News from the Course, January 14

An Ace for Lance.

Club stalwart and Life member, Lance Fredericks, has fired the perfect shot in the Monday Vets comp. A nicely struck #5 hybrid covered the flag all the way and went into the hole like a firmly hit putt. This was Lance’s second ace having previously achieved the feat in 2006 on the 11th. Lance reports that he was very surprised to find it in the hole,

“Stroke of luck. Did not exactly see ball into hole, just saw it disappear off green and thought it would be just off green as hole was near right side of green”.

Lance receives 6 balls from the club in recognition as well as having his Titleist mounted into a permanent trophy to sit proudly on his mantelpiece at home right next to his other hole-in-one trophy and near Robyn’s two.

Lance will also receive a bottle of wine and a commemorative shirt from GolfNSW as well. What’s more Monday was the first day of the Just Bathroom’s Bonus hole-in-one prize and the 13th hole was the bonus hole! $40 extra for Lance.

Don’t forget to use the QR Code

If you play a social round or are enjoying the ambience of the veranda while enjoying a liquid refreshment then you are required by law to register your attendance using the QR code. If your phone isn’t ‘smart’ enough to use the QR code then please add your name to a friend’s registration or onto the paper register.

Latest Results

To record an individual stableford score in the high 40’s is a rare thing at Jamberoo. To see two in a week is remarkable. Congratulations to Ryan Dorahy for his 47 points on Saturday and to Martin Fogarty for his 48 on Wednesday. Both truly great rounds of golf. Golf Australia has recognised this fact by rewarding each player with an additional two shot deduction from their handicaps for excellence. Ryan is now off a career low 7.1 handicap as is Martin who has a new handicap of 22.8. Well done to both gentlemen.

These two rounds along with Lance’s ace has made a very interesting time on our beautiful course this week. Well played to all our weekly prize winners.

Requirements on the Veranda.

Members who plan to use the lounge or veranda are reminded that they should bring their mobile phones with them to make check-in easier.

Like at every club you will need to use the CoVid Safe check in function on the the Service NSW app. If you don’t possess a phone capable of accessing the app then please register on the paper form or get a mate to put you onto their check-in.

Jamberoo the Friendly Club

The friendly club – what does it mean?

We at Jamberoo like to consider ourselves as friendly and welcoming. We are mates playing with our mates. One big family, if you want, sharing our common love of playing golf at our beautiful course.

Sometimes we can get frustrated with each other, especially if we are not playing well. I have seen the odd club used in a fashion not designed by its maker! Not a good image by the way. I have even heard some language uttered that would make even a wharfie blush!!

What I don’t want to see is members having a go at other members. There is never any reason to confront another member about slow play, or spreading often untrue rumours about others to third parties. This is a form of bullying and is definitely not appropriate.

There is a proper way of doing things.

If you have a grievance then the proper thing to do is report it to a member of the match committee – Pat Paris, Larry Kent or myself. Probably best done after we have finished our round, and if you can’t find us let the office know in a written submission. For Ladies competitions then Judi O’Brien and Pam Middlebrook or myself should be informed.

There are many great things about Jamberoo GC that we should all be proud about. Enjoy your time on the course among your fellow devotees. Never approach a fellow member on the course.

Pennant Teams Gather

Sunday morning at the club and the 2021 Oaks Automotive Pennant teams have gathered for a special practice session.

Playing an ‘elimination stroke event’ all 17 players took off down the first together.

Pennant hordes invade

The format puts mounting pressure on the players as one player (or more) is eliminated after each hole. The player with the highest nett score is eliminated and if there is a tie for this then a ‘chip-off’ is played. Net par was the standard to avoid the ‘chip-off’.

The first chip-off was needed on the third hole where Chase Boreland eliminated Lee Hayward with a 40 metre chip to within inches. On the fourth John Anthony and Brad Douglas were pitted. John going first chipped in and Brad nearly followed leaving it 3 inches agonisingly short.

On the fifth hole multiple players were forced into the chip-off with Ryan Dorahy firing an exceptional chip to proceed. On the sixth a measure was needed with Daniel Hamilton moving through.

On the 7th tee only 4 were left with Peter Francis just pipping Peter Young to progress. A sad lip-out on 8 saw Daniel eliminated leaving Chase Boreland to play against Peter Francis for the prize.

Both hit excellent shots and when Peter’s putt just sneaked past the hole Chase was able to hole the putt for the birdie and the win.

Great play by many players on this fun day at the club.
