10th November Solomon Motors Single Stableford

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

With the course in great condition thanks to the recent rain and efforts of the green staff the scores are rising with 37 points needed just to win a ball. John Black has taken a liking to these conditions with  another round where he has had a stroke score under his age. Something most of us only dream of.

With the greens improving after the recent coring it would be appreciated if you would repair your pitch marks. There are players each week who either don’t care or are too lazy to repair their own pitch marks. The green staff are doing a great job, a little thought and help will help them keep the greens in great condition.

13th October Nowra Emergency Plumbing Single Stableford

By Mens Golf on Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

88 players teed off for the Nowra Emergency Plumbing single stableford with the threat of rain keeping some players away. They should have rung Alona Brown the new weather girl who turned up to play and kept the rain away.

The best score for the day belonged to Brett Bishop with another round of 4 under and 42 points. Brett is going through a purple patch and if his form continues he will be off scratch very soon.

B Grade went to the club secretary Rob Lidsey who held  his form after a near miss with a tiger snake on the 15th. Not sure who was the most scared. The snake got bigger the longer the day went on. Although Bob “Harry Butler” Walsh assured those in the club house that the small ones are more poisonous than big ones. This didn’t seem to matter to Rob.

6th October Wray Owen Monthly Medal

By Mens Golf on Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 in Mens Golf. No Comments.

The threat of rain for the Wray Owen Monthly medal saw 83 players get through without getting wet.

Some faired better than others. Congratulations go to Geoff Rankin who managed to keep his score on the 7th to under 10, a big inprovement on score he had to write down during the club champinships. Also a spcial mention to Steve Mauger who managed to 4 put the 4th. I believe the last 3 from within a very small distance.

A great round from Brett Bishop with a 2 under round, 68. A shame it came 2 weeks late and not in the final round of the championships

Thanks Sharon and Lloyd for cooking the BBQ. To those who complained about no butter or margarine we were just looking after your health. Also those who we confused becaused we sliced the buns from the top not from the side, we had a number of players who thought it was good idea. Be careful next month they not be sliced at all.
