Tip of the week: you need golf clubs when you play golf. A certain player turned up to the first tee on Wednesday and didn’t realise that he didn’t have his clubs on his cart. He was lucky to still have his clubs as they fell off the back of his cart on the way to play. He was also lucky that they didn’t fall off when he came back from Callala after playing in Shoalhaven Shield on Sunday. Tony, I’m sure we will not let you forget this , particularly ” The Stranger”

Good Golfing

Better luck for the next round at Nowra.

King Tide Oysters Golf League

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

This year there will be 10 teams and 2 full Rounds will be played.Teams will consist of 6 players and the best 3 scores will be taken from each Team.Should a Team have only 2 players 25 pts will be awarded in stableford Events and stroke 85 nett.Should a Team have only 1 player they will forfeit the match.Teams and Draw are on the notice Board first game to commence on the Monthly Medal in March.

Last years winners The Panthers should once again be hard to beat they have also purchased Pete Hamilton and up and comer Gary Dwyer.The Dragons will be a tougher proposition with the purchase of top Dragon Alan Chapman.Manly also look to be stronger with top picks with ash Hoogwerf Mr consistency Clarrie Raymer and John Bruton.

The Dogs Capt of last year Brian Herring has been replaced by Richie Lydon due to Mr Herrings constant outbursts against officialdom his behaviour will be under close scrutiny this year.

The Steelers new Team in this year under Captain Brian Dwyer look set for the wooden spoon whilst other new comer the Sharks look a Team that could go places.

Col Burgess’s Roosters another new Team will struggle as will the Bunnies and Eels.

The mighty Tigers will again be a force to be feared even though they unsuccessfully tried to transfer “Panky”but alas there were no takers!!!

23rd December single stableford

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

92 players contested Saturday’s single stableford with Christmas coming early for George Jurotte who had the best score of the day with 50 points, we’ll clear of everyone else. I’m sure the handicapper will not leave him on a handicap of 28 for too long.

A Grade winner was Claire Rayner with 46 followed by Cam Fraser, 43 points and Paul Harris third with 40.

B Grade Bob Walsh with 43 points. We think it was Bob who won as a couple of weeks ago he was heard saying he wasn’t going to play golf again. Kirk Brown with 41 beat Mark Gatt on count back for second.

C Grade George Jurotte 50 points, Andrew Strachan second 41 points and Tom McMaster third with 39’points.

Nearest the pins:

6th Cam Fraser

8th and Golden Jackpot winner  Matthew Davies.

Bad luck to Rob Nancarrow who had his name on both cads for a while.

14th Mark Scruse.

No one hit close enough to win the Culburra Kitchens sponsored 17th.

Drive and Pitch:

A Grade 10th John Van Diejen

B Grade 3rd John Black

C Grade 13th Leslie McMaster

Anyone interested in playing in the “King Tide Oysters” league starting in February, the sheet is up on the notice board. This is the second year for the league, with last years league a lot of fun. I’m sure the trade period will be interesting as a lot talk has been had in the off season on who should and shouldn’t be in teams based on last years performances.

Good golfing and Happy New Year.

86 players started on Saturday with the heat taking it’s toll with some players not completing their round.

A Grade was won by John Peters with 41 points, Leigh Elder second with 40 and Cameron Fraser hanging onto third with 39.

B Grade with best score of the day went to Claire Rayner with 42 points. Chris  Pender had 40 points to claim second. Hopefully the handicapper will make adjustments to his handicap this week after 44 last week. Third went Ashley Hoogwerf with 39.

Club president Greg Pank hung onto to win C Grade with 40 points from John Burton and Bruce Eddy third with the same score.

Golden shot on the sixth won by Bruce Eddy. Shame he missed the birdie putt as it would have won him C Grade.

Nearest the pin on the eighth was Reg Greenhalgh and the fourteenth John Peters.

No one won the Culburra Kitchen eagle nest on the seventeenth with 18 balls on offer next week.

Drive and pitch winners:

A Grade nineth Callan Spreadbury

If there is anyone interested in playing in the White Horse Cup next year, please put your name on the sheet on the notice board or let Kirk Brown know.
