81 players braved the windy conditions on Saturday for the Culburra Kitchen and Bathrooms Single Stableford with the wind winning on the day with only 2 players playing under their handicap. Kev Pattison must have thought he had won A grade hitting off early for a 3 over par round , 38 points. Lucky for the mighty Manly league team Lloyd Pigram with par back nine came home with 39 points. Sorry Kev, Banga made me stand in front of the scores so he could send a text to rub in your lose. Third in A Grade Andrew Kohler. No winner for the drive and pitch on the 9th.

B Grade winner was Ray Wolfenden with a lowly 33 points next Brian Stapylton 32 on a count back from Mathew Davies. Drive and Pitch on the 4th Chris Lahene.

C Grade winner was Chris Witt with 36, Robert Carter 33 and Bob Biesheuvel 33. Drive and Pitch on the 15th Chris Witt.

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, June 19th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Top of the table clash between the two heavy weights resulted in a close game with Manly prevailing by 4 points thanks to a fine performance by Manly’s Lloyd Pigram well supported by Clarrie Raymer an d Warren Smart.For the Dragons none better than Kev Pattison and solid game from Capt Banga Bainbrigge.Manly now lead the competition by 1 Point from the Dragons.

Lack of troops finally caught up with the Sharks going down to the Eels 82-77.Not much to report on the game other than it was not a great spectacle.

In another low game the Bunnies fell in against the lowly Panthers by 84-79 the Panthers players were pelted with rubbish by their home crowd Gary Dwyer needed a Police escort from the ground while John VanDiejen was seen running for his life and vaulted the Northern fence to escape the angry mob.Evan Norris was again the best for the Bunnies.

The Roosters look to have put paid to the Dogs Semi asperations with a comfortable 101-93 victory.Chris Witt ,Col Burgess and Ray Wolfenden were solid for the Roosters the Dogs whilst trying hard just don’t look to have the Quality this year a lot of unrest in the Team.

The Tigers whilst not impressive were still good enough to defeat the Steelers 92-88. Andrew Kohler was the best on the field .In breaking news all is not well in the Tigers camp with Greg Pank being asked to front the Board to explain his attitude and the mail is that he will be moved on, a spokesperson for the Tigers who does not wished to be named when asked said “mate I hope they p—s  him off.Better off without him.

9th June Nowra Emergency Plumbing Single Stableford

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The threat of rain kept numbers down for the Nowra Emergency Plumbing Single Stableford with only 65 starters, 3 visitors, with not all players finishing their rounds.

With a number of players not playing and some goups requiring shuffling, a certain player was invited to play in the group of the Brian’s, Herring and Stapylton and Chris Pender. He was told on the first tee that they have brought down a lot players when they were invited to play. By the end if the round he wasn’t being invited back after Brian Herring had a wipe and missed 2 putts from within 4 feet. Something Brian doesn’t do very often, least not in the same round. Chris did stand up for him, reason that had a good score. It would have been different with a different score.

Golf League Round 13 Results

By Mens Golf on Monday, June 4th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

Round 13 seemed to be a bit of a bad omen for some of the top sides with many upsets.None more so than last placed Steelers defeating the front runners the Dragons despite the sending off of the Steelers Capt Brian Dwyer for decent.Steelers 222-227 Dragons.Solid games from Les Berghofer and Phil Nicolaides.Best for the Dragons was Steve Kohler.

The Tigers well below their best still managed to hold off the Eels 230-236.Andrew Kohler way the best for the Tigers and in the middle[you know who ]was again fearless in defence.Not much can be said for the Eels their big guns Cattell and Hewitt failed to ignite.

Manly clung on to defeat the Dogs by 1 point at Belmore,there were some ugly scenes at the end of play their Capt Brian Herring was given a Police escort from the Ground after another lack lustre performance and a large gathering were waiting as he left the dressing sheds in darkness hoping to avoid a variety of missiles that were hurled at him.Manly Captain Kirk Brown was the man of the Match whilst for the Dogs they welcomed the return of Bruce Ryan who turned in an outstanding game.

