ISIS MILL TRADERS’ DAY MEN & WOMEN AS ex­pected each year on Isis Mill Traders’ Day, a large turnout on Satur­day set off at 11.30am to play in a 3-Per­son Am­brose. Mem­bers and vis­i­tors en­joyed ideal golf­ing con­di­tions with a hint of rain at times. The field was placed into three group­ings, those with hand­i­caps of 0 to 8 in Group 1, 9 to 10 in Group 2 and 11 and over in Group 3. Gross win­ners in Group 1 were Graeme An­der­son, Ron Crouch and Damien Dowl­ing, with run­ners-up Mitch An­der­son, Jesse Fin­lay and Stacey An­der­son. Nett win­ners were the Mit­tel­heusers – Neale, Luke and Travis. Nett run­ners-up were John Hin­ton, Jeff Free­man and S. Crabbe. Gross win­ners in Group 2 were Blake Dowl­ing, T. Scot­ney and B. Roser. Run­ners–up were Chris Crouch, R. Lim­pus and A. Young. Nett win­ners were T. Smith, D. Jack­son and T. Charl­ton. Run­ners-up were Lionel Bust, B. Nash and Tony Lunn.

Run­ners-up were Hoss Eberl, T. Jamieson and S. Hey­ern. Win­ners of the NAGA award were Val Plath, Bob Werne and Bob Champ­ney. Pin­shot prizes were shared by 12 dif­fer­ent teams, too many names to men­tion. A great af­ter­noon con­cluded with trays of sand­wiches, a large in­take of bev­er­ages, short speeches of con­grat­u­la­tion by the Pres­i­dent who showed ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the turnout, while Peter Russo ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the won­der­ful work by mem­bers of the Mill staff in or­gan­is­ing the prizes and the day. Af­ter the pre­sen­ta­tion of the ar­ray of prizes do­nated by the Mill Traders, some stayed on to con­tinue so­cial­is­ing to con­clude a highly suc­cess­ful day. Next week­end is Easter and as usual, BBB com­pe­ti­tions will be held on both Satur­day and Mon­day, with hit-off time at 12.30pm. WOMEN JOAN Wright again (!) played well in the Thurs­day com­pe­ti­tion scor­ing a nett 73 in the sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion, win­ning on a count­back from Diane Rowley. Vicki McAu­lay won the ap­proach 1.4me­tres from the pin. This Thurs­day we play our Monthly Goblet, a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion. On Satur­day, the women played in the Am­brose teams for the Isis Mil Traders’ Day, so re­sults are above. Next week be­ing Easter, mem­bers as usual are in­vited to play the BBB com­pe­ti­tions on Satur­day and Mon­day, hit-off at 12.30pm. JU­NIORS THIS week, ju­nior golfers par­tic­i­pated in an Age Event. This event in­volved chil­dren tee­ing off from dif­fer­ing lo­ca­tions ac­cord­ing to their age. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all play­ers, most es­pe­cially Max Corsetti who showed sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ment. A spe­cial con­grat­u­la­tions to Will and So­phie Martell who were se­lected for the 2015 Wide Bay schools golf team. Their dad, Brett Martell, would have made the team too, a part from the fact that he is a lit­tle old and a lot ter­ri­ble. VETS VETS played a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­day in very pleas­ant over­cast con­di­tions with many scores bet­ter than par for the round. Bob Champ­ney had his best round for some time record­ing 42 points to be the over­all win­ner for the day. In A Di­vi­sion Peter Hut­ton with 38 won on a count­back from Nigel Radin, with Dave Robin­son 2nd run­ner-up on 37. Michael Stan­ton won best nine with 19 points. Kev Den­ham won B Di­vi­sion with 39 from Rusty Us­mar on 37 run­ner-up from Bob Cochrane on a count­back. Joy Cart­ner won best nine holes with 19 points. Nigel Radin placed his sec­ond shot in the hole to win the men’s ap­proach, while Robyn Robin­son was 0.5m from the hole to win the women’s ap­proach. Dave Robin­son also placed his sec­ond shot in the hole to win the com­bined ap­proach. Bob Champ­ney also led the Chook Run win­ners with 31 nett, Nigel Radin (31), Bob Werne (32) Bob Cochrane, Peter Hut­ton, Keith Rule and Chris Crouch (33). This Tues­day, April 7, is an­other sin­gle stable­ford - see you there for the noon hit-off. CHILDERS SO­CIAL TWENTY-ONE play­ers took to the course last Sun­day morn­ing for the last game of March. Diane Rowley hit a per­sonal mile­stone break­ing the 50 strokes for the first time and with her hand­i­cap, now 4.5 points lighter she took out the game with a 29. Bob Blows was sec­ond with 32 and los­ing 2.4 and Bill Kirch­hoff won on a count­back from Bill Long both on 33 to take out third place and lose 1.3 hand­i­cap points. 14 Putts seemed to be the or­der of the day with Diane, Scotty, Ted Buck­land and Michael Stan­ton all hit­ting the same. Scotty White also man­aged to take out the B grade ap­proach on the 10th with Terry Smallman tak­ing out the A Grade Long­est drive and Chris Fitzsi­mons the B Grade Long­est drive. Bill Kirch­hoff won the Near­est the Pin on the 13th but wasn’t close enough to knock off Bob Cochrane who man­aged a cred­i­ble 1.17m tak­ing out the first quar­ter Golden Cir­cle. Bob Champ­ney won the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th to round out the win­ners. We wel­comed a new mem­ber to the So­cial Club to­day Nigel Ison and hope he has many good days golf­ing with our club. Next week we will play an­other Stroke and Putt game for Mug Day, 7.30am Tee Off. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
