Jamberoo members are warned about entering the pond at the seventh after reports a large white animal was seen in the water near the green.
Later, more reliable reports, suggested that in fact it was just Steve Rippon, sans shirt, extricating his ball from the hazard.
Apparently it was his birthday ball, and there was no way he was going to lose it that easily
Congratulations to Tim Young and Ron Hewson for representing our club with pride and determination in the Illawarra Champion of Champion event held on the 28th Of April at Shoalhaven Heads.
The course was in great condition with its setup in championship mode with the pins tucked in difficult to get at positions. Tim managed an equal second place, only to lose on a count back, with a 90 gross in the B grade section following closely behind the winning total of 86. Ron fired an even 100 in the C grade section to finish top half, where the winning score was interestingly 85 (lower than the B grade!). Our A grade champion, Adrian Gehrmann, was a late withdrawal due to a family commitment.
Both Ron and Tim (and most of the field) found the greens very ‘competitive’ but never gave up and tried their best for Jamberoo, not only in enthusiasm but also in the spirit in which they represented the club.
To quote Ron, “I know The Heads will not get the better of me, I will be back down there at some stage. But what a great course, and the hospitality was great and I couldn’t have asked for a better group to have played with.”
I am sure that both Ron and Tim are better for the experience and on behalf of the members I would like to thank them publicly for their time and commitment to the club.
Congratulations to Loretta and Phil Green on winning the Keno mixed fourball qualifying event held at Jamberoo on Sunday 21st of April with an impressive score of 45 points.
They will join runners up G. and A. Putral (42 points) and E. Armstrong and A Bosanquet (39 points) in the Illawarra District playoffs at Gerringong on the 23rd of June. The winner of this event progresses to the all-expenses paid final at the Bonville Golf Resort mid-September.
Good luck to our progressing pairs and thank you and well played to all the entrants in this year’s qualifying event.
