Club Captains Report
Hello to all. Hope we are enjoying our golf.
NOTE; Would the men please not tee off the 13th on club days after 9 am. These are the current rules set by the committee so please can we stick to them. Thank you.
Well, we have the NEW CHAMPS FOR TOP DOG and the winners were lapping up the victory!! The two water boys combined to flush away the Sausage and Skully 4/3 . Well done to Kerry and Ricey, well played and well deserved, a hard team to beat on the day. Rumor has it that Kerry took the Sausage off the stick and edged him by a shot.
Well done to all who took place in the haggle and YES, again, Kerry won the day, so Chop Chop better have a look and maybe we need to introduce some drug testing for this bloke ?????
PENNANTS, yes it’s 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 you 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 Shoot-out starts at 8.30. Tee off is at 9am, split field. So if your wanting a game please tee off before 9 am and maybe after 11 am ish. Be prepared to be held up as it’s a big day.
Please see below for draw and some more information. Thanks and remember, please let us know if you’re not available, thanks.
Then we have the 2-ball best ball mass start on the 26th long weekend. 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, and good golfing.
Your Club Captain Lofty.

A very windy day and a great turnout of lads playing the 3rd round of top dog. The game was Scottish foursomes. Both teed off from their starting hole and took the best ball, they then played alternate shots until the 18th hole, and this was played from the yellow tees. Some were happy that they only had to play every second shot. Colin Upson and Greg Fowler combined well with a net 59.5, Teddy Danych and Peter Loppy along with David Butler and Lee Mather had a 62 net. Carl Beale and Garry Fulton 64, Barry Newlove and Greg Watt 65.5, Geoff Peters and Barry Burns also had a 65.5. Only two of the day was Jim Newlove and his partner Richard Crowe at the 5th.
Raffle winners, Blue, Teddy, John Vanders, Wayne Kopu, Trevor Hughes, Colin, Bob Crow, Greg Fowler, David and Lee.
Next week is the last round of top dog, 2 ball best ball (best net of each hole).
Please print off the flyer and put up at your workplace.
It was very warm last Saturday, a reminder summer is coming. We played a fun game of Bing, Bong, Bango, a test of the short game.
Christine with 22 points and Trish with 18 points were the winners of the vouchers. Twos were drawn and went to Jocelyn & Nicole..
Putting points went to: Christine 3pts-29 putts, Nicole 2pts-32 putts and Kath 1pt for 34 putts.
The club shootout is on this Saturday and to fit in with the field the ladies need to tee off by 9.00. We will play stableford. Lesley will be the starter.
What an awful morning! 8 of us turned up that were playing in TopDog and debated whether to play. Decided to go ahead and apart from a howling gale wasn’t too bad. At least it didn’t rain.
TopDog results: Joy E & Helen J bt Pauline & Joc. Helen W & Jo bt Fay & Lesley.
The winners of TopDog were Helen W & Jo.
Fay was the lucky winner of the drawn 2.
Next week we are playing LGU which was missed last month due to weather and also last chance putting and eclectic.
The starter is Marie.
PRO – TIP
The Mind Game, (which would you prefer?)
Would you prefer to shoot a 69 & 3 putt the last or birdie the 18th for 70?
Would you prefer to go Eagle, Par or Birdie Birdie?
Ripping a great tee shot into an old divot or hitting a near perfect 2nd into 3 feet & then missing the putt?
In between clubs, would you go for the “blast” & take the lower club or play the half shot?
Would you prefer steady drizzle & no wind or no rain & a strong wind?
Do you prefer to play with the “toys out of the pram player” or the notoriously slow coach ?
Would you prefer a 5 footer downhill left to right or a 15 footer straight uphill ?
Good Luck & Good Golfing.
