Wantima game 11th June 2017



Wantima game 11th June 2017
Sorry folks a real bummer of a day, we all knew small showers were a possibility for the day, but the met office & my definition are clearly from a different dictionary.
We tried but alas the game after the first couple of dry holes (apart from underfoot) was a wash-out, with the majority of players wishing to call it quits either after the first nine or when one of us drowned, whichever came first.
It was a shame, as our year has already succumbed to the weather once this season already (Riverlakes).
I think it only fair to allocate points for appearance & as we were all able to get through two of the prize holes, then the balls & bonus will also be allotted.
Thanks to Ken for negotiating a special rate for the game with the pro-shop and thanks also to Dave for bringing in a couple of potential new members who didn’t hold the poor weather against us.
Also a quick mention for Mr Wellington (great name for the day) who by the time we stopped scoring after 6 holes already had 16 points on the card, quite outstanding considering the conditions.
Sorry we couldn’t continue & had to call the overall results for the game null & void.   
Now for the results (such as they were):
NTP on the 12th – Paul Wellington.
Mens Long drive 14th – Paul Wellington.
Places: N/A
Next game is at McLeod on the 9th of July 7.00am tee off.
Regards until then.

HILLS - JIMBOOMBA MAY 7TH 2017



HILLS - JIMBOOMBA MAY 7TH 2017
Just seven at Jimboomba, which is a shame, as this is certainly a course with some differently styled holes, and always proves to be a tough test of one’s golfing ability.
The run we had on the ball which is traditional here, was exaggerated this year as the floods recently down this way must have left a fair amount of mud (now dried) just below the thin grass layer.
Scoring seemed to be a fairly high standard all around, but I’m sure many of us came a cropper more times than we would have liked on some of Jimboomba’s tricky layout.
Thanks to all who made it all the way out to Jimboomba. Now for the results:
NTP on the 8th – Dave Coster
NTP on the 13th – Bryan Kendall
Mens Long drive 18th – Paul Wellington
Ladies Long drive 18th – n/a
1st place on 39 points – Paul Wellington 
2nd place on 37 points – Bryan Kendall
3rd place on 33 points – Dan Williams
Next game is at Dave’s home course, Wantima, on the 11th of June.
Hope to see you then.

Regards until then.

Carbrook game 12th March 2017



Carbrook game 12th March 2017
11 players for this game, with at tight tussle at the top and many players lurking just below the 1st to 3rd placegetters.

A warmish day but nothing like last month’s game thankfully, the highlight from the group I was with was a beautifully played birdie hole buy Phil on a par 5, every shot was about as good as it gets, so a 5 pointer was registered on his card for that one. We high handicappers need those little boosts to the ego now and then, because when we get better they are going to be near impossible.

Short report this month, sorry, just a bit flat out at present.

Now for the results:
NTP on the 2nd – David Geils
NTP on the 14th – Mike O’Neill
Mens Long drive 4th – Ken Greedy
Ladies Long drive 4th – Karen Greedy
1st place on 39 points – Paul Lockwood-Lee  
2nd place on 38 points – Karen Greedy
3rd place on 38 points – Bryan Kendall 

Next game is at Riverlakes 09.04.2017 at 7.00am tee off.
Regards until then.
