Club Mysteriously Returns
You may recall that club captain Dave Ransom had lost his sand iron in a tree near the 7th green.
Dave insists that it was not propelled in anger except at the Corellas that had done a job on the 7th green.
Last Wednesday the birds released their hostage on the promise that Dave would not throw anything else at them. The club was found beside the palm tree and Dave would like to thank the member who found it and brought it back to the club-house.
He is still receiving counselling about anger management directed towards Corellas!
It was good to see members using the preferred lie rule on fairways after first marking their ball. Vince Brynes in fact was so taken in by following the procedure that he marked his ball, cleaned it, and then played his next shot. Unfortunately Vince had forgotten to replace his ball and only hit his ball marker!
Playing partners were suggesting that Vince use his glasses in future.
End of Levy
The 30th of September marks the conclusion of the $1 per round levy. Your contributions have paid for the new paths on the 5th, 6th and 18th holes and the purchase of “geohex’ to be used to create other pathways.
The club has applied for government funding to complete the works and we hope for a positive response to our application in December.
This week’s Competition Winners
Beautiful golfing weather has brought out the members this week with all competitions well supported.
Some of the better results were recorded by: Tony Rodriguez who picked up his Wednesday ‘pension check’ with another win in A grade, Margaret Cook continued her good form winning on Tuesday, Lisa Bell scored a great 41 points on Saturday and Gary Harvey played his best round of the year winning B grade on Wednesday with nett 60,Ian Foy cleaned up on Wednesday winning both his grade and the mystery nine and finally, what a round by Ian Martens on Saturday with a magnificent 48 points, when most others found conditions hard.
Many players have also been seen out practising, honing their game for the upcoming championships. Drummond Golf has again nominated to sponsor our championships and our club is very grateful for their support.
