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.
IN HER ELEMENT: Arianna Walters.
