News from the Course

Saturday Comp Rain Affected

After months of drought who could believe that an important event at our course would be washed out?

Well it happened today!

With the first groups out on the course Friday night’s torrential rainstorm returned and made the greens unplayable. The match committee had little choice but to cancel the round and schedule the Monthly Medal and Gold medal playoff to next Saturday the 25th of November.

Of course, as it always does, the storm cleared and the course was perfectly playable by 11.30 am but by this time all had left.

Lets hope for better weather next week.

Annual Presentation Day

Our annual Presentation day will be held at the club on Sunday 3rd of December. Tickets are $25 a head and include cheese and savouries, the main course and desert.

During this round the winners of the monthly medals from the previous 12 months in each grade playoff for the gold medal in that grade.

Check out the list on the noticeboard to see if you are involved.

 A Week to Late

Steve Oppert approached the 16th last Saturday with trepidation, the previous week’s disaster still fresh on his mind. Last week a double bogey or better would have won him the C grade championship. Steve plunked two in the drink that week to finish with a 9 and join those members who have great things ruined on this hole.

Saturday it almost got him again. The third shot in the pond then a knife over the green beyond the hill at the back and with the flag on a slope at the front he was basically ‘dead’. Not to be deterred, Steve hit the perfect shot that rolled down the hill, across the green and into the hole for an unbelievable 6.

Oh what a difference a week makes.

Presentation Day

The annual presentation day will be held on Sunday December 3.

This very important day sees both the Ladies and Gentlemen club champions presented with their trophies as well as the gold medalists, foursomes champions and other major award winners receive their accolades.

More details about the cost and venue will follow in another article.

Meanwhile please put this day down in your diary.

This Week’s Results

There was a spot or two of rain this week and the course has greened up remarkably. Further growth and I am sure we will be soon playing “as it lies” again.

The split six on Saturday was well received by members despite the unusual format and came as a break from four weeks of constant stroke play in the championships. I wonder how many friends are not talking after their 4 pointer was multiplied by their partners 0?

Hope to see you on the course next week.
