Club Captains Report

Hello to all. Hope we are enjoying our golf ….JR is!!

Well, Top Dog is nearing the end and we are up to the FINALS this weekend. We had the last semi last week with Skully holding it together and keeping Sausage on a roll. They overcame the challenge from Father Ted and the Clown. Well done lads. Now it’s onto the water boys, Ricey and Edge, in the final this weekend, so place your bets folks this could be close. Not all was lost as Gray won the Crawford Cup AGAIN (DRINKS RAFFLE) I think this is the 6th time, so can we all fill it up so he can’t get another ticket please, thanks. Well done to all the rest of you who scored well in the Haggle with Division 1 being topped by the in form JR with +11. YES JR …AND YES +11 …….BUT he did have 22 clubs or was it 19 or 14, no-one knows. Also, he didn’t even have his own clubs …or did he. …I am not sure JC knows whether he now owns JRs old clubs or if they are on trial. ..It just gets way too confusing when you have a JR and a JC. Well done JR, great round. Watch out Marie, rumor has it JR thinks he is hot stuff at the moment…..and was walking around the club house like a rooster in full bloom…(I really can’t even picture that) anyway??? Good Luck Marie….Good rounds were had by KTV -Kingston +5 and the Sausage rolled up next with +2

Ryder Cup was on this weekend and, to be blunt, it was a good day for having a beer or two but that was pretty much it as we got cleaned out against the team from up north. …Urenui played very well with a couple of 64 nets doing the damage. Well done to those who took place. We would like to see a bigger field next year so we can head up north and get the cup back. The day was played in good spirit and enjoyed by all and that’s what interclub is about. So, thanks to all and thanks to Jan for catering the event at late notice.

PENNANTS, yes its that time again and we want to get a jump on it this year. I will be putting up a registration of interest form on Saturday so please read it and pop your name down if are keen. Pennants will be around Feb /March 2020 and we are moving the club program around a bit, so pennant players don’t have the big club competitions on Saturday and pennants on Sunday. This should work out so we will get more pennant members playing Sundays and give more golfers a chance to enter stroke and match play champs without having to commit to Saturday / Sundays for 8 weeks or so. I feel this is win/win for the club overall …watch this space….

Weekend of the 19th we have the 2ball best ball mass start 9am tee off so if we can all be there 8.30 am so we can sort out what tees we will be on that would be great thanks. So, grab your buddy /partner or whoever and make up a team and get ready to go. PLEASE remember it’s a mass start so don’t take off early or you won’t be in the competition. Thanks guys and girls.

Thanks, and good golfing.

Your Club Captain Lofty.
