News From the Course – 22nd July

Jamberoo Men’s Open

Good luck and play well to all competitors in tomorrow’s Jamberoo Open. The greens should be firm and fast and will test the ability and skill of the quality field that has gathered to play.

A special thank you to Drummond Golf at Shellharbour for their support of our major event of the year.

Lady Veterans Open Day

All members, both ladies and gentlemen, are invited to play in the Lady Veterans Open Day on Thursday 3 August.

Enjoy great company, a good meal and some friendly conversation on this ‘must be there’ day.

For your $5 for lunch you will get roast beef or ham sandwiches, a lovely slice of cake and tea or coffee. Great value indeed.

The booking sheet is in the Lady Veterans folder in the golf shop. Join the other members who have already put their name down and have a great day on the course.

Another Ace Recorded

Congratulations go to Michael Sheridan who had a hole-in-one on the 15th on Wednesday. Michael hit his driver off the tee and watched with joy as the ball took a trajectory straight for the hole and went in.

To reward Michael for his perfect shot, the ball he used will be mounted as a permanent reminder and Michael will receive 6  balls from the club.

Well played Michael.

Expressions of Interest

After several years of dedicated service to the club in running the monthly medal BBQ, Margaret Stephens has decided that she can no longer organise this event due to a variety of personal reasons. The club would like to thank Marg for her efforts in running this popular and highly successful event each month and the club has been enriched by to your efforts.

We now are taking expressions of interest for any interested member who feels that they can take over Marg’s role. Please contact Lance, Keith or the office if you could help us out.

Ready Golf

If you are ready to play when it is your turn then you are playing ready golf. It doesn’t mean that you have to rush your game, nor does it mean that you miss out on the banter within your group. Just be ready to hit when it is your shot.

Unusual Bait

Occasionally some members have been seen trying to catch a fish in the waterways around the course. I have often wondered what bait they use in their endeavour.

Today I found out.

Gordon Dill today obviously was using his golf bag for bait. How else can I explain how his whole kit got in the dam on the 8th? Apparently he caught a trout.

Trevor Bell Memorial Shield – Monday 10th July

 by Chris Goodwin

The wind chill factor this morning was a major factor in today’s results while it whistled across the greens. A downhill putt with the wind at your back was treacherous to say the least. The outstanding round of the day belonged to Phil Gosling from Jamberoo who had 41 points, including an eagle on the par 4 14th hole. Phil was the runaway winner with the next best being 37 points. Unfortunately, Phil’s exploits were not matched by the rest of the team (me included) who struggled in the cold and difficult conditions.

Our hosts Russell Vale were the winners today with 198 points, followed by Kiama (197), Port (196), Jamberoo (193), The Links (185), The Grange (181) and Wollongong who played with a man short with 179. Russell Vale again excelled themselves with their BBQ and a refreshing beer (just what we needed after nearly getting blown off the course!).

Today’s result has brought about a change to the scoreboard with Kiama taking a point lead over Port:

Kiama                    601

Port Kembla       600

Jamberoo            573

The Links             571

Wollongong        549

The Grange        535

Russell Vale        534

The next round is at Kiama on Monday 14th August  and the nomination sheet has been posted on the notice board.
