Carbrook - 13/9/2009 winners

If you like you like putting on marble, or billiard tables, or kitchen benchtops .... Carbrook is the place for you. I'm sure the greenkeeper has a lot of fun with that hole placement on the 9th. (photo supplied by Rodney "3 Clubs" Topor)

Thanks to the Carbrook members for presenting the course so immaculately. Perfect weather conditions again.

The winners were:

Nearest the pin:
14th - David Westover (about 1 metre - he missed!)
7th - Shane Carroll (about 3.8 metres - he missed!)
Long Drive:
Ladies - Karen Greedy
Mens - Bruce Rowlands [longest drive behind a tree - Ian Smith]

Stableford Comp:
1st - Karen Greedy 38 pts
2nd - Howard Ward 34pts
3rd - David Westover 34 pts (ocb) (?)

[Notable absentee from this list is Paul Lockwood-Lee who's pre-round confidence in his game was obviously misplaced on the day. Also absent on the day was 'Player of the Year' contender Owen Wright who must be at home practicing for the last few events...]

Next game is at Keperra on 11/10/2009.

Throwing down the gauntlet!!!

Look out folks, I had a game mid last week down at Emerald Lakes & hit 99 of the stick (my social club h/cap is 33) so you can see why I was chuffed.

(If it were a club game i'd have taken 42pts)

Now that's fighting talk, who's up for the challange.

The next game for the year will be held at Carbrook Golf Club, 653 Beenleigh-Redland Bay Road, Carbook, about 9km from the Pacific Motorway, on Sunday 13 September. Arrival time is 7.15am for tee-off at 7.30am. The phone number of the pro shop there is 3287 6440.

Carbrook is the home club of Andrew, Jane and me, but we promise not to exploit our home ground advantage!

The course is currently in very good condition. Let's hope we have a little rain between now and then, so it remains that way, and that the weather is mild and dry on the day.

Please let me know by Monday whether or not you are playing, so I can inform Carbrook of our numbers a week ahead, as they request.

As usual, if you discover that you can't play after accepting, please, please let me or Paul (0403 901 344) know as soon as possible.

I look forward to seeing you at Carbrook.
