Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

IN A BREAK to what has been the norm on Mug Day we played a Sin­gle Sta­ble­ford over the Back Nine.

Sev­eral things were high­lighted and the most glar­ing was the in­abil­ity of mem­bers to work out the scores us­ing the Hand­i­caps and the Rated In­dex for the holes. For those still in the dark the Cap­tain has a sheet show­ing how to work it out.

Apart from that the weather was very warm even for 7.30am and got even hot­ter as the morn­ing pro­gressed and the mem­bers are re­minded to carry wa­ter with them as they play the round.

So enough of the act­ing like the lo­cal school teacher and onto the game. The win­ner and fi­nally get­ting his chance at A-grade was Bob Fraser with 23 points but los­ing 3.5 off his hand­i­cap, sec­ond was Marg Den­nett and los­ing 1.9 which has man­aged to also pro­pel her into A-grade and third on a count­back was Mark Harper who didn’t need any en­cour­age­ment to go to A-grade as he was al­ready there with 21 points and los­ing 1.1.

The B-grade Ap­proach on the 10th as well as the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th were won by Bill Long, the A-grade Long­est Drive by Dave Durie, the B-grade Long­est Drive and the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 16th were won by Paul McCar­ragher and Ray Bur­rows fin­ishes off the win­ners with a prize for the Near­est the Pin on the 13th but the Golden Cir­cle is still held by Ken Al­bion at 2.67m.

Thanks to all those who helped with the bar­be­cue, the clean­ing up and the emp­ty­ing of the bins and a spe­cial thanks to Michelle, a vis­i­tor who cut the onions up for the bar­be­cue and cried all the time and to Paul her part­ner who acted as chauf­feur for Mick.

Next week we will have a sim­ple Stroke and Putt game over the Front Nine, to ev­ery­one’s re­lief, tee­ing off at 7.30am and don’t for­get to put your name down for the Christ­mas game and meal be­fore the last game this month and pay so that num­bers can be fi­nalised and mull over the sug­ges­tion that in­stead of Tro­phies this year we give en­graved Mugs, Glasses or some­thing sim­i­lar that can be used in­stead of be­ing stored in the cup­board and for­got­ten.

Also a big thanks to those mem­bers who made them­selves avail­able for the tree re­moval and Greens cor­ing days held last week. Although quite hot we man­aged to clean up most of the dead trees and get the Greens cored and sanded just in time for the rain which has made quite a dif­fer­ence to the con­di­tion of the course. There will be another work­ing bee some­time this month to re­move the last of the dead tress so keep an eye out for any an­nounce­ments made as we need will­ing work­ers to get the jobs done.

Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
