2nd February Wray Owen Monthly Medal

By Mens Golf on Thursday, February 7th, 2019 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The rain scared a number of players away for the Wray Owen Monthly Medal with only 64 completing their rounds. The wet weather didn’t stop some good scores being recorded with Rainer Otte taking out the monthly mug with 66 on a count back from committee member Steve Kohler.

Thanks to Brad Henderson for helping with BBQ.

Not the best of starts for the representive season. White Horse Cup lost 5 1/2 to 1/2 and the Shoalhaven Shield lost 7 to 1. The 1 point from two halved games. Better luck for the next game.

The printers have had issues with the fixture book and apologise for not having it out yet. There is a  copy of February’s events in the Pro shop for those who want one.

Next week Solomon Motors Single Stableford.

Good Golfing.

19th January Solomon Motors Single Stableford

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The cooler conditions on Saturday didn’t stop some red hot scores being recorded with 104 starters for the Solomon Motors sponsored Single Stableford.

Best score of the day belonged to Allan Chapman with 45 points. You needed 39 or better just to get a ball.

Shot of the day belonged to “The Stranger” who won the nearest the pin on the 6th. On his return after not being the best of health, not sure how he did it nor how someone else  didn’t beat him. Hitting this great shot may have had sonething to do with another in the same group having to go back after his round to find his putter on 12 after a little mishap.
