News from the Course – June 9

Ladies pennants

Both Jamberoo teams were successful this week. The Goldies won 4.5 to 0.5 against the Grange at Kiama in a strong comeback performance after a couple of close losses in the previous two weeks. The Silver Roos also played strongly winning 3-2 against St George’s Basin also at Kiama. This continues the trend of strong performances in recent weeks.

Well played to both teams. Go the Roos!

Taking a Leap

Mal Garratt reports an interesting occurrence last Saturday. Playing partner Glynn was looking for a ball in Hyam’s Creek on the 18th. It was only a small rill that he tried to jump but unfortunately for Glynn he misjudged the far bank and in he went. What’s more, it wasn’t even his ball. Another victim of the creek!

Shot of the Week

This week’s ‘shot of the week’ was easily won by Chris Goodwin.

Last Wednesday Chris was planning his tee shot on the 5th hole allowing for his little fade. Taking careful aim he unfortunately pulls the shot into the third tree on the left. The ball disappears from view only to re-emerge back on the first tee! A nett loss of 30 metres.

Well played Chris.
