Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

IT MUST have been a quiet Easter for most as we had 31 play­ers take the field to­day in our Monthly Mug Day com­pe­ti­tion with vis­i­tors and old mem­bers of years past re-join­ing to play again.

With such a large field we were wor­ried that the lunch would be a bit short but thanks to Chris and Roz ev­ery­thing went smoothly.

The win­ner af­ter an ab­sence of weeks if not months was Tony Parker on 32, edg­ing out Mick Ryan also on 32. Tony lost 3.0 off his hand­i­cap and Mick 2.2. Third was Ray Bur­rows on 33 and los­ing 1.3.

The B Grade Ap­proach on the 1st was won by Bob Champ­ney, the B Grade Long­est drive by Adam Smith and the A Grade Long­est Drive by Paul McCar­ragher. Nigel Ison ac­tu­ally hit his ball a fur­ther 30m but be­cause he as yet doesn’t have a hand­i­cap he can’t be placed in A or B grade, but well done. Col Dennett has started the ball rolling with the Golden Cir­cle with 12m from the hole and also tak­ing out the Near­est the Pin on the 4th. Lau­rie Daiken won the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 6th and fi­nally the least Putts went to Ray Bur­rows and Bill Kirch­hof with 13 beaten by the vis­i­tor Al Ball with 12.

Thanks to Terry for sup­ply­ing the Easter eggs on the course – a nice touch, and to Roz, Marg, Sue, Bob Champ­ney, Diane Rowley and Rhonda for help­ing out in the kitchen to pre­pare the meal and clean­ing up af­ter­wards and to those who emp­tied the bins, well done guys.

Two rules that will be re­in­forced from now on in all games at the Isis Golf Club, no bug­gies, hand or mo­torised, to be left in front of the greens and no bug­gies, hand or mo­torised, to move across the tees.

Also, please re­mem­ber that the Rules of Golf will be ob­served by all mem­bers of the So­cial Golf Club with the ex­cep­tion of the pre­ferred lie which is one hand span only on the fair­way on which you are play­ing.

The rea­son­ing be­hind this has come about be­cause some mem­bers of the So­cial Golf Club have been us­ing the So­cial Club Spe­cial rules in games with the Isis and Vets Golf Clubs.

If you see a player do­ing the wrong thing please let them know, nicely, and if you are un­cer­tain of the rules ask a com­mit­tee mem­ber or an­other player and clar­ify it at the end of the game.

Next week we will play the sec­ond game of the Odds and Evens games, tee off as usual at 7.30am.

Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
