MEN JEFF Free­man in his first ever at­tempt achieved the hon­our of be­ing the Medal of Medal­lists’ win­ner for 2014, his trophy a per­ma­nent re­minder of his achieve­ment. Con­grat­u­la­tions Jeff!

His round of 68 nett was two ahead of Will Martell and Peter Hut­ton, Will claim­ing sec­ond on a count­back from Peter.

In the club-spon­sored sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion played simultaneously, Will won A Di­vi­sion on a count­back from Kev Sav­age with run­downs to Peter Russo (71), Gary Car­lon and Kieran Cronin (72).

Jeff’s 68 also won the B Di­vi­sion com­pe­ti­tion on a count­back from Adrian Martin, run­ner-up on a count­back from Ivan Philpott, with run­downs to Bob Werne (69) and Peter Hut­ton (70).

Leigh Cronin won the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot and Peter Hut­ton the B Di­vi­sion pin­shot on 4&13.

To con­clude the trophy pre­sen­ta­tion Blake Dowling was pre­sented with a me­mento of his record equalling round of 66 recorded ear­lier this year – the score­card mounted and framed with a very ap­pro­pri­ate photo and in­scrip­tion to set it off – a me­mento to be trea­sured.

He shares the record with Leigh Cronin and Chris Crouch.

On the Fri­day evening be­fore the play­off the club cel­e­brated awards night for both se­nior and ju­nior mem­bers with pre­sen­ta­tions to all cham­pi­onship win­ners dur­ing the year, fol­lowed by a Cal­cutta auc­tion­eered by the sil­ver-tongued Bill Trevor, with com­men­tary (not al­ways com­pli­men­tary) by Rod­ney Wag­ner.

The sup­per pro­vided by mem­bers was a taste de­light.

The AGM will be held this Satur­day, be­gin­ning at 11am.

All mem­bers are asked to at­tend this most im­por­tant meet­ing which se­lects the Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee for 2015.

The meet­ing will be fol­lowed by a Tiger Sta­ble­ford with a draw for part­ners. WOMEN JOY Cart­ner won the fi­nal of the Thurs­day Monthly Goblet fi­nal­ists, with a nett score of 71. Con­grat­u­la­tions Joy!

In the club stroke com­pe­ti­tion Rose Cochrane won with 70 nett from Vicki Wyeth, with Rose win­ning least putts (28) and Cecily Fay the ap­proach on 4&13. This Thurs­day mem­bers will play a sin­gle sta­ble­ford.

He­len Ric­cia­rdi pre­vented Joy from claim­ing a clean sweep of the Monthly Goblet fi­nals.

Although both recorded 72 nett, He­len won the tro­phies on a count­back. Con­grat­u­la­tions He­len!

Mon­ica Madsen claimed a run­down, while Fiona Dowling put her ap­proach near­est the pin on 4&13.

Se­nior and ju­nior mem­bers and fam­i­lies en­joyed the awards’ night held the night be­fore the play­offs.

Re­fer to the men’s notes for de­tails.

A re­minder: this Satur­day the AGM be­gins at 11am and all mem­bers are asked to be present to en­sure a quorum and to choose the Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee for 2015.

A Tiger Sta­ble­ford, with a draw for part­ners, fol­lows the meet­ing. ISIS VETS ON Tues­day mem­bers played a sin­gle sta­ble­ford, record­ing some im­pres­sive scores.

In A Di­vi­sion, Kev Sav­age scored 39 points to be the over­all win­ner on a count­back from Larry Per­shouse who thus be­came the A Di­vi­sion win­ner from Norm Plath on 37 points. Dave Robin­son won best nine holes with 22 points.

Rusty Us­mar won B Di­vi­sion with 37 points from Val Plath on 34 points, with Joy Cart­ner claim­ing best nine holes with 18 points.

Joy also won the women’s ap­proach (3.51m) and Keith Rule the men’s ap­proach (0.37m).

Larry Per­shouse led the Chook Run win­ners with Dave Robin­son both on 32 nett, from Norm Plath, Rusty Us­mar and Ray Bur­rowes (33), with Joy col­lect­ing the last chicken (34) on a spin.

Next week we play the fi­nal of the VIP. Stroke com­pe­ti­tion – all monthly win­ners are el­i­gi­ble, while non-win­ners will also en­joy a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion. Hit-off at noon. CHILDERS SO­CIAL TO­DAY’S win­ner was one of the Her­vey Bay guys who travel here to play with the So­cial Club once in a while, but are al­ways wel­come, Bob Walker, who man­aged a very re­spectable 30 points and al­lowed the hand­i­cap­per to slug him 3.5 off his hand­i­cap putting him into A-grade.

Sec­ond was Ken Al­bion with 32 points and los­ing 2.4 and third was Paul McCar­ragher with 33 and los­ing 1.1 tak­ing him back into A-grade as well.

The least putts were shared by Sue Long, Rose Cochrane and Dave Durie each with 14 putts.

The B-grade long­est Drive was won by another Her­vey Bay guy Sane Shif­fke, and what a mon­ster drive it was, shame the rest of his game sucked, LOL.

The B-grade ap­proach on the 1st was won by Bob Wearne and the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th was won by Bob Cochrane.

Last but not least Len “I never win any­thing” Stal­lard not only won the 4th NTP, but also is lead­ing in the Golden Cir­cle Com­pe­ti­tion with 2.48m which ends next week on the De­cem­ber 7.

Next week, apart from it be­ing the usual Mug Day, will com­bine with the Pres­i­dents Day in a Stroke and Putt game over the front nine with a bar­be­cue after.

The usual $2 brekkie will be there and the years scor­ing com­pe­ti­tion will also close after this game.

The leader board is tight so let’s make the last game for points a good one and good luck to all.

A thank you also to those So­cial Club mem­bers who came along and helped with the clean up of the course.

I must say that I thor­oughly en­joyed cut­ting trees down, a sort of golfer re­venge for all the times the trees have jumped out in front of my ball.

It’s slowly get­ting back to some sort of good con­di­tion although hit­ting into the rough still poses prob­lems in find­ing the ball.

Once again, thanks. Catch you next Sun­day.
