On Wednesday we played the Wray Owen Monthly Mug attracting 57 starters with a shotgun start. The Mug winner was Brian Stayplton with a net 61. Well Played Brian. The A Grade winner was Paul Wallace with a net 66, B Grade was won by Lyndsey Elliott with a 62 net and C Grade by Ken Stevenson with 67 net. Scoring was good overall with 16 players having net 60s considering the greens are still coming back after coreing.

Everyone enjoyed the hotdogs after the game.

Good to see Bruce Ryan, Brian Malvern and Claude Dall’Orto back after their break.

Our President has been on the sick list for the last couple of weeks. We wish him a speedy recovery.

Fixtures coming up: 23rd September Ladies Tournament HELP NEEDED, 25th September Calderwood, 29th September Jack Elliott Day, 30th September deferred day at Mollymook.

There is a par 3 day at Nowra on 14th October.

Listed below is the Race To October update:

Race to October: Update after round on 11 SeptemberTo be eligible for any of the Race to October prizes, players must have completed at least 23 rounds during the regular season.  There are 3 rounds remaining in the regular season.

As at 11 September, 49 players have already played at least 23 rounds and there are another 8 who can reach 23 games by the end of the regular season.  Names in italics on the leaderboard indicate players who need additional rounds to qualify.

Race to October “Player of the Year”

The points leader at the end of the regular season will be anointed the Race To October Player of the Year.  As this trophy is a recognition of our most consistent performer over the year, this competition will be all grades combined.

After the Mug round on 11 September, Paul Wallace (with a 5th placing and 155 points) has taken a 65 point lead in the “Player of the Year” race.  The Race remains quite tight with many of the Top 10 players a good chance of catching Paul over the next three weeks.

Race to October Stableford Finale

The Race to October Stableford Finale will be conducted over 54 holes in conjunction with the three stableford rounds on the 16th, 23rd and 30th October.  For the Finale, in addition to the overall Finale winner, we will also have Grade winners.  For this event, players will receive bonus stableford points based on the Race to October leaderboard points they have achieved during the regular season.  The leaderboard put up on the pillar outside the pro shop on Wednesday’s shows the number of rounds played and the bonus points which would have applied had that round been the last round of the season.

It would be much appreciated if you remember to rake the bunkers.

Nominations for positions at next month’s AGM should be on the noticeboard this week.

Next week’s event is Booth And Partners Single Stableford.
