DESPITE the awful weather, with rain, gusty wind and frigid conditions, 24 brave people risked a bad case of pneumonia to compete in the 2014 Jamberoo Mixed Open played on Sunday 15th of June.
Winners on the day with an excellent score of 84 were our visitors from Port Kembla, Nerada and Les Edmonds. They defeated the new pairing of Loretta Green and Stephen Rippon by a shot. Nett winners were Liz Armstrong and Arthur Bosanquet with 73.875 defending the trophy that they won last year.
Bruce Byers deserves special mention as he travelled back from interstate to defend the title with his partner Kay Brennan. Congratulations to our winners and well played to all others who braved the storm to support their club and enjoy the company of their fellow members.
Mixed Foursome spots still open
A reminder that next Sunday (22/6/14), the Mixed Foursomes Championships, will be played over 27 holes. There are still a few tee spots available so please feel free to enter a team.
Matchplay Championships underway
The draws for the Single and Fourball Matchplay Championships have been completed and have been placed on the notice board. Please write down your current Golf Link handicap near your name as this will be your handicap throughout the tournament (unless it goes down). Some competitors have failed to give their contact details so it would be appreciated if you could clearly write down your phone number near your name.
June Monthly Medal
Steve Rippon recovered from a disastrous 2nd hole to record the day’s lowest score in the June monthly medal with a 69. Steve’s round included a hole in one on the 7th where his perfectly struck wedge went straight in without the benefit of a bounce. Steve bookended his ace with birdies at the 6th and 8th holes, an incredible stretch of 4-under par. This was Steve’s 8th career hole in one and his first since 1989.
