THE Tiger Sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion planned to follow the AGM was un­for­tu­nately washed out and might be played this com­ing Satur­day, our fi­nal day of for­mal com­pe­ti­tion for the year, de­pend­ing on the pres­i­dent’s choice.

The AGM held on Satur­day elected a man­age­ment com­mit­tee with in­suf­fi­cient mem­bers. It is hoped that by the first meet­ing sched­uled for Satur­day, De­cem­ber 20, the com­mit­tee will be com­plete. That meet­ing be­gins at 11am be­fore the usual hol­i­day BBB com­pe­ti­tion hits off at 12.30pm.

At the AGM the re­turn­ing pres­i­dent, Ken Al­bion, spoke of the suc­cess­ful year just past and praised the team of com­mit­tee mem­bers and the co-op­er­a­tion of so many club mem­bers in ful­fill­ing the num­ber-one pri­or­ity for the year – im­proved fair­ways and greens.

Other pos­i­tive achieve­ments in­cluded the pur­chase of a new and a re­con­di­tioned greens mower (state grant as­sisted); tak­ing de­liv­ery of a new trac­tor and front-end loader; ter­mite re­moval from the club­house; re­pairs to sec­tions dam­aged by the ter­mites; and the gen­er­ous do­na­tions by the Vets As­so­ci­a­tion to pur­chase new equip­ment and re­pair oth­ers. The ma­jor goals for 2015 are the pur­chase of a fair­ways mower and a new and im­proved en­trance and drive­way and con­tin­u­ing im­prove­ment of the course.

The pres­i­dent said it was es­pe­cially dif­fi­cult to re­place long-term sec­re­tary Cecily Fay, such an en­er­getic and ex­tremely com­pe­tent per­son, but he was de­lighted when Joan Wright was unan­i­mously cho­sen as a life mem­ber after be­ing nom­i­nated by the com­mit­tee and praised by for­mer pres­i­dent Rod­ney Wag­ner, for­mer cap­tain Peter Russo and the pres­i­dent for her years of ex­em­plary ser­vice as ju­nior co-or­di­na­tor, fol­lowed by years as ladies’ cap­tain.

The club looks for­ward to a suc­cess­ful 2015.


THE last Thurs­day com­pe­ti­tion for the golf­ing year was a sin­gle sta­ble­ford, won by re­tir­ing cap­tain Vicki Wyeth with 33 points, on a count­back from Rose Cochrane, with one run­down to Joy Cart­ner. The best nine holes went to Coralie Vol­gyesi, the club’s new ladies’ cap­tain.

This Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 11, the ladies will en­joy their Christ­mas lunch at Vint­ners’ Win­ery, to be­gin at 11.30am.

The Satur­day com­pe­ti­tion to follow the AGM was washed out as de­tailed in the men’s notes. The com­pe­ti­tion for this Satur­day, our fi­nal for­mal golf­ing day for the year, could be a tiger sta­ble­ford, if the pres­i­dent so chooses. Check the men’s notes.


ON TUES­DAY, mem­bers set out to play the fi­nal of the Monthly VIP stroke com­pe­ti­tion but sadly the wel­come rain cut the round short and the fi­nal will be played next Tues­day.

A sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion over nine holes re­placed the stroke event, with many scores near or be­low par.

In A Di­vi­sion, Nigel Radin scored nett 36 to win from Dave Robin­son on 36.5, run­ner-up on a count­back from Keith Rule. In B Di­vi­sion, Roger Draper on 33.5 nett was one shot ahead of run­ner-up Bob Champ­ney on 34.5, with Peter Hut­ton sec­ond run­ner-up on 35.

Neil Rieck put his sec­ond shot in the hole to win the men’s ap­proach, while Joan Wright was near­est the pin to win the women’s ap­proach.

Paul McCar­ragher didn’t fig­ure in the men’s win­ners’ list but recorded 30 nett to lead the Chook Run win­ners. Other win­ners were Roger Draper, Robyn Robin­son and Bob Champ­ney (33), and Peter Hut­ton (34) on a spin.

Next week we again at­tempt to play the fi­nal of the VIP stroke com­pe­ti­tion. Hit-off is at noon.


CLEAR skies greeted the 18 play­ers who turned up for Mug Day and after the wel­come rain the course looked great.

A sim­ple Stroke and Putt game saw the rest of us bur­gled by Ed Con­nell with a 31 but luck­ily the Hand­i­cap­per was on hand to knock 3.5 off his hand­i­cap for next week. Sec­ond on 32 and los­ing 2.4 was Bill Kirch­hof and third was Troy Stone, back after a long ab­sence with 33 and los­ing 1.3 off his hand­i­cap.

The least putts went to Len (I Never Win Any­thing) Stal­lard and Bill Kirch­hof, both with 13 putts. Adam Smith showed us all up by not only win­ning the 1st B Grade ap­proach but also the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 4th. Terry Small­man took out the A Grade Long­est Drive and Ed Con­nell again gets his name in the pa­per with the B Grade Long­est drive.

As to­day was the last chance for play­ers to win points for the Player of the Year or any other of the yearly prizes, I was happy to present to Len (I Never Win Any­thing) Stal­lard the prize of a great bot­tle of scotch and glasses combo for his ef­fort in win­ning the Golden Cir­cle on the 4th/13th at 2.48m. Well done and con­grat­u­la­tions and maybe now we will get some peace from his com­plain­ing.

Next week is the Christ­mas Party and game at Her­vey Bay Golf Course. Tee-off time is 7.30am so be there by 7am so we can or­gan­ise the bug­gies and cards. The game will be a Two Per­son Am­brose so pick your part­ners and let me know as soon as pos­si­ble on the day. The Christ­mas lunch will be served at about 12.30pm and the so­cial club will pro­vide drinks at the ta­bles for the mem­bers.

The so­cial club now has a Face­book page ac­ces­si­ble from the web­site or just type in Childers Dis­trict So­cial Golf Club into your Find friends on your Face­book page. You can leave com­ments but be nice!

Have a great week and see you on Sun­day bright and early.
