Isis Town and Country - - Sport - – Paul McCar­ragher

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.
