ISIS MEN MEM­BERS are en­joy­ing the cooler con­di­tions for play­ing with a large num­ber com­pet­ing for the April Monthly Medals and many record­ing un­der par scores. In A Di­vi­sion Clin­ton Dowl­ing up­staged his sons to record 69 gross and net 65 to win from Chris Crouch on 69, run­ner-up on count­back from Keith Rule. Other run­down win­ners were Damien Dowl­ing and Bill Cowan (70), Blake Dowl­ing and Will Martell (71). Blake had some con­so­la­tion record­ing an­other ea­gle in his round. In B Di­vi­sion Chris Fitzsi­mons fol­low­ing a great round on Tues­day recorded an im­pres­sive 62 net to win com­fort­ably from Roger Draper on 70 net, run­ner-up on a count­back from four oth­ers on 70, each re­ceiv­ing a run­down: Mark McAu­lay, Bill Kingston, Larry Per­shouse and Ross Ni­col. Clin­ton also won the pin­shot on 1&10 (1.95m) with Bill Kingston win­ning the B ap­proach on the same hole (0.56m). Kev Sav­age claimed the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot on 4&13 (5.78m) and Ross Ni­col the B Di­vi­sion one (4.88m). Next Satur­day will be a club spon­sored sin­gle stable­ford in­stead of the post­poned Childers Phar­macy com­pe­ti­tion, with hit-off at the usual time of 12.30pm. WOMEN THURS­DAY play­ers grap­pled with the de­mand­ing bisque bo­gey com­pe­ti­tion with some out­stand­ing scores. Lisa Cooney won with plus 9, with Co­ralie Vol­gyesi only one shot be­hind as run­ner-up. Diane Rowley with plus 4 col­lected a run­down. Mar­garet Dennett won the ap­proach, 0.64m from the pin. This Thurs­day, num­bers per­mit­ting, we will play a 4 BBB, with a ran­dom draw for part­ners – hit-off at 8.30am. Robyn Robin­son con­tin­ued on her win­ning way, record­ing net 70 to win the Satur­day April Monthly Goblet on a count­back from an un­lucky So­phie Martell. Vick McAu­lay won a run­down with net 73, while Fiona Dowl­ing won the ap­proach on 6&15, 1.06m from the hole. Robyn also scored a birdie on num­ber three, a very dif­fi­cult feat on the hole rated most dif­fi­cult for women. Next Satur­day we play a sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with hit-off at 12.30pm. See you there. VETS ON TUES­DAY, a large con­tin­gent from across the Wide Bay played in our an­nual Isis Vets’ Open Car­ni­val, with shot­gun starts at 7.30am and 12.15pm. Isis play­ers fig­ured promi­nently in the win­ners’ lists in the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by Ross Grey Holden and our friends at House of Golf. In A Di­vi­sion An­drew Ed­monds (Her­vey Bay) on 41 points edged out Michael Stan­ton (Isis), with A. Vollmer­house (Mary­bor­ough) third on 39 points. In B Di­vi­sion Bob Cochrane (Isis) won with 40 points from B. Lohmann (Bur­rum) on 38, run­ner-up in a count­back from third placed E. Lidgard (Her­vey Bay). M. Tubbe­mham (Gin Gin) recorded the best score of the day with 42 points to win from Sue Long (Isis) also on 42 points, with Diane Rowley (Isis) third on 39 points. The long drives went to Neil Rieck (Isis) in A Di­vi­sion, K. Hes­sel­wood (Mary­bor­ough) in B Di­vi­sion and B. Cox (Bur­rum) in the women’s com­pe­ti­tion. On 1&10, Col Dennett (Isis) won the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot, Bob Cochrane the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach and B Cox the women’s ap­proach. On 4&13, A. Ed­monds won the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot, D. Higham (Mary­bor­ough) the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach and Cyn­thia Draper (Isis) the women’s ap­proach. On 6&15, K. Ri­ley (Mary­bor­ough) A Di­vi­sion pin­shot, Paul McCar­ragher (Isis) the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach and Vicki McAu­lay (Isis) the women’s ap­proach. Many af­ter­noon play­ers stayed to so­cialise af­ter the game and en­joy the pre­sen­ta­tion. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the win­ners and spe­cial thanks to the ladies in the kitchen who pre­pared a de­li­cious lunch and a tasty af­ter game snack. The Cap­tain ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the ef­forts by so many mem­bers to make the day a great suc­cess. SO­CIAL A LOVELY morn­ing greeted the play­ers as 25 play­ers took to the course to play the sec­ond half of the Odds and Evens game play­ing only the even num­bered holes. A bit of a hic­cup be­fore the game with some­one who should re­main name­less putting their card in their pocket and stand­ing out as the other play­ers took to the field. We sorted that out and the game went on. Please guys fill your cards in and leave them on the ta­ble so I can al­lo­cate the play­ers in the groups, not in your pock­ets. The win­ner to­day by a good mar­gin was Rose Cochrane with a 30, which was ap­plauded by the play­ers but not as much as the cheer when it was an­nounced she would lose 4.0 off her hand­i­cap. Keep­ing it in the fam­ily was Bob Cochrane, who man­aged to come in sec­ond with 32 and he lost 2.5 off this hand­i­cap fol­lowed on the same score by Sue Long, who lost 2.0 off her hand­i­cap. Scotty White also had 32 but was beaten to a place on count­back. 13 Putts were the or­der of the day, with both Marg Dennett and Hoss Eberl both reg­is­ter­ing those putts. Much as it pains me to say Len (I never win any­thing) Stal­lard won the B Grade Ap­proach on the 10th. Do­minic Mete took out the B Grade Long­est Drive with Scotty White set­ting a new dis­tance for the Golden Cir­cle of 4.0m and tak­ing out the Near­est the Pin on the 4th. Last but not least and I won’t men­tion the 4 putt, was Col Dennett tak­ing out the Near­est the Pin on the 6th. Next week we will be play­ing a Stroke and Putt game on the Front Nine and don’t for­get that Putts this year could earn you the in­au­gu­ral Worst Put­ter of the Year prize for that player with the most Putts on av­er­age over the year, surely some­thing not to strive for.
