Read the men’s notes for information regarding the ‘Come and Try Day’ three-person ambrose this Sunday, with hit-off at 12.30pm. JUNIORS LAST weekend was the final round of the Wide Bay Junior circuit hosted by Hervey Bay Golf Club.
Conditions were not ideal, with blustery winds and temperatures in the mid-30s.
Isis players were still able to perform well, with several players doing well in several divisions.
In the nine-hole girls’ event, Amara Burns was gross runner-up.
In the six-hole boys’ event, Wesley Hinton had a blinder with a 26 to easily win this event.
Wesley also dominated the yearly event, winning both the nett and gross in the Greg Norman annual event.
His dad John had to buy a new car to fit all his prizes. In the nine-hole boys’ event, Cooper Burns had an excellent 57 to easily win.
In the 18-hole events, Will Martell had an excellent score of 85 to win the second division by four strokes.
This gave him a nett 71, which was also the second best nett of the day.
In the yearly awards, Blake Dowling took out the major prize of the year, winning the Greg Norman aggregate gross for the entire year.
Essentially, this makes Blake the best-performed junior in the Wide Bay area for the year of 2014.
Once again Isis golfers acquitted themselves well on the day.
At the end of the day it was announced that Blake Dowling, Will Martell and Sophie Martell would be part of a seven-member representation at the Greg Norman Masters at Robina in early December.
This is one of the biggest junior tournaments in Australia.
On Friday of this week, Sophie Martell will travel to Brisbane to attend a function where she will accept the Girls Fayde Points Challenge Second
Division Winners trophy.
This is an eight-round competition held throughout Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast throughout the year.
By playing consistent golf she was able to come out on top of second division of this competition for girls under 18 years.
This Saturday will be an ambrose completion. All play starts at 7.30am. See you there. ISIS VETS THE monthly VIP single stroke day was sponsored this month by Rockett Refrigeration and Air-conditioning – thank you again to Brendan for the generous prizes.
Barry Steinke recorded the score of the day, his 65 nett putting Michael Stanton into second place on 69 nett on a countback from third placed Dave Robinson.
Larry Pershouse scored 68 nett to claim B Division, with Terry Smallman runner-up on 71 from Ray Burrowes on 72.
The ladies’ winner was Val Plath with 71 nett from Joy Cartner runner-up on 73, on a countback from Monica Madsen.
The approaches were won by Ray Walker for the men (in the hole again this week) and Monica won the women’s approach.
Barry Steinke easily led the Chook Run, scoring a nett 28, followed by Keith Rule (30), Monica Madsen, Dave Robinson (31) and Paul McCarragher (32).
Next Tuesday we play a four ball best ball aggregate, with a mystery draw for partners, to become known after the round.
A reminder – please arrange a team for Sunday, November 23, to play in the three-person ambrose.
Invite a friend or family member to join us for the Come and Try Day as part of the national Playgolf
Week. CHILDERS SOCIAL SUNDAY, November 16, saw 27 players turn up to play Captains Day, which is golf but not as you know it.
Apart from right-handers hitting off left-handed and vice versa, there was always the Sitting Tee Off and the Tennis Racket Tee Off, among others.
After a brekkie of bacon and egg sandwiches, we took to the course.
Ed Connell took first place with 30 points, Rhonda Zahn second with 33 and Len (I never win anything) Stallard coming in at third.
Least Putts was won by Laurie Daiken. Michael Stanton took out the A-grade Nearest the Pin on the 1st and Ken Albion the B-grade Approach on the 1st. Paul McCarragher won the B-grade Longest Drive, which rounded out the winners for the day.
Brekkie and lunch were provided by the Social Club Brekkie Club and a big thanks to Chris for his effort.
As always, an extra big thanks goes to Roz, who again volunteered her time to cook the meal for after the game
Next week, for a change, we will have a three-person Ambrose over the back nine and, being that 300 golf clubs within Australia are having a similar game, the Isis Golf Club has asked that we include our social club in the mix.
So if you have a spouse, a mate or even just an acquaintance who would like to have a hit, please bring them along and they can play for free on the day.
The idea is to promote golf in the wider community and we may even find some new recruits for the social club at the same time.
Next week we require the numbers and money for the Christmas Game at Hervey Bay, and those wanting to use the bus for the return trip.
Depending on numbers, the bus should cost about $7.50 each.
The cost for those players who have played the required 10 games is $22 a head, which includes 18 holes of golf, a shared buggy and a traditional Christmas dinner with dessert.
You may bring your partner for just the meal at a cost of $22 a head.
Those players who haven’t played the required games will be charged a pro rata cost for those games they fall short on of $2.50 a game so that the club is not out of pocket.
Any queries, please contact Paul at email@example.com or phone 0427 407 970.
To allow for the trophies to be bought and engraved, the competition games will cease on December 7.
The trophies will be presented on the Presidents Day on December 21 – the last official game of the year.
