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.

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.

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.

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

With one round remaining Souths the Eels and Bulldogs are safely in the four with Penrith despite their loss to the Eels cling on to fourth spot as other results went their way.Manly despite been written off a couple of weeks ago can still make the four with a win over the Panthers and The Tigers and Saints lose their games.

Despite a match winning game from their skipper Greg Bainbrigge the Saints were soundly beaten by last placed Raiders by 9 points.Good games from Les Berghofer and Mick Edwards.

The Bunnies by 3 Points on the back of good games from Les Cuka and Sonny whilst the old fella Brian Herring was by far the best for the Dogs.

A full strength Tigers went down by 1 Point to a weakened Manly one player in the Tigers Team is on a free transfer next year he never figured in the point scoring the whole 13 rounds to date and only has one week to score to avoid the nudie run.

The Eels on the back of a match winning performance by Bruce Eddy were 7 point victors over the Panthers.

Ladder: Souths 19,Eels 17,Bulldogs 14,Panthers12,Tigers 11,Saints 11,Manly 11,Raiders 9.

Final Round :Saints Vs Eels, Bunnies Vs Raiders,Panthers Vs Manly,  Bulldogs Vs Tigers.

At last the Golfing Gods gave us a perfect day for our number one Event of the year the weather was fantastic and the day although a little slow went well especially for Ian Asbury from Shoalhaven Heads who is the Worrigee Open Champion for 2017 posting a one under par round of 69.Not far behind him was Mark Panopoulos from the Killara Golf Club with a 70 and one further back was Greg Bainbrigge with a fine 71.

This Event gains in popularity every year this we had players from 20 different Golf Clubs taking part all of them praising our Greens in particular but pretty happy with the course in general.It was good to see Dave Laurie from Goulburn here Dave had previously won the Event on two previous occasions but was not far away again with a solid 74.Previous winner Troy Monie was also in the field but the best he could do this year was 77.Our own Club Champion Mick Edwards was solid with 76.

Southern Water Company Single Stableford Saturday 26/08/2017

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, August 30th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Great day for Golf a little cold early but perfect a bit later in the morning and Lindsay Beal and Allan Steeden made the most of it posting the second best scores of the day with a pair of 41’s.It wasn’t all plain sailing for Lindsay as his playing Partner mucked up his starting time by an hour and he wasn’t impressed but as they say good things come to those that wait and they were seen having the odd one after the game so all was forgiven.

The best score belonged to Gary Dwyer brother of our Captain Brian with a score of 42 pts.Gary has just returned to the area after many years away and Dennis Rutherford runner up in C Grade probably wished he had stayed away a little bit longer.

And what about Alona Brown been off the scene for weeks comes back and fires a brilliant 39 pts to completely blitz the Ladies.Well done Alona.

A Grade  Mick Liddy 38/12 R/U Clarrie Raymer 37/10 3rd  Brian Herring 37/9.

B Grade Lindsay Beal 41/18 R/U Allan Steeden 41/14  3rd D.Reid 39/15.

C Grade  Garry Dwyer 42/28  R/U Dennis Rutherford 40/22 Bruce Eddy 39/22

Ladies :Alona Brown 39/24.

Drive and Pitch: A Grade Steve Kohler B Grade Not won. C Grade Les Hall.

Nearest To Pin :8th Greg Pile  14th Dave Hedger.

Golden Shot  :Kauri Pirika.

Balls to 36.

A big field of 128 for the Open on Saturday please be a little patient there will be some hold ups with 2 Groups hitting off most tees,but also be mindful of slow play please move along were possible Rob Nancarrow will be on the course to move you along if need be but it should be a great day and for the first time in a while the weather looks promising.

Kingtide Oysters Golf League Round 13

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, August 30th, 2017 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

With only two rounds remaining the Bunnies are the only team assured of a semi-final spot although for the first time this year we do have a stand out top four.The Saints will do it tough now going down to the dogs 108-87 and will need to win both their games to have a chance .Good performances from Brian Herring and Chris Pender they were much too good for an understrength Dragons.

The Tigers are in the same boat slipping out of the top four for the first time and also only a slight hope of making the play-offs being flogged 114-100 by the Eels.Their star winger Alona Brown has been side lined for some time made a stunning return for the Eels in a match winning performance stepping past her opposite number Rob Lidsey on many occasions the latter will be looking for a new club next season.

The bunnies while not brilliant prevailed over a poor Manly side by 99-90 strong games from Billy Gatt and Glen Ceissman,Manly the pre season favourites are now gone for the season.The loss of the Manly Playboy Ken Bailey through illness has not helped their cause and also a poor season from top signing Lloyd Pigram who will probably find himself on the open market next year.

In the final game the Panthers defeated an improved Raiders in a close one 101-98.Thats three wins in a row for the Panthers who now find themselves in the 4 for the first time.Strong games by Chris Witt and Alan Tonacia whilst for the losers Lindsay Beal put in a top class effort.

Ladder:Souths 17,Eels 15,Bulldogs 14,Panthers 12,Tigers 11,Saints 11,Manly 9,Raiders 7.

Man of Series: Will be revealed on Grand Final Day.

Any one that has not payed their $10 could you please pay ASAP to me or leave in pro-shop.

Next Weeks Games: Saints Vs Raiders: Bunnies Vs Dogs: Tigers Vs Manly: Panthers Vs Eels.
