Saturday 28th October Sponsors Day

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The day was all about the sponsors and a record field of over 120 players made it a great day.Well done to new sponsor Anthony Munn from Kingtide Oysters they blitzed the field by 4 shots from a gallant Solomon Motors team and in 3rd spot was Sturgiss Newsagency.The Solomon Team were seen celebrating late into the afternoon as its their best finish ever Craig would have been proud of the lads especially Gary besides his great leadership managed to behave himself in the Club although he was seen continually tormenting one poor old soul a much loved and respected elder!!!

Our thanks to Rob and Greg in the Pro shop for getting the field away on time,to Stu Dossetor and “Bulldog”Herring for breakfast,and yes “Panky” and Rob for the BBQ although I think their compatabilty might have been a bit tested and”Panky” has put his hand up to do all future BBQ’S.What a Leader.!!!

Thanks to Liz Steedan, Pat Collier and Cheryl Bargwanna for their help with the salads and “Croaky” for washing up.Thanks to Alfie for not turning up his replacement Cheryl is a much more likable person.

Don’t forget names for presentation night ASAP a poor crowd could see the demise of the evening in future so please make the effort.!!!

This Saturday is the Medal of Medal Day.

80 members and 1 visitor competed in the shot gun  start preceded by the AGM when the Club welcomed Lloyd Pigram as our new Secretary and Ray Wolfenden to the General Committee.It was a little disappointing that some of our new members elected to stay outside and not attend the meeting .

The best of the day was 5 shots better than anyone a day he told me that nothing went wrong well done to Chris Witt 45 big pts.Best in A Grade was our new Secretary Lloyd Pigram with a well compiled 39 pts and the Urunga Kid Reg Greenhalgh was to good for the B Graders beating Kirk Brown on a countback with 40 pts.

The best 2 scores of the day belonged to Trent Boundy and Grant Hoffman with a pair of 41’s a pretty good score seeing the Greens had just been cored.playing off 21 and 18 respectfully I think their handicaps will soon be on a downward spiral as Trent scored 13 pts on the par 5’s and Grant not far behind having scored 12 Pts on the par 5’s.Well done to both players.Another player sneaking under the Radar is Gary Dwyer brother of our Captain Brian who posted a good score of 40 pts its good to see there is some talent in the family.

A couple of players who didn’t adjust to the greens were Andrew Strachan who could manage only 1 pt on the front nine but found his legs on the back nine and A Grader Steve ?? could only manage 18 pts for the day.

A Grade  Rod Carpenter 38/9 R/U Callan Spreadbury 37/3 3rd Evan Norris 37/10

Saturday week is a 4 Person Ambrose just put your name on board as usual if you don’t have a team.Lunch will be provided.

There have been numerous complaints about people bending the rules lately if you see something wrong see the starter or a committee person and report it so that the player in question can be advised.They may not be familiar with the indiscretion that may have occurred.

Final Round Club Championships Saturday 23/09/2017

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, September 26th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Another year and last years Champion Mick Edwards stole the Champion Trophy from the unbackable Troy Monie who held a 7 shot lead over Mick coming into the final Round but only Troy knows what happened and Mick despite an opening Round of 85 finds himself our Champion this year with scores of 85,74 and 73 finishing in front of the fast finishing Kev Pattison with Rounds of 79,84 and a great par round of 70 to come up 1 stroke shy of Mick.

Another big leader in B Grade Mick Martin was 9 clear of Ashley Hoogwerf who fired a 79 in the last round and Mick could only manage an 89 and went down by 1 stroke.

C Grade was closer coming into the last round but the leader Bob Sutherland couldn’t match it with “The Chancellor of the Exchequer” Rob Lidsey who had a final Round of 86 to be this years Champion in C Grade.

A Grade Gross Champion Mick Edwards Runner Up  Kev Pattison.

A Grade Nett Champion Clarrie Raymer  Runner Up  Col Cattell.

B Grade Gross Champion Ashley Hoogwerf. Runner Up Mick Martin.

B Grade Nett Champion John Black. Runner Up Kel Turner.

C Grade Gross Champion Rob Lidsey  Runner Up Bob Sutherland.

C Grade Nett Champion Tony Edmunds Runner Up Vince Morris.

For the first time in weeks the wind held off and this reflected in the scores none better than Kev Pattison with a nett 62 the best of the day followed by Ashley Hoogwerf 63 and old Croaky with a 64.Even Panky nearly broke a 100 but you cant have everything good looks,a surfie,he spent most of his youth on the waves followed by herds of groupies until he met the lovely Cath and settled down and made little “Panks” to arrive on Planet Earth!!!

