TWENTY two players were this morning greeted with a hot and steamy morning that had the perspiration dripping even before we teed off. Teams of three and four teed off in this Stroke and Putt game with a difference where all players in the group teed off but the best shot was where every player played their next ball until they their ball putted into the hole. Players were limited to four drives maximum counted which negated a lot of the big hitters taking advantage of the field and rules. The winner today and this time safe from the handicapper was Scotty White, who managed a 26 and also had the least Putts with 12. Diane Rowley came in second with a 27 and Chris Fitzsimons pipped his playing partner Bob Fraser for third with 30. Rhonda Zahn took out the B-grade approach on the 10th, Dave Durie the A-grade Longest Drive and Terry Smallman the B-grade Longest Drive. Nigel Ison won the Nearest the Pin on the 13th but because his group had already used 4 of his drives he had to come back to play someone else’s drive, a pity but thems de rules. Bob Champney won the Approach on the 15th to round off the winners All prizes and the complimentary balls and tees for each player were provided for by the Social Club captain, Paul McCarragher, as is the rule of thumb for this particular game and hopes everybody had a great time. Next week, on December 6, we play at Maryborough for the Social Club annual Christmas game and dinner with the Social Club picking up the tab for the game, the buggy and the Christmas meal and providing some of the prizes as most are provided once again by Bill Long and club car for the third year in a row and many thanks once again to Bill and Co. Tee off time will be at 7.30am and from tees one, 16, 17 and 18 so we all tend to finish together. Members are advised to be at the ground by no later than 7am so that cards, handicaps and groups can be filled in and allocated. On December 13, we will play the President’s Day and as usual it will be the Three Club Day where players are only allowed three clubs, including the putter, for the whole game and no drivers. After the game, the Annual General Meeting will be held for election of new office bearers and any general business that arises.
