On Sun­day we en­joyed the company of the bowlers from Isis Cen­tral Mill play­ing for the Car­ruthers Shield. We had a to­tal of 38 bowlers filling the rinks. A good af­ter­noon en­joyed by all. Re­sults were: Isis def Isis Cen­tral Mill 115-96. See­ing as we did so well, we have the op­por­tu­nity to do it all again this com­ing Sun­day when Bur­gowan Bowl­ing Club will be vis­it­ing us – 1pm start. Names in the book please. Good bowl­ing ev­ery­one.



THE best field for quite a while (in­clud­ing three vis­i­tors) com­peted in the sin­gle sta­ble­ford partly spon­sored by Rus­sell Al­bion’s do­na­tion, with some very com­pet­i­tive scores, par­tic­u­larly in the A Di­vi­sion.

Mick Hickey’s 39 points en­abled him to win A Di­vi­sion by one point from Will Martell, with Kev Sav­age lead­ing the run­downs on 37 points. Leigh Cronin won the best nine holes with 18 points.

Larry Per­shouse was out­stand­ing in B Di­vi­sion, record­ing 41 points, with run­ner-up Mark McAu­lay eight points back on 33 and Adrian Martin lead­ing the run­downs on 31. Ken Al­bion man­aged to claim the best nine holes on 17 points.

Leigh Cronin (for­mer and re­turn­ing mem­ber) also won the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot on one and 10, with Larry Per­shouse putting his ap­proach shot near­est the pin in B Di­vi­sion. No pin­shots were recorded on four and 13.

This Satur­day, mem­bers play for the last Monthly Medal for 2014 and the chance to play in the Medal of Medal­lists fi­nal. With the greens so re­cently cored, play­ing might prove a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult than usual. The best of luck to those yet to claim a medal this year.

It is also the last chance to bring a plate for an after-game snack.

Fi­nal re­minder: Time is run­ning out to com­plete both Sebs’ and pairs’ match play cham­pi­onship com­pe­ti­tions. Re­main­ing qual­i­fiers, please check the no­tice­board and ar­range the next match with your op­po­nent.


IN THE Thurs­day sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion, Coralie Vol­gyesi again (!) won the day with an im­pres­sive score of 41 points to win from Vicki McAu­lay on 35 points.

Joy Cart­ner, re­turn­ing for her first game in more than six weeks, col­lected a run­down. Wel­come back Joy. Robyn Robin­son won the ap­proach.

This Thurs­day, the Vets join us for a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with a hit-off at noon, spon­sored by popular vis­i­tors Ian and Jen­nifer McKay. Be pre­pared for the re­cently cored greens.

On Satur­day, mem­bers played a sin­gle sta­ble­ford, partly spon­sored by Rus­sell Al­bion’s do­na­tion, with Vicki McAu­lay scor­ing 35 for the sec­ond time in the week to win from Joan Wright on 33, with Val Plath scor­ing a run­down on 32 points.

He­len Ric­cia­rdi scored 20 points to win the best nine, while Joy Cart­ner won the ap­proach on one and 10.

This Satur­day we play for the fi­nal Satur­day Monthly Goblet, made a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult with the greens so re­cently cored.

A re­minder to bring a plate for an after-game snack.


A GREAT turnout for the work­ing bee meant the greens were cored, sanded, fer­tilised and wa­tered by early af­ter­noon, and the trees on the shed side of the course cut down and cut into re­mov­able lengths ready for a follow-up on Wed­nes­day. We hope for another good roll up to fin­ish that task on both sides of the high­way.

It is almost im­pos­si­ble to ex­press the thanks of com­mit­tee mem­bers to all the mem­bers who were in­volved in th­ese de­mand­ing phys­i­cal tasks on such a hot day – the ef­forts are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated, as the ef­forts of the ladies who pro­vided us with a much-needed smoko break.

Ob­vi­ously there is no re­port for Tues­day’s com­pe­ti­tion, which has been moved to Thurs­day

and mem­bers join with the lady mem­bers for a sin­gle sta­ble­ford spon­sored by our vis­i­tors Ian and Jen­nifer McKay.

Play will still hit off at noon, not at the usual Thurs­day start­ing time for the ladies.

Full de­tails of the re­sults for this Thurs­day and next Tues­day in next week’s golf notes.


TWENTY-SIX play­ers turned up to play this morn­ing while it was still cool in the day.

The win­ner by a good mar­gin was Mick Ryan with 28 and los­ing 4.3 off his hand­i­cap. Sec­ond was Peter Macau­ley on 31 and los­ing 2.4 and Col Den­nett eas­ing out Marie Chap­man for third with 32 and los­ing 1.1.

Col Den­nett must have got over his putting yips be­cause he man­aged only nine putts for the nine holes and well done. The B Grade Ap­proach on the first was won by Di Row­ley, Mick Hickey took out the A Grade Long­est Drive and Bob Cochrane the B Grade Long­est Drive. Mick Ryan topped off a stel­lar day by tak­ing out the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the sixth.

Next week we will play the Back Nine in a Sin­gle Sta­ble­ford for Mug Day, a de­par­ture from the norm but then again a change is as good as a hol­i­day.

The Christ­mas game and din­ner list is out so mem­bers please fill it out if you are to be at­tend­ing the game to be held at Her­vey Bay on De­cem­ber 14. Cost per head is $22.50, which in­cludes 18 holes of golf, a shared buggy and a tra­di­tional Christ­mas din­ner. Those who want to take ad­van­tage of the bus, please in­di­cate this as we must know the num­bers.

Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
