Results from 2015 Mug Day Stroke and Putt Front Nine played October 4: A fine sunny morning and we had a record number of members turn out for the game with one visitor Matt who was welcomed by one and all. The Mug of the day, sorry that should have read the winner of the Mug Day was Mick Ryan with 31 which allowed the handicapper to pilfer 2.9 points off his handicap. Second was a bit of a trial as we had six players on 33 and after a countback it was decided that Dave Durie claimed second and will lose 1.6 with Peter Macauley in third losing 1.3. The others who managed to score well by not take a prize or lose points were Sue Long, Scotty White, Bob Cochrane and Hoss Eberl. Well done to all and better luck next time and the handicapper will get you in the end.The B Grade Approach on the first was won by Terry Smallman, the A Grade Longest Drive by Dave Durie, the B Grade Longest Drive by Nigel Ison, the Combined Nearest the Pin by Dianne Charles and because of a mix-up with the markers both Dave Durie and Paul McCarragher won the Nearest the Pin on the 6th. Least Putts went to Scotty White and Bill Kirchhof with 11 though how is hard to imagine as the greens are terrible. The members enjoyed a hearty meal after the game thanks to Roz again and those ladies seen cleaning up after the meal and thanks to those who seem to be the ones who always empty the bins and take them across the road for Monday morning collection. It hasn’t gone unnoticed, let me assure you, thanks to all. Next week we will be playing a Single Stableford over the back nine and I ask once again to please fill a card in when you arrive as it’s quite embarrassing to find players still standing after the teams have been read out. An away game is to be held on October 25 at Hervey Bay. Game, buggy and meal for $25 a head. The tee off time will be 8.30am as their Social Club Tees off from 7.30-8.30am. A lunch menu with several choices will be circulated to members on the morning of the game so that meals will be ready when you finish your game. There will be a list posted on the notice board for member to put their names down if they wish to attend. Buggies are limited at the moment so first in best served and it may be necessary for some member to bring their own buggies with a cost reduction included.
