MEN MEM­BERS played a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day af­ter­noon on one of the hottest days this year.

With play­ers grouped in A Di­vi­sion, Peter Hut­ton stole the day with 38 points from Len Stal­lard on 36 points.

Run­down went to Kev Sav­age, C. Scott, Phil Luck­ett, Damien Dowling and Craig Reynolds.

Damien claimed the pin­shot on 1&10, Clin­ton Dowling on 4&13, while the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach was won by the youngest Scott and the B Di­vi­sion pin­shot by Adrian Martin.

In the fi­nal of the Men’s Pairs Match­play cham­pi­onship, Rod­ney Wag­ner and Ge­off Jar­rett over­came the Keith Rule and Larry Per­shouse com­bi­na­tion to win with two holes to play.

In the sin­gle Sebs Match­play com­pe­ti­tion, Larry Per­shouse meets Peter Steel in the fi­nal to be played soon.

This Satur­day as a warm-up for the Medal of Medal­lists play-off the fol­low­ing Satur­day, we of­fer a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion with hit-off at 12.30pm as usual.

As men­tioned last week and in a spe­cial Town & Coun­try re­port, as part of the na­tional Play­golf Week, the club is hold­ing a Come and Try Day this Sun­day, Novem­ber 23, and in­vites non-mem­bers to join us for a free three-per­son am­brose over 12 holes, hit­ting off at 12.30pm.

Mem­bers are re­quested to form teams by ask­ing friends and fam­ily to com­pete with them in an en­joy­able af­ter­noon’s com­pe­ti­tion, fol­lowed by a tasty after-game snack. WOMEN VICKI McAU­LAY scored 37 points to win the Thurs­day sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion from Rose Cochrane only a point be­hind. Val Plath won the one run­down on 35 points.

This Thurs­day, of course, each mem­ber is re­quested to in­vite a non-mem­ber to play in a spe­cial nine-hole two-per­son am­brose com­pe­ti­tion as part of the na­tional Play­golf Week.

A lunchtime tasty snack is part of the free morn­ing’s play (ladies, take note to bring a plate). All vis­i­tors wel­come. Hit-off time is 8.30am.

On Satur­day, Sophie Martell re­turned to the win­ners’ cir­cle to win the sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 39 points from Rae McCliskie on 36, with a run­down to Val Plath, who also claimed the ladies’ ap­proach.

This Satur­day we again play in a club-spon­sored sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion – see you there for the 12.30pm hit-off.

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 that­mo­sis@hot­mail.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.
