July Competition
As a result of the wintery weather, numbers were limited to 71 players this month, which means there were only 2 grades. The winners were:

Division 1
Albert Davies 37 points
Peter Robinson 36 points
Glyn Godfrey 34 points

Division 2
David Wardle 40 points (c/b)
Stuart Potter 40 points
Ray Pearson 37 points

The NTP on the 9th was won by Patrick Foy (337cms) and Ralph Young won the drive and pitch on the 8th (69cms). I was nearby when Ralph played his shot to the green and I saw it hit the pin, so he might have been unlucky that it didn’t drop for an eagle. The ball comp went down to 31 points.

Mollymook visit
Jamberoo hosted Mollymook on Monday 21st July and Jamberoo prevailed with a scoring average of 30.08 points to Mollymook’s average of 24 points. The game was played in brilliant sunshine but surprisingly the scoring didn’t match the weather with only a handful of competitors playing to their handicap.

Bob Crooks 39 points
Richard Langford 38 points (c/b)
Theo Schmieder 38 points

Viv Boxsell 34 points
Sue Paul 30 points
The NTPs were won by Chris Goodwin (123cms) and Viv Boxsell (172cms)

Trevor Bell Shield
There was no play in July. The next game is scheduled for late August at Port Kembla. If you would like to play in future rounds of the Shield, please advise our Team Captain, Mr Ray Orr.

Around the Traps
Anyone who has played at the Links over the past year would have noticed the facilities being constructed between the 13th green and 14th tee. It must be very close to operational by now because during a recent visit (to the course not the facilities!) they have officially named the facility as “Nearest Point of Relief”.
