Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

MEN & WOMEN A COOL start to the jointly spon­sored Childers So­cial and Isis Golf Clubs’ two-per­son Am­brose, with the breeze drop­ping later and a warm af­ter­noon mak­ing the round very pleas­ant in­deed, par­tic­u­larly for some. Nigel Radin and Neil Rieck recorded nett 64¾ to win from John Hin­ton and Brett Martell on 67½, with Bill Her­ring and Craig Reynolds third on 68¼. Bill and Craig won the ap­proach on 1&10 and Nigel and Neil on 4&13 – the rest of us lament­ing lost chances. Next Satur­day the Four­somes Cham­pi­onships for both men and women will be played, with a spe­cial hit-off time of 11.00am. Please bring a plate for an af­ter-game snack.

On Satur­day mem­bers played with the men in the 2-per­son Am­brose spon­sored by both the So­cial and Isis Golf Clubs – with­out suc­cess. This Satur­day we play for the Four­somes Cham­pi­onship – hope all el­i­gi­ble teams are en­tered. Re­mem­ber the spe­cial hit-off time of 11.00am. Please bring a plate for an af­ter-game snack. VETS ON A very un­set­tled Tues­day af­ter­noon, the Vets hit off in a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion, with a num­ber pulling out af­ter a brief but heavy shower. The re­main­der bat­tled on, with Nigel Radin on 35 points win­ning A Di­vi­sion in a count­back from two oth­ers, Larry Per­shouse sec­ond from Kev Sav­age placed third. In B Di­vi­sion Ken Al­bion recorded his best score for many months, win­ning with 41 points from Ce­cily Fay, sec­ond on 34 and Bob Werne third on 33 points. The ap­proach win­ners were: Keith Rule (0.58m) for the men on 1&10; Marg Den­nett (0.31) for the ladies on 6&15; and Mark Tedge (0.09m) to win the com­bined ap­proach on 4&13. Marg Den­nett led the Chook Run win­ners with 31 nett from Ken Al­bion also on 31, from Phil Luck­ett (33), Keith Rune, Jen­nifer McKay and Bob Werne (34). This Satur­day the Cap­tain has cho­sen a sin­gle stroke com­pe­ti­tion for mem­bers. See you there for the noon hit-off.

SO­CIAL

FI­NALLY found the cul­prit who for­got to fill in their card caus­ing me to think I was los­ing it, 20 peo­ple and 19 cards. When you ar­rive please pay for the day and then fill your card in and if trav­el­ling in a buggy sta­ple the two cards to­gether. Any­way enough gripes as to­day we played a Mul­li­gan where the play­ers got a free shot on ev­ery hole to fix shots they has messed up. With that in mind I ex­pected scores in the mid to low 20s, but the play­ers, or the ma­jor­ity of them must have been play­ing a dif­fer­ent game. The only per­son to break 30 was Hoss Eberl who man­aged a 26 and lost 1.5 off his hand­i­cap. Col Den­nett and Stu­art Aitchi­son man­aged 31 with Col com­ing sec­ond on a count­back and los­ing 1.0 and Stu­art los­ing 0.5. Hoss made a day of it tak­ing out the B-grade Ap­proach on the 10th and the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th and Col also man­aged two ex­tra prizes tak­ing out the A-grade Long­est Drive and the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 13th with the only out­sider be­ing Paul McCar­ragher who took out the B-grade Long­est Drive. The Golden Cir­cle is still only 4m and next week is the last chance to take it out so let’s put a ball on the 4th close to the pin and take out a great prize. Next week we will play a Sin­gle Sta­ble­ford over the Front Nine with the usual Brekkie in the morn­ing. I will also be look­ing at other golf cour­ses for our next away game with sev­eral be­ing men­tioned by the mem­bers. I should have a def­i­nite an­swer within two weeks. Have a great week and see you next Sun­day and happy birth­day for last week to Adam who turned the big 50, con­grats from, all the mem­bers.