Last years Premiers went down again this time to the sharks 225-233.Greg Fulthorpe continues to hold the Sharks together and there is a distinct possibility that he will be wearing Black and Gold next year as the Tigers are desperate to move on one of their non performers who performs better on BBQ duties.For the Panthers play maker John VavDiejon tried hard with little support.

The Bunnies Semi Finals asperations took a dive when they were just beaten by the Roosters who are making a late surge towards the Finals.The Wolf Man was best for the Bondi Boys well supported by Capt Col Burgess.Bad Boy Rob Lidsey seems to have his temperament in order after medical councelling .For the Bunnies front rower Evan Norris was their best.Score 229-230.

Golf League Round 12 Saturday 26th May.

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, May 30th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The shock of the round was the win of the Roosters over the Premiers the Panthers 104-100.A man of the Match performance from bad boy Rob Lidsey proved to be the difference between the two sides it was good to see him temper his bad ways.The Panthers look only a shadow of last years Team and new recruit Gary Dwyer had another shocker and could see himself on the open market next year!!!

The Dragons bounced back from last weeks defeat to hand the Sharks a 14 point romp however Greg Fulthorpe for the Losers was again gallant in defeat.For the Dragons old timer Brian Stayplyton on his wonky legs played well also slippery half back Alan Chapman proved a handful.

As predicted the Mighty Tigers made mince meat of the Bulldogs who played more like Chihuahua’s than Bulldogs and once again “The Stranger”although a little slower these days was fearless in defence and was “chaired” from the field by his Team mates to the tune of for “he’s a jolly good fellow”.The Dogs Skipper Brian Herring was a “flop” again and “booed”from the ground under police escort.

The Bunnies remain in the top four with a close win over a much improved Steelers thanks to a late try by big front rower Evan Norris.The Steelers Captain Brian Dwyer at last showed a bit of form but his effort was to no avail as the rest of his Team were abysmal.Next week the Steelers take on the Dragons the Team that Brian Dwyer was hoping to play for this season however they did not want him lets hope he can prove them wrong with a solid display.

The Manly “Silvertails”were not very impressive against an under strength Parramatta running out winners 106-92.Captain Bruce Eddy played well for the Eels and warren Smart and Clarrie Raymer were solid for winners.Manly certainly have the side to challenge the Dragons however will need their Captain Kirk Brown to be at his best and it should be interesting when they meet in round 15.

Golf League Round 11 Saturday 19/05/2018

By Mens Golf on Monday, May 21st, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The Postponed game from last week proved that the Dragons are certainly beatable with the Bunnies on the back of fine games from Evan Norris and Col Brigstock handed them a 15 point drubbing.For the losers Kev Pattison tried hard but to no avail.

The Mighty Tigers were much too good for last years Premiers the Panthers easy winners by 18 points.Last years player of the series Alan Tonacia showed a bit of last years form with a solid display for the Panthers who sadly missed the direction of their Skipper Croaky Edmunds who may be on the side line for some time.We wish him a speedy recovery.For the victors none better than Andrew Kohler and Vince Morris whilst” the Strangers” defence around the ruck area was outstanding.

A very ordinary game between The Dogs and The Steelers saw the Dogs prevail by the narrowest of margins 2 points separated the Teams at the end of play however the crowd had already dispersed.Chris Pender was the best for the Dogs with Steve Mauger back from holidays also turning in a fair effort.The Steelers must surely be looking for a new Captain next year Grant Morris played well with little support.The Dogs play the Tigers next week and the big Cat will surely be licking its paws around 1-30 on Saturday.

A badly depleted Eels went down to the Roosters 94-86 in a low scoring game Chris Witt was a stand-out for the Roosters whilst speedy winger Alona Brown was best for the Eels whose Semi-Final chances look dead and buried.Same can be said for the Roosters they also look gone this year their attitude needs to change as one player continues to be a disruptive force having been sent off twice this year for kicking and pokeing the referee.

Manly consolidated second place on the Ladder with a 108-90 victory over the Sharks who don’t seem to be able to field a full side.Manly welcomed back Ash Hoogwerf with a man of the match performance.Kirk Brown and John Bruton also had solid games.For the Steelers Greg Fulthope always puts in and was again their best.
