Aussie Footgolfers–2 day Event


What a fantastic weekend we had. Stage 12 on the Road To Marrakesh Weather held off JUST (see photo) on first day.

Team Australia is getting ready for the FIFG FootGolf World Cup. (early Dec) Playing with Nicolas Cousin (French Team) is always a great pleasure.

Nicco took home a memento from Jamberoo Footgolf—a mini soccer ball with Australain flag. This is the second time Nicco has played here —he “loves the vibe and beauty on our course”

Nico took the first place with -12 over the two days. Josh Ackland had a cracking second day to finish second, with -6. Followed by Troy Sullivan -5 and Joe Scibilia -4.


2018 Club Championship


As the scores in A Grade, B Grade and C Grade are all very close in this year’s exciting championships the possibility of ties for the Championships loom as a very real possibilities.

This possibility has been allowed for in the 2018 Conditions of Play that is available for perusal in the Members’ 2018 Programme Booklet or online on our web site at in the MORE/Notices and Downloads tab [page 6].

Here is an Excerpt from the 2018 Conditions of Play:

“In the event of a tie for a Club Championship, Foursomes Championship, Jamberoo Open or Mixed Open, then a four-hole aggregate playoff, starting at the first hole, will be used to determine the winner. If there is still a tie then a sudden-death playoff, starting at the 5th hole, will commence until there is a winner”.

Due to the widely spaced finishing times it will not be possible or fair to run any such playoff on the day. If you finish in a tie for the championship in any grade (ie the gross winner) you will be contacted by the club to arrange a playoff at a mutually agreeable time.

May you all your putts run truly.

Championship Update

The weather relented and the course was in remarkably good condition for the third round of the club championships but playing very tough and to its full length.

The big mover in A Grade today was George Vlatko  who climbed from third place to take the lead on 232. He won’t have it all his own way in the final round as several players are close enough if good enough. Arthur Bosanquet is on 233, Anthony Smith on 234, Pete Munro on 236, Scott Hainsworth on 238 and Tony Panecasio on 240.  Pete leads the nett on 200, 1 ahead of Anthony Smith.

John Anthony and B Grade leader Gary Harvey

Defending champion Gary Harvey has moved to the lead in B Grade on 250 and leads Paul Rodgers by 4 and Peter Francis by 5. Nett leader is Paul Rodgers on 200 with Peter Francis second on 204 and Larry Kent third on 208.

Brian Bennett leads C Grade on 275, six clear of Ian Martens and Warwick Drew. The unfortunate story is that overnight leader Robert Anderson had scored a good 93 off the stick to assert his presence and take a three shot lead. Sadly he was disqualified when he forgot to sign his card. Ian martens leads the nett on 209 with Brian second on 215 and Brett Fielding third on 216.

Robert Weir leads D Grade by 25 on 300 and appears almost certain to win the D Grade section.

Thanks to all members in understanding the necessity in protecting the course by not allowing golf carts today.

Hopefully fine weather will prevail next week and the championships will come to an exciting conclusion. Best of luck to all competitors.

16th Green

The bottom section of the 16th green is rarely used due to its dangerous proximity to the people leaving the 17th tee and because of its severe ‘graininess’.  Club resources are being used in maintaining it to a high standard and these can be better spent in other areas of the course.

As a trial, it is proposed to leave some of this bottom area unmown and not be considered part of the putting green. Balls hit from this new area can then be chipped onto the putting green.

Please leave any remarks in the comments section below.
