LAST Sun­day we played host to Craignest, for­merly Ea­gles Nest, for our an­nual tro­phy game with a hot break­fast to get them go­ing but the re­sults not so lucky. The weather was kind and warm but the re­cep­tion from the trees for the visi­tors was not. It seems our trees are the best weapon against any out­side club tak­ing a tro­phy as they come into play on each and ev­ery hole. Craignest man­aged a cred­i­ble 105.2 av­er­age gross score over the 18 but Childers man­aged a bet­ter 98.4 over the 18 giv­ing us the tro­phy for another year. Best Gross for the Craignest peo­ple was John and best net was Judy and well done. The win­ner over the18 holes and the Mug Day Cup was that poor lit­tle old lady Marie Chap­man, as if, with 57 net earn­ing her a whop­ping 5.0 off her hand­i­cap to much ap­plause and jibes from the mem­bers. Sec­ond was Chris Fitzsimons with 65 and los­ing 3.o off his hand­i­cap and with a loss of 1.7 was third place get­ter Diane Row­ley. Peter Withers had the least putts with 24, the B Grade Ap­proach on the 1st/10th was Bob Champ­ney, the A Grade Long­est drive to Col Den­net , the B Grade Long­est drive to Paul McCar­ragher, Scotty White once again on the 4th/13th for the Near­est the Pin but not close enough to the Golden Cir­cle of 1.52m. Hoss Eberl won the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th, Mick Ryan the Men’s Ap­proach on the 15th and Terry Small­man the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 7th/16th. Un­for­tu­nately our visi­tors missed out on the mi­nor prizes but we were all re­warded with a great lunch with dessert af­ter the game and thanks once again to Chris Fitzsimons for cook­ing the break­fast as well as the main meal and to that stal­wart of the So­cial Club, Roz who just makes things go so well when we have a bar­be­cue and to all those mem­bers who jump in and help with the prepa­ra­tion and the clean­ing af­ter the meals and Michael Stan­ton who mans the bar be­fore and af­ter the game. Next week we will play a Sin­gle Sta­ble­ford over the Back Nine tee­ing off at 7.30am. An away game is be­ing or­gan­ised for Novem­ber 8 at Her­vey Bay Golf Course with a meal. Those wish­ing to par­tic­i­pate please place your names on the list on the no­tice­board. Those not on the list will be pre­cluded from the game and meal as book­ings are es­sen­tial. Closes Septem­ber 25. The list for Christ­mas din­ner and game at Mary­bor­ough will be out next week. Those wish­ing to play please put your names down on the list as well as in­di­cat­ing whether you need a hire buggy or not. It will be 18 holes and a tra­di­tional Christ­mas meal af­ter the game. Those sup­ply­ing their own bug­gies will not have to pay but those who hire a buggy must pay the hire costs. Prizes for the day will be spon­sored by CLUB CAR and Bill Long. Re­mem­ber, if you haven’t played the re­quired 10 games for the year then you will have to pay a pro rata cost for the day of $5 for ev­ery game less than 10 games. Closes Novem­ber 22. Have a great week and see you on Sun­day.
