THE cap­tains de­cided to end the of­fi­cial sea­son with a sin­gle sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion, with which most golfers agreed, as the scores in­di­cate. Un­for­tu­nately the round had to be lim­ited to nine holes as the steady driz­zle per­sisted dur­ing the af­ter­noon. Mark McAu­lay led the way with 22 points from John Cole on 21 points, sec­ond on a count­back from Larry Pershouse. Run­downs went to a num­ber of play­ers, the best of which were Bill Her­ring, Roger Draper, Michael Stan­ton and Robyn Robin­son (19 points each). Vicki McAu­lay, Fiona Dowl­ing, Joan Kelly and Joy Cart­ner also shared in the run­downs. Fiona (1.05m) won the ladies’ ap­proach on 6&15; Bill Her­ring (5.4m)) the A Di­vi­sion pin­shot on 1&10; Mark McAu­lay (1.09m) the B Di­vi­sion ap­proach on the same hole; Bob Champ­ney (1.49m) the B Di­vi­sion pin­shot on 4&13. The ladies cel­e­brated the end of their sea­son with a spe­cial Christ­mas luncheon in­stead of their usual Thurs­day round. Re­mem­ber that dur­ing the un­of­fi­cial sea­son, mem­bers are in­vited to play in the BBB com­pe­ti­tions ev­ery Satur­day (12.30pm hit-off), ev­ery Tues­day (noon hit-off); and on pub­lic hol­i­days (12.30pm).


EL­I­GI­BLE mem­bers played the fi­nal of the VIP stroke com­pe­ti­tion, while oth­ers present for the fi­nal day of of­fi­cial Vets’ com­pe­ti­tions for 2015 en­joyed an over­flow stroke com­pe­ti­tion. The VIP win­ner for 2015 is Rusty Us­mar whose 68 net earned him the spe­cial Vets’ VIP shirt and his name on the shield. How­ever, his achieve­ment was over­shad­owed by Dave Robin­son’s 64 net to be the over­all win­ner of the day’s com­pe­ti­tion. Ray Walker was run­ner-up on 68, on a count­back from Rusty, with fur­ther run­downs to Val Plath, Terry Smallman, Ted Buck­land, Ken Al­bion (69 each), Peter Hrelja and Vicki Wyeth (70). Roger Draper won the lucky draw prize. Kev Sav­age (0.21m) won the Men’s ap­proach on 1&10; Dave Robin­son (in the hole) the Com­bined ap­proach on 4&13; and Val Plath (0.10m) the Women’s ap­proach on 6&15. Chook Run win­ners were: Ray Groves (26), Dave Robin­son (28), John Hen­der­son, Mark McAu­lay (29), Bob Werne, Ted Buck­land and Ed Connell (31) on spins. Mem­bers en­joyed the af­ter-game treats pre­pared by our spe­cial and ap­pre­ci­ated ladies and the ex­ten­sive range of prizes both for the raf­fle and the com­pe­ti­tion. To all Vets, enjoy a happy and peace­ful Christ­mas and a Vets’ Christ­mas lunch, and we look for­ward to wel­com­ing you all back for 2016, fit and well. Re­mem­ber the club runs a BBB com­pe­ti­tion on Tues­days dur­ing the un­of­fi­cial sea­son.


BE­FORE I write the re­sults of to­day’s game I would per­son­ally like to thank those peo­ple who have made my ten­ure as cap­tain a bit eas­ier. Bill Long and CLUB Car for spon­sor­ing sev­eral away games dur­ing the year, Bill Kirch­hof of Isis In­te­rior Lin­ings, who sup­plies the Prize for the Golden Cir­cle com­pe­ti­tion dur­ing the year, John Whit­ford from Drum­mond Golf and THATMOSIS Web De­sign, all of who spon­sor the club’s web page. Thanks also to Chris Fitzsimons, who dili­gently runs the early morn­ing Sun­day Brekkie Club where our hun­gry mem­bers can get a $2 egg and ba­con sanger be­fore the game and who puts all the pro­ceeds back into the club. A spe­cial thank you to those same peo­ple who week in and week out do the bins and make sure we leave the club­house tidy and to those who help in the kitchen each and ev­ery bar­be­cue day preparing and serv­ing the meals and clean­ing up af­ter­wards. A spe­cial thanks to Ed Connell, who tire­lessly puts the prize mark­ers and boxes out on the holes each and ev­ery Sun­day and who also runs around col­lect­ing them af­ter the game when peo­ple forget to bring them in, they all con­trib­ute to making my life eas­ier and en­sure the day and the club runs smoothly. A spe­cial thanks to Jodie Dixon and the staff, past and present, at Isis Town and Coun­try for run­ning our re­sults each week and for al­low­ing me to con­trib­ute a golf page to the pa­per and some sto­ries about the club as a whole. Merry Christ­mas and a happy new year to one and all. My last of­fi­cial act as cap­tain of the So­cial Golf Club was of­fi­ci­at­ing at the Pres­i­dent’s Day 3 Club Event where the play­ers are re­stricted to only three clubs in the bag in­clud­ing the put­ter, a chal­lenge for some but it seems a dod­dle for oth­ers. Len (I never win any­thing) Stal­lard with 30 won the day from Bob Champ­ney on 33 and Dave Durie on 34 along with 3 other play­ers. Len also took out the least putts with 12. The B Grade Ap­proach on the 1st was won by Mar­garet Den­nett and the A grade Near­est the Pin on the 1st by Dave Durie. Bob Walker won the B grade Long­est Drive with Domonic Mete tak­ing out the Com­bined Near­est the Pin on the 6th. The new com­mit­tee was sworn in with Chris Fitzsimons be­ing elected pres­i­dent, Len Stal­lard vice-pres­i­dent, Marg Den­nett sec­re­tary, Diane Row­ley trea­surer, Leigh Hart cap­tain, Col Den­nett vice-cap­tain and hand­i­cap­per all un­op­posed. Good luck for next year and con­grat­u­la­tions. There will now be a break from com­pe­ti­tion, which will re­sume on Jan­uary 10 at 7.30am.
