Isis Town and Country - - Sport -


A GREAT week­end for the Isis Golf Club culminated in a highly suc­cess­ful Men’s Open Car­ni­val on Sun­day with more than 80 play­ers from Isis and sur­round­ing Wide Bay clubs com­pet­ing in the teams’ and in­di­vid­ual events. Un­for­tu­nately Isis couldn’t repeat its win­ning per­for­mances of last year, with the Mary­bor­ough team of D. Haber­man, R. New­ton, C. Backer, H. Smith and A. Gees claim­ing both the es­teemed Isis Cup (first played for in 1936), with the best gross score and the Isis Cen­tral Mill Shield with the best netscore. In the 18 hole gross events, Scott Warren (Gin Gin) again proved his ex­per­tise, win­ning the A Divi­sion with a one un­der par 69 from R. New­ton (Mary­bor­ough) on 73. T. El­liott (Biggen­den) won B Divi­sion on 82, on a count­back from I. McDuff (Her­vey Bay). C-divi­sion win­ner was M. Barnes (Bund­aberg) on 83 from I. Gab­bert (Gin Gin) on 88. In the net events, H. Smith (Mary­bor­ough) recorded net 67 to win A-divi­sion from S. Aitcheua (Bund­aberg), run­ner-up on a count­back with 69 net. Peter Steel was the home club’s first win­ner, in B-divi­sion, scor­ing net 66 for a clear vic­tory, from B. Cuth­bert­son (Biggen­den) on 68. Ex-Isis Travis Mit­tel­heuser (Bar­gara) with 71 net won on a count­back from another Isis player in Kev Den­ham. The spe­cial award for the Vets’ player of the day went to Peter Steel for his score of 66 net. Pin­shots went to: Clin­ton Dowling in A-divi­sion on 1 and 10 and R. New­ton on 4 and 13. D. Mil­lar (Her­vey Bay) in B-divi­sion won the pin­shot on 1 and 10 and K. Shaw (Gin Gin) on 4 and 13. No C Divi­sion player’s drive ended on ei­ther green. Thanks go to the many helpers who or­gan­ised the day. CLUB EVENTS MEN ON SATUR­DAY both men and women mem­bers played in a four ball best ball stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with part­ners drawn by the cap­tain. Play­ing with dif­fer­ent part­ners and mem­bers in their groups pro­vided a dif­fer­ent but pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence. Bill Cowan and Robyn Robin­son com­bined well to com­pile 45 points with Kev Sav­age and Mark McAu­lay run­ners-up on 44 points. Run­downs went to Roger Draper and Vicki McAu­lay and He­len Ric­cia­rdi and So­phie Martell both pairs on 42 points. Clin­ton Dowling claimed the A-divi­sion pin­shot on 1 and 10 (6.9m), Bill Cowan on 4 and 13 (2.6m), with no B-divi­sion player claim­ing on ei­ther hole. Cyn­thia Draper won the women’s ap­proach on 4 and 13 (1.68) and Vicki McAu­lay 6 and 15 (0.17m). This Satur­day is Isis Mill Traders’ Day with all 3-Per­son team po­si­tions filled. Re­mem­ber the early start at 11.30am to en­sure there is time for af­ter-game so­cial­is­ing and pre­sen­ta­tion of prizes. WOMEN DIANE ROW­LEY won the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 33 points from Co­ralie Vol­gyesi on 32, Lisa Cooney win­ning best nine holes with 19 points. Co­ralie was also near­est the pin with her ap­proach on 4 and 13. This Thurs­day we play a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion, hit-off at 8.30am. As the women joined the men in the com­bined four­ball best ball com­pe­ti­tion, re­sults are in the men’s sec­tion of the notes. Next Satur­day mem­bers play in the Isis Mill Traders’ 3-Per­son Am­brose at 11.30am. ISIS VETS ON TUES­DAY, Vets en­joyed their favourite com­pe­ti­tion – the sin­gle stable­ford. In a day of low scor­ing, Nigel Radin played well to record 38 points to be the over­all win­ner for the round. In A Divi­sion Neil Rieck won with 36 points from Phil Luck­ett on 34. Best nine went to Norm Plath on 19 points. Scott White was B Divi­sion win­ner with 35 points on a count­back from Kev Den­ham, Co­ralie Vol­gyesi win­ning best nine with 20 points. Ap­proach win­ners were: for the women, Co­ralie Vol­gyesi (0.79m); for the men, Phil Luck­ett (0.38m); and for the com­bined ap­proach, Nigel Radin (0.43m). Ted Buck­land led the Chook Run win­ners with 31 net, from Kev Den­ham (32), Barry Steinke, Neil Rieck (33), Nigel Radin and Ken Al­bion (34). This Tues­day, March 31, mem­bers play a sin­gle stable­ford an noon. CHILDERS SO­CIAL A FINE morn­ing, not too hot af­ter the days we have been get­ting, saw 18 play­ers turn up for the game at Bar­gara last Sun­day. The first in­di­ca­tion of trouble was the slick­ness of the prac­tice green, with hopes the course greens would be a bit slower came to naught, as we learnt that they were even faster. I will not em­bar­rass any­one with putts scores but let’s just say records were bro­ken in no un­cer­tain terms. Speaking of which, one per­son who man­aged to tame the greens was Scotty White, who won the least putts with 29. The over­all win­ner for the day was Paul McCar­ragher with a net 65 knock­ing 4.5 off his hand­i­cap, sec­ond was Scotty White on 78 on a count­back from Chris Fitzsi­mons also on 78, Scotty lost 1.0 and Chris 0.5 off their hand­i­caps. Chris also man­aged to take out the B-grade Long­est Drive, with Paul tak­ing out the A-grade Long­est Drive. Bob Champ­ney got his name in the re­sults, tak­ing out both the 2nd and 5th Ap­proach and Near­est the Pin re­spec­tively and last but cer­tainly not least was Sue Long, tak­ing out the B-grade Ap­proach on the 14th. Ap­par­ently the shot of the day goes to Ray Bur­rows, who hit the shed and man­aged to get a Hole-in-One but in the wa­ter tank and that de­served a ball for the ef­fort. Good to see both Mick and Ed back from their op­er­a­tions well and rar­ing to go al­though I do think Ed was ready to throw his clubs away at one stage or take to the trees with a chain­saw as they re­ally had a set against him. Next week March 29 will be a Sin­gle Stable­ford over the Back Nine and re­mem­ber that this is the last chance to win this quar­ters Near­est the Pin/Golden Cir­cle on the 4th/13th cur­rently held by Bob Cochrane with a dis­tance of 1.17m.
