Next game: 9 May at Mcleod Country Golf Club

The next game for the year will be held on 9 May at Mcleod Country Golf Club, Gertrude Mcleod Crescent, Mt Ommaney. To get there, find your way to the Centenary Motorway, take the exit at Sumners Rd or Mt Onnaney Centre, and wend your way westward to the course.

Arrival time is 6:20am for tee-off at 6.35am. The number of the Pro Shop at Mcleod is 3376 3922.

Mcleod Country Golf Club is a ladies club, so it's appropriate that we're playing there on Mothers Day. However, the early start will leave you plenty of time to get home for lunch with your mother or children as appropriate, so using Mothers Day as an excuse not to play is not acceptable! So there!!

Oh, just remembered, there'll be a really, really short AGM immediately after the game, for which we hope all players will remain. The committee is looking for new members; please think about volunteering!

I want to offer my apologies for not playing in the 4-club competition at Logan earlier this month. As penance, I will play at Mcleod with just 5 clubs. The results at Logan suggest that the lack of clubs didn't affect the top players' scores anyway!

Please let me know as soon as possible whether or not you will be playing at Mcleod. If you say you are playing, and then discover you can't play, please let me or Paul know in advance.

I look forward to seeing you at Mcleod and to a great day.

Logan City Golf Club Game – 11th April 2010

(Hole numbers 10 through 27 played)

12 players made it for the changed format game of 3 clubs and a putter. One of those not making the day was Rodney, whose idea it was to play this 4 club contest. Now normally you’d expect me to be unkind & ridicule Rodney for not being there, but as it turned out I think most people had a reasonable game.

The first nine was played in fairly comfortable conditions with the sun staying hidden behind a gentle mist; I think I’m right in saying the better scoring was to be had in this first nine judging by the cards I saw at the end of the day.

Then the sun came out, the humidity went up & the games started to show the cracks. Even though we were only dragging around bags with 4 clubs, it was still very draining on our physical & mental resourses.

The results are as follows:

NTP 20th hole George Chapman
NTP 24th hole Owen Wright
LD (ladies) Janine Walker
LD (men's) Ian Smith

1st place on 45 points George Chapman
2nd place on 40 points Ashutosh Misra
3rd (on count back) 40 pts Paul Lockwood-Lee

Most other scores were up there as well, so the combination of the 4 club format twined with Logan’s set up made for a good day.

Many thanks to all those who turned up & we hope to see you at Mcleod on the 9th of May, where we will also hold the annual AGM (only takes about 10 mins). If anyone wishes to take up a position on the committee then by all means come along and throw your hat in the ring, we are always grateful for any volunteers.

Also thanks to Logan City Golf Club for the good social club package they offered.

See you soon,
Captain Paul.
