MEN’S AND WOMEN’S

DUR­ING the un­of­fi­cial sea­son, mem­bers were in­vited to play in the bbb com­pe­ti­tions ev­ery Satur­day (12.30pm hit off), ev­ery Tues­day (noon hit off); and on pub­lic hol­i­days (12.30pm). A few ded­i­cated play­ers man­aged to at­tend all com­pe­ti­tions with many ex­cel­lent scores recorded. In the past two games a num­ber of play­ers bet­tered par in the sin­gle bbb sta­ble­ford com­pe­ti­tion. On Satur­day, Jack Cole sur­prised with 41 points, fol­lowed by Michael Stan­ton, Dave Robin­son (39), Vicki McAu­lay (37) and Craig Reynolds (36). On Tues­day, Dave Robin­son went one bet­ter with 40 points from Terry Small­man, Mark McAu­lay (39) and Michael Stan­ton (38). Open­ing day for the of­fi­cial 2016 sea­son is fast ap­proach­ing, the com­pe­ti­tion be­ing spon­sored again by Peter and Narelle Russo – last year we opened with a two-per­son Am­brose, and will con­firm the com­pe­ti­tion in the next is­sue. Thanks again to Town & Coun­try for their con­tin­u­ing sup­port over so many years. It is our hope that the mem­bers can look for­ward to an­other pro­duc­tive and suc­cess­ful sea­son of com­pet­i­tive golf.

SO­CIAL

HAPPY new year to ev­ery­one as the first com­pe­ti­tion for the year got un­der way. We had 16 play­ers turn up to a beau­ti­ful morn­ing of front nine stroke and putt golf. To­day was also the first day for the new com­mit­tee to cut their teeth and thank­fully ev­ery­thing ran smoothly. The win­ner for the day was Michael Stan­ton mak­ing, an A-grade come­back with a net score of 31 los­ing 3.1 from his hand­i­cap. Se­cond on a count­back with a net score of 32 was “I never win noth­ing” Lenny Stal­lard, los­ing 2.1 from his hand­i­cap, with third place go­ing to Bill Kirkhhof, los­ing 1.7 from his hand­i­cap. The least puts on the day went to Paul McCar­ragher with 12 putts. B-grade ap­proach on the first went to Marg Den­nett, Com­bined near­est the pin on the 6th went to Sue Long, B grade long­est drive went to Domonic Mete and fi­nally the near­est the pin on the 4th was won by Rob Blows, who cur­rently holds the golden cir­cle dis­tance be­ing 3.940m. Next week we will be play­ing our yearly two-per­son am­brose game, where the win­ners’ names will go onto a tro­phy, the so­cial mem­bers voted that we play this game over 18 holes be­ing one of our yearly pres­ti­gious events, tee off will be at 7.30am. This year we have de­cide to mix the weekly prizes up a lit­tle bit plus we added a new chal­lenge. I can’t tell you what that chal­lenge is be­cause no-one has come up with a name for it yet but if you turn up next week you’ll be sure to find out. Vis­i­tors and new mem­bers are al­ways wel­come, come along test the wa­ter and have an en­joy­able morn­ing out.
