Magical Mushrooms or Strange Fungii ?also New Solutions.

We have all seen them on the mound of the 15th. Does anyone know the scientific name?? Are they edible?

INVENTORS and PROBLEM SOLVERS.

A bit of lateral thinking involved to solve the Footgolf Pool Scoops. Obviously not strong enough when thrown (which they often are) from one side of the bank to the other on the 4th golf hole. Maybe reinforce them or attach something like the scoop below. Contact Sue Paul, the office or starters, if you have a possible solution.

Lance Fredericks 500
President Lance Fredericks

President Lance Announces Retirement

Lance Fredericks has been a tireless worker for Jamberoo Golf Club, firstly serving as Club Captain for a period of 7 years from 2003-04, and then as President from 2011-12.

He has been an outstanding leader and great club man always involved in all aspects of the club, whether it is helping in the golf shop, working on the course or building bridges.

At a recent Board meeting Lance announced that this will be his last term in office.

On behalf of all the members of Jamberoo Golf Club I would like to congratulate Lance on his dedication to the club and wish him a long and fruitful retirement away from Board business and trust that his involvement will still be of significance to the club.

Thanks Lance.

Missing Eight Iron

Mark C is still looking for his 8 iron after it slipped from his hand last week on the 6th hole and went into Hyam’s Creek. In fact Kris, from Drummond Golf, has informed me that Mark has even made enquiries at their shop just in case it turned up there!

Practice on the Course

Members are reminded that multiple practice from the same spot should only be made on the club’s practice range and not on the course. For practice rounds two balls maximum are permitted.

Driving Licence Check

Photographic evidence has been presented to me showing a cart bogged up to its axles on the 17th hole today in the hazard between the 17th and 2nd holes. Annoyingly the fore-mentioned cart was right near a bridge.

John Hols out. Asks for a 2 cart relief
John “Hol”s out. Asks for a 2 cart relief!

The driver, a well known pie-maker,  was breathalyzed and given a suspended sentence and is now on probation.

Please don’t drive carts through or even near the hazards.

Upcoming Events

The Ladies 54 hole Club Championship commences this Tuesday. Good luck to all. Play well and enjoy our great course and the challenge of this major event.

White Duck Charity Golf Day for Juvenile Diabetes Research will be held on Thursday June 22 at the club. The booking sheet is in the golf shop.

The Men’s Foursomes Championships will be held on Sunday 25th of June to be played over 27 holes. The booking sheet is in the golf shop so it is time to organise your team and book a time.

The entry forms for the Men’s Individual and Fourball Matchplay championships are also in the golf shop so please put your name down if you are interested in playing in these important club events.

The District final of the KENO Mens fourball will be held at Jamberoo this year. In a change of format this year there will be no club qualifying rounds and any interested teams may nominate to play in the District event. The winners will get to play the state final at the beautiful Bonville International Golf Club near Coffs Harbour with all expenses paid.

Put Sunday August 13 in your diary, and let’s get a Jamberoo team through to Bonville!

Oh What a Beautiful Day!

What a pity so many listened to the forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology (or is it Bureau of Mediocrity) and cancelled today. The ‘best day of the year’ was the often used expression by most that played. The 71 members who played had a great day and enjoyed the dry, warm conditions.

The Platinum Cowpat lets Loose

Did anybody find a Titleist 8 iron in the creek near the sixth today? If so could you please return such to Mark? Apparently ‘that’ tree caught Mark’s ball mid-flight and tossed it in the creek. The ball was quickly followed by Mark’s 8 iron!

Hey, is that your ball?

If you are playing in a comp its not a bad idea to leave stray balls where they lay. Don’t pick them up and put them in your bag, you never know where they have come from and when the owner will turn up ready to play their next shot!

Now if the stray is left behind in a hazard then that is another matter.

An Eagle on the 5th

Congratulations to President Lance for his eagle 2 on the 5th hole in Wednesday’s comp. After a perfectly played tee shot Lance lofted his short iron onto the green and watched with delight as it spun into the hole.

Great shot Lance. Enjoy the 3 balls you get as a special prize from the club in recognition.
