rhonda Zahn won the Ladies Near­est the Pin on the 15th with a great shot and reached a piv­otal point of her game with her first ever Birdie and well done. Dave Durie last but not least won the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th.

Next week we are play­ing the Ea­gles Nest at Isis over 18 holes with a lunch after the Game. Tee off time will be 8.00am to al­low for the Ea­gles Nest play­ers to travel up from Her­vey Bay. It will be a Stroke and Putt game.

Don’t for­get to put your names down for the PINK Ball Day on Septem­ber 28 to aid Prostate Can­cer re­search. Teams of three are needed for the game and rules will be avail­able to all on the day.

Next Sun­day I will have a run­down of those mem­bers who have scored points in the Player of the year Com­pe­ti­tion for those need­ing to know how they are go­ing. Also next week we will have the fi­nal game for this quar­ter for the Golden Cir­cle Prize with Dave Durie hold­ing the clos­est dis­tance at the mo­ment of 1.44m.