Grand Final Kingtide Oysters League

By Mens Golf on Monday, September 25th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The Panthers are this years winners,coming from last and just scraping into the finals they knocked over Minor Premiers Souths last week and on Saturday despite not having their star recruit Alan Tonacia they flogged a disappointing Bulldogs by 26 points.This must surely be the end for the Bulldogs Captain although having a fair game himself he does not inspire his Team his behaviour off the field,ranting and raving about the rules surely must pose a question mark over his sanity.On the other hand the Penrith Captain whilst not showing a lot early in the season and looking a little over done[maybe see Big Bucks Bailey about his training program] fired in the Finals and was an inspiration to his Team.

The Winning Team Tony Edmunds [Capt] John Van Diejon,Greg Fulthorpe,Chris Witt,Alan Tonacia.

Big thanks to Anthony Munn for sponsoring this Event from Kingtide Oysters Greenwell Point.

Look Forward to a bigger and better comp next year.

Mens Second Round Club Championships Saturday 16/09/2017

By Mens Golf on Monday, September 18th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

If you hit off early you at least got the front nine in before the Gale arrived and once again conditions were very testing to say the least.A good field though of 100 and only 5 players chucked it in.

Last years Champ kept it down this week with a respectable 74 while last weeks leader Troy Monie probably had his worst round ever with an 8o .Andrew Kohler with a 77 and Clarrie Raymer 79 also played well in the conditions but Troy looks to have it sewn up holding a 7 shot lead over Mick.

In B Grade Mick Martin although 9 strokes worse off this week still holds a comfortable 5 shots lead over the consistent Warren Smart with a pair of 86’s pays to get out early,and these two are well clear of the rest of the field.

C Grade is a lot closer with only 3 shots separating four players,Bob Sutherland 183,Rob lidsey 185, Les hall 186 and Dennis Reid 186.Should be a good battle come Saturday.

Nominations are now on the Board for next years committee please feel free to have a go and put your name down we need some younger blood badly.

In view of the tragic circumstances regarding our long term Caterer Mark it looks as though our Presentation Night will be on upstairs in the Jacaranda Room this year we need a good role up to make it worth while and a small charge may have to be introduced this year for the first time however for a three course meal including drinks it still a cheap night and don’t forget to bring the Ladies we need a good role up this year and they are more than welcome to attend.

Next week final Round of the Club Champioships Sponsored by Crofty’s Tyres And Autos.

Minor Premiers Souths fell to the Panthers despite the Panthers missing their gun player through injury.They will take on the lucky Bulldogs who fell in again the Eels whose star player Bruce Eddy was carried off in a stretcher.All is well he has no long term injury however he must watch from the grandstand next week as the Panthers do battle with the Bulldogs in the Grand Final.

Scores:Panthers 218 beat the Bunnies 225,     Bulldogs 227 beat the Eels 229.

There will be some anxious moments for the Dogs with their Captain before the Judiciary charged with conduct unbecoming.

The Good Judge.

Wray Owen Monthly Mug and First Round Championships

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

A big field of nearly 100 took off in cool and windy conditions although the day settled down a bit later and some excellent scores were recorded.

In A grade past Champion Troy Monie got off to a solid start with a 2 over closely followed by Brett Bishop with a 73 however the latter does not qualify for the Championships due to number of games played this year.Next best was Paul Harris with a 77.

The A Grade nett sees Col Cattell and Troy with nett 70’s closely followed by 3 Golfers on 71 they being Rod Carpenter,Kev Pattison and Lloyd Pigram.

In B Grade Mick Martin has blitzed the field with a great 79 off the stick 7 strokes clear of Warren Smart and a further 1 shot back to Ashley Hoogwerf.

Mick is also 8 shots clear of Brian Dwyer in the Nett together with Ashley Hoogwerf both on 72.

In C Grade sees another good round by Rob Lidsey with an 86 well clear of second placed Les Hall with 91 with a further 1 stoke back to Dennis Reid on 92.

The Nett leader in C Grade is Ivan Barrette with an outstanding 64 three shots clear of Rob Lidsey on 67 and a further 3 shots back to outstanding prospect Gary Dwyer.

The Monthly Mug Winner for September is Ivan Barrette 64/32.Well done Ivan.

Could players please try to rake the bunkers properly so that you don’t inconvenience players behind you and if your in a bunker that does need some work please take the time and do the right thing and repair the damage.
