Twenty play­ers took the field in our last of­fi­cial away game of the year at Hervey Bay Golf Club. The weather looked a bit threat­en­ing but the cooler temps made play­ing a lot eas­ier and it was a joy to fi­nally play on fair­ways that were not full of lumps and bumps, and hap­pily the rain stayed away. The greens un­for­tu­nately had just been cored and sanded but that didn’t stop some of our play­ers from record­ing de­cent scores. Leigh Hart led the field with a cred­i­ble 40 and the hand­i­cap­per was happy to dock him 2.5. Stu­art Aitch­e­son was sec­ond af­ter a count­back from Terry Small­man both on 38 with Stu­art los­ing 2.0 and Terry 1.1. The A Grade Longest Drive was won by Paul McCar­ragher who al­though not tak­ing out a place man­aged to also win the A Grade Near­est the Pin on the 2nd, the Com­bined Ap­proach on the 7th and the A grade Pin on the 17th. Adam Smith, sore el­bow and all, hit a mon­ster ball to win the B Grade Longest Drive on the 18th, and Bob Cochrane was very un­lucky not to get a hole-in-one on the 12th, about 150mm from the hole hit un­sighted from the tee, tak­ing out the Com­bined Near­est the Pin, a great shot Bob. R ay Bur­rows rounded out the win­ners with the B Grade Ap­proach on the 17th. Af­ter the game we all sat down to a great lunch sup­plied by the club­house, whose staff made the ex­pe­ri­ence worth­while and a great place to meet af­ter a game or even just for lunch. The choice was good and the meals served hot and well-pre­sented. Af­ter the meal we had the pre­sen­ta­tions and as usual the great­est cheer was not for the win­ner but for the hand­i­cap­per tak­ing the points off those who won – cut-throat game this but all in good fun. Next week it’s MUG Day so I will ex­pect to see all those mugs at the game, a stroke and putt game over the front nine. Don’t for­get to put your name down for the Xmas Party game and lun­cheon on the 6th of De­cem­ber 2015. Those not on the list will not be able to at­tend and those who put their names down but don’t at­tend could be asked to pay for their or­dered meals. There is also a list on the no­tice­board for those who wish to stand for elec­tion to the com­mit­tee as most of the cur­rent com­mit­tee are stand­ing down. It’s up to the mem­bers con­cerned to get a sec­on­der for their nom­i­na­tion. Those who nom­i­nate oth­ers please make sure that those nom­i­nated are happy to take the po­si­tion nom­i­nated for.
