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.
