THE last of the off sea­son BBBs has been held and mem­bers look for­ward to the com­ing of­fi­cial golf sea­son. How­ever, on Satur­day last Clin­ton Dowling won the sin­gle stable­ford com­pe­ti­tion with 36 points from Cyn­thia Draper on 34 points, with run­downs to Robyn Robinson and Michael Stan­ton on 33 points. On Tues­day a large field ar­rived to com­pete in the last BBB for the mo­ment, re­mem­ber­ing that BBBS will con­tinue through­out the year on pub­lic hol­i­days. The win­ner was Bob Champ­ney with 40 points from Bill Her­ring on 37 points, with run­downs to Kev Den­ham and Dave Robinson both on 36 points. Dave put his sec­ond shot in the hole on 4&13 to win the com­bined ap­proach with run­downs to Bill Her­ring (0.17m), Ray Walker (0.18m) and Keith Rule (0.26m). Open­ing day for the of­fi­cial 2016 sea­son has ar­rived at last, the com­pe­ti­tion be­ing spon­sored again by Peter and Narelle Russo. This year we as usual open with a two-per­son Am­brose, an op­por­tu­nity to in­vite friends or ac­quain­tances to en­joy a game of golf and, if not a mem­ber, the op­por­tu­nity to win free mem­ber­ship for the 2016 golf­ing year. Our cur­rent Men’s open Cham­pion and Medal of Medal­lists for 2015, Clin­ton Dowling, will open the new sea­son by hit­ting the first drive from the favoured num­ber one tee. Wel­come to all mem­bers and in­tend­ing mem­bers.

SO­CIAL GOLF

We had 19 play­ers for our an­nual two-per­son Am­brose event played over 18 holes; this is played at the be­gin­ning of each sea­son. The win­ners (bur­glars) for the day were Nigel Ison and Do­minic Mete with an im­pres­sive score of 60 ¾. Sec­ond place went to Terry Smallman and Marg Den­nett with 65 and third place go­ing to Paul McGar­ragher and Michael Stan­ton who came in with 67. It was much to the hand­i­cap­per’s dis­ap­point­ment that he couldn’t cut any­one as nearly all play­ers came in well un­der par. A-grade near­est the pin on the 1/10 hole went to Col Den­nett, with the B-grade ap­proach on the 1/10 hole go­ing to Rohnda Zahn. The com­bined near­est the pin on the 4/13 hole went to Paul McGar­ragher who is now the holder of the golden cir­cle at 2.95m. The com­bined near­est the pin on the 6th and the men’s Ap­proach on the 15th both went to Nigel Ison who hap­pened to birdie both. The com­bined near­est the pin on the 7/16 hole went to bob Champ­ney. The com­bined long­est drive went to Hoss Eberl. The new chal­lenge, which we are go­ing to call the Cen­ter Fair­way shot, went to Col Den­nett. Af­ter the game the play­ers were treated to fin­ger food and a light bar­be­cue lunch. Thank you to all who helped out pre­par­ing the food and clean­ing up. On be­half of the so­cial club I would like to wish Bill Long a get well soon, af­ter un­der­go­ing an op­er­a­tion on his knees. Next week we will be tee­ing off at 7.30am for a Stable­ford on the back nine and as al­ways vis­i­tors and new mem­bers are wel­come.
