MEN MEM­BERS were sur­prised when Satur­day ar­rived with the prom­ise of a day’s play rather than a washout.

In the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion the heav­ier fair­ways and slower greens seemed to favour cer­tain play­ers while hand­i­cap­ping many oth­ers.

Clin­ton Dowl­ing pro­duced a sub-par round to record 40 points and win A Di­vi­sion from Kev Sav­age on 37 points, with Norm Plath record­ing the best nine hole score of 20.

In B Di­vi­sion John Hin­ton won, also with 40 points, from Rod­neyWag­ner on 33, with Ge­off Jar­rett win­ning the best nine holes scor­ing 19 points.

John Hin­ton won the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach on 1&10, while Blake Dowl­ing was near­est the pin with his drive on 4&13 (3.15m).

Next Satur­day Clin­ton and Fiona Dowl­ing’s Isis Tyres spon­sor the day – the com­pe­ti­tion be­ing a sin­gle stable­ford not a four ball as orig­i­nally ad­vised.

It’s al­ways a great af­ter­noon.

See you there for the 12:30 hit-off. WOMEN THURS­DAY was aban­doned in the wet con­di­tions – so next Thurs­day the com­pe­ti­tion will be de­cided by hit-off time at 8.00am.

On Satur­day a small group of mem­bers played in a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion, JoanWright win­ning with 32 points and So­phie Martell the best nine holes.

So­phie was also near­est the pin with her ap­proach on 6&15. This Satur­day mem­bers will play in the Isis Tyres spon­sored com­pe­ti­tion – a sin­gle stable­ford. See you there for the 12.30 hit-off. VETS OVER 40 play­ers ar­rived for the stroke ver­sus par com­pe­ti­tion held on Tues­day, with the round go­ing smoothly in spite of the larger num­bers.

Michael Stan­ton was the over­all win­ner of the day with a cred­itable plus 3 for the 18 holes.

In A Di­vi­sion Gary Car­lon won on plus 2, with run­ner-up Paul McCar­ragher on plus 1 and Marg Dennett 2nd run­ner-up also on plus 1. He­len Ricciardi won the best nine holes with plus 3.

Bob Fraser stayed level with par to win B Di­vi­sion from BobWerne on mi­nus 1, Chris Fitzsi­mons 2nd run­ner-up on mi­nus 2, with Co­ralie Vol­gyesi win­ning the best nine holes with plus 3.

Kev Den­ham put his sec­ond shot in the hole on 1&10 to win the men’s ap­proach, while Robyn Robin­son claimed the women’s ap­proach on 6&15, a cen­time­tre from the pin, and the com­bined ap­proach on 4&13, not quite as close.

Chook Run win­ners were: Robyn Robin­son (31 nett), Co­ralie Vol­gyesi, Kev Sav­age, Rae McCliskie (32), Marg and Col Dennett, Gary Car­lon and Michael Stan­ton (33 each).

Next week on March 3 we re­turn to the popular sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion – see you there for the noon hit-off. SO­CIAL AF­TER the cy­clone that wasn’t and the floods that went else­where 24 play­ers turned up to play the first round of the 18 holes Odds and Evens com­pe­ti­tion us­ing only the Odd num­bers for to­day.

It was de­cid­edly steamy on the course which could ex­plain the score which in most cases left a lot to be de­sired.

Say­ing that con­grat­u­la­tions to Rhonda Zahn who man­aged a cred­i­ble 34 and los­ing in the process 2.9 off her hand­i­cap. Sec­ond was Bill Kirch­hof who man­aged 35 and lost 1.0 and then a tie be­tween Michael Stan­ton and Col Dennett which on count back went to Col who lost 0.5.

The A Grade Long­est Drive was won by Col Dennett who to lis­ten to him was hav­ing a cow of a game, yeah right, the B Grade Long­est Drive to Chris Fitzsim­mons, the Com­bined near­est the Pin on the 13th to Michael Stan­ton but well out­side the re­quired mea­sure­ment to take the lead in the Golden Cir­cle, the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th to Terry Smallman and the Least Putts to Peter Ma­caulay, Bill Long and Paul McCar­ragher with 13 each.

There was a state­ment made by the Cap­tain to clar­ify sev­eral points of Golf Rules, Rule 27-1-a,b,c, Lost Ball or out of Bounds and Rule 27-2-a,b,c, Pro­vi­sional Ball to clar­ify the Rules for those mem­bers in doubt.

It has also been de­cided to not al­low the So­cial Club Out of Bounds Rules and Play­ers will now play as per the Rules of Golf.

The Pre­ferred Lie So­cial Club Rule of one Card length will con­tinue but only on the Fair­way be­ing played.

The Haz­ard Rule will also stay but to be used only when it is deemed prob­a­ble that in­jury could en­sue and only on the okay of your Card marker.

Any player who needs ex­tra clar­i­fi­ca­tion of the Rules can see the Cap­tain at the next game for a loan of the Rule Book.

Next week is Mug Day for March, Stroke and Putt off the Front Nine, 7.30am start. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
